    What an experience it was!

    We were very impressed with the overall service by the staff. We were slightly late getting to the terminal having to deal with the last minute stuff around an infant and two kids. We weren't asked to collect the token to get on board, but instead they contacted the office and got us in. So it was a plus point to start things off. The boat took us through breathtaking views of the scenic mountains and pristine water. They offer complimentary tea/coffee.

    Premium Milford Cruise

    It was a wet and windy day in Milford Sound, which all added to the experience. Whilst we couldn’t see the peaks due to cloud the abundance of spectacular, cascading waterfalls more than made it for this. The boat was fantastic, and the crew were friendly, knowledgeable, encouraging, and very polite. Highly recommend this cruise.

    unexpected cruise change

    although the milford sound trip is ok in bad weather, but disappointed that premium cruise trip was changed and gathered to another normal boat without any apology just because not enough passengers.

    From JUCY Cruise - Premium Milford Sound Cruise

    Hi Chris, The road had been closed and the opening was delayed which meant we could not operate the 11:00am cruise you were originally booked on. No one had arrived by at Milford by this time. Weather related Milford road closures is no ones fault but something we all have to work around. When you checked in you were given two options, to go on the next available cruise or on the same boat your were originally booked on but on the next departure on that boat, which was at 1:45pm. You chose the next available departure. Your choice! To say that the change was made was due to insufficient numbers when it was because of the road closure is misleading and simply untrue. It was a weather related issue. You were provided choices and you chose the cruise you travelled on. JUCY Cruise Team

    Absolutely fantastic!

    Highly recommend this cruise - we have been to Milford Sound several times with different companies and the Jucy cruise far exceeded the others. The captain was knowledgeable and showed us things we’d missed on previous cruises. Sterling falls was particularly great! If you’re going to do a cruise in Milford Sound, make it this one!
