Nice view of the city!

The cruise was very pleasant. Very nice, clean ship. The food was very good and so was the service. I bought the ticket online and the instructions of how to redeem tickets were wrong. It said to go to “Tiny Tavern” to redeem; these people knew nothing about it ( and have nothing to do with it). We were sent by the Navy Pier security people back and forth the pier until we could find the ship and the kiosk next to it to redeem the tickets.

Disappointed

Appearance of the ship was satisfactory, Buffett food was not good nor was the selection, we did go during COVID19 so that may have added to the low vibes on board but all around overpriced and very disappointing.

This was the worst experience I’ve ever had dealing with boat cruises they wouldn’t allow me to board the ship.

This was the worst experience they wouldn’t allow me and my lady friend board the ship because I had my ticket on my phone and said I needed a paper ticket why have the option to download your ticket if you can’t use it.

We were looking for something special to do for our 1st Anniversary. The dinner cruise was perfect! The food was awesome, the staff was friendly and helpful. The cruise was beautiful and romantic. The DJ was the bomb! His music selection was perfect for any occasion. We had a ball. Will definitely do this again! Thanks

A few days prior to this event, we were notified by text that the Spirit was canceled due to low attendance. After calling the number supplied, we rebooked on the Odyssey and offered a Platinum Open Bar package for our inconvenience. I highly recommend a dinner cruise when in Chicago.
