july-4th-cruise-new-york

For Americans and international travelers alike, experiencing New Year’s Eve in New York City is both a pilgrimage and right of passage. Thousands of citizens of all ages flock to The City That Never Sleeps to see the ball drop, watch their favorite star perform live and shop until they drop, but why have a typical New York Experience when you can take a New Year’s Eve Fireworks Cruise? You’ll get a unique view of the city’s quintessential sites from a waterfront perspective while having access to an exclusive dance floor and open bar.

Enjoy Live Entertainment from the Hottest Stars

Between the New Year’s Eve Spectacular, Madison Square Garden and the Concert for Peace, you’ll have plenty of choices for live entertainment while you’re in town. The New Year’s Eve Spectacular regularly features national and international acts, but you won’t find Madison Square Garden’s events on your DVR or TiVo. The acts in the Garden change every year, but if you book in advance, you might just be able to get a front-row seat for your favorite entertainer. Every year the Cathedral of St. John holds the Concert for Peace and general admission is free! There are a number of acts that play on the waterfront and in other locations every year, so catch an early show before you head on your cruise.

Have a New York Feast

New York attracts trained and homegrown chefs alike, so if you want to have an amazing meal on New Year’s Eve, get out into the city and find a trendy spot. From formal restaurants to eat-on-the-go street food, you can find a delicious meal for any picky or adventurous palette. Try out a barcade or an out-of-the-way place with a 6-person dining room to add a little spice to your trip.

See It All From the Harbor

On our New Year’s Eve cruise, you’ll get a breathtaking midnight view of the sparklers lighting the city’s landmarks as you enjoy a champagne toast with your fellow revelers.
