Church Group Outings

cruise ship

Is your church group or temple considering a celebration? The Skyline Princess is proud to host private events and services for all faiths.

Whether it’s a Christian First Communion, a Jewish Bar/Bat Mitzvah, a celebration of Diwali (Festival of Lights), a festival meal for Eid al-Fitr, or a wedding of any denomination, we will give your event the care and respect such an occasion deserves. We consider it an honor to be part of such an important event in your lives.

Realizing Your Vision

We understand that getting the details right is vital, especially when a religious service is involved. Our experienced event staff will work with your organization to refine every aspect of your church group outing to make sure that your ceremony and/or festivities are exactly as desired.

Our expert party planners and renowned in-house chefs will work with you developing the theme, décor, and menu. If you have a specific outside caterer you’d like to use, we are happy to work with them to make your gathering the best it can be.

Religious Groups of Any Size

Ceremonies and events can run the gamut when it comes to size. Some are quiet and more intimate, often involving few beyond an officiant and family members. Others are grand affairs with hundreds of people in attendance and detailed traditional menus. No matter the size, the Skyline Princess has a suitable option for you.

For smaller groups, we can arrange private tables on our dinner cruises… but that is only the beginning. With our three enclosed decks we can accommodate groups of up to 450 people if desired with whole deck or full-ship charters.

All public cruises depart from our home port, The World’s Fair Marina in Flushing, Queens. However, full ship charters do have an additional choice of ports including (but not limited to) Chelsea Piers and Pier 36 in Manhattan, and Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City.

Magnificent Sights and Scenery

Think about it. An uplifting service and a fine meal, served with the serene majesty of New York City’s great landmarks and the natural beauty of New York State as the perfect backdrop. It will make memories your church group will not soon forget, as well as some great photo opportunities. A few of the world-famous landmarks you’ll see on your cruise will include:

  • The Statue of Liberty
  • The Empire State Building
  • The Chrysler Building
  • One World Trade Center
  • The BMW Bridges: Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg
  • South Street Seaport and Downtown NYC
  • And many more!
