School functions are some of our favorite events to host at Skyline Cruises. We love having a community of students, educators, and staff come together to show school spirit all while having a great time. Over the years, many proms, graduations, and reunions have been held on the Skyline Princess, but one of our favorite school related events to host are fundraisers!
We want to provide a unique and enriching experience for your institution while giving you a one-of-a-kind venue to give back! School is back in session, so if you have a fundraiser you are looking to plan, the time is now!
Planning Your School’s Fundraiser Cruise
School fundraisers are an excellent and fun way of getting a difficult goal met. Successful fundraisers can help your school collect finances for various purposes such as sports teams, art and music departments, or even new school uniforms! While there are tons of fundraising ideas out there, such as bake sales, talent shows, or car washes, truly nothing else is like experiencing your school’s fundraiser aboard a Skyline Cruise.
Features of the Skyline Princess
Usually, schools need to work within tight budgets, and we are happy to plan an event that fits your parameters. For larger budgets, you can charter our 3-deck climate-controlled ship the Skyline Princess. We offer full ship private charters from ports in NY, NJ, LI, Westchester, and CT. For smaller budgets, or if you would prefer a smaller event, you can book a private deck on one of our public cruises or you can book just a few tables. When planning a fundraiser, we typically recommend that you hold your event on a weekday or weeknight to avoid conflicting with the weekend plans of your guests.
The Skyline Princess offers 3 decks of fun for all. Our 3rd-floor Skylight deck features a dance floor and DJ Space. Dance the night away with students and teachers in the shadow of the iconic New York City skyline. Even better, the Skyline Princess sails year round.
All of our food is prepared fresh in the ship’s galley. We provide a beautiful dining space and will provide:
- Hors d’oeuvres
- Carving stations
- Pasta stations
- Bistro table
No dining experience is complete without a few sweet treats, so we also provide you with a dessert tray!
Skyline Cruises Brings Iconic Sights to Your Event
Cruising past famous buildings like the Empire State Building and the United Nations is what makes holding your school’s fundraiser aboard the Skyline Princess a truly unique and unforgettable experience. The Skyline Princess will pass under famous crossings including the Triborough Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. To top it all off, you will cruise right past the Statue of Liberty herself and be able to marvel at the breathtaking views. Skyline Cruises has it all and we want to help make your school’s fundraiser something to remember forever. For more information, contact Skyline Cruises today!
