Amazing cruise

A really informative cruise with plenty of room aboard. We chose to sit right at the top. It didn't feel crowded and we got to see and photograph all the wonderful scenery. Really cool to go under the waterfalls! Lovely fish n chips meal on the way back which my two boys gobbled up. Friendly staff. Highly recommend!

"Sounds (good) to me!"

A very professionally operated cruise. Was a very pleasant way to explore and hear about this amazing part of NZ. The lower prices, (due to a combination of off peak and Covid) were appreciated, and they even threw in a free lunch with choice of fish 'n chips or a hearty soup! Great experience, great service, great drive in to get there, a top attraction, thanks.

Slight disappointment

Everything was fine, the experience was pretty decent. However I was surprised when I was boarding the ship. I booked the real journey cruise but the ship I boarded was another ship by another company Milford Orange? Or maybe it belongs to the same company I'm not sure but I felt cheated as the cruise price for both cruise ship at bookme were different.
