We would not consider any other cruise company when we have experienced the best on every occasion we book with Flagship Cruises

Very well organised, food excellent and all arrangements could not have been better.

From the initial quotation through to the events of the night, I found the Flagship staff and the boat crew to be very accommodating with any requests and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Great food, wine and service. Everything was excellent - our guests loved every minute.

Our very valued clients were most impressed. This was the sort of upmarket function we wanted to have and your company excelled in delivering the service. We will not hesitate to recommend your company & services. Please thank your team on our behalf.

Could not fault a thing

Your team onboard could not have done or said another thing to have made the trip more enjoyable. They were wonderful. Looking after a diverse group of people. The food was beautifully presented and served. Portions were generous and the quality very good.

We have just booked for next year!! The crew were great! Always obliging and always there to fill our glasses and offer food! Thank you!

We have chartered five different vessels over the last 10 years and the Commissioner II has been by far the best for comfort, layout - in fact everything. You know you have had a great time when 4 hours goes by so fast. Couldn't recommend it higher.
