overnight cruise

19 Oct 2008 ashlie said

Hi, <BR>just wondering about the overnight cruise in Milford sound, that we go on in the Grand Explorer trip. does our luggage go on board? or are we required to have a small overnight bag for the trip? i'm not really planning on bringing a backpack at this stage. i have an over the shoulder bag perfect for during the day, but dont think it would suffice for putting clothes & toiletries in.<BR>Any suggestions?

    Is this the same for the scenic southern tour?

    NZ, Australia, & North American tours are Modulated Tours. ie: Scenic Southern, Explorer, Adventurer are the same tour group, except some participants have a shorter tour. So to answer your question, yes, everyone that tours the south island does the same tour with the same restrictions.

    take small overnight bag or even a plastic bag with your stuff in it. for my overnight cruise i took:
    bathers, toothbrush, soap, clean undies, jumper, singlet.
    i wore on me:
    jeans, skivvy, cardigan, thongs, hat, scarf, leggings
    in my normal bag i had:
    suncream, camera, money etc.

    and be warned: it gets FREEZING with the wind.
