A sincere thanks to you and the entire crew of Skyline Cruises. You really made my husband Nygil’s 50th Birthday a memorable one.
All of my guests were very impressed and had a wonderful time aboard the yacht. Brunch was fantastic as well as the hospitality of the crew. Carol, you are a very wonderful person to work with. You made everything seem so easy that at one point, I wondered if my party was going to come off, but with your assurance, I trusted you and it worked out perfectly! I am looking forward to doing this again. Many thanks and God Blessings.
Thank you and your staff for accommodating us. You were all very helpful and informative. It was our first event on a ship, and we appreciate your patience and are very grateful that you took us step by step through the entire process. I also want to thank the Maitre D’ William and Captain Dan for being so helpful and nice on the day of the event. We look forward to working with you all again next year!

Words can’t express my appreciation for the wonderful job you & your staff did. From start to finish you were a pleasure to deal with. You made my daughters Bridal Shower something she will always treasure. Thank you Carol, I’m still getting phone calls 3 days later from my guests, complimenting the food, the service and not the mention the wonderful cruise experience! Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.
Dear Staff of the Skyline Princess,
We definitely made the right decision when we chose the Skyline Princess for our parents’ 50th anniversary party. Renewing their vows on the third level, with the sunset in the background, was breathtaking. The friendly, courteous and efficient staff, the abundant gourmet cuisine, the exquisite table settings and the ambiance of the city made their party truly exceptional! Thank you for all your help, suggestions and extras. You were so accommodating to our special needs and requests. Family and friends are still talking about the spectacular extravaganza.
The Bracco Family
We just can’t thank you enough for the personal, yet professional, attention you paid to all the details of our wedding reception and to our guests. The Skyline Princess was a wonderfully, unique way to celebrate!

It was a pleasure working with you on this event. Everything far exceeded my expectations and people are still talking about the party to this day. I want to thank you and applaud you all!
Warm wishes for a Happy Holiday,

On behalf of New York City Parks & Recreation and the Administrator’s staff of Flushing Meadows Corona Park, I want to thank you tremendously for the gracious reception you provided us all last night. I got so many wonderful words from all that sailed with us and I told them the thanks should go to your and your staff. Everything from the food to the rain was greatly appreciated. I’m sure we will do many future events together. Once again, many thanks.
Assistant Commissioner, Queens
Thanks again for an outstanding day.
The cruise was terrific and was just the right touch in helping us thank the 1010 WINS sales department. Your staff was very hospitable and accommodating and the food and DJ were excellent. Once again, thanks from all of us for a most enjoyable afternoon. I’m sure you’ll be seeing us again.
All the best,
Vice President & General Manager, 1010 WINS
The Skyline Princess is a terrific venue to entertain clients. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service. We’ll be sailing again on The Skyline Princess.
Cherry Valley Elementary school and I would like to thank you and all of your staff for an absolutely memorable day. All of the 5th graders and their parents had a wonderful time.
Everything from the food to the service we all received was top notch. The parents could not believe how beautiful the yacht was. They all enjoyed being able to relax and not have to worry about their children getting lost.
For many children, it was the first time they have ever seen many of the historical NYC sites. A week later, parents and children are still coming up to me and thanking me for the day. Some parents have asked me for your phone number so that they can book their school reunions with you.
Again, thank you all for a spectacular day to remember!
Thanks to you and your staff for the excellent service on Friday, October 6. We all had a great time on the boat. Hopefully we can make it a yearly event.
I want to thank you and the whole staff of the Skyline Princess for making Holly and Brendan’s wedding (10/21/07) the most beautiful and memorable event that we could ever have hoped for! The service and attention to detail was exceptional and exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff was ever so polite, helpful, competent, knowledgeable and friendly. Thank them all for us. And thank you for your careful attention to all the details of the wedding planning. It was the perfect day!
Janet Buchanan ( mother of the bride )
Dear Pete Serro, Jeffery Haas, Samuel Fusco, Chef Rob and the entire crew of the Skyline Princess,
The members of the USCG Auxiliary from both the 5th Northern and 1st Southern Districts would like to thank you for the wonderful Veterans Day Brunch. Your staff was attentive to everyone’s needs and the food was fabulous as always. Your attention to detail and the extra effort put forth by your staff made this a memorable day for all.
Captain Jeffery Haas’s knowledge and narration of the history of the New York waterways was an extra special treat that was welcomed and unexpected.
Thank you does not fully express that gratitude that we would like to express to you. Skyline Cruise is a first class operation that deserves all the accolades it can garner.
Susan Fitzgerald VFC 2 6
On behalf of our entire family I would like to thank you for everything you did to help make our son, David and his new bride, Yasemin’s wedding day so perfect. Because of your efforts we had a perfect afternoon! How you managed to order such wonderful weather is beyond me – but you added that in too. We will certainly recommend you and your company to anyone who asks for a “different” place for a wedding or other party. It was over way to soon but everyone left happy.
Again, thank you for all that you did. I hope you enjoyed yourself on the 11th as much as we did.
Thanks for everything! You are wonderful. I really appreciate everything you do for our school. I want to wish you a fantastic summer. Thanks again!!
I had my daughter’s 1st birthday on the Skyline Princess and it was the most amazing party. Everyone had an awesome time. Thanks to all the people that made it happen and Buck thanks again. All my friends and family are still talking about the party.
I can sum up my classmates reaction to the cruise last Saturday night in one word – Fantastic!
Every person aboard said it was the highlight of a great weekend full of memorable events. Cruising around our old college grounds and then going down the East River and right up to the Statue of Liberty – took our breath away. The skipper, the crew, wait staff, bartenders, etc. were awesome! They couldn’t do enough for us. All together they made it a night to remember. You can rest assured that we will pass the word to our follow classes that Skyline Cruises is the way to go.
A special thanks from myself and my two other reunion planners,
Dear Captain Arnold,
We’d both like to thank you for the beautiful wedding ceremony you performed for us aboard the Skyline Princess. The wedding experience was everything you promised us it would be. Many of our guests have said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, they were also very impressed by your magic tricks after dinner, which was also excellent.
We’d like to thank you for taking care of all the arrangements and ensuring the evening ran smoothly. When we first spoke on the phone you said all we had to do was turn up with our marriage license, you’d organise everything else, and you were true to your word.
Thanks once again,
Stephen and Fiona G.
We had a great time and once again Elvin and the staff did an outstanding job. The waiters were amazing! They were attentive and went above and beyond. They let us borrow their cup cake display stand (huge life saver) and offered to take pics.
The food was just as good as I remembered it to be.
Simone and Buck,
Thanks so much for everything. You guys outdid yourselves. The level of service was impeccable and I greatly appreciate it. Everyone is saying that its the best party they’ve ever attended.
Gail from Duane Reade/Walgreens
I wanted to say thank you for all of your help, our party was a big success. The entire department enjoyed being on your boat. Your staff was very friendly and helpful. Thank you again.
Thank you so much for everything. Everyone enjoyed the party and was amazed at how wonderful everything turned out. Thanks again Buck for all your assistance.
Karina S. from Steve Madden
You’re welcome – we had a FABULOUS DAY…the staff, Elvin, Lisa and wait staff were extremely attentive, pleasant and huge assistance with getting my father up/down to 3rd deck. Everyone commented what a great idea for a party (on a boat), so maybe you’ll get more folks heading your way. Thank you again for your patience, expertise, and assistance.
Lorana & Laura
Good Morning Buck,
We very much enjoyed our evening aboard the Skyline Princess. Weather was just great!
The food was delicious, service impeccable, comfort and enjoyment was excellent. Will definitely board again for future corporate events.
Again, thank you, and a big thank you to the staff on board the Skyline Princess, a truly memorable event.
BASF Beauty Creations
I was very very pleased with our cruise. It was a surprise 50th birthday party for my husband. The food was very good, and the service was amazing. The staff was very attentive to all tables, and they were very courteous and professional! We were boarded on time and the 4 hours of cruise was plenty of time. There was plenty of dancing and fun on the upper deck, for whomever was on the ship. And I must admit, I was slightly concerned how that would work out for us, considering we were eating on the second deck, but it was perfect, we ate, then went upstairs to dance. I would highly recommend this cruise company to anyone! Every one of my guests called me the next day to express their feelings and not one of them had a bad thing to say, and there were 45 of us! GREAT JOB SKYLINE CRUISE!!!
We had my son’s Bar Mitzvah on the Skyline Princess – leaving from Flushing, NY and we couldn’t be happier! The staff from the planning stages until the last guest left were friendly and professional. They helped out above and beyond – and gave us great suggestions based on their experience… The food was great – and the boat was everything we could have hoped for! The DJ told us we didn’t have to buy favors for the kids, because the “boat is enough” and he was right! We loved it & can’t wait to come back!
I would like to give you and your staff a “Job Well Done.”
I, on behalf of my organization with your patience and understanding planned and executed an outstanding event for 150 plus guest. It was truly inspiring. The staff was courteous and diligent in the way they represented themselves and the organization. They served, entertained and treated our guest with true energy unmatched in any arena. It was a true “Dining” experience. The ambiance and atmosphere was inviting and pleasant. I was truly impressed by the attentiveness of the front line staff to the Dining/Cruising needs of the guests. On a number of occasions I was able to observe staff extending exemplary customer service with a smile. The white glove treatment was noticed and appreciated. The Bartenders were professional and dynamic in keeping the guest engaged and refreshed. The Maitre D staff of Elvin and Lisa were remarkably superb. They were not only ensuring the evening was a success but also encouraging and supporting me in the process. The evening then became an extravaganza with the skills of D.J. Bobby from Party Perfect NYC; DYNOMITE. They forgot that they were on a cruise! The event was a dream for me made a reality by you and your support staff. A success I am proud to have experienced. Thank you. I would recommend you and your organization “Skyline Princess” to anyone looking for the best in Dining and Cruising.
