Unless your family is the type that eats dinner away from home every night, planning dinner for Father’s Day isn’t much of a treat. And let’s face it, he’s the dad, so what could you possibly get him that he couldn’t just buy himself if he wanted it?
The answer, of course, is time. No matter how much your father might want to, Dad can’t buy time with the family. But maybe you can.
How Can I Make Father’s Day Special?
We’ve all heard our parents say it at least once: “All I really want is to see you.” For some of our parents, it might even be true. So the best way to make Dad’s day super special is to bring the entire family together and go on a cruise of New York Harbor.
Sure, you could just plan his favorite dinner at home, but then there’s the prep and the cleanup. You’re exhausted before you even sit down to dinner, and unless he wants to hang out in the kitchen, Dad probably didn’t get to spend that time with you.
If you are like most families, someone inevitably is bored and looking for something to do, sometimes even before dinner is served.
Why not save yourself the work and ensure the entire family has something entertaining to do? There is no chance to get stuck in the living room watching reruns of Dad’s favorite show when you plan an afternoon or night out on a Skyline cruise. We can’t promise Dad won’t want to sit around and reminisce, but if he does, you’ll be doing it surrounded by the water and the gorgeous New York skyline.
And if he’s not the sit-and-tell-stories type, that’s even better. All Skyline cruises feature music and plenty of room on deck or in the cabin to enjoy the sea breeze, gorgeous views, and family love.
Will My Dad Enjoy a Father’s Day Cruise?
Many experts recommend techie toys for Dad this Father’s Day, but take a minute to look around. Is he even using whatever gadget you got him last year or the year before? Like most of us, fathers enjoy making memories with their families.
Memories are more important than things, always. Spending quality time with Dad and great backdrops for fantastic photographs will create memories your family will cherish.
So while we can’t guarantee that this will be Dad’s favorite holiday ever, we will do our best to make it happen. We have both lunch and dinner cruise options for Father’s Day so that you can cruise New York Harbor by day or night.
Chances are seeing everyone smiling at their catered lunch or dinner, and “oohing” and “ahhing” at the view will bring a big grin to Dad’s face. Best of all, no one is stuck in the kitchen cooking or doing the dishes. The family, which Dad wants the most for the holiday, is right here with him, enjoying the sights and sounds of New York at night.
Perhaps best of all, no one’s arguing about who got Dad the better present. After all, you know it was you, and you were the one who called us to book the cruise Dad will never forget.
