Avalon Yacht New Years Eve Event Description

Experience New Year’s Eve like you never have before, New York – join us for a yacht party on the East River.  The Avalon Yacht is hosting a bash on the water that you’ll never forget.  If you thought a New York City New Year’s was exciting on land, it’s on another level here.

This bi-level yacht is pulling out all the stops this New Year’s Eve. Enjoy a four-hour premium open bar as you dance the night away to a live DJ performance with the year’s best Top 40, house, and hip-hop hits. As midnight approaches, pick up a glass of complimentary champagne and toast to new beginnings.  Experience a vibrant DJ-led countdown to midnight for the loudest “Happy New Year” chant you’ve ever heard – sound does travel better over water, after all.

Avalon is an exclusive floating nightclub is built for entertainment.  Sporting a dance floor and a stocked bar to dip into, there isn’t much more you can ask for in a New Year’s Eve destination.  Avalon is small, but mighty and her covered second level provides views of a sparkling Hudson and New York City skyline on the most important night of the year.  Complete with a flat screen to watch the Times Square Ball Drop, there’s nothing you’ll be missing at sea this New Year’s Eve.

Watch New York City light up from the deck of this bumping cruise on New Year’s Eve.  Hop on board for a night to remember on Marco Polo Cruises’ Avalon Yacht.
