Milford Sounds Cruising on board the Volendam. Scenic Cruising through the beautiful hills and inlets of the South Island of New Zealand is defiantly a highlight on a South Pacific voyage on a Cruise Ship. The Milford Sounds area is much like the Marlborough and Queen Charlotte Sounds with fewer boats sailing and touring in the area. The wildlife is pretty much the same, with huge amounts of dolphins, birds and sea life. There are numerous amounts of waterfalls running down the hills and cliffs at the waters edge.Can you believe that we get paid to do this kind of stuff! Its amazing isn't it. Travelling around the beautiful New Zealand seeing wildlife, sea life and hills covered in native bush. I personally can’t dream of anything more spectacular that this!
