An all-you-can-eat buffet allows you to choose the food you like best

What to expect
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.

Wonderful Sunset View
Jul 2020
It was a great window view to watch the sunset on the lake. Our host and server Danny and trainee Donovan did a great job with our drink orders and refilling drinks. This was a beautiful close to our first time in Chicago.

Fun Evening
Oct 2019
Perfect start to our Chicago trip. I had never been to Chicago and thoroughly enjoyed being on the water and seeing the skyline. The buffet was good, not great, although there certainly was plenty to choose from.

Nice night views of the city
Oct 2019
The buffet dinner was better than expected as we are not really fans of buffets. The night views of the city were spectacular and they have a nice dance floor with a DJ playing music most of the night.

Perfect midwest evening for the cruise
The cruise was lovely. We had perfect weather although we didn't go beyond the breakwall so I don't imagine it gets super rough. There is seating arranged across the boat so there is something for everyone. The service was great. The food was just OK.

Be warned: racism allowed on board
Aug 2019 • Couples
A man in line making racist comments about Hispanics/Mexicans...and the crew still let him stay on board. I refused to board, spoke to a lady lady on the phone, who kindly granted a refund.

Fantastic cruise!
Aug 2019 • Couples
I don't normally write reviews,but we had such a great experience. The staff on board were very friendly and accommodating. The view from the decks were stunning and the sunset was gorgeous. The buffet was really good and they had plenty of options. We received a special dessert for my birthday and the manager made sure she greeted and spoke with all the guests. The also had a great DJ that had the guests up and dancing.
