    Arriving in the Picton region

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: As we neared Picton, it was the little speed boats and fishing craft which we saw, before we sighted the harbour.
    Those and huge rolling green hills, which were not as green as I was expecting though.

    The views were just spectacular, and I'd had no idea that so much of the cruise journey would be spent with land on both sides of us, like cruising in a channel.
