The history of APT Cruising


In the northern suburbs of 1920s Melbourne, cable tram drivers went on an extended strike. Bill McGeary, a 24-year-old mechanic, seized the opportunity and converted his much-loved truck into a bus in order to transport commuters from the tram-starved suburb of Northcote to the tram and train terminus in Clifton Hill. This was the birth of McGeary’s Parlour Coaches.

In the years following, Bill grew his business with the help of his family and began offering conducted day tours and themed weekends. During the 1970s, the company was renamed Australian Pacific Touring and moved beyond its traditional coach touring to include luxury train and cruise ship travel. But it wasn’t until 2005 that the river cruise line we know and love, APT Cruising, was established. For over 15 years, APT has been offering guests a memorable way to discover the rivers of the world.

APT Cruising’s award-winning fleet of contemporary ships offers fine dining, unforgettable destinations, stunning accommodation and attentive staff. Fully immerse yourself in life on board or learn from knowledgeable tour guides that guarantee a visit to shore will be filled with insight.


On board experience

Entertainment

From the spacious staterooms to the opulent owner’s suites, accommodation options aboard APT’s river cruise ships offer the perfect place to prepare for an exciting day of exploration or to relax after an evening of fine cuisine. Up on the sun deck, many ships in the fleet feature a swimming pool or whirlpool, where you can unwind after a busy day. Or soak up the everchanging scenery from the spacious lounge - a great area to socialise with like-minded passengers!

Dining

It’s not just the scenery that regularly changes, it’s the menu in each restaurant too. Master chefs select the finest local ingredients to create a variety of sumptuous meals for you to enjoy. Choose from two dining options; the main dining room where you can embark on a culinary journey with regional flavours and the more intimate setting of the Chef’s Table, which savours the flavours of a dégustation-style menu.

River cruises allow you to dock in the heart of your chosen destination, which makes exploring by foot super easy.
