Spirit of Chicago Dinner Cruise

Welcome Aboard
You’ll know you’re in for a special evening the moment you step aboard elegant decks and are escorted to your candlelit table. Many tables are designed for cabaret-style seating with other guests, reminiscent of ocean-going cruises. Order drinks, then feel free to explore the ship while our crew casts off for three fabulous hours along the Lakefront.

Bon Appétit - Your waiter will invite you to our Grande Dinner Buffet, where you can sample a little bit of everything, or just select your favorite fare. Everything is freshly prepared in our shipboard galley and served in the true manner of an ocean-going cruise buffet.

Oh, Beautiful - Savor your culinary selections over perfectly-paced dinner music and a never-ending view of Chicago’s breathtaking skyline seen through our huge panoramic windows. Truly, a sight you won’t soon forget.

Live Entertainment - While you relax over coffee and dessert, Spirit’s Broadway-quality performers will dazzle you with song and dance on the center stage. These exciting entertainers are among the finest “rising stars” in the city, so take a good look. You’re sure to see them on television, stage or film in the near future!

Stroll Under The Stars - After the show, take your drinks topside and relax on the largest outdoor patio deck in the city while Chicago’s magnificent skyline spreads before you in all directions. It’s the perfect pause before the pulsing beat of Spirit’s dance tunes entices you onto the dance floor.

Rock The Boat - Spirit’s dinner cruises spotlight some of the hottest DJs in the city. For nearly two hours, they’ll spin your favorite tunes and let you rock ‘til we dock - literally. The perfect end to the perfect night.
