There were four ladies and we chose the one hour afternoon tea cruise. It was lovely. The scones were beautiful with either butter or jam and cream. There was also some information about the Murray over the speakers as we cruised.

What a nice relaxing way to break up a long trip. A little bit expensive but it's to keep the little old thing going and serviced. Nice old fashioned experience. Will do again but probably every 2yrs given its different every time like that.
