We mark many milestones in our lifetimes. Your wedding day, the day your children are born, and your retirement are just a few examples of the days that people never forget. For many teens, another milestone involves a coming of age celebration. For some, that means a Sweet Sixteen party, while others celebrate the 15th birthday tradition called a Quinceañera party. It’s a day your family and friends will remember forever and you want to plan something incredible. If someone in your life has a Sweet Sixteen or Quinceañera coming up you want to have it on a Skyline Cruise.
Skyline Can Make Your Celebration Magical
Skyline Cruises is in its 25th season of thrilling guests who attend events or public dinner cruises aboard our 3-deck luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess. Imagine holding your Sweet Sixteen or Quinceañera in the shadow of some of Manhattan’s most iconic sites including Historic Gracie Mansion, The Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, United Nations, and Ellis Island. Your excursion will be topped off by magical views of the Statue of Liberty. In addition to the spectacular sights, Skyline offers gourmet food and everything you need to plan a successful event.
Getting Ready for Your Sweet Sixteen/Quinceañera
If you’re planning a Sweet Sixteen, the Spruce recommends sending out invitations three to five weeks before the event. It’s also a good idea to pick a theme. It can be a princess party or guests can dress like they’re Hollywood or rock stars, or come up with your own unique theme. The website latina.com suggests choosing a Quinceañera dress six months before the ceremony. You should send your save the date cards at that time and schedule a hair and makeup trial four months before the event. Three weeks before the ceremony, you should finalize the guest list.
Why the Skyline Princess is The Perfect Venue
Once you’ve laid the groundwork for your event you can see the benefits of the Skyline Princess. The lower decks of the ship can be used for a cocktail hour and a dining area, while the all-weather rooftop deck, also called the Skylight Deck which is where you’ll find our dance floor and our DJ space. The Skylight Deck can be open-air or left enclosed and the Skyline Princess leaves in all types of weather so you don’t have to worry about canceling your event.
