Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Destin on the Water with Fireworks, Dinner & Dancing

Ring in the New Year in true Emerald Coast style and on the water in Destin, Florida. SunQuest Cruises is hosting its annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks, Dinner and Dancing Cruise on the SOLARIS yacht on Wednesday, December 31st from 8 pm – 12:30 am. Patrons will embark on a memorable evening that includes a five-course seated dinner, live entertainment, fireworks, party favors and champagne.

“New Year’s Eve is our ultimate celebration on the water,” stated James Murray, General Manager for SunQuest Cruises. “We combine the best of all worlds from cruising our local waters to indulging in a gourmet meal to enjoying the best seat in the house for fireworks. It’s all about creating fond memories and happiness for our guests.”

Guests will enjoy the elegant fusion of the luxurious yacht, ambiance, romance, staff and entertainment at this one-of-a-kind New Year’s Eve experience. Upon being greeted on-board by Captain Matt, guests are welcomed to start the evening with a cocktail from the full-service bar while taking in the panoramic views of the marina and resort. As everyone explores all three indoor and outdoor decks, the SOLARIS chefs are freshly preparing gourmet meals on-board the yacht’s galley.

While the SOLARIS cruises the local waters, the five-course culinary adventure begins with a Prosciutto-wrapped Goat Cheese Persimmons with Autumn drizzle, followed by a Roast Butternut Squash Soup with Lump Crab and Sherry reduction. Next, guests will enjoy a Wild Green Salad featuring Rocket Arugula, shaved Manchego, Duck Confit and Fig Balsamic dressing. Entrée choices include Herb-Encrusted Filet Mignon, Cornbread & Andouille-stuffed Breast of Chicken, Gulf Gropper-topped Shrimp Scampi and Harvest Vegetables. The meal concludes with Chef’s New Year’s Celebration Dessert.

The soiree on the water continues with live music that can be heard from all three decks. At final countdown, guests will grab party favors and raise a glass to 2015 with a midnight Champagne toast. The sky will illuminate above them as they enjoy the best seat in the house for the fireworks show from the nearby Sandestin resort. Sandestin also offers a variety of accommodations on-property for anyone seeking a worry-free night.

The SOLARIS New Year’s Eve Fireworks and Dinner Cruise is an all-inclusive event for $110 per person, including a 4 ½ hour cruise, five-course meal, live entertainment, fireworks, party favors and champagne.
