NYE Showboat Cruise Reviews

  • The whole experience was excellent and we really enjoyed it, however the only thing we felt was lacking was a build up to the fireworks. It would have been really good to have someone on deck to inform the passengers of the impending fireworks to build a little bit more of an atmosphere. We felt that the fireworks just happened and noted that many people missed the beginning as had not realised the time. Other than that a great experience. Thank you!

  • We chose the cruise as it had been recommended. Except for the rain at the beginning of the evening we had a wonderful time. It was a fabulous experience and we also met international visitors. We would recommend this cruise to others. Thank you.

  • Really nice and friendly, attentive table service.

  • Was a bucket list goal to enjoy New Years Eve fireworks on Sydney Harbour since watching Sydney fireworks on tv overseas as 2000 year ended and 2001 arrived. We migrated to Australia August 2001 from Canada. Dream come true. Thank you for an awesome experience. Karen and Terry Major

  • Best experience we ever had at SYD NYE!

Sydney Harbour New Year’s Eve Experience

Hop aboard Sydney Showboats for the most exciting New Year’s Eve 2019 fireworks cruise on Sydney Harbour. The fireworks display over the Sydney Harbour Bridge is the most awaited, the most watched, the most televised and the most reported New Year’s Eve event in the world. Our authentic paddlewheeler hosts one of the best Sydney Harbour NYE party cruises and offers great views of the fireworks display.

The Sydney Showboat New Year’s Eve Cruise promises a night full of spectacular sights, great food and entertainment that surpasses all expectations! This all-inclusive Sydney Showboat New Year's Eve package includes seven hours of cruise time, a five-course, restaurant-quality seated and served dinner and a premium selection of beverages for the duration of the cruise.

This luxury paddlewheeler is fully air-conditioned and built to the highest nautical standard with a stylish interior of backlit marble, warm lighting, rich textured fabric and dramatic lines. The Sydney Showboats have large wrap-around balconies and expansive outer decks that give you an unobstructed views of Sydney’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display – the most watched and the most televised New Year’s Eve event in the world. It kicks off with the 9pm family fireworks, and be there again when the clock strikes midnight, to see the night sky as it bursts into a colourful canvas with spectacular fireworks.

What’s more, the Sydney Showboat New Year’s Eve cruise is one-of-a-kind as it offers continuous entertainment that includes the spectacular show ‘Voyage of Love’.

The Sydney Showboat is a participant in the Harbour of Light Parade that has an illuminated fleet of over 40 vessels trimmed with orange-coloured rope light to create a visually stunning parade that cascades down the Sydney Harbour. This is a unique spectacle for both Sydney-siders as well as guests onboard the cruise boats.
