New Year’s Eve Cruises in New York

New Years Eve Dinner Cruise 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 to use 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 of the cruises I’ve listed below are very popular and they will sell out. If you are in New York on New Year’s Eve and want to have an experience to remember, then I recommend booking one of the cruises below.

Take a look here for more ideas of what else you can do on New Year’s Eve in New York. I also have tips what to the day after on New Year’s Day.

Please note that the order of cruises will change as they sell out.
