A new luxury-class boat launching in the Milford Sound early next year has promised to take cruising to a whole new level. JUCY Cruise has invested millions of dollars in the new Gem of the Sound, an impressive 29m long, three-level vessel boasting expansive glass roofs, external and covered decks, and smart dining facilities. The Gem of the Sound can easily accommodate up to 260 passengers and will operate three times daily, year-round. In line with Tourism NZ strategies to grow the luxury market, it will feature a full international-standard buffet with new and exciting menu options, which diners will enjoy seated in comfortable booths in the light-filled dining are.
