Paddle Wheel Queen ALL AGES New Years Eve Event Description

Cruise into the New Year with NYC’s all-ages Boat Party on the Paddle Wheel Queen, offering unparalleled views of the iconic NYE fireworks and the New York City skyline. This New Year’s Eve, we’re turning this vintage-style ship into a floating party for the parents and an entertainment spectacular for the kids, and you’ll sample the best party amenities as you take in all the wonders and sights of the Hudson River. All aboard, sailors – this is the most amenity-packed New Year’s Eve party this side of the Hudson.

 

There isn’t a chance the kids will get bored on the Paddle Wheel Queen– this is the ultimate NYE river cruise.  As the ship first sets sail, your whole crew will enjoy complimentary early evening bites, getting you in the mood for this lively family affair. A four-hour premium open bar (21+) will keep the parents sipping happily throughout the night while party favors keep the kids laughing. A live DJ plays crowd-favorite music for all-ages all leading up to the live midnight countdown. As the big moment hits, guests will sample unparalleled views of the awe-inspiring NYE fireworks lighting up the sky, brightening the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn Bridge – a sight that has to be seen to be believed.   Looking to indulge this NYE? Take out a VIP package that offers perks such as reserved seating to give your cohort a home base for the night.  Take in all the iconic sights of the Hudson: the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge, and the Freedom Tower, all lit up in NYE glory. When you’re not dancing, you’ll be pointing out one sight after the next to the family this New Year’s Eve.

 

The Paddle Wheel Queen is a New York institution, cruising the best views of the Hudson to shake up your New Year’s Eve. This ship is a tribute to the sophistication of vintage-style steamships, complete with wrought-iron detailing reminiscent of the steamboats on the Mississippi Delta. The Paddle Wheel Queen is well-equipped with a bar and dance floor, offering everything you need for the perfect NYE party.  The views from this ship are always changing throughout the night, so you can take in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, New Jersey, and Queens and keep up the excitement for the kids with the ever-changing skyline.
