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.

Chicago Fireworks Dinner Cruise:

In the summer months, upgrade your Chicago Dinner Cruise experience to include a spectacular fireworks display on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and select Thursday's and Fridays. You will observe the show from the decks of the ship and see the magnificent sky lit up at night.

The product in terms of the dinner cruise was excellent (5 star) that is once we were allowed to board. Service, meal, drinks etc great! The booking was a nightmare, problematic from start right up to boarding. Confusion reigned; Not sure who to thank or blame. Everyone seemed anxious to blame someone else. (a lot of "there's nothing we can do). My wife loves this experience so I'll be back.

The experience was great, however there was a wedding party there and they over took the whole experience from others, it did for me. I was there celebrating our Anniversary and it felt like we crashed a wedding instead of enjoying the quietness of a nice dinner and enjoying the dance floor. The wedding party was super loud and they took over the dance floor, guest were trying to dance but ended up going back to their seats. The cruise was nice, the food was good, the music was good, just wished there wasn't a wedding party to take over the boat.
