    10 Awesome Cruises to Ring In the New Year


    Decked out and dancing under a clear sky or in an elaborately decorated lounge, water views galore, champagne flowing, a live band playing, balloon drops and maybe even fireworks. If that sounds like your kind of New Year's Eve celebration head to a cruise ship.

    There is still some space available on these cruises, near and far. Where will you ring in the New Year?

    Australia/New Zealand

    Guests onboard Seabourn Odyssey will be sipping complimentary champagne after cruising all day in New Zealand's breathtaking Milford Sound and Fjordlands National Park, then spend New Year's Day among the bird life of sparsely populated Oban, N.Z.

    Bahamas

    Mickey and friends will entertain cruisers during a deck party on the Disney Magic. Bonus: You spend the first day of the New Year docked at Disney's Castaway Cay.

    Caribbean

    Passengers on the Azamara Quest will be ringing in the New Year in high style in the harbor of chic St. Barth's, with views of the island's fireworks display.

    South America

    Book the New Year's cruise on Silversea’s Silver Cloud and say hello to 2014 while sailing in the Chilean Fjords.

    Asia

    Passengers on the SeaDream II will spend New Year's Eve in Phuket, Thailand, where Paris Hilton will be hosting a star-studded beach party. Bonus: Fireworks and traditional lighted lanterns.

    Europe

    Passengers on the AmaWaterways river ship AmaPrima will spend New Year's Eve docked in lively Amsterdam.

    Tahiti

    As if visiting paradise is not enough, those celebrating New Year's on the Ocean Princess can also screen college football games on New Year's Day (complete with a junk-food buffet).

    Myanmar

    Talk about an exotic way to start the New Year: passengers on the river ship Road to Madalay will celebrate New Year's with a chef's feast and live band, after first touring the U Bein Bridge in Mandalay and King Bodawpaya's pagoda at Amarapura.

    Mexico

    Revelers on the Carnival Miracle can get an early start on New Year's Eve with a day in the fun-in-the-sun destination of Cabo San Lucas, enjoy a party at sea (complete with free champagne, party hats and noisemakers), and return to Cabo for New Year's Day.

    Hawaii

    Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America will spend New Year's Eve off the Big Island, meaning passengers may spot eruptions of Kilauea volcano — talk about starting the year off with a bang!
