Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Spend an exceptional evening cruising the shoreline of Chicago onboard a luxury yacht, admiring the city’s striking architecture as you enjoy a gourmet 3-course dinner. It’s the perfect way to spend a festive evening living it up with friends, family, or that special someone during your time in Chicago.

Make your way to Navy Pier on the evening of your cruise, making sure to dress to impress for this festive evening. As you make your way through this famous entertainment complex, enjoy the bustling mix of pedestrians, street performers, and lakeshore views found at this famous pier.

Then step on board your yacht to begin your unforgettable evening. Receive a personal welcome from the captain and crew as you climb aboard. You’ll also have your picture taken by the ship's photographer to help capture the moment. Then follow your host as you’re whisked to your private table for your meal. The servers will introduce themselves and offer you the chance to decide how you’d like them to pace your meal.

Your evening’s menu consists of a collection of seasonally-selected hors d’oeuvres, entrées, side dishes, and desserts, each of which is freshly created on board the ship each day. See the Itinerary below for full details. Pair your dinner with a drink from the full-service bar, offering a variety of craft beers, unique cocktails, and wine list (at your own expense). Musical entertainment is provided by the onboard DJ, who will keep things lively with a mix that covers everything from classic jazz to more contemporary hits.

When you have a few moments, make sure to explore the ship’s luxurious design and amenities. Ranging from the temperature-controlled dining area to the Observation deck, you’re sure to notice the vessel’s attention to detail and unique art deco interior accents, most of which pay homage to the classic ocean liners of yesteryear. Make sure to also stop by the Captain’s bridge, an area that’s open to all guests for the majority of the cruise.

The atmosphere and food were GREAT! Music was great as well! I was a little upset by the fact that we did not receive the souvenir glass we were promised, even though we were charged the full price which included the glass. We didn’t even receive a discounted price which we were told we would at the beginning of dinner. That was disappointing

Tickets would not print. The redemption center was closed so the process was confusing. The staff was friendly and professional. I loved the DJ and his choice of music. He really maintained the vibe throughout the cruise. The food was delicious with the exception of dessert. Dessert was awful. The chocolate cake had no flavor or moisture.

Okay experience
AAA
, May 2021
I’ll be honest, this experience could have been pleasant but there were a few issues. First, if you’re going to require a dress code, then please hold people to that requirement. We dressed up, only to find others on the trip wearing shorts. The food was pretty good, but the dining experience was very rushed and the staff was frantic throughout the dinner. The staff kept trying to rush us to the observation deck and we we moved up to that area, it was dangerously windy out. They should have warned us, or not suggested the visit to the outdoor deck in those conditions. Unfortunately, they don’t have control of the weather, but they put us in a precarious position when sending guests out to a windy area that was dangerous. Finally, you took photos of us (in the wind) and tried to sell those photos to us for an inflated price. You should have had a contingency plan for indoor photos instead of making guests take unsightly photos in the wind. All in all, the experience was mediocre and a lot of the visit could have been pleasant if the staff weren’t running us over on the way to the bathrooms and around the boat and if children weren’t screaming at tables. That’s not what I was coming to the boat to hear. Great views of the city though.
