The cruise was a great time. We needed the diversion from some stressful home repairs and it was well organized, relaxing and provided a little of everything in terms of entertainment. The food was very good and prepared for us to eat as soon as...continued

The Spirit was canceled on Aug 15 and Goldstar upgraded us to the Odyssey. The evening was perfect and my husband and I really enjoyed the entire evening. Food was great. Just thought the bartending service was slow.....

Basically a cruise along the skyline... Food selection wasn't very good. Would've been better if the DJ + music weren't always playing.

Food was good. Service was very good. Would have enjoyed a better DJ. He needs to work the crowd more.

I spent my birthday on the cruise; I had a good time. The food was plentiful, though a bit overcooked, but I kind of expected that due to the reviews posted earlier on this site. The DJ took great care to make special mention of EVERYONE...continued

Mediocre food (although the chocolate fondue was delicious). The staff aren't exactly broadway-bound, but the DJ was pretty good and people had a really good time. I loved the views of the city from the water.

This would definitely not be worth...continued

We have a really fun time on the ship, but were wishing it was Saturday night instead of Sunday. Oh, well.....food was pretty good. Really liked the couscous salad. Good idea to use your servers for entertainment and the dancing was fun. Thanks...continued

My wife and I had a great time. The view was amazing, and the food was great, but the music was meh.. and no one really wanted to dance. Also, you're told to dress up, but many people were dressed casualy. All in all it was a positive...continued

The food and service was good. Was disappointed that the ship only went in 3 circles on the north side of Navy Pier. It never went past the barriers out onto the lake and it would of been nicer going up and down the coast instead of looking at...continued

This was an awesome anniversary date. Goldstar made it affordable. The food was great, the music was good. My only complaint is that the dancefloor is too small.

We did the Sunday brunch on the Spirit of Chicago. It was okay. The food tasted alright (some was good, some was bad), but wasn't very warm, and the selection was pretty poor: omelets (good), bacon (soggy), salad, alfredo (VERY good), some...continued

We enjoyed the setting and the crew, however, the food left a lot to be desired. We expected buffet-style food, but the only thing good was the fresh cut-up fruit.
