While there’s a novelty to spending New Year’s Eve on a boat, there are some serious advantages, too: Your date can’t walk out on you (though she might swim for it if you’re a real cad) and as long as you plan for transportation at the night’s end, there’s no chance of a DUI
. It’s also a truly spectacular voyage, with the starry, urban mountains above and the placid silvered waters below. BB Riverboats' New Year’s Eve cruise includes a three-entree buffet (Roast Sirloin, Seafood Pasta, Chicken Breast stuffed with Boursin and more), dessert (Chocolate Fondue and cake), entertainment, champagne at midnight, a late night snack buffet and party favors. Does it get more romantic than that? $80 per person. 9 p.m.
