Why spend New Year’s Eve in a crowded club or bar when you could coast into 2014 on a marvelous yacht?

Hornblower Cruises offers five different party ships for you and your friends to ring in the New Year; two will depart from San Francisco and three will depart from Berkeley. Each boat offers a unique experience, whether you’re looking for a cocktail cruise with hors d’oeuvres or a premium open bar and seated dinner. No matter which cruise you choose, you’re in for a serious treat with gourmet cuisine prepared fresh on board, an open bar, party favors, a dazzling view of the city lights, and a front row seat to the night's spectacular fireworks display.

For the ultimate party atmosphere, you’ll want to book a spot on the iconic San Francisco Belle. A fabulous yacht featuring three dance floors and an enormous open sky deck, the Belle is the perfect place to get up close and personal with the New Year's Eve firework show. Plus, there’s nowhere more romantic if you’re leaning in for a midnight kiss. 

If you prefer to ogle the SF skyline and toast the new year in daylight, you can hop aboard a New Year's Day Champagne Brunch Cruise. Feast on a delectable brunch buffet, sip on bottomless mimosas and free-flowing Champagne, and enjoy live entertainment while cruising around the Bay on the first day of the new year. 

So, kiss goodbye to 2013 and celebrate new beginnings with 2014 all while coasting on open water, the wind in your hair, with one of the most beautiful cities in the world just a stone's throw away. Tempted? Sounds pretty dreamy to us.
