Thanks for correcting, sorry my mistake. I just mean someone likes CC more just because it has more soilder ( ignore that "pirate" minifig on the Flagship)

No need to apologize , you got a point that TLG unfortunately keeps giving us less and less minifigs. But yeah, "just because it has more soldiers" is kind of a stupid reason to me too.
For a collection/army, sure the CC has better figs, but the IF has a much more interresting minifig selection and is much better for a stand-alone set, one of the few sets where the "pirate" is used as a regular sailor for the "good guys" (I think the only other set where the fig is not used as a pirate is 6277 imperial trading post).

Blue is a royal colour, so the sails remain flawless to me.
Imperial Flagship has nice sails but they don't fit that well with the Pirates sails in the same scene.
However, I go for the Imperial Flagship because I find this ship one of the most elegant ships of all time even if is not that impressive in size.
Caribbean Clipper looks a bit fat, its overall shape being too round.
Maybe another hull added there would have change my opinion.

The other thing I like better about the Clipper is that despite its smaller size it was still a match for the Barracuda (Dark Shark) as it carried the same number of guns. The Imperial Flagship, in contrast, was hopelessly outgunned by the Skulls Eye Schooner (I hate that American name as it clearly isn't a schooner).

Despite of that, the Caribbean has some advantages: More space, better minifigs (I don't like that sailor of the Sea Lion, he should have been a soldier) the cabin (the IF has no cabin, what a shame!), and a little hold.
Nevertheless, in conclusion I vote for the Imperial Flagship.

the imperial flagship may not be a flagship but those sails are nice, on the other hand I like how the CC has two courses of sails on the foremast and the wide cabin is cool.

I can sign this, I voted the Imperial Flagship, however the other one would be easy to improve with some slight changes/additions.

I just got back into Lego, and recently bought the IF so that my BSB has something to battle (the Clipper belongs to my brother). Maybe someday I will be able to do a side by side comparison of the two. One thing I definitely don't like about the IF are the sails. Those crossed cannons are just awful looking. The ship itself does look neat, and I can't wait to build it.

the sail got a new form and it is difficoult to fix that.
