The crew were lovely. The boat wasn't full and we were free to move around. I can't say that paying for gold seating was worth the extra money on this day. If the boat was full, I imagine it would be. We enjoyed every moment...More

Well worthwhile. This cruise takes you into Macquarie harbour to hell’s gates then back to Franklin Gordon river. We had a great commentary, walked Sarah island and a temperate rainforest and had an excellent buffet lunch.
