New Year's Eve Cruises in New York

New Year’s Eve cruises in New York are the best way to ring in the new year in style. Trust me, you don’t want to be on Times Square when the ball drops. You’ll be waiting in the cold to count down for 10 seconds at midnight. There are no bathrooms, and finding an after party isn’t easy, as all the bars and clubs charge a premium. Save yourself the hassle and disappointment and book a New Year’s Eve cruise!

Begin the year in style by enjoying the Manhattan skyline at night, as you toast with a glass of champagne. Don’t forget the fireworks too! All the cruises I’ve listed below are very popular and will sell out. If you are in New York on New Year’s Eve and want to have an experience to remember, I recommend booking one of the cruises below. Please note that the order of cruises will change as they sell out.
