From the initial enquiry with Flagship Cruises, all correspondence was prompt and courteous. We were due to arrive on 29th December but because we missed our connection in Dubai (plane was late) we ended up not arriving until lunch-time on 31st. We were really tired and fed up especially as our suitcases didn't turn up. However from the moment we... More

From the moment you step on board you are pampered with a glass of your favourite champers, wine or beer and for the entire cruise it is kept topped up with smiling perfection. Add the numerous finger food delights served during the evening and we are certain it is worth every dollar paid. As seen in other reviews the vessel... More

First, a clarification: My intention here is to review our New Years Eve cruise on the Commissioner II which we booked via Anyboat.com.au. The photos attached to Trip Advisors reviews of Commissioner II are all different boats. I was redirected to review Flagship with whom I did not do business. That said, our night on the Commissioner II was terrific.... More

Belated review but this was a superb night out on the Harbour viewing both fireworks. It was so much better than my previous years experience at the Botanic Gardens, uncomfortable and crowed and poorly catered for. This cruise was not overcrowded and the service was excellent with copious food and drinks. My only issue is for myself in that you... More

We held a corporate event for our customers aboard AQA so it was important that everything went well. The vessel itself was spectacular and the food was awesome, but the thing that really made our event a success was the amazing staff and their willingness to provide our guests with everything they needed.

We went on the Top Cat Catamaran for my Hens night, a group of 16 girls. Bruce and Shannon were our Captain and Deck Hand, they were awesome and really looked after us. The weather turned ugly and we had a massive thunderstorm but Bruce made us feel safe and kept us dry. It was wondeful and I would definitely... More

What a Night !! Very rarely do events exceed my expectations but this New Years Eve Cruise aboard the Commissioner 11 certainly did. You read and hear so many horror stories of overcrowding, poor service, average food etc but not on this cruise. They purposely avoid overcrowding by restricting bookings to a maximum of 90-100, when normally it can accommodate... More

Words cannot adequately describe our experience on New Years Eve. It was just stunning, fabulous, wonderful etc etc. we were collected at Darling Harbour at 7.30pm and returned around 1.15am. Throughout the evening we were served a variety of very yummy and substantial finger food, including oysters, prawns, scallops, chicken and beef satays, curry boxes to name a few. The... More

We are from Paris and wanted a really special day on Sydney Harbour so we splashed out on a 4 hour cruise for just the four of us on "Commissioner II" - a classic timber boat about 90 foot long. My children dubbed it "The Billionaire Boat" and it didn't disappoint. It's very well-maintained and very well-appointed. But the best... More

We had our wedding on board the Commissioner II and couldn't have been happier. Michael and his team are friendly and professional, they were always available to answer all our questions right from the booking.

Staying in Balmain

Neighbourhood Profile
Balmain
Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and be enchanted with this picturesque and eclectic waterside area. A stroll down Darling Street will take you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens and shops offering wholefood products and organic cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates from the hotels at night. As the place where the Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has commonly been known for its “working class culture”. It has evolved into a health-conscious heaven with a laid back attitude, offering one of the most vibrant food and bar scenes in Sydney.
