“The atmosphere, service, dinner and views while cruising, were absolutely amazing. My family and I found it excellent value and it was a great way to kick off our start to our US tours. Nothing else along the way has met our expectations like this tour. ...Janeen D., Australia – See more reviews
What To Expect
Step aboard the Chicago Dinner Cruise and enjoy a three-hour escape on Lake Michigan. Relaxing in the elegant ambiance that only a true luxury cruising vessel can provide, you'll sail along the lake shore and have unmatched views of the world-famous Chicago skyline.
For an experience that begins well before the cruise departs, arrive early dressed in your most festive attire. Enjoy the electric atmosphere of Navy Pier, alive with wandering entertainers and remarkable views that offer a taste of the experience to come.
The Captain and crew will greet you as you step aboard, and the ship's photographer will record the moment for your party. Once on deck, your host will greet you and escort you to your private table, where your wait staff will introduce themselves and give you the opportunity to decide how you'd like them to pace your service. From the three climate-controlled dining decks to the Observation deck, the dinner cruise offers a unique setting with understated Art Deco accents, reminiscent of the classic ocean liners. Be sure to visit the Captain's bridge, open to all passengers throughout most of the cruise.
A menu of creative seasonal hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, entrees and desserts is freshly prepared onboard daily, perfectly complemented by an excellent wine list.
Dance or relax and take in the views; it's your cruise! Make your way to our lit dance floor and let our upscale DJ entertain you. Or, head topside for light music and stunning skyline views from Chicago's best rooftop lounge.
