September has arrived and in New York that means it’s time for school. Parents are scrambling to get back into the routine, kids are grumbling about homework and renewing friendships, while teachers, administrators and organizations like the PTA are going about the business of running their schools. With school back in session it’s time to plan the school year and there are a number of events to put on the calendar.
Skyline is the Perfect Venue for School Functions
If you’re planning an orientation event, school field trip, prom, after-prom or formal, or if you’re looking ahead to graduations or class reunions there’s no better venue for it than on a Skyline Cruise. Our 3-deck luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess, is Coast Guard certified to carry up to 450 guests and you’ll cruise past some of the most iconic sights in the world with Skyline. But that’s not all. We want to show you why Skyline is the perfect place for your event.
The website PTO Today suggests several ideas for planning school events. Among the suggestions are reaching out to the school community to get their expertise in making plans. You can also ask experts to speak if your function includes speakers. Having guests bring supplies can bring down costs if budgets are a concern.
Events Aboard the Skyline Princess
Skyline has hosted school functions since we started business in 1993. In fact, we host all types of events. We’re the place to go for corporate events like business meetings or entertaining clients. Skyline hosts all types of celebrations as well from weddings, Bar or Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteen or Quinceañara to graduation parties. We also host proms and after-prom events.
We accommodate groups of all sizes and types working with all kinds of budgets. We can offer you a full ship charter for your event, but we also can reserve a private deck on one of our public cruises. For even smaller parties, we can reserve one or two tables on a public cruise. Talk to us about the budget for your school event and what your needs are. We’ll do our best to accommodate you.
Our private ship charters leave from our home port at the World’s Fair Marina and we also offer full ship charters from many ports in New York, New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester and Connecticut.
We operate all year round and we offer plenty of space. For example, you can use our lower deck as a dining area and the middle deck for activities such as an orientation. The top deck, known as the skylight deck, includes a dance floor and a DJ space that’s great for proms and reunions. We offer all types of food options from a sit down banquet to a casual cocktail party. Our food is prepared by our in-house chef, but we also allow clients to bring their own caterer on a full ship charter. If you prefer, there can be no food service at all.
Skyline Will Show Your Guests Spectacular Sights
If you hold your school event on a Skyline Cruise you’ll have tremendous food and a wonderful atmosphere as you pass famous sights like The Brooklyn Bridge, United Nations and Statue of Liberty. We’ll work with you to make what you want to happen. Contact us today.
