Met Expectations

We enjoyed the cruise from beginning to end. From the terminal counter to the galley, Go Orange staff are friendly and courteous - which is important, staff can make it or break it. The boat itself is spacious and comfortable with plenty of seating inside or out. The commentary along the way touches on points of interest, but no more than that - so you can get on with enjoying the views. I would recommend Go Orange for anyone that is looking for a really great day out on the water.

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.
