    “My experience with Suzie was very good. She professionally dealt with the booking & kept me informed. The boat just couldn't have been bettered for my party, just the right size for 50 of us. The on-board staff were helpful, cheerful & sorted things out for me... I'm still getting comments such as 'brilliant, 'wonderful' and 'fabulous' from my guests. I have no hesitation in going straight back to CPBS when I next want a boat party. Thank you all so much.”

    “Myself and my partner went on the Golden Jubilee for NYE and it was just amazing. Not too crowded, the crew were amazing, the DJ was great and the view for the fireworks was perfect. The one thing that impressed us most was that I have very rare dietary needs and the chef went above and beyond to make sure I was accommodated for which you would be surprised how many chefs wouldn't be bothered to do that for one specific person so we was blown away and extremely grateful. We would definitely do this again and recommend to anyone who is thinking of using Capital Pleasure Boats.”

The Golden Sunrise is a great boat especially when the sun is shining allowing people to hear the entertainment from the sundeck on a backdrop of London's sites along the Thames. From start to finish CPBS were very helpful and patient answering my hundred and one calls, and on the day of the party nothing was any trouble for the crew. The feedback from family and friends has been amazing and I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a special venue to celebrate an event.”

The events manager Carol made sure we had everything we need and All the staff on board went beyond the call of duty and treated us like VIP's. Their friendliness and professionalism just added to the atmosphere and helped make our son's birthday party extra special.

  • NYE 2015 Riccardo

    “Being on a boat on Thames by midnight is a perfect way to see fireworks without being forced to spend hours in the riverfront during the cold NYE night. Moreover while others are eating sandwiches and fighting to get the best position to see the show, you are getting crazy on a dance floor with perfect music and free drinks at the bars. If you are fine with a dress code casual party, a Mexican style dinner buffet served in plastic dishes, almost all inclusive bar service and many people dancing to old and new disco music, Golden Sunrise is the right place to be for welcoming the New Year in London.”

    “Myself, my husband and another couple booked the Golden Jubilee cruise for our New Years celebrations. When we arrived we waited for about 20 minutes to get onto the boat which we all thought was very disorganised as people were just pushing into the queue and there was no one marshalling this. As you can imagine this put us all in a bit of a mood and what we expected for the rest of the night but we were all pleasantly surprised. Once on board the cruise it was fabby! There were two bars that were staffed well so you never waited longer than about a minute for a drink and the meal that was served was very tasty. The Staff were all very helpful and friendly but the star of the night has to be the DJ. The DJ played the best music from the moment we arrived and really made the night it was. Overall the amazing time we had on the boat masked the minor delay in the beginning and I would highly recommend this cruise!”
