We decided to take a breakfast cruise with our 2 young children while staying in Rotorua recently. I rang up to book the day before and the man I spoke to on the phone was very friendly and helpful.
It was a cold, foggy morning so was nice to board the boat which was nice and warm. We were welcomed aboard by the friendly staff and shown our seats. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and the food was delicious.
We couldn't see much at first as it was quite foggy but once the fog lifted the view was better. It was lovely cruising around the lake. The captain shared some great information about the lake and the area.
Our 2.5 year old got to go up to where the captain was sitting and driving. He got to put on the captains hat and 'drive' the boat which he was really excited about. All the staff members were lovely and really good with the children. Had a lovely chat with one of the staff members who also rushed after us once we left the boat to give us some things we had left behind! Service above and beyond.
Though cold, it was nice to go outside and stand at the front of the boat to enjoy the outlook. Was a lovely morning and went too quickly!!
