Celebrate With a Sydney Harbor Birthday Party Cruise

Put on your party outfit! We’re celebrating with a birthday party cruise. Sydney Harbor is the perfect place for a unique and unforgettable setting for many types of celebrations. Wedding and birthday party cruises are the most popular celebration with chartered cruise services.

Parties can be planned according to a traditional path, or can be changed up with a themed birthday party cruise. Sydney charter cruises can produce any type of theme from a tropical cruise with the a crewed dressed in costume or a simple, yet elegant dinner with music and dance.

Everyone has a person who is very special to them that is about to reach a milestone in life. Can’t you just picture it now? A gathering of family and friends together in an intimate beautiful setting that promotes conversation along with great food, impeccable service and skyline views beyond the expectations of everyone, even yourself.

Affordable Cruises

Sydney’s charter services often include a planner with plenty of experience planning not only birthday party cruises, but also corporate events, weddings, and sightseeing cruises. You don’t have to hire another planner as the charter cruise professionals will put the entire event together for you. You just have to set the direction for menu, beverages and entertainment.

Invitations

Since we’re on the topic of planning, here’s an idea for invitations that was offered by a planner for a birthday party cruise service in Sydney. Instead of inviting people using traditional paper invitations, talk with a nearby printer about creating customized “boarding passes”. Be sure to tell your guests to bring their boarding pass to the party or they may have to be the first in line to toast the birthday gal or guy! Or have them designed as a split ticket so that you can enter the guest in a cruise party drawing.

Itinerary

Expanding on the idea of a birthday party cruise theme, create a cruise itinerary to mail along with the boarding passes. This will include important information such as where guests can park and how to get to the boarding area. Refer to the host as the cruise director and be sure to include the “embarkation” date and time on the itinerary. Let the guests know how they should dress which depends on the theme of the birthday party cruise. If this is a casual party, tell the guests that casual dress is appropriate, but if this is a formal event, instruct them to wear formal attire.

Traditions – Celebrate The Melbourne Cup Aboard a Sydney Harbour Cruise

Celebrate this year’s running of the historic Melbourne Cup in an equally historic fashion during a Sydney Harbour Cruise aboard a 75 foot luxury motor cruiser. Enjoy the carnival that stops a nation from beautiful Sydney Harbour.

The Melbourne Cup had its first Thoroughbred race in 1861 and was first made a public holiday in Melbourne in 1877. Ever since then the Melbourne Cup Race, running on the first Tuesday of November, has become a legendary event. The entire nation practically comes to a standstill while everyone watches the annual running as it is broadcast live for television, radio and Internet audiences everywhere. Race fans in Sydney that can’t attend the Cup in person celebrate its running in other ways, like closing up the shop or office and taking a Sydney Harbour Cruise for the afternoon. This is guaranteed to be a winning event for everyone in your party.

A Sydney Harbour Cruise on Race Day has become a tradition in its own right. Sydney race fans don their finest suits, dresses, hats and yellow roses and board a luxury motor yacht like the MV Sea Escape, chartered by Sydney Harbour Corporate Cruises, for an afternoon cruise around the harbour. The cruise is a gala event with live coverage of the Melbourne Cup televised on a huge 55 inch screen and online TAB access for those guests wishing to place wagers. The constant live coverage of the lead-in events of the Cup’s Carnival keeps everyone aboard informed of the action at the racetrack in Melbourne. Guests enjoy a professional and freshly prepared luncheon buffet served from the vessel’s full galley featuring fresh fruits, canapes, meat pies and other race fare to keep every fan’s energy level high. A cash bar is also available for those guests wanting their favorite beverage or perhaps a glass of champagne to toast their favoured entry.

Racing fans on the Sydney Harbour Cruise can stay engaged in the build up to the running of the Melbourne Cup inside the yacht’s air conditioned deck areas. Revelers can also enjoy the scenic view of Sydney from the waterfront on any of the vessel’s four decks. The harbour itself comes alive on Melbourne Cup Day as other charters and race fans watch the horse race of a nation. Celebrating the Melbourne Cup on a Sydney Harbour Cruise can only be topped by one event-the next year’s Cup!
