When you are getting ready for your big night out on the Skyline Princess, you can’t help but go through the mental checklist of all the things you need to get done and prepare before your extravagant dinner cruise. No matter what the occasion is, we want you to be the most prepared for your celebration. We have come up with a few ideas and rituals you may find useful.
Look your best
Most people like to look their best when they have an event to attend. Many women before a big night out will schedule a hair appointment for either an updo or just a simple blowout. Lots also make sure they get a fresh manicure and pedicure in the days leading up to such an event. Some may even decide to have their makeup done at the salon by a makeup artist.
The perfect outfit selection is a must. Will it be chilly and should you wear pants or bring a cardigan? Do you want to wear something feminine and flirty like a sundress? More formal like a cocktail dress or gown? What about the men? Depending on the season, perhaps khakis and a linen shirt, or maybe a suit, or rather simply dress pants and a sports coat. Looking your best goes beyond just what threads you put on. The excitement for your cruise around NYC will show on your face, and you will not only look good, you will feel good before you head to the marina.
Daydream about the sights you will see
Departing from the historic World’s Fair Marina in Flushing, Queens, you’ll cruise the New York Harbor, You can enjoy the view of Citi Field, home of the New York Mets Major League Baseball team and the famous World’s Fair grounds as you sail away from the port. The cruise goes under the Brooklyn Bridge, passing by the Statue of Liberty, with the New York City skyline making for the perfect backdrop for your evening out. You will enjoy the beauty, the history, and the breathtaking views. It is always interesting to take in the architecture of the iconic skyscrapers; Freedom Tower, Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building. On the New Jersey side, there is also a skyline to marvel at. It’s one of the greatest, most unique ways to sightsee and whether you are looking from the top deck or the main level there’s no such thing as a bad seat.
