One of Sydney’s underrated accolades is being one of the very first cities on the planet to welcome the New Year. The world stands still, as one of the biggest pyrotechnic displays spill over the sparkling skies of Sydney Harbour, transforming it into an brilliant multi-hued extravaganza, attended by millions of spectators from far and near. These millions scour the harbour for the best lookout points, making the New Year Cruises on Sydney Harbour one of the most highly sought-after attractions during this time of the year. Why? You're about to find out.

Best vantage point to Sydney’s famous fireworks show

The surreal backdrop of Sydney’s iconic Opera House and the “coathanger” Sydney Harbour Bridge, along with the dreamy night skies of the city makes the brilliant firework displays more epic than ever. But where you choose to watch it from, decides the amount of epicness. Hailed as the best vantage point to watch the fireworks show, the New Year’s Eve (NYE) cruises will be positioned in special exclusion zones pre-designated by the NSW Maritime, offering nothing less than the absolute best views. This standout attraction is one of the major reasons why these cruises are as popular as they are now. Here’s a sneak-peek into what happens on Sydney Harbour during NYE celebrations(footage from 2019).

Unlimited happiness – food, drinks, views and entertainment

To ensure maximum guest satisfaction, we go all out with the NYE packages, offering top-quality food menus and a premium selection of beers, wines, spirits, and soft drinks. The drinks will be served the moment you board and will cease only 15 minutes prior to the end of the cruise. This makes the experience all the more spectacular - imagine you and your friends on the outer decks, sipping on your favourite wines as you enjoy a medley of harbour vista including the glowing Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Luna Park. The endless beverage package does great justice to the guests' appeal as they might be looking to get their groove on for the last day of the year, though it is advised that you drink responsibly and cause no trouble to fellow passengers.

The perfect venue for groups

New Year’s Eve is all about spending quality time with the ones closest to you. A strong point of these glamorous cruises is how they are the perfect venue for families to get together and spend intimate moments for 6+ hours. Plus, the expansive deck spaces along with sleek interiors makes it ideal for anyone to enjoy special moments with their beloved in comfort. So if you're after something with fewer crowds and maximum comfort, your choice is clear.

Unreal photo ops

If you’re looking to be in contention for the NYE click of the day, you’ll get more than enough opportunities on board to capitalise. Ringside views to the highly-anticipated fireworks show translates to unreal photo ops, so don’t forget to bring your cameras. Apart from both the family and midnight firework display, you’ll also be marvelling at the many harbourfront NYE attractions and celebrations, and we can’t stress this enough when we say this - everything looks better from the waters!

Value for money - All-inclusive packages

Last but definitely not the least,  is the convenience of a one-time payment. The all-inclusive cruises feature a deluxe dinner menu topped off with an endless beverage package of the finest Aussie drinks, and lively onboard entertainment. The package is ‘all-inclusive’ in every sense, meaning there’s no hidden costs, what you see is what you pay, no additional charges on board. So from the moment you board, you wouldn't have to worry about anything else than to have the time of your life with your loved ones!

All of this, together with an impeccable service, make the New Year’s Eve cruises in Sydney the best venue to welcome 2023, so book your seats now and gear up for an extraordinary experience.
