Hidden on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island is one of the most striking fiords the world has to offer, Milford Sound. Unsurprisingly described as the eighth wonder of the world, Milford Sound plays host to some of the finest flowing waterfalls and effortless glacier-calved cliffs, peering through ice white clouds. There are few finer sights.
We all dream of waking up in paradise, immersed in natural wonder. However, Mother Nature can be fickle, enticing sightseers into making rigorous journeys to earn such honor. Luckily, Milford Mariner’s Overnight Cruise provides the luxury of a relaxing voyage, inviting travellers to sit back, relax and enjoy the utopian sights without any fuss.
Milford Sound Overnight Cruise offers an assembly of magnificent scenes. From the moment your foot touches the deck of Milford Mariner the magic begins. Drifting along the fiord there is ample time to absorb the wonder of rainforests, mountains and marine life. With nature guides on board, the natural beauty can be truly appreciated. Furthermore, the observation lounge and open deck provide the perfect sanctuary to soak up the breathtaking scenery and offer the chance to spot the likes of seals, dolphins and maybe even penguins.
After a relaxing cruise, the Milford Mariner will anchor in a sheltered cove, where if you’re feeling adventurous, you can opt to join the nature guide on a mini exploration in tender crafts or kayaks. Alternatively, you can unwind on the deck and simply enjoy chatting to others and soaking up your surroundings.
In the evening you can look forward to a delicious buffet and drinks served in the dining saloon. Here you can reminisce about the day’s experiences on the Milford Mariner Cruise with new found friends. Or if you’d like a quiet evening to yourselves, you can always retreat to your private cabin with a drink to sit under the stars.
As if waking up to some of the most stunning views imaginable isn’t enough, the Milford Mariner Overnight Cruise experience comes with all your home comforts: private cabins, ensuite bathrooms and a tasty breakfast cooked fresh on board.
The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.
Mr & Mrs Hall, Magnificent New Zealand
We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
