Baby showers are a wonderful way to make the parents-to-be feel special and help them get ready as they prepare for the birth of their child. There are many venues out there to hold a baby shower, but none are as unique as a New York City charter cruise.
Our premier NYC luxury yacht, the Skyline Princess, is a one-of-a-kind setting for any type of baby shower, whether you’re showering the expecting mom-to-be or the expectant couple. At Skyline Cruises, we have flexible cruise schedules and can accommodate any need, from private yacht charters that last three or four hours to public brunch cruises.
You and your guests can also sail the calm waters of New York Harbor aboard our all-weather, three-deck vessel, the Skyline Princess, and take in such sights as the Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and Governors Island, the South Street Seaport, the Empire State Building, the Freedom Tower, Chelsea Piers, the United Nations headquarters and the Chrysler Building. Alternatively, you could also book one of Skyline’s Long Island Sound or lighthouse cruises.
Our seasoned event planners can help you set the date, define the cruise and help you with all of the details, from the exquisite cuisine prepared by our onboard chef to the exciting live DJ entertainment.
Cool Themes for a Baby Shower aboard a Charter Cruise
With the venue all set, here are three fun baby shower ideas that you can use when planning the celebration for the parents-to-be aboard a NYC charter cruise:
- Nautical: Naturally, with a baby shower aboard a yacht, this idea would work well. There’s a whole host of items you could incorporate, from signs, invitations, decorations and favors depicting boats, anchors and ship’s wheels to cookies and cupcakes in the shape of little baby sailor’s onesie outfits, sailor hats, seashells, whales and other fish and aquatic life.
- Broadway: Being that you’ll be setting sail aboard the Skyline Princess in New York, how about a theme that celebrates The Great White Way? You can focus on some of the Disney favorites currently on Broadway, such as Aladdin or The Lion King, and pull ideas for decorations, favors and invitations from there.
- Co-Ed: A baby shower doesn’t always have to honor the mother-to-be. Instead, consider throwing a baby shower for both members of the expectant couple and turning it into a co-ed event. You could then have gender-neutral invitations, decorations and favors. You could even have everyone bring a baby picture of himself or herself and match up the baby pictures with each of the various guests at the shower for prizes.
To keep with the theme of being on the water, you can also try for an “Under the Sea,” tropical or luau theme for your baby shower. A “Big Apple” theme is also a great idea if you’re cruising the New York Harbor and taking in the Manhattan skyline aboard the Skyline Princess. If you decide to cruise along the Gold Coast of Long Island on the Skyline Princess, then The Great Gatsby or lighthouses are also unique baby shower themes.
