Party Cruise

NYE Party CruiseNew Year’s Eve cruise parties are very popular in Australia. A NYE party cruise is a boat party on the water to farewell the old year with on board celebrations to welcome in the new year! Yes, it sounds pretty awesome, because it is awesome. We’ve collated party ideas for NYE cruises around Australia! With many Australian city NYE fireworks celebrations held near or over water it makes sense that boat and cruise operators should run NYE cruise party boats!

A New Year’s Eve cruise is a special way to celebrate with friends and generally you can choose between boating options of a dinner party cruise, dance party cruise or a combination of both. And as you might expect in Sydney, a Sydney NYE Party Cruise is one of the most preferred ways to see the Sydney New Year fireworks celebrations. Hence they have some more levels of boating options. Most NYE event cities have enough options to cater for everyone. And if a commercial operator can’t cater for your NYE cruise ideas, you can always consider chartering your own boat for your own private NYE cruise.

NYE is very special and to have the ultimate NYE party it requires special ideas. Celebrating New Years on the water watching the fireworks and eating and dancing can be that very lovely and special experience. The fabulous benefits of a party cruise include that you can have all your friends in one spot. Each cruise or boat NYE event offering can be different with some providing a food in dinner or cocktail form and some providing inclusive drink packages. With others it can be pay as you go for the drinks. Make sure you check what you are buying, so there are no surprises with any ticketing.

NYE ideas on options of chartering a boat or getting on a group NYE cruise, should be based around if you want to meet other people or if you have your own big group already. Things like do you want to cater yourself, have your own New Year’s staff become a consideration.
