Celebrating the Chinese new Year in Style!

12 June, 2019

We recently had the pleasure of hosting an evening function for Singapore Airlines, celebrating Chinese New Year. We had the boat decked out in themed regalia, including red decorations.

The 80 guests who came aboard enjoyed a formal plated three course meal. Later, the Lion Dance Troupe entertained the guests, who were invited to put money into a red envelope and feed it to the lion. In Chinese culture, this is said to bring prosperity for the new year!

Music entertainment was provided after dinner by the Neo Jazz Trio, who got everyone moving. While we were out on the river we got to enjoy the Crown New Years Celebration fireworks over the water which were spectacular! Towards the end of the evening, mandarins were given to all the guests as part of the traditional New Years custom. It was a fantastic evening, enjoyed by all!


  • Thanks heaps for all your help with the year 11 river cruise! The event went very well and all the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks for being EXTREMELY accommodating with all the requests coming through and providing a night of memories for the students. You guys make a great team, and provide exceptional service before and during the event, which makes it even more memorable on our behalf as you made it easy for planning purposes at our end.

  • Hi Patsy,

    Ensure all the Staff and Peter receives my sincere thanks. We have been discussing and think it’s the best Christmas Party we have had in 10 years, and we know how to party!

    Staff were great and gave it a nice relaxing feeling. Everyone had a blast.

  • I held a corporate dinner event on the Crystal Swan in late Oct 2017 and can say the event far exceeded our expectations. From the planning stages, through to set-up and finally service/catering at the event - we were impressed! The staff and crew are wonderful, the food is not your typical "boat" food (so don't be afraid!) and the boat itself is really quite unique and allows fantastic views to the city and surrounds. I would book with Crystal Swan again and recommend them as a venue option no questions asked. Thanks again Patty, Tam, Peter, Skipper & crew!
