There’s a reason why the most popular graduation march is called “Pomp and Circumstance.” Dictionary.com defines pomp and circumstance to mean “splendid celebration with ceremony and fuss.” and that’s what a graduation is. It’s a big celebration worthy of all the bells and whistles you can put into it. That’s why there’s no better place for newly minted graduates to celebrate than with a Skyline Cruise. You can book a variety of graduation celebrations, or related events like proms aboard our luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess.
The Skyline Princess is the Perfect Venue for All School Events
Skyline Cruises will give you a spectacular backdrop for your graduation. You can charter the Skyline Princess for one of our East River Cruises, where you’ll see the iconic sights of New York City such as the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center and of course the Statue of Liberty.
All of our public dinner cruises leave from our home dock located at the World’s Fair Marina in Queens. We also offer full ship charters that can leave from docks in Westchester, and Connecticut, where graduates can cruise the Long Island Sound. You may also choose to depart from New Jersey or elsewhere in New York City where you can cruise the Hudson River.
Whatever your choice, The Skyline Princess is the perfect venue for your school events.
Planning Your Graduation Dinner Cruise
If you’re in charge of planning a high school graduation or prom, you should know the Skyline Princess provides a safe atmosphere in a controlled setting. One popular graduation trend is “Project Graduation.” These are graduation events that are hosted in alcohol-free environments.
The Skyline Princess is perfect for such an event. Graduates can show off their dance moves on our Skylight Deck, which can be open air or enclosed. The deck has a DJ space and dance floor. And we’ll work with you to implement your theme.
The Skyline Princess is climate controlled and we depart all year round. In addition to the private club atmosphere we can create on the Skylight deck which is perfect for both high school and college age celebrations, we also can plan a terrific menu for your graduation celebration. All of our food is prepared by our in-house chefs. We can give your school group a choice of entrees, appetizers and carving stations as we’ll design a menu to fit your specifications.
