Absolutely loved this. Fantastic trip with great scenery and super friendly crew. One of the highlights of our honeymoon. The food was amazing and my partner enjoyed the seafood especially. We will be back to so this again. So worth the money.

I was fortunate enough to do the Earnslaw Steamship cruise twice over a week. The first on a large private business group with around 90 people for a Banquet Dinner, and then several days later with my wife on a Gourmet lunch trip. The food selection was HUGE, and I imagine there couldn't be anyone that would come away hungry, or not enjoying their meal. The staff were very welcoming. It was enjoyable taking time out to wander around the farm seeing the animals and particularly the highland cows. Seeing the sheep dogs work was also very cool.

Fabulous experience of trip on a grand lady and superb lunch. All the staff were very professional and friendly. Despite an unfortunate turn of events whist docking and delaying our embarkation, all staff were reassuring and apologetic. Highly recommended.

Never disappoints. This was at least my third trip in 20 years and each was memorable. The scenery of course never changes and neither does the thrill of riding aboard an historic gem! But the time and day and one’s mood make each trip different. Crew always helpful. Vessel always immaculate. Must do in Queenstown.
