We arrived in Queenstown and decided on a cruise because it was cold and rainy and we just didn't want to be outside. The TSS Earnslaw is a coal fired steam ship that has been in operation for over a hundred years. There are several touring options including a sheep station and dinner at the sheep station. We opted for the cruise only. The engine room can be viewed from the seating area or from a catwalk that goes right through it. It is fun to watch them start and stop the engine on command from the bridge and watch the stoker load coal into the boilers. There was room to move around, the seats were comfortable and food and drinks were available for sale. Good way to spend a couple of hours.
