Empress Nautical Yacht New Years Eve Event Description

This New Year's Eve, celebrate on the water, aboard the only yacht cruise with all the amenities of a stationary New York City affair. The Empress Yacht Cruise is the ultimate luxury NYE event on the Hudson River.

If you are looking for a New Year's Eve party that takes a step away from the bustle of the city, this is your chance to see the beauty of New York City and take to the water. Ring in the new year aboard The Empress, NYC's premier luxury party yacht.

Your river journey embarks at 9:00 from Pier 81.  Take in all of New York City's treasured landmarks, from Lady Liberty to the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge and beyond. While rooftop views of NYC are of course amazing, they remain unmatched by this river-view.  All of those twinkling lights of NYC's landscape dancing on the water will reflect the glitzy event happening aboard the Empress Yacht. This is the only yacht party on New York City's East River with a four-hour premium open bar.  Your five-hour New Year's Eve voyage is an intoxicating mix of drinks and dancing, with music provided by a live DJ performance. Listen to an eclectic mix of Top 40, dance, hip hop, and rock, as you dance the night away on the top and bottom levels. This dance party will literally rock the boat. Special to The Empress Yacht, guests are invited to take advantage of the vessel's permanent dance floor.  At midnight enjoy a live NYE countdown, and a complimentary glass of champagne to toast to the new year.

A mark of affluence, a party on a yacht easily floats above any other NYE event in NYC. The Empress Yacht boasts two expansive floors of party-ready space. Both levels are completely surrounded by windows, ensuring guests will never miss a moment of the scenery languidly passing by. The panoramic view is sure to be the ultimate backdrop to seemingly endless photo opportunities. Your NYE event aboard New York City's most luxurious party yacht will be nothing short of magnificent. Make a seamless transition from the top and bottom floors, both equipped with their own full-service bars. A state of the art sound system throughout the venue means the party and the music is everywhere you are.

On New Year's Eve, The Empress Yacht will transform from mere boat to exclusive cruise and will be the only New York City nightclub floating on the East River. For a truly different party experience, get on board the Empress Yacht this New Year's Eve and see New York City all lit up from a-once-in-a-lifetime riverside view.
