We’re already a month into spring and if you’ve been spending that time inside, you’re missing the best part of the season. There’s so much to do and see in the New York City area and you can do it all and have a ball with Skyline Cruises. You don’t need an excuse to book an excursion aboard our luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess, but if you need one, there’s plenty of reasons Skyline is perfect for any occasion.
Spring Sights on the Skyline Princess
Are you looking for a night out in warmer weather or an excuse to kick back with friends or family? Book your spot on one of our public dinner cruises. They’re easy to get to, as all of our public cruises leave from our home port at the World’s Fair Marina in Flushing, Queens. Parking is always free. You’ll see famous structures including the Empire State Building, United Nations, and One World Trade Center.
Manhattan won’t be the only famous island you’ll see. The Skyline Princess will pass by Wards and Randall’s Island, home of the FDNY Training Academy, Roosevelt Island and its famous tramway, and historic Ellis Island where more than 12 million immigrants were processed between 1892 and 1954. Your trip will culminate with an up-close view of Liberty Island and incredible views of the Statue of Liberty. You can take in all the sights all while dancing the night away on our rooftop dance floor.
Chartering the Skyline Princess
A trip on the East River to New York Harbor isn’t the only route that Skyline offers. If you’re looking for a scenic springtime trip, Skyline Cruises offers full ship private yacht charters leaving from ports in Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, Manhattan, and Connecticut.
There are plenty of reasons to charter the Skyline Princess in the spring. Enjoy scenic views of local lighthouses and beautiful mansions along the Long Island Sound as plant life starts to bloom during your next corporate outing. Whether you’re holding a business meeting, a team building exercise, or entertaining clients, the Skyline Princess has the room to accommodate what you want. Three full decks offer space for a gourmet buffet dinner and a business meeting. Our top deck, which can be open-air or enclosed, is known as the Skylight Deck and features a DJ space and a dance floor.
Skyline is perfect for the next big event in your life. Spring is graduation and prom season and a great time to plan a wedding. The Skyline Princess is a popular wedding venue. We can provide you with a bridal suite and we’re Coast Guard certified to allow up to 450 passengers. The Skyline Princess is fully enclosed and climate controlled for your comfort. Don’t have enough people for a full ship charter? We can reserve some tables or a private deck on a public cruise.
Springtime is the Perfect Time for a Skyline Cruise
A spring Long Island Sound cruise is perfect for birthday celebrations, anniversaries, and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. You can see historic forts like Fort Totten and Fort Schuyler, as well as the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point and historic north shore mansions. Cruising the Connecticut coastline? We depart from either Stamford or Norwalk and you’ll pass by marinas, yacht, and regatta clubs, private islands and breakers. New York City and Long Island come alive in the spring and you should be part of it. Contact Skyline and book your cruise today!
