Great trip and a hot buffet breakfast included for the price. We saw dolphins and seals. Although it was cold and rainy - excellent trip, many falls. Hot coffee and tea available on a cold day. Bring an umbrella.

It was cloudy and raining when we went in January. We were told it is hardly ever clear like the pictures! It is still spectacular though. Worth going after 3pm to avoid the crowds.

We did the Discover More cruise which includes entrance to the observation deck. We expected a bit more of that. We found it not really interesting. Also we wished that the route of the cruise was a bit longer. Most of the scenery can be seen from land.

Fiord was wonderful, even if the weather was foggy. To go on a cruise is the only was to discover this amazing and unique place even if it is expensive.

We did the cruise with Southern Discoveries in Milford Sound. Very nice view of the fjord (the ship is too big and crowded).

The ship was very crowded but the captain gave us enough time to enjoy the waterfalls and seals.
