  • Due to heightened security and to provide a safer environment for our guests, we have implemented a policy this year that limits the size and the type of bags that may be brought on board for the New Year's Eve sailings. When you arrive at the pier, all bags will be searched prior to boarding, so we strongly encourage you not to bring any. However, should you need to bring a bag, below is outlined what will be allowed:

  • Small camera cases

An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: strollers (due to lack of storage space), purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, computer bags and any bag larger than the permissible size.
