Our experience on the...
, Jan 2022
Our experience on the Million Dollar cruise..was just that a million dollars!!! We were informed, educated and entertained during our whole cruise. The captain was absolutley wonderful. He certainly knows his stuff. He was very trusting of people in general especially how the 'help yourself' service for snacks and drinks were made available. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

Thank you Kaye for your glowing review. Yes people find it amazing that we have an honesty box on board - it's never really been a problem which is fantastic in this day and age.
Relaxing Cruise
, Jan 2022
Lovely cruise, friendly staff. Only issue was the lack of safety info in case of problems. Other than that a very relaxing afternoon activity.

Hi Sally, All our captains give you a safety briefing at the start of each cruise telling you where the lifejackets are and that you are to listen to his instructions in case of a emergency. Also telling you how to come down the stairs from the upstairs deck. There is not much more to tell you. Good to hear you did enjoy the cruise though.
A brilliant cruise and Captain!

Awesome cruise.

The pace of the cruise, the informative history of what we saw, the helpfulness of the staff. Recommended this. Relaxing informative and fun. The smaller number of seats meant not crowds of people and the bar and sunshine a bonus.
Value for money.

Was great lunch good guide captain crew really nice and helpful, views were beautiful, waterfalls excellent
icon Response from Host , Sep 2020
thanks Wendy but I think you have the wrong activity as we at Million Dollar Cruise do not have lunch on our cruise nor are there any waterfalls in Queenstown. I think you perhaps mean Milford Sound. Cheer Betty

Had perfect weather and our skipper Eddie was great with everything he told us. Really made it ten out of ten and highly recommended.

Hi John, been a bit slow replying to people as a lot going on at the moment. So pleased that Eddie did a great job and thanks also for the 10/10 - Fantastic.
An Amazing Way to Relax on a Warm and Sunny Day in Queenstown
, Jun 2020
The Million Dollar Cruise was probably the highlight of my trip to Queenstown. It was so relaxing and informative. I went on a perfect day. It was so bright and the views were absolutely breathtaking. The captain Matt was an awesome host, very friendly and humerous and gave an excellent and very educational commentary throughout the entire duration of the cruise. Would definitely recommend doing this and I am definitely doing it again when I come back.
