Ferry to Wellington reviews

  • "Interesting"

    We did not travel earlier by so big ferry, it was very exciting. The weather was not so good, but we enjoyed the trip.

  • "Very pleasant crossing - but not for all!!"

    Really enjoyed the crossing, despite it being a tad choppy. There were those around us who suffered, but we were fine. Check in was straightforward and easy, as was reclaim of baggage at the other end. Only gripe we have is that we had to wait so long, in the cold, for the bus to pick us up. Two Bluebridge buses dropped passengers off at the train station who came in on the incoming ferry from Wellington, but left us sitting in a bus shelter, shivering for another 45 minutes. It would have been much better to wait in the warm departure lounge of the ferry!

  • "Friendly ferry service from Picton to Wellington"

    Punctual service from Picton to Wellington through the picturesque Queen Charlotte Sound. Friendly and efficient staff in all areas from dock to loading to onboard ship. Cooked breakfast was well prepared and delivered piping hot. Overall good value for money although was more complicated to book from outside of NZ.

  • "Are we moving yet?"

    I was very early for my ferry crossing and the lady booking the vehicles very kindly put me on an earlier boarding, this was great! I was on board the ferry for over half an hour and lying down, I'd had a long journey prior to boarding the ferry and I thought "I hope we start moving soon!" it seemed like forever after driving for many hours. I got up to look around and found that in fact we had been sailing for almost the entire 30 minutes; I was very impressed. The ship was so calm you just didn't know you were moving!!! And it got away exactly on time :) I headed for the coffee shop and the girl serving was so friendly and the shop was so well stocked with goodies I could have easily spent more time on board. It was a very enjoyable and fast ferry crossing.
