What’s your family like? Do you see each other often, or do you have siblings, cousins and family members scattered across the U.S., maybe even the world? Have you met all of the members of your family? Have your children? If your family hasn’t been together for a while and you miss them, maybe it’s time to think about holding a family reunion.

Creating a Family Reunion
According to USA Today, there are many reasons why you might plan a family reunion. It could have to be because there’s a major family milestone that’s coming up like a 25th or 50th wedding anniversary, or college graduation. Some families have regularly scheduled reunions, while others plan a once in a lifetime event.
If you’re planning a family reunion, HuffPost gives several suggestions. Try to get some help. Planning can be time consuming and also costly. Don’t be afraid to ask those attending to share in the costs, but remember that not everyone in your family has the same income level. Make certain you give enough lead time before the event to plan things to make certain they get done. When you announce plans make certain they’re firm. Don’t keep changing the date, it will create confusion. And try to create an event everyone can enjoy, which is why Skyline is ideal.
Skyline Has Something for Everyone
If you book your family reunion aboard the Skyline Princess you will create a day your family will never forget. If you’re bringing in guests from out of town, or even if you’re not, your loved ones will be thrilled by the iconic sights like The Empire State Building, United Nations, Brooklyn Bridge, and of course, the Statue of Liberty.
The Skyline Princess has all the amenities you need. We will prepare gourmet food for you, courtesy of our in-house chef and we’ll give you plenty of menu options. Don’t worry about the weather ruining your reunion! The Skyline Princess leaves year round and our ship is climate controlled.
