New Years Cruises: Celebrate At Sea

New Years' Eve is a celebration, a welcoming of the new year and farewelling of the old. What better place to party than a cruise ship? The crowd is provided, the food is free, and the whole ship is in holiday mode. Perfect!


What To Expect on New Year Cruises

A New Years cruise is perfect timing for many reasons.

  • It is right in the thick of the summer school holidays for those in the southern hemisphere and a warming winter getaway for those in the north.

  • It is an easy and relaxing way to celebrate the holiday, as the party is put on and all passengers need to do is show up, mingle and enjoy.

  • No taxis or sober drivers are required. Sleeping late the next day is not a problem- and a beach to lie on is a likely prospect.

  • Families will enjoy the babysitting which is offered onboard most cruise lines, and the Kids Club to keep the little ones entertained.

  • Most lines will put on a New Years' Eve party. These vary wildly from line to line but often include such things as complimentary champagne, venues open late, dance parties, special dinners, live music and events for children and teens. All celebrations include the inevitable countdown!
