Admit it — each new birthday gets a little harder to celebrate. The idea of being another year older can put a damper on even your best party plans. And after a while, you might feel like all the great birthday party ideas have simply been played out, making it even a little less fun.

That’s why you need to take a new approach for your next birthday bash, whether it’s a big one or not. There’s no reason you should miss out on celebrating this or any significant moment in your life, or the life of someone who matters a great deal to you. It still can be a blast; you just might need a little help to get there — from us, Brisbane’s party specialists.

At Brisbane Party Cruises, parties are all we do. We’ve hosted hundreds of them over the past ten years on our dedicated, luxury entertainment vessel, The Island Princess, and we personalise each one to your taste or help you bring your own unique vision to life. After all, it’s your party.

Whether you’re throwing a milestone event or a kids party, we feel you won’t have a better time anywhere than on The Island Princess. Why? This is what our vessel was made for, and it’s what we specialise in. Ready for the details? Here are just a few things you can expect while onboard.

There really is no shortage of theme ideas — but don’t worry, if you can’t think of one, we’ll help!

Think of The Island Princess as a stage — on it, you can make anything happen. Don’t get us wrong, you don’t have to have a themed party to have a great time — it’s not for everyone — but if it’s “your thing,” having it onboard our flagship, luxury vessel can add a level of excitement that you won’t find at any other venue.

Of course, the sea air has a bit to do with it, but the special touches Brisbane Party Cruises adds — and the worry-free experience you’ll have while onboard — allow you to be in the moment unlike anywhere else, and that’s what truly makes a party great. We know; we’ve thrown a lot of parties. T

o get you started, here are a few of our favourite themed-party ideas, but don’t let your imagination stop there. What you can imagine you can have on a Brisbane Party Cruise.

  • Zombie Apocalypse — this is exactly what you think it is — not for the squeamish!
  • Titanic — nominate whether your guests are first class or steerage, and tell them to dress accordingly! (Don’t worry, you’ll all be totally safe.)
  • White Party — everyone wears white for a very elegant affair with an old-school flair.
  • Op-Shop Spectacular! — everyone has to wear the most hideous outfit they can find in their local op-shop! Think ugly-beautiful.
  • Pirate Party — ARGHH!
  • When I grow up, I wanna be … — Dress according to what you wanted to be when you were 7. This is a really fun way to get to know new friends and old, alike.
  • Surprise Party … — we won’t tell if you won’t.

Did someone say karaoke?

Let’s get down to party basics. Sometimes you just need to let loose. Music makes that happen, especially when you can be a part of the music. Brisbane Party Cruises helps you do that in two ways with our versatile and state-of-the-art sound system and our unique approach to party music.

First, there’s our CrowdDJ system which lets your party guests choose the music they want to hear right from their smartphones. After they download the CrowdDJ app, they can choose their favourite tracks from our extensive music library for the vibe they want.

Want even more? Karaoke lets your guests participate in the music, turning your party into an event that’s interactive and exciting and making for fun moments you’ll talk about for years to come. There may be few easier ways to take your party to the next level.

Wait, what about food?

Great food adds to every celebration. That’s why, in addition to great music, Brisbane Party Cruises has chosen local celebrity-chef Peter Willes to serve up your party on a plate.

Peter Willes and Gourmet Workshop have nearly 30 years of experience preparing healthy, organic fare with locally-sourced ingredients to guarantee freshness and flavour. Vegans and vegetarians will have ample options, too.

Peter Willes’ savoury classics like creamy chicken tartlets, mini quiches and hearty beef pies offer flavour without heaviness so they won’t interfere with your experience, only add to it.

And don’t forget, we also offer unique cocktails and top-shelf wine, beer and spirit selections to complete your culinary experience — and plenty of food and drink options if your party includes little ones.

Then there’s Brisbane, itself

Even if you’re having a big bash for your birthday, the occasion invites you to take a moment, step back and reflect on the preceding year. A Brisbane Party Cruise can help you do just that. One of the best parts of a cruise on The Island Princess is obvious — sailing down the Brisbane River, with the spectacular city skyline behind you that’s beautiful day or night. It provides the perfect setting to get some perspective on your life and maybe even consider the future — if your friends let you have a moment away from the fun.

The reasons to celebrate with us continue!

There are some practical things to consider, too. For example, do you want:

  • Unexpected gate-crashers?
  • To wake up to a house that looks like a bomb went off inside?
  • To do all the work of planning and decorating your venue yourself?

We think not, and we’d like to help you make your party your own and be the best possible. This is what we do.
