What a lovely experience. Cruising sedately up the river for an hour, then docked for an hour to enjoy the supplied picnic and have a look around the little vilage of Upokongaro before returning to Wanganui. The crew were on the Waimarie were excellent, the commentary was informative without being too much and the singer, delighful. She has a lovely voice and we were entertained with everything from Adele to Carole King, delightful. The Waimarie was perfect for this and even though we had over 100 passengers on board it wasn't too many. It was very interesting to be able to go into the engine room and see how things were done 100 years ago. We can also recomend the coffee and scones, yum.
