School events are among the most special events we ever host at Skyline Cruises. Very often, they are days our guests will remember for the rest of their lives. Whether it’s a prom, graduation party, or reunion, it’s going to be an unforgettable day and it needs to be done right. For school events like field trips or educational programs, we want to provide an enriching experience for your institution. Skyline has been hosting school events for more than a quarter century and although it still seems the end of the school year is far away, the time to plan is now.
Planning Your Prom or Graduation Cruise
Graduation parties are meant to give graduates a reward for a job well done and to have one final event to share with schoolmates before moving on to the next chapter of their lives. But parents of high school graduates know that alcohol is a concern at graduation events. Psychology Today cites statistics by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that April through June is when one-third of traffic fatalities involving teens occur.
Skyline Cruises is proud to offer a safe environment for your high school prom or graduation aboard our luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess. We’re a great venue to host Project Graduation events. If you’re unfamiliar with Project Graduation, it’s a program designed to create an alcohol-free atmosphere. Schools looking to hold Project Graduation events are advised that they are responsible for bringing chaperones and supervising students.
The Skyline Princess is Perfect for Your College Event
We don’t just hold high school events aboard the Skyline Princess. We’re also the perfect setting for college events of all types. We’ll host graduation events, formal or informal reunions, fundraisers, alumni events, orientation week outings, or just good old-fashioned mixers.
The Skyline Princess offers a great backdrop for whatever event you’re planning. Our 3rd-floor Skylight deck features a dance floor and DJ space. You can twirl away in the shadow of the New York City skyline, capped off by incredible photo opportunities in front of the Statue of Liberty. Or you can view the beautiful lighthouses, mansions, and historic buildings on Long Island Sound.
Educational Opportunities Aboard the Skyline Princess
The Skyline Princess is a wonderful destination for educational opportunities. That’s why we’re a popular location for school field trips. We can offer you the space to teach your lesson and we’ll work with you to fit your needs. If you have any questions about your trip, feel free to speak with our event planners.
Skyline Offers Full Ship Charters at Area Ports
Skyline Cruises makes our home port in Flushing, Queens at the World’s Fair Marina, where parking is always free. All of our public cruises leave from there. The marina is centrally located and accessible from the tri-state area, including Westchester, Connecticut, New Jersey, Manhattan, and Long Island. For smaller events, you can charter a private deck or reserve a few tables on our public cruises. Give your school the event it deserves.
