Fall is here! The season of cozy sweaters, pumpkin-flavored everything, and opportunities aplenty for fun family activities! Our top fall activity suggestion, of course, is a dinner cruise aboard the toasty warm Skyline Princess. When you sail with Skyline, you are guaranteed an unforgettable time no matter the time of year. Choose between a New York City cruise or a Long Island Sound cruise. No matter which route you choose, you’re sure to be amazed by the spectacular sights!
Fall Colors of Long Island’s Gold Coast
The Western North Shore of Long Island and the Connecticut side of the Sound offer scenic autumn views that you certainly do not want to miss. The optimal time to see the best foliage is late October and early November when the Long Island Sound is surrounded by the beauty of the fall season. You will also be treated to views of historic landmarks including Fort Schuyler, the home to SUNY Maritime College, and Fort Totten, a Civil War Fortress. We also sail past notable lighthouses such as Sands Point, Execution Rocks, and Stepping Stones!
Additionally, the North Shore of Long Island is dotted with nature preserves and parks including Sands Point Preserve, Welwyn Preserve, and Oyster Bay National Wildlife Refuge which are home to hundreds of species of birds, sea turtles, harbor seals, and fish. This is what makes our Western Long Island Sound Fall Foliage and Bird Watching Cruise something to be seen!
New York City Skyline and Skyline Cruises
Of course, when you choose to sail the New York Harbor, you’ll get a front-row seat to the most iconic city views which are even more beautiful in the fall. We will sail past the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, United Nations, and One World Trade Center. We will also pass the Triborough, Queensborough, Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges. The most memorable opportunity you’ll have is, of course, when we sail right past Lady Liberty herself!
Our public dinner cruises depart from our home port at the World’s Fair Marina in Flushing, Queens, and parking is always free making it easy and convenient for all!
Eat, Drink, and Have Fun
Four hours of great fun comes included with a Skyline dinner cruise. You will also enjoy a delicious three-course meal at the buffet including:
- Caesar Salad
- Four dinner entrees choices (Chicken, Seafood, Meat, and Vegetarian), accompanied by potatoes and vegetables
- A selection of gourmet desserts
- Coffee, tea, and water are included. We do offer beverage package upgrades as well.
Once you’ve finished your dinner, head on up to our all-weather toasty warm rooftop dance floor, the Skylight Deck, which can be open-aired or enclosed, to spend the rest of the night under the stars. This space features room for a DJ and a spacious dance floor so that you can dance the night away.
Experience the Season with Skyline
No matter the time of year, a Skyline cruise is always a great idea when it comes to having fun. We hope to see you aboard this fall and experience the magic of the season together. For more information or to book your dinner cruise, contact Skyline Cruises today!
