What You Can Expect

Sydney Harbour New Year's Eve Tall Ship Dinner Cruise

Sydney Harbour New Year's Tall Ship Eve Dinner Cruise

In the early hours of New Year’s Eve, make your own way to the dock in Darling Harbour to board your tall ship cruise. You have a choice of sailing on either the Soren Larsen or the Southern Swan, both of which are modeled on the classic square-rigged style ship of the 1850's.

Sip a glass of complimentary wine, beer, bubbly or soda as your ship sets sail on the festively lit harbor. You can soak up the sight of the sparkling city skyline and harbor from comfortable interior cabins or exterior decks as your sturdy ship glides around Sydney Harbour.

Your dinner includes a delicious barbecue spread with a selection of international dishes made with fresh seafood, vegetables and meats. Desserts, tea and coffee, and unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks are served with your meal.

You’ll have the best views in the city when Sydney’s famous fireworks displays light up the skies at 9pm and midnight. A parade of colorful ships will be on the water too, adding to the visual feast.

Your New Year’s Eve dinner cruise ends after 5.5 hours with return to the dock.

I am so mad I chickened out and did not go. I watched it all from my window. I was afraid I would not be able to get back to my hotel.

The harbour point was hard to find, others had just as much difficulty as us. The person of contact wasn't visable, but he started running around so everyone found him. The location of the ship was great, the food was pretty good, the unlimited drinks were good and they didn't make us feel bad since I don't drink. But the 5 hours of Irish folk music really got to me by the end of the nite. It wasn't music to dance by, the 1st hour was alright but after awhile it was annoying. And since every boat was in the harbour we had to wait to dock, unfortunately we were one of the last ones to dock. So sitting in the harbour for an hour, with boat fumes wasn't great. We got back to the dock at 2am. The fireworks were great and considering the view it was very memorable.
