Perspective

Both my 23 year old son and I came away disappointed, found the drive there to be more interesting. On our 15 day trip we travelled around a fair bit of the South Island and on balance Milford Sound just didn't appeal to us. Perhaps if it was nice sunny day (was overcast) with plenty of rainfall just prior then the cruise may well have been worth the long drive. Also, when (like I have, my son hasn't) you have seen the Grand Canyon and it's amazing topograpghy, lived near Niagara Falls (put's the three waterfalls we saw to shame) then I think it may also come down to perspective and I can see why other people may well enjoy it. Cruise staff were great and fish and chips were a welcome bonus.

Sorry to hear that Milford Sound didn't impress you as much as we've hoped. Glad that you still enjoyed the free fish & chips and our friendly crew on board.
