This is one of the best ways to see NZ.
Better than a camper van, you don't have to steer the boat, don't even have to row, unless you want to.
Two days of sea-relaxing before-hand then immersing into the land thing via the vertical landscape of the fjords.
Princess cabins are all good, all well-maintained
( they're cleaned daily, just like your place is ).
They look out, or don't,
they have an obstructing lifeboat, or not,
have a balcony door to let in cool breezes, frigid gales, warming zephyrs, or torrid steam, or you can shut it.
all according to the size of your wallet
My biggest whinge when I did the Princess email review was that in both cabins of a back to back, the toilet seat was a bit loose. I daresay someone somewhere has a new socket wrench.
Of course it be excellent, I live here.
It was a Sunday. Wellington was shut, save for the tide coming in, the Dragon Boat people, the cable car, and BotGardens, and the Museum.
I'd take the museum every time.
It Rained too. not much, but blowy too. I lost my hat !!
Who knew ?
