Following 1.6 metres of rainfall in three days, the waterfalls of Milford Sound were spectacular. On day three of our New Zealand cruise, we sailed into the Sound, aboard the Royal Caribbean luxury liner, Ovation of the Seas and were met by a couple of other ships. Probably to pickup and drop off passengers and stayed stationery for a couple of hours.
The waterfalls were in abundance on both sides of the sheer cliffs of the three sounds, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound. Our Captain sailed quite close to Bowen Falls, where the water was pounding down the cliff face in a torrent. He turned the ship around so that both sides got a spectacular view.
