Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises set a June 20 naming ceremony for the newest vessels to join its fleet, the Circle Line Queens and Circle Line Brooklyn, each named for a New York City borough.
The naming will occur at 10:30 a.m. on Pier 81 on the Hudson River.
The event will be part of on-pier festivities, dubbed Carnival Day, celebrating the arrival of the vessels and benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York. Circle Line will treat guests to a barbecue and complimentary cruises to the Statue of Liberty and back.
Prospective guests are advised to visit Circle Line's website, at www.CircleLine42.com
, to download and print as many as four vouchers for $1 each. The vouchers will provide preferred access to the event, whereas guests without vouchers will not be guaranteed admittance. All proceeds from the event (slated for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) will go to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York, and attendees will be encouraged to make on-site donations, as well.
