On our cruise the entertainment was great. They had two production shows, the adult comedy night was very funny and the headliner was a Motown group that did some great songs. Of course they have the Seventies show on the promenade the ice show and the New Years Eve party was awesome. We were in the promenade where the majority of the people were but they also had a bash by the pool in front of the giant screen.

One event that I enjoyed was ' Cocktails Under the Stars'. This was for Diamond members and it was very well done, with the drinks flowing freely and some delicious appetizers as well.

It was an excellent cruise but six days was not enough. I could have used a few more.

We don't visit this site very often and was surprised to see this thread from 2013.
As it turned out we had to cancel this New Year 2014 B2B cruise after my annual physical found a problem which I had to have surgery for in mid-Dec 2013. My RCI insurance kicked in so we did not lose any money. After I was released from the Doctor but still recuperating we took a 7 day cruise on the Serenade early Feb 2014. We liked the ship so much, and while still on the ship, we decided to book our B2B New Year 2015 cruise, which was a fun cruise!
Now for New Year 2016 we will be on the Carnival Sunshine for another B2B--barring any unforeseen problems!

I love to do something special for NYE and so far we have been on two NYE cruises. We have also been in Las Vegas, Nevada - San Antonio, Texas and Funchal, Madeira.
In 2016 we will be ringing in the new on the Liberty of the Seas.

PS. I also spent a New Years Eve in Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam.

Mrs. does not drink alcohol but she has enjoyed the New Years Eve festivities on the cruise ships.
The place where I'm going this year will have a lot more drinking than on a ship. It's open bar all evening long until 2 AM. We will be with friends and people only drink what they want to.


Now I need to come up with an idea for 2017.

I've only cruised once on New Years and I will admit, it was a lot of fun, but I don't think I would do it again...You can go the week after for almost half the cost. I don't drink much either, but still enjoyed bring in a new year while cruising...

I very rarely go to New Years Eve parties .I prefer being home than taking the chance of being on the road with possibly drunk drivers.

When you do a new years eve cruise you don't have worry about other drivers.

Makes sense to me. When you find something that you like, stick with it.
