This cruise is not available for New Year's Day, Valentines, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day or New Year's Eve. Sometimes for those dates, this cruise is replaced by a special event cruise at different rates.
The experience begins as you board our luxury yacht at the Pier. After a quick stop for a commemorative boarding photo (available for purchase at the end of your cruise), one of our hosts will seat you at your private table. Relax with a beverage, or tour the ship's three indoor dining rooms.
A great way to start your afternoon is by watching the boat cast off from one of our outside observation decks. When you are ready to begin lunch, order your meal from the extensive menu of creative appetizers, entrees and desserts complemented perfectly by our excellent wine list. Bring an appetite, as the food is delicious, plentiful and always prepared freshly to your specifications.
Entertainment? You bet! The Sapphire and Topaz Decks will have three piece bands with vocalists offering a broad repertoire. Our Amethyst deck will feature the piano and vocal stylings of Steve Carson, performing classical, jazz, show tunes, and pop selections that offer guests a slightly more relaxed atmosphere.
Be sure to bring along your camera to capture the historic Chicago skyline!
On your return to the Wharf, the crew will wish you farewell. When you disembark be sure to stop and view your boarding photo, processed and ready for purchase.
Sightseeing on the Cruise:
Your excursion covers the magnificent lakefront with spectacular views of the city's downtown. No trip to Chicago is complete without a view from the deck of our festive ship. And while you're enjoying all the highlights, you can dine, dance and have a great time, too.
