This was such an awesome trip, loved finally getting to ride on the Lady of the Lake. To see the working engines, the amazing museum and so much of the original woodwork so lovingly looked after…. and the sound when her stack is blown is truly eerie…. Fabulous service, very helpful, friendly and ordinary - the engineer walking around doing his thing, able to see the engines first hand and not too over the top with OSH thank you so much

We booked for 4 but only 1 was able to make our initial boarding check-in time so the lovely staff moved us to the next available sailing time so we all could experience the Earnslaw, this was very much appreciated. The ship/boat is quite large with lots on board to see and do, as well as the views outside are spectacular. The staff are extremely courteous and polite. Thanks for such a happy experience guys.

Very relaxing afternoon. Enjoyed the time cruising and listening to live music. Once in a lifetime experience!!

Absolutely fantastic experience, such wonderful history

Awesome trip, a real must do for Queenstown visitors.
