Make your way to Southgate to board your boat and get started on a festive New Year's Eve celebration. As your boat sets sail on the Yarra River, nibble on appetizers and raise a toast to the end of 2014 with a glass of your favorite beverage.

After seeing Melbourne’s waterfront as it gears up for the new year, head inside to sit down at a table for 10 (meet new friends at a shared table if your party is less than 10 people). Enjoy a sit-down gourmet buffet dinner, choosing from a selection of seafood and cold meat platters, crisp summer salads, delicious miniature cakes and fresh fruit or savor the three courses that you selected for the sit-down 3-course dinner (see sample menus under Itinerary). Have your choice of unlimited premium wines, local and imported beers, a range of spirits, soft drinks and juices to accompany the evening.

Once you have finished your meal, dance the night away as your DJ spins golden oldies, popular tunes and contemporary music. Around midnight, head out to the deck for the countdown to the new year and to take in excellent views of Melbourne’s spectacular fireworks displays. Your captain makes sure that the boat stakes a prime position on the Yarra River for the fireworks.

At the end of your 4.5-hour cruise, your boat returns you to shore with fantastic memories to kick off the new year.
