The cruise is probably the best location to celebrate New Year on Sydney Harbour. Almost every year hundreds of visitors enjoy the spectacular NYE fireworks, rope light and Light Parade from the cruise floating on the harbour.
The cruises on Sydney Harbour during NYE 2017 provide special entertainments and facilities to every guest availing the service. These cruises are mostly available on prior reservation. In fact majority of the tickets are sold out months before the celebration. Therefore if you are planning to join the celebration then it will be wise to make a prior reservation. The usual cost of each ticket is between $400 and $750 per head.
If you are planning to celebrate the Sydney NYE on cruise then it is better that you drive near the boat’s pick up zone and park your vehicle nearby as it will be difficult to find a taxi after the midnight celebration. It is better that you reach the cruise ahead of the scheduled time as if you miss the cruise then it is likely that you will have to pay extra amount to the water taxi in order to reach the cruise.
The local governing body has made every possible arrangement to make New Years Eve a memorable event. In fact it has launched numerous cruises to allow maximum accommodation. This is one such night when the state earns maximum revenue from the international tourists. This is probably the reason you will find attractive packages available for cruise reservation. One of the prestigious superyatch for NYE is the Platinum. This vessel is 120 foot long and can accommodate more than 50 visitors at a time.
The Sydney NYE cruise offers magnificent view and entertainment to the guests. The local government restricts the number of guests in each cruise to guarantee safety. Moreover with minimum accommodation each cruise can extend maximum hospitality to the guests during NYE.
The yachts and boats mostly sail around the different local vantage points to give a clear view of the celebration. The best part of the celebration is the firework. The visitors sitting in the cruise can enjoy it right from the boat. They can in fact sail round and below the bridge to enjoy the full view.
The 50 illuminated vessels in the light parade provide a grand view to those sailing on it. The parade begins after the firework at 9 pm. The vessels makes a journey of 15 km across the east and west of the bridge. It crosses the Clarke Island and concludes the journey at Cuckoo Island. This is one of the best spectacle viewed by millions of people across the globe. Thus if you are lucky enough you can book a ticket on one of these vessels. However the same has to be done months before the celebration. After completing the journey each vessel has to return to the designated area. The guests are then entertained with light snacks. Henceforth they wait for the real show that begins at midnight.
You can view the entire firework play right from the cruise. The show continues for 8 minutes. The NYE cruise on Sydney Harbour provides a full view of the fireworks. The number of cruises is restricted and therefore only a few selected ones are allowed during this particular day.
