Summertime means house guests. Whether it’s your parents, siblings, children, or old friends from college, they are coming, and you are expected to entertain them.
New York City has a lot of things for visitors to do, but if you’ve lived here long, you’ve probably seen them all and done it all. Touring the city and the sites for the umpteenth time, and making it age-appropriate for everyone involved, can be dull for you and a bit of a logistics nightmare.
Or, if you listen to the suggestions Trip Advisor. has for entertaining tourists, you could spend a lot of money trying to make sure your house guests get to the must-see spots and have a great time. Add in the cost of getting around the city, plus meals, and suddenly their vacation costs you yours.
A helicopter tour. might give your guests one unforgettable view of the New York skyline, but those tours tend to be surprisingly short. By contrast, the Skyline Princess offers an equally outstanding view at a fraction of the cost and includes lunch or dinner, making it a more satisfying experience.
When we have house guests, one of the things we often want to do is be able to spend time chatting and catching up. Those are uncomfortable things to do while waiting in line to climb to the top of the Empire State Building. But on a private yacht sailing around the city, you can share stories, catch up on all the family gossip, and see the city sites without lines or traffic.
Cruise Options for Kids and Adults
If your house guests are bringing children, consider a lunch cruise. Whether on deck or in the air-conditioned cabin, kids will see the best the city skyline offers. With music and food on board, your younger guests can still have fun while learning about the city that never sleeps. And the adults can relax, have lunch, and enjoy themselves without having to hear cries of “I’m bored.”
For older house guests, consider an evening dinner cruise. Dinner, dancing, or other entertainment, can be a safe and fun alternative to taking unsuspecting visitors to a New York club. A night on the water gives you a safe way to have dinner and drinks without worrying about the venue being too crowded or waiting in line to get in.
Best of all, our captain is your designated driver. While aboard a Skyline cruise, you never have to worry about getting safely to your destination. With free parking at our dock at the World’s Fair Marina, you’ll know before leaving the house that you are spending a night relaxing with friends. No unexpected parking fees, high-cost taxis, or ride-shares; just hours of gorgeous views, fresh air, music, and fun.
Whether your house guests were a planned get-together or a spur-of-the-moment arrival for the weekend, everyone can enjoy their visit when you take a cruise.
