Lakeland Queen Cruise (1hr)

We had a fantastic experience on the lakeland queen cruise. The weather was great and the crew gave us a very warm welcome on board. The ship is pretty iconic and impressively well maintained and in good condition. The sailing started on the dot at 1pm and our cruise captain was awesome who gave an excellent and clear commentary with a brief history of all attractions of the rotorua lakes region as we passed them by. We were absolutely thrilled with our experience and would very highly recommend every tourist to do this cruise as a MUST DO activity while in rotorua.

Good fun for all ages

We were part of a large group with ages varying from 2 to 80 year old and everyone had a good time. Captain is awesome allowing kids into his cabin and giving good commentary about surrounding area. There is a good selection of food and drinks on board .
