Ended up on the 2pm cruise which actually includes some time at Walter Peak so it became a 2 hour trip rather than the midday one which is only 1.5 hours for same price. Didn’t seem to be many on the trip over but the ship was packed on return journey from those who had done other activities from the midday cruise. Staff provided excellent service. Piano player still on board but not singing...I guess due to .Covid. It is an iconic thing to doin ?Queenstown especially on a beautiful spring day. They do offer a discount if you show your Gold card!

Thank you for joining us on the TSS Earnslaw this month. We are trying to put on a range of different experiences for our guests and it's great to hear that you enjoyed the 30 minute stop over at Walter Peak. Hopefully one day we will continue the piano sing-along tradition as it was always crowd favourite.
If you are ever on the Earnslaw again, feel free to put in a song request and start the singalong yourself! I'm sure the staff and other guests would love to participate.

The food was amazing, better than any wedding we have ever been at!
The selection was incredible and tasted so good. 5 different meats as well as vegetables and salads. Definitely fit for a King. Overall an 11 out of 10.

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.

We were walking around the peir and saw this advertised.it looked like value for money so we climbed aboard the TSS Earnslaw and steamed across lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak. Its actually amazing to see this old technology at work in todays world, (the words built to last certainly apply).
The meal certainly lived up to its expectations and I definitely ate too much. Thankfully there was time to walk a bit of it off exploring the station setups.
This food, scenery, history and real life experience is recommended as value for money and a must do activity.
