You’ll make unforgettable memories and cherish the fabulous photos you’ll take with the Statue of Liberty and other world-famous New York landmarks in the background. Due to social distancing guidelines, our capacity is strictly limited. Please call for the latest guest guidelines.

The Skyline Princess offers unparalleled access to its three decks, including our all-weather rooftop deck with a dance floor and dedicated DJ space, if you hire one. Event/party hosts can hire a caterer to provide food and drinks and can bring in their own staff to accommodate guest needs during private events. Alcohol is allowed on a limited basis. We can provide a list of recommended vendors or you can choose your own. We provide the space; you bring the party!

Why watch fireworks on TV when you can see spectacular 4th of July and New Year’s Eve fireworks from the skylight deck of the Skyline Princess? The climate-controlled cabin and enclosed all-weather rooftop deck provide spectacular views of the celebrations. Bring that special someone or a group of special someones. Our popular cruises are sure to make these holidays even more fun.

“We very much enjoyed our evening aboard the Skyline Princess. Weather was just great! The food was delicious, service impeccable, comfort and enjoyment was excellent. Will definitely board again for future corporate events. Again, thank you, and a big thank you to the staff on board the Skyline Princess, a truly memorable event.”

Your Safety is Our First Priority

Our three-deck super yacht is currently operating with a limited maximum capacity of 100 people (~10% regular capacity) to keep its passengers safely distanced. The Skyline Princess meets or exceeds NYC guidelines for health and safety. While we extensively outline our safety policies in greater detail in our July 2nd blog post and on our COVID procedures page, we are taking the following precautions on all of our boat tours:


  • We undergo and pass inspection by the NYC Department of Health and the U.S. Coast Guard.
  • All staff have their temperatures taken prior to boarding the ship.
  • Our ship is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before any guests are allowed aboard.
  • Passenger capacity has been greatly reduced, even beyond Department of Health limits.
  • All guests 18 and older must supply contact information for Contact Tracers.
  • All guests must have their temperatures taken prior to their cruise. Guests with temperatures will not be permitted to board.
  • Health questionnaires must be completed prior to boarding.
  • Private tables will be set up for all groups to maintain social distancing guidelines.
  • All guests ages 3+ must have appropriately fitting face coverings except while eating or if medically exempt. Guests who do not use face coverings are not permitted to board.
