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.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Wonderful staff,food and accommodation and spectacular scenery.
Unforgettable tour. Can't recommend this tour enough. Everything was first class. Road trip to Milford Sound must rate as one of the best in the world.
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!
Amazing is the best way to describe the overnight Milford Sound cruise. The weather was great and the scenery spectacular. The food was great and the accommodation comfortable. I would highly recommend doing the trip.
The overnight cruise on Milford Sound was one of the highlights of our self drive tour of the NZ south island. The ship, the crew, the food and the Sound itself were fantastic. I would recommend this cruise as the best way to see and fully appreciate Milford Sound.
This trip is a gem. Service is top notch and the views R spectacular. Cabins are spacious and food is great. I would do it again.
What a wonderful trip! We were lucky to have a rainy day so the waterfalls were amazing and then it cleared overnight for beautiful views of the mountains in the morning. Accommodations and food were first rate and the crew and passengers were knowledgeable fun and friendly.
Great trip on the Mariner the crew were all great. Accommodation was very comfortable and the scenery well simply magnificent. Catering was excellent. Overall it was one of our highlights from our recent trip to the South Island. I would recommend the overnight Mariner trip through Milford Sound good value, great crew and beautiful scenery
Absolutely fabulous experience. The crew could not have done more for the passengers - they were fabulous. Cabins are very comfortable and the overnight cruise is one not to be missed.
We took the overnight cruise, it was breathtakingly beautiful....staff were friendly and amusing, food magnificent, My husband especially loved kayaking from the boat. It was even better than we had imagined.
