Take a 2.5-3 hour gourmet dinner cruise on a high-end luxury yacht with the stunning skyline of Chicago as your backdrop. Climb aboard your recently renovated vessel, featuring a sumptuously-appointed rooftop lounge and stylish interior design, for your cruise along Lake Michigan. Then sit down for a 3-course dinner, informed by some of the world’s top celebrity chefs and composed of fresh ingredients cooked right on-board. After dinner, enjoy coffee and tea, captivating views of Chicago landmarks like the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower and John Hancock building, plus musical entertainment provided by the on-board DJ.
What to Expect
Spend an exceptional evening cruising the shoreline of Chicago on board 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 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. Accompany your dinner with a drink from the full-service bar, offering a variety of craft beers, unique cocktails and totally updated wine list (at your own expense). Musical entertainment is provided by the on-board 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.
