Sail ho and test your sea legs by taking a boat or ferry trip around New York City. It's impossible to explore the whole city on foot, and using the subway means missing out on all of the impressive views while in transit.

Sightseeing from the water offers a totally different perspective of this colossal city, and visitors have countless cruise options available that are family-friendly, budget-friendly, or booze-friendly. Once you're up close to the Statue of Liberty or sailing directly underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, you'll see there's really no other way to experience these New York landmarks.

You are likely to get wet on the Beast, so don't forget a change of clothes if you plan to continue sightseeing after the cruise.

The Beast runs from early May until the end of September and doesn't go out during rain.

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes’ Daughter Suri Spotted Attending Her NYC Prom

The 18-year-old posed for pictures with friends before attending her high school prom, according to new photos.

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise

Suri Cruise is celebrating the next milestone in life — graduating from high school! But first, the 18-year-old celebrated an even bigger event: her prom. Photos of the teen posing for pictures alongside friends and her prom date are circulating online, and Suri was dressed to the nines for the night out.

According to photos published by Page Six on Wednesday, June 19, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes ‘ daughter was spotted wearing a stunning multi-colored dress on Tuesday, June 18, in New York City. While smiling for the cameras with her date, Suri wore her hair down in a simply sleek style and wore a corsage on her wrist. The high school senior completed the fairytale-esque look with a pair of gold high heels.

Although Suri’s mom, 45, wasn’t seen with her that evening, the mother-daughter duo have been spotted out and about in the Big Apple over the past few months. Since the two share several physical qualities, they look almost identical while twinning in fashion choices.

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise

Katie and Tom, 61, welcomed Suri in April 2006. After the ex-spouses divorced in 2012, Suri lived with her mom in New York.

Since Suri and Katie have made it a point to maintain their privacy, the teen is rarely seen by fans in public. Despite living in one of the busiest cities in the world, they’ve made it a point to stay grounded and away from the public eye.

While speaking with Town & Country magazine in 2017, Katie opened up about how she was able to give Suri a wholesome childhood, despite being public figures.

“My child is the most important person to me, and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now,” the actress explained to the outlet. “It’s very important that I’m present and she has a stable, innocent childhood. I feel so blessed to do what I do, but there’s nothing in the world better than watching your child succeed.”

As for Tom, the Mission Impossible franchise star is rarely seen out and about with his daughter. Multiple outlets have reported over the years that they became distant following his and Katie’s 2012 divorce.

SNYDE | Tom Cruise attends Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, skips daughter’s NYC graduation

om Cruise exchanges friendship bracelets at Taylor Swift's second London show of the Eras Tour.

The “Mission Impossible” star, 61, was seen partaking in the Swiftie tradition as he made his way to his VIP seat at Wembley Stadium, according to photos obtained by Us Weekly.

The sighting came a day after the movie star’s younger daughter, Suri, graduated from LaGuardia High School in New York — with her father reportedly nowhere to be seen .

He also missed his estranged daughter’s 18th birthday in April while filming a project in London, reported TMZ.

Cruise’s attendance at the London leg of The Eras Tour was hardly the only A-list sighting. The previous night, Swift and boyfriend Travis Kelce posed backstage with birthday boy Prince William and his two older kids .

Kelce’s big brother, Jason, and sister-in-law, Kylie, also joined the Super Bowl champ in the audience.

The “cardigan” singer’s second show was reportedly attended by Greta Gerwig, Hugh Grant, Liam Hemsworth, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, according to Us Weekly.

Swift announced last week at the 100th performance of her record-breaking tour — the first to ever gross over $1 billion — that it would officially end in December .

Tom Cruise was all smiles at Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour show in London Saturday night the day after daughter Suri’s high school graduation in NYC just hours prior.

The “Top Gun” star looked gleeful at Wembley Stadium as he traded friendship bracelets with fans ahead of the singer’s second of three sold-out performances in England’s capital city.

The 61-year-old actor — who rocked dark wash jeans, a white T-shirt and a black jacket — sat among A-list attendees including Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Hugh Grant and “Barbie” director Greta Gerwig.

Cruise appeared to be having the time of his life as he — much like Prince William the night prior — danced along to the Grammy winner’s hit song “Shake it Off” with his famous peers in the VIP tent.

Swift’s beau, Travis Kelce, was also among stars as he attended his second London concert in a row with his brother and sister-in-law, Jason and Kylie .

Meanwhile in the US, Cruise’s estranged 18-year-old daughter graduated from LaGuardia High School the day prior.

A beaming Suri was photographed greeting friends outside the venue shortly after they received their diplomas.

She also eagerly took pictures with mom Katie Holmes, who proudly stood by her daughter’s side on the special day.

The teenager dressed for the heat in a white sundress and heels adorned with a flower.

She completed her summery ensemble with a red graduation robe and white sash.

The 45-year-old “Dawson’s Creek” alum, for her part, looked cheerful in beige pleated trousers and a matching collared shirt.

Cruise’s choice to opt out of the graduation does not come as a surprise, as he has been estranged from the teen for years .

Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise and baby Suri

Suri even dropped the “Risky Business” actor’s last name in her school’s official graduation pamphlet, opting instead to go by her first and middle names, “Suri Noelle.”

Cruise confirmed in a 2012 deposition that Holmes divorced him “in part to protect Suri from Scientology.”

Followers of the controversial religion are not allowed to associate with nonbelievers.

Suri — who revealed she will attend Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh in the fall — did not let her father’s absence ruin her final days of high school.

Earlier this week, she was seen having a blast with her friends as they took pictures before they went off to prom.

Suri looked like a spitting image of her mother in a ’90s-inspired floral gown that featured a corseted bodice.

Holmes and Cruise split in 2011 nearly six years after tying the knot.

The “Mission Impossible” actor shares daughter Isabella, 31, and son Connor, 29, with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, whom he separated from in 2001 following an 11-year marriage.

Cruise still spends time with his eldest children as they have followed in his Scientology-practicing footsteps.
