  • “We want to thank you and your crew for giving us a day that will live in our hearts forever. The crew cared for us and our party to the highest expectations. 

    All of our guests were so happy because of the outstanding service and the beautiful vessel, it just made our day so complete.”

  • “We want to thank you and your crew for what was an unforgettable experience aboard Escape on the night of my 60th birthday.  The crew were outstanding, and made all our party feel welcome and special from the minute we stepped on board. My wife set up this wonderful surprise for me and I did guess that a boat was involved, but I had no idea that it would be such a luxurious and beautifully crafted and equipped motor yacht.  All our family very much enjoyed the experience, – including some non-boating out of town family and right down to the grandchildren. A great family experience. Thank you.”

  • “I would like to thank the team at Cruise NZ for the wonderful afternoon they put on for our staff end of year xmas party.  From the minute we arrived until the minute we left we were very well hosted and entertained, from water sports to great food & beverage.  This is the second function we’ve had on Escape and it will be hard to top! What a great way to celebrate the past year !”

  • “I had a wonderful time on board Escape and would like to say a big thank you for arranging this and in particular for the selection of the crew. Each crew member complimented each other and they worked as a great team.  They are all so enthusiastic wanting to make it all just right for their guests.

    Escape is absolutely stunning, very comfortable and fitted out extremely well with everything one needed on board, this combined with the crew, what else could one ask for? A big thank you from us all. We all appreciated all everyone did for us.”

  • “I have been chartering boats for client and staff events for many years and can honestly say that I can’t recall better service.  A superb evening and a truly superb vessel. The attitude of both the skipper and staff was excellent. The waiting staff were professional yet friendly, very considerate, and incredibly attentive making sure that drinks were topped up or replaced without guests needing to search out the bar. Please pass on my thanks to the skipper and staff.”
