Why take this tour?

Celebrate a night out in Chicago with dinner, music and sightseeing aboard a two to three hour luxury cruise on Lake Michigan.  Departing from Navy Pier,  the Spirit of Chicago allows you to dine on the water and see the skyline like never before.  Glimpse top Chicago attractions like Navy Pier, Soldier Field and more while you dine on a lavish, all-you-can-eat buffet! See spectacular views of the Chicago skyline and relax on our spacious outdoor decks. 

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.
