I had an enjoyable time on the Milford Sound Scenic Cruise

I had an enjoyable time on the Milford Sound Scenic Cruise. It was definitely worth the money as the scenery was breathtaking. The cruise was not too crowded and that made the trip a better one. The cruise even went near a waterfall and stopped beside some fur seals. What an experience!

Excellent cruise on the water

Excellent cruise on the water, would have been better if we went further out to sea and we didn't have to listen to the Chinese translation of all the commentary.
