    Well worth the ride and was good coming back to queens town at 9.30pm
    Wood recommend the knight cruise

    The ship itself is historically interesting. The downside of our trip out to Mackenzie station was the incredible number of passengers that were crammed onto the ship. When most of these passengers disembarked at the Station, the return trip was more more enjoyable.

    We experienced a relaxing an comfortable excursion on the TSS Earnslaw. They scenery on Lake Wakatipu was breathtaking. My fiancé’ also enjoyed the history of this wonderful ship while I sipped away on the best cappuccino I have ever had.

    Lovely relaxing cruise on Lake Wakatipu. Amazing scenery of the snow capped mountains. Grab a glass of wine, sit back and relax and enjoy this wonderful cruise.

    My partner and I took this boat cruise, I dont want to sound too rude but it was the least entertaining thing while in Queenstown. I found out more about this boat while i was on a different boat tour, which i think is pretty sad. Theres no information about this boat and its history whilst onboard and the only real interaction we had with staff was when someone came around to try and sell us a photo. Very dissapointed with this boat trip and would not recommend to anyone heading to Queenstown.
