Had a wonderful time on Mariner. The Captain was informative and pleasant. Nothing was a trouble for the crew they were caring, knowledgeable and efficient. We managed to arrive in beautiful weather and awoke to find it had rained during the night. the next morning the Sound was amass with waterfalls mountains and wildlife, truly beautiful.

Stunning views immediately coming out of the harbor. Nice waterfall right onto the ocean, with the boat
going right in close. Kayaking, tender boat ride, swimming off the boat all included. Food was good.
Room was large enough for one night. Too bad breakfast had to be at 7AM so we could be off the boat by 9
so another two hour cruise could be accomodated. I would strongly recommend this cruise. Very nice.

Brilliant way to see Milford Sound when all the daytrippers have gone. Great ship, comfortable cabin, plenty of good food, breakfast and dinner. Commentary very knowledgable, access to Captain's bridge for a chat. Milford Sound is spectacular, highly recommended.

Milford Sound is not huge and could all be seen on a day cruise but for an overnight cruise is different and out of ordinary but not cheap. Staff very good and knowledgable. Accommodation small but adequate and well equipped. Food plentiful and fairly high quality.

On this very comfortable boat you get a good introduction to this amazing Fjordland area with its dramatic imountains and waterfalls. The naturalist on board gives an excellent commentary. The food was remarkably good. The crew were all polite and helpful. This is an experience not to be missed.

The overnight cruise was wonderful and a great way to wrap up our New Zealand trip! The crew was fun and very well educated about Milford Sound. The food was outstanding (an unexpected bonus), and the cabins were very comfortable and relatively spacious for a cruise ship. Milford sound is definitely a must-do, and was absolutely breathtaking even though it rained most of the trip. The on-board activities were fun - we opted to go on the tender craft instead of kayaking since it was raining. The tender craft turned out to be a blast though - we even got to see a wild penguin! Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it!

Worth the expense. Even though the mooring had recently broken and we had to go back to the jetty for overnight anchoring the rest of the experience more than made up for it. Will look at doing this again in the future.

Can't imagine a trip to New Zealand without this. Such fantastic scenery. Even the drive there from Queenstown was breathtaking. The sound, the cruise ship, the crew, the food...were all great. The ship and the terminal area where we boarded were spotlessly clean. Great job. Everyone. GO!
