Celebrate New Year's Eve on the High Seas of NY Harbor

November 9, 2006 - by City Guide

Tired of Dick Clark being your ONLY date on New Year’s Eve? Does planning a New Year’s night out seem like more trouble than it’s worth? Circle Line Downtown can save you from the ghost of uneventful New Year’s past aboard one of their three New Year’s Eve cruises. Magical and unforgettable, cruises aboard ZEPHYR, Miss Circle Line and Miss New York are fitting last hurrahs to mark the end of 2006.

Toasting the New Year aboard ZEPHYR, Miss Circle Line or Miss New York are fun, safe, and economical ways to usher in 2007. Sailing from 3 destinations, each cruise boasts an open bar (beer, wine, liquor, and soda), hors d’oeuvres, party favors, DJ entertainment, and breathtaking views of the dramatic fireworks display above Lady Liberty.   

Belt out “Auld Lange Syne” in the lap of luxury aboard ZEPHYR, Circle Line Downtown’s 143–ft luxury yacht. Departing from historic South Street Seaport, the 4-hour cruise also features a live-television broadcast of Times Square’s world-famous New Year’s revelry, and a champagne toast at midnight. New Year’s Eve aboard ZEPHYR promises an evening of elegance on the New York Harbor.

Who wouldn’t want to get a midnight kiss aboard one of Circle Line Downtown’s most famous legacy boats?  Miss Circle Line departs from Battery Park and Miss New York from Jersey City -- both fun and festive ways to ring in the New Year.  These 4 hour parties are the perfect places to dance away the excess holiday turkey and trimmings.  

ZEPHYR ($175 per person) departs South Street Seaport’s Pier 16 and boards at 9:30 pm, sails at 10 pm, and returns at 2 a.m.  Miss Circle Line ($125 per person) departs from Battery Park, Slip 3, and boards at 9:30 p.m., sails at 10 p.m., and returns at 2 a.m. Miss New York ($125 per person) departs from Paulus Hook Ferry Terminal, Jersey City and boards at 9:30 p.m., sails at 10 p.m., and returns at 2 a.m.

All Circle Line Downtown New Year’s Eve cruises take place on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2006 and are for guests 21 & over with a valid ID. To purchase tickets, call 866-9CLINE1 or visit Circle Line Downtown Ticket Booth, South Street Seaport, Pier 16. For more information, visit
