Do Something New This New Year’s Eve

Have you gotten bored with your usual New Year's Eve party scene? Maybe you haven't been out for a few years but have managed to snag a babysitter and want to ring in 2019 in style. Whatever your reason for thinking outside the box, consider a private cruise for you and your guests. Spend the night with Argosy Cruises, gazing out over the bright lights of Seattle amongst your nearest and dearest. Argosy Cruises offers luxurious boat tours of Lake Union, Lake Washington, and the Seattle waterfront.

New Year's Eve Cruises

This year, we are offering one-hour and two-hour cruises with departures from Pier 55 on the Seattle Waterfront or Lake Union Park/MOHAI. Your group can choose from various entertainment options as you see the city's magnificent sights. Each cruise includes a champagne toast at midnight and is appointed with a full-service bar featuring snacks, specialty cocktails, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages. The beautiful ship has everything you need to celebrate with your closest friends and family members.

An Atmosphere for Celebration

What better way to welcome a new year than with our region's most beautiful sights in the background. When you choose the 21+ NYE Jazz Cruise from Lake Union, you will be treated to panoramic views of Gas Works Park and the backside of the Seattle skyline.

The 21+ NYE Late Night Cruise leaving from the Seattle waterfront offers a close-up view of the bright lights of the city's skyline and Puget Sound. Whether you want to set the scene for romance or create a festive party atmosphere, you can't lose with the gorgeous city of Seattle as your backdrop.

More Ways to Cruise This Holiday Season

If you love cruising, be sure not to miss our annual Christmas Ship™ Festival; a Seattle tradition since 1949. The Spirit of Seattle sails by more than 65 waterfront communities around the Puget Sound region, decorated with hundreds of white lights. Choirs onboard sing your favorite holiday carols. Photos with Santa, kids' holiday crafts, activities, and a reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” round out this incredible experience. You can arrange for a meal box and enjoy a full bar on board.

Guests can book tickets for either the Lead Boat with the live choir or a Follow Boat that receives a broadcast of the performance. You can also stay ashore for the ultimate Christmas light viewing. The Parade of Boats viewing party takes place on December 14 from 7:30-9:30 pm and features a parade of decorated boats, giveaways and more. Join us at Evanston Plaza in the Fremont Lake Union Center for an unforgettable free event.

Private Holiday Cruises

Those planning a family or company holiday party should consider a private cruise aboard one of our beautiful ships. Contact us to get a quote for a private charter for your group of 20 or more guests, including a cruise on a lighted boat with holiday entertainment. Choose from a variety of menu options and bar packages or use your own caterer for a completely customizable fête that fits your budget.

Remember, Argosy Cruises is your friend with a boat! We look forward to cruising with you on Seattle's gorgeous waterways. Make your event a unique success, whether you're hosting a party or a formal corporate function.
