No sightseeing in Chicago will compare to what you experience from the decks of this scenic cruise. Photo opportunities abound as you leisurely traverse the waters, allowing for unique views of famous skyscrapers and celebrated landmarks. Weather permitting, this outing heads north towards North Avenue Beach, then traverses south towards Burnham Harbor and the Planetarium. All the while, you'll enjoy unparalleled views of Willis Tower, the John Hancock, and the iconic Navy Pier Ferris wheel.
When it comes to wining and dining along the Windy City's waterfront, the Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise is second to none. Guests can expect top-notch service from a wait staff who will adorn your private table with three courses of delectable cuisine. Food is prepared fresh, featuring a locally sourced menu that includes an exquisite selection of appetizers, savory entrees and tempting desserts.
As one of the most remarkable things to do in Chicago, this cruise delivers the utmost in entertainment! Allow appropriately mellow music to serenade you as the cruise begins and dining ensues. Afterwards, strap on some dancing shoes and move your feet to the beats of the ship's DJ, who will pick up the song-spinning pace and set the scene for a lively dance party on Lake Michigan!
The Chicago Gourmet Lunch Cruise is an ideal way to celebrate a special occasion, add some dazzle to an afternoon date, or do Chicago sightseeing differently. So whether you're visiting the Windy City or call it home, give your day a unique boost aboard this distinguished boat!
