Your VIP experience begins at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan, where you’ll board the 160-foot (48.8-meter) Atlantica, one of New York City’s most elegant private yachts. From there, cruise out to the Hudson River for an evening of cocktails, dinner, dancing and fireworks. It's a great way to ring in the new year in the Big Apple, and avoid the Times Square crowds!

Start the night off with hors d’oeuvres and premium cocktails from the open bar. Since this cruise is limited to 200 people, you can expect short wait lines and premium service as you order your beverages. Pluck tasty appetizers from passing trays, and chat with friends and family in the warmth of the cabin. A DJ spins a mix of festive songs during the 4-hour cruise, so feel free to hit the dance floor whenever the mood strikes.

For stellar views, head to the open-air deck to admire the city skyline as you cruise around the tip of Manhattan, up the East River, and under the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge. Pass famous landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, the World Financial Center and the shimmering art deco spires of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. Look north to catch a glimpse of the sleek United Nations building.

Go back in and sit down for more views of the twinkling city over a fine dining 3-course dinner. Located in a spacious dining room, expect private seating, elegant decor and exceptional service. See the Itinerary below for a menu that includes seasonal, fresh ingredients. After you finish dessert, cut loose on two dance floors with DJ entertainment! Expect everything from classic party songs to Top 40 hits to get you moving, and ballads to pull your date in for a slow dance.

As the clock strikes midnight, admire unbeatable views of the fireworks shimmering above the Statue of Liberty from the boat’s deck, a picture-perfect end to your unforgettable New Year’s Eve experience.

    Wonderful tour everything was perfect from the start to the return to Pier 61. Easy to find, perfect organization! Only 200 persons the perfect number to have a perfect cruise without waiting for anything. The fireworks over the Brooklyn bridge and Mannathan at midnight were just great. The price worth the moment!

    Very nice experience on the Atlantica cruise ship! The highlight was definitely experiencing the midnight fireworks on the top deck, on one end with Manhattan Skyline and on the other alongside Lady Liberty! All this while sipping some bubbly wine! Before that, during dinner, the ship cruised down on the Hudson River then back up the East River past the Brooklyn Bridge for great views of Manhattan. Dinner and welcome snacks were fine, we were there more for the view and midnight feel!

    This is the perfect way to celebrate the New Year while in New York. A luxury boat, gourmet dinner, impeccable service and an unique view of New Year Fireworks by the Statue of Liberty! Can't get any better than this! The boat offers a classy atmosphere, and features huge windows that allowed us to view NYC Skyline as we dined. The food was good and plentiful, while the open bar kept us fully served, from bubbly toast to wine and cocktails. The onsite DJ had us danced a long while after the midnight celebrations, I think I was the last one to leave the dance floor! The best part of all this was of course the time we spent anchored close to the Statue of Liberty. We had a prime location for watching the fireworks, which lasted several minutes - the highlight of the evening and a memorable moment! Definitely how New Year's Eve should be!

    The New Year's Dinner Cruise was wonderful! The food was not terrible and was not fabulous but what do you expect when feeding 200 people!? The wait staff did a great job with service. The views and fireworks were breathtaking! I would highly recommend this tour.

    This was absolutely fantastic! This was the best new year I have ever had. I was in New York for new year from Scotland with my girlfirend and I would definitely recommend this to anybody without hesitation. The food was great, unlimited alcohol all night, great waiters and unrivalled views of the magnificent Manhattan skyline. To finish the night off, we took in a great fireworks display in front of the statue of liberty. Can't think of many better ways to spend new year eve!

    I enjoyed this cruise however not everything advertised for it happened -no band and no dockside party once we got back to the dock. The food was excellent however the time between each course was excessive - it didn't give much time for dancing to the DJ afterwards.

    For the price I expected more. The wine selection was very limited. The service was good and they went the extra mile to provide me a taste of both entries. But the delivery of the food took too long. There was very little time to enjoy the dance floor or meet other passengers. The fireworks were nice, but I could have seen them from a much cheaper cruise. Overall it was not worth the money and would not recommend it to others.
