Sometimes it’s hard to wrap your head around New York City. There’s so much to see and do that it’s hard to plan an outing, event, or celebration. If you’re looking to put together an excursion that will capture the essence of the city while creating an unforgettable experience for your guests, there is nothing quite like a Skyline Cruise. We’re wrapping up our 25th season of showing our customers the world-famous sights of New York City. Need more reasons to cruise with Skyline aside from the delicious food and sailing aboard our 3-deck luxury yacht the Skyline Princess? Here are 5 more great reasons to choose Skyline.
1. Our NYC Dinner Cruises Are Spectacular
There’s nothing quite like Skyline’s public dinner cruises. They’re the perfect night out if you want to spend time with friends or family. Looking to impress a client or business associate? Dinner cruises are a great way to entertain business clients. You’ll see the spectacular sights of New York City including:
- Statue of Liberty
- Ellis Island
- The Empire State Building
- United Nations
- Brooklyn Bridge
- One World Trade Center
Our public dinner cruises leave from our home port at the World’s Fair Marina. You’ll get up-close views of all of these sights and plenty of opportunities for great photographs. What can be more thrilling for those out of town relatives than a photograph in front of the Statue of Liberty.
2. Skyline Offers Charters Throughout the Metropolitan Area
If you’re planning a corporate event, school event, or big celebration, the Skyline Princess has the space you need as she is Coast Guard certified to carry up to 450 people. Full ship charters leave throughout the metropolitan area, not just our home port in Flushing, Queens. We depart from ports in Westchester, Connecticut, New Jersey, Manhattan, and Long Island.
3. The Skyline Princess Is Ideal for Whatever You’re Planning
When you charter the Skyline Princess, you’ll find that it’s the perfect venue. The ship is fully climate controlled, so you won’t have to worry about weather cancellations. Our spacious 3-deck layout will ensure that you can put together the event you’re envisioning. The lower deck is suited for dining or a cocktail hour. You can plan a business meeting, charity auction, or hold a themed event like casino night. The top deck, known as the Skylight Deck, features a DJ space and a spacious dance floor so your guests can dance the night away as you glide by the NYC skyline.
4. Skyline is Perfect for Corporate Events
If you’re a corporate event planner, Skyline Cruises has everything you need to make your event successful. Whether you’re looking for a venue for company meetings, entertaining clients, planning a team-building event, or holding an office party or celebration, you’ll find the Skyline Princess has what you’re looking for.
5. A Unique Venue for Celebrations
We’ve hosted events of all types in our 25 years – birthday celebrations, Sweet Sixteens, Quinceañeras, and religious milestones including Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, first communions, and confirmation celebrations. We’re a unique wedding venue and we even have our own officiant – our longtime friend Captain Arnold. We can handle events of almost any size. If you don’t have enough guests for a full ship charter, we can rent out a private deck on one of our public cruises, or you can simply reserve one or more tables.
