Milford Sound Mariner Overnight Cruise from Te Anau
Reviewed by: Bruce T, October 2014
The tour was a fantastic experience. Great crew who looked after our every need. Good food and wine in the evening. The sleeping quarters were a good size and being at the bottom of the boat meant a gentle rocking that put us to sleep nicely. Time frames around the activities were well planned. The morning was the highlight when we were taken towards the entrance with the weather adding to the experience. All the rain had the sides of the sound alive with falling water.

Brilliant. Excellent tour. Lots to see, good food and well looked after by a great crew.
Great having dolphins swimming alongside for 30 minutes too. Could have reached out and touched them.

Our trip on the Milford Mariner overnight cruise was magical from start to finish.
The crew on board were so helpful, nothing was a bother. The cabin was very good and the food terrific.
This would have to be the best part of our recent South Island trip. I would recommend this overnight cruise to anyone.

Absolutely fantastic- the highlight of our trip to New Zealand- the bus ride to Milford Sound was incredible ( glad we decided not to drive ourselves), great views and excellent commentary. Overnight on the Mariner was excellent- delicious food, comfortable cabins and the commentary from staff was knowledgable and very entertaining. I will never forget our trip to Milford sound- surely one of the wonders of the world.

Overall the experience was wonderful but was mislead into believing it was 2 days. However, the cruise wasn't even 1 day as it began at 4.00pm and ended at 9.00am the next morning. The worst thing was that we let the supplier know we were celebrating our 34th Wedding Anniversary and they appointed us to Cabin 1 which was the worst cabin on the whole boat. It was right next to the engine room on the bottom level. After much insistence on being moved, an attendant managed to move us to another cabin on the same level but it had single beds. This was really disappointing but I guess we got some sleep not being right next to the engine room.
