Itinerary

Pick up your tickets at the Navy Pier dockside kiosk up to one hour prior to your cruise. Be ready to board about a half-hour before your tour time.

Once you board and the ship sets sail, relax and catch sight of the sunset as you sip on a drink (own expense). Then sit down to enjoy dinner from a buffet with salads, entrees, desserts, and a carving station (see menu below in Itinerary). The buffet is all-you-can-eat so you won’t go hungry.

Next, hit the dance floor where a DJ plays popular party songs, or join in an interactive game. Dance the night away, or head back outside for more illuminated city views. If you’ve upgraded to the summer fireworks package, watch a fireworks show over the water.

Your cruise ends back at Chicago’s Navy Pier.

Great ride.

Excellent service. The food was good; great music. Excellent staff. My wife and I were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary and she loved the attention she received from the staff. The roses were fresh and the table was laid out to her approval.
