With a footfall of over a million people from around the world, Sydney Harbour is one of the most popular locations to ring in the New Year. For uninterrupted views of the annual fireworks extravaganza, pre-booking your NYE plans is the wisest option. Sydney Harbour being at the heart of all festivities, attracts swarms of crowds eager to catch a glimpse of the fireworks display. Bypass the congested shore-fronts and enjoy a premium location on board a New Year’s Eve cruise in Sydney. In 2021, however, there will be strict restrictions in place due to the pandemic. You can still opt for a New Year’ Eve cruise as it offers a guaranteed safe space for celebration. 

These Cruises offer the best of both worlds, with unparalleled fireworks display views as you spend time with friends and family while indulging in a premium dining experience. Since most of the New Year’s Eve cruises are pre-booked and there is a cap on the number of tickets sold, you wouldn’t have to scuffle just to catch a glimpse of the extravaganza. Ever so often, the best vantage points are occupied from the morning of 31st December with crowds thronging to block their spot to enjoy the show. With an NYE cruise however, once your booking is confirmed, all you have to do is show up at the designated spot at boarding time and you’re guaranteed a night of fun and frolic. 

The New Year’s Eve festivities on board our cruises may even include DJ music and dancing, entertainment options like a cabaret show and delicious food that is prepared by our experienced chefs. Once on board your NYE cruise, get ready to end 2021 in style. The cruiseliner is most often positioned in an exclusive zone ideal for viewing the fireworks. From 7pm, hourly flame and light shows amp up the anticipation for the grand fireworks displays at midnight. The Family Fireworks which is an eight-minute long display commences at 9pm. Rockets fire across the illustrious Sydney Harbour enchanting all spectators with its magic. The timing allows children to participate in New Year festivities without interfering with their bedtime.  

During the Sydney NYE cruise, experience luxury like never before. Once escorted to your reserved tables, enjoy the array of delectable dishes offered as part of a deluxe dinner with the finest selection of seafood, meats, salads and desserts. Indulge in conversations and end-of-the-year revelry with your loved ones. Beverage menus ranging from premium wines to local beers to soft drinks and fresh juices will keep you well-hydrated and in the highest of spirits for sure. Stroll up to the outer decks with a glass of bubbles in your hands to take a closer look at the shimmering harbour. 

The build-up leads to the penultimate event of the evening which is the Midnight Fireworks Display, an example of pyro-choreography at its finest. Starting at 11:59pm, the 12-minute duration of the display holds the attention of all those gathered, transforming Sydney Harbour into a kaleidoscope of brilliant colours. The choreographed melodic synchronisation of the display captivates audiences watching the show, whether in person or on TV. The cruises will also position near the major harbour attractions—the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House—to see the glorious illuminated facades! You are sure to find a sweet spot on board the Sydney NYE cruise, where you can make your New Year’s Eve wish and moments to take down the memory lane.
