    Dinner cruise
    Jessica_M, Aug 2022
    Fun experience! Food and music were good. Staff was nice. The boat was kinda dirty. On the deck there were spiders and webs everywhere! I expected a little more out of it for the price. I would do it again, maybe a different boat.
    Nice trip, Terrible SERVER.
    John_C, Aug 2022
    The cruise was very nice.,the food was very Good, the music was good.Our server, Tywan, was Terrible! We had to keep asking for service because he was never available. Other servers were very helpful , they accommodated us even though it wasn't their station.. I tipped the other servers for helping us, I even tipped the DJ.I did not tip Tywan because he did nothing to deserve a tip. Except for Tywan, the experience was pleasant.
    Date night!
    LUCILIE_F, Aug 2022
    Perfect for our date night with my husband. Food was good! Table arrangement was acceptable. Music selection was ok. Fireworks was amazing! Staffs were accommodating, but the “bar tender” from the top level doesn’t know how to use the cash register machine, causing a long line of customers, delays of drinks, & we become away far too long from our companions to celebrate, in-short it takes us so much time just to get our drinks! Entrance Ticket. There was confusion on entrance ticket; the QR code from Mobile App & I even printed it… was not accepted & not the official ticket to enter to the cruise, instead… we still need to get the official ticket from the booth before going to the cruise! QR Code was not even asked from the booth or the cruise! What is the use of it, if it was not even use? Useless, Ughh! Dress code & ID. We followed the dress code & brought our ID as instructed online… but they allowed people to get-in without following the dress code; such as short, jeans, flip-flop, haltered shirts, too short skirts/dress which almost their butt creases were out & boobies will fall-out which was frustrating, because we could have wore more comfortable clothes like everyone does with the warm weather 90-100 degrees. Also, from the instructions to bring ID, but they never even checked & never asked for ID!!! Best to update or change their instructions or follow instructions & make it more convenient to everyone. To have a satisfied & happy customers.
    What a time to be alive

    The food the music everything was so amazing the city view at night is so beautiful. The staff was amazing!
    Great cruise!!
    Kristine_K, Aug 2022
    We had an amazing time. Food was fantastic! Service was incredible. Only issue we had was with where the ship was on the pier and you need to stop at the ticket window and get your tickets which isn’t stated anywhere. Would definitely recommend!!

    The food was great, so was the DJ, and staff. Chicago is so beautiful from the lake view, especially at night. I loved the fireworks as well.
    Christine_D, Jul 2022
    Went with a couple gfs for their bday celebration. The buffet was surprisingly tasty. The staff was super friendly and attentive. We had a blast on the dance floor and on the deck watching fireworks! Will def do it again!

    It sucks
    Irvin_R, May 2022
    Nothing nothing nothing they didn’t let me in the boat for getting there at 8;29 to the 8:30 departure waste of money and time and they don’t refund which is ridiculous on why they wouldn’t wait at least five minutes after crooks
    Mass confusion
    Sharon_W, May 2022
    Horrible experience! Purchased tickets in January for daughter's 16th birthday celebration. Get to the boat the day of and we were told our cruise event was transferred to another boat, unbeknownst to the new venue. So much confusion. We were eventually placed at a table in the lower level and told we would love it because it was quiet. It was a senior scene and I have four teenagers. We had to beg to get a table where the action was. We felt like outsiders who had invaded someone's space. If you are going to make these kinds of changes, keep everyone in the loop!

    Spiders everywhere!!! We were not able to go outside at all!! the service was terrible. The food wasn't bad. Very edible with a good variety.
    Beautiful fireworks.

    Celebrating nine years of marriage. We found the fireworks the most memorable experience. My husband and I whispering sweet words of love to each to each other.

    Food was goid, skyline and fireworks amazing as always Drink service ungodly slow Decor is getting shabby , needs some rehab Pleasant helpful staff
    Great experience, poor value
    Michele_P, Jul 2021
    Being out on Lake Michigan and seeing the skyline and enjoying the fireworks was all amazing! Food was buffet-style (not great for just coming out of Covid restrictions) but was kept hot and was super tasty. Service was slow - so the offer of unlimited refills is a bit of a misnomer. How can they refill if they only come around twice in 3 hours? Plus, when we were told our options for drinks, pink lemonade was listed. For 4 people, we got 3 pink lemonades and one of us opted for the Sparkling Watermelon Lemondade that was listed as $5 on the menu. It took us 2 times snagging our server en-route somewhere else before that drink was delivered ("sorry, we only have 1 bartender right now" was the excuse provided). That drink finally arrived about an hour into the actual cruise. When our bill came, we expected it to be $5. However, the pink lemonades (non-alcoholic) were each $3.50. And they were extremely watered-down. Even if we had seen our waitstaff more frequently, none of us actually wanted a refill of the 'sugary' water that was being passed off as lemonade. Would have been a 5 star review at half the price.
