It’s hard to believe 2018 is almost over! Here at Skyline Cruises, we’re gearing up for our annual New Year’s Eve cruise that will cap off 2018 with one of the best views of the fireworks display you can find in the New York Metropolitan area. But you don’t have to wait all year to see spectacular New York City landmarks. You can find them all year long. We’re wrapping up our 25th season at Skyline Cruises, but we’re heading full speed ahead into 2019 and we want to talk about planning a 2019 trip with us.

Celebrate on our Public Dinner Cruises
Our public dinner cruises have been popular for a quarter of a century. We combine the beauty of New York City with excellent food and the amenities of the Skyline Princess, our 3-deck luxury yacht. All of our public cruises depart from our home port, which is conveniently located at the World’s Fair Marina in Flushing, Queens. You won’t have to worry about cancelations as the ship is enclosed and fully climate-controlled. Our dinner buffet is prepared by our in-house chef and includes a choice of entrée, salad, potatoes, vegetables, rolls, and dessert. You’ll have access to our top level “Skylight Deck,” which is enclosed or open air and is where our dance floor and DJ space are located. Each deck of the Skyline Princess has plenty of outdoor viewing areas so you can get an unimpeded view of the sights.
Plan Your 2019 Special Event with Skyline Cruises
If you’re looking to plan a wedding in 2019, the Skyline Princess is one of the truly unique venues in the tri-state area. Our yacht is a popular wedding venue and we provide a spectacular wedding ceremony conducted by our own celebrant, Captain Arnold. Talk to our experienced event planners about the variety of wedding packages we offer. There are full-service bars on every level and a central sound system to keep the party going.
The Skyline Princess is extraordinarily versatile and we can host just about any event you can think of. For corporate needs, we host activities including team-building corporate outings, fully hosted business meetings, or company parties. We are the place to go for personal celebrations including Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteens, Quinceañeras, high school proms or reunions, graduation parties, or family reunions. Worried about capacity? Don’t be. The Skyine Princess has been certified by the US Coast Guard to accommodate up to 450 passengers.
Skyline Cruises offers full ship charters, which can leave from ports throughout the area, including Manhattan, Westchester, Connecticut, New Jersey, and elsewhere on Long Island. If your event is not large enough to require a full ship charter, talk to us. We can offer you a private deck from one of our public cruises, which leave from the World’s Fair Marina, or we can reserve a table or two for intimate dinners. Whatever you’re looking for, contact our event planners today. We look forward to seeing you in 2019!
