My partner and I decided to splurge on the Bella Vista cruise for New Year's Eve and it was worth every penny. The vessel itself is a masterpiece of design, offering panoramic views of the harbour and fireworks. The staff were incredibly attentive, ensuring our glasses were never empty and that we always had something scrumptious to nibble on. The standing buffet and dessert station were both hits, offering a great variety of tasty options. Dancing the night away under the stars with Sydney's skyline as the backdrop was absolutely surreal. A top-notch way to welcome the new year!
