Tranquil cruise

The experience was a relaxing, serene cruise with stunning scenery on board a modern, comfortable, clean, spacious boat. Due to COVID there were less tourists and social distancing on board meant there were only 4 groups on board our trip. Had it been at full occupancy, the experience would have been much different. The cheese board and wine were a nice touch to accompany the gorgeous surroundings. An hour and a half was plenty of time and enough to get a sense of the area. Nice not to have to commit to a half day.

Highlight of Queenstown trip

We booked our cruise before leaving Christchurch, taking a risk with weather etc. It couldn't have been better. From the helpful young staff at the office, who helped us with where to park, to the staff aboard the boat, all of them seemed to go to the next level with Customer Service. Our Cheeseboard with wine was great - often asked if there was anything else we needed. The hour and a half seemed to go quickly. Absolutely stunning views of the mountains and Mt Nicholas and Walter Peak Station. The commentary was very welcome - maybe just needed to be a little louder. All in all, I highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting a relaxed 'special' activity in Queenstown.

Dull

The crew were nice but the cruise itself was rather dull. Not much to see, not much commentary (because there wasn't that much to see?) We had booked the wine and cheeseboard option. You literally get one wine and a rubbish cheeseboard with the bare minimum. Dried up olives, mini gherkins and dried apricots all without even a bit of olive oil, average cheap cheeses and crap rice crackers. It doesn't have to be top notch but a little more effort could have been put in at the same cost price for the organisers.

Needs more wine

Beautiful scenery, however, would be nice if we were told what type of cheeses, need single platters per person not shared. And only one wine, need more wine. Would like a wine taster especially since its nearly $100 p.p
