    About The Lakeland Queen

    The Lakeland Queen was built locally in 1986 and modeled on the famous Mississipi riverboats making her ideal for the shallower waters of Lake Rotorua. A genuine stern wheel paddle steamer, she is powered by a 240 hp Cummins diesel engine driving an 8 bladed stern paddle. A true icon of the region the recently refurbished 'Grand Old Lady of the Lake' can cater for up to 250 seated guests and is a real must do during your Rotorua Visit.

    Cruise of the lake

    We had perfect weather for this cruise which made watching the sun go down a delight. There were a couple of misleading messages in the advert & the website that was slightly disappointing. When we booked, we weren't told that there was going to be a private function also on the boat & a casino night. The menu that was advertised was nothing like what was served. I was looking forward to the selection that was described on the website. Although, in saying this, the dinner was lovely. The staff were friendly & helpful. Overall it was a good experience, but just slightly disappointing that what we thought we were getting, we didn't. Thanks, Rachel

    Very cool, such a lovely night and beautiful weather! The only thing that bothered me was a couple of the waitresses whom were racing each other on the boat back and forth to the kitchen, was not very professional, other than that, great!
