Quite simply, a Chicago dinner cruise is the perfect night out. A magical setting enhanced by a spectacular firework display off Navy Pier that will light up your night with color and sound!
An evening filled to the brim with wonderful cuisine, live DJ music and dancing under a canopy of stars. For a party of two or a group of friends this is the ultimate Chicago experience.
You will know you are in for a fun evening the moment you step aboard the festive decks and are escorted to your table. Order drinks, then feel free to explore the ship while the crew casts off for a wonderful evening along the lakefront.
Savor your culinary selections over perfectly paced dinner music and a never ending view of Chicago's breathtaking skyline seen through our huge panoramic windows. Truly, a sight you won't soon forget.
Take your drinks topside and relax on the largest outdoor patio deck in the city while the sky above the lakefront is filled with spectacular displays of color and thundering sounds of Navy Pier's remarkable fireworks show.
This firework show provides the perfect pause before the pulsing beat of dance tunes entices you onto the dance floor. The perfect end to the perfect night!
