You’ve probably heard the song “Summer in the City” by the Lovin’ Spoonful numerous times. It depicts dirty gritty sweaty days in a city that could well be New York. City days may be dreary to the Lovin’ Spoonful, but in the song, city nightlife is a much more fun in the summer. The group may be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but we’re betting that they’ve never been aboard a Skyline Cruise because we make both days and nights spectacular.
A Skyline Cruise is Perfect for Your Summer Event
Our luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess is the site of many incredible summer events. That’s because Skyline Cruises can give you unique views of some of the most famous sights in the world. The New York City Skyline. Among the iconic structures you’ll see aboard the Skyline Princess are:
- The Empire State Building
- United Nations
- One World Trade Center
- Brooklyn Bridge
- Ellis Island
- Statue of Liberty
The Skyline Princess will give you many unique views of Lady Liberty and plenty of photo opportunities. There are viewing areas available from all three decks of the Skyline Princess.
But a Skyline cruise is more than just a pretty view. We have gourmet food prepared by our on-board chefs and we are one of the tri-state area’s most sought after event venues.
