I really enjoyed this cruise. I would recommend it for any birthday, anniversary or special occasion. The staff was professional yet very friendly. They made my mom feel special. Thank you!

With goldstar the price was right, but I would not have been happy paying full price. Mystic Blue is a great special event experience, and we went for a birthday. You are paying for the boat and the wonderful views of the city, and not so much for...continued

This was a wonderful cruise, with great food and great service. The goldstar price really saved us a lot of money, too. I would highly recommend this and would do it again in the future.

We arrived at the suggested time and every seat and table were taken. It appeared that they over-booked the cruise. We had to stand or sit on chairs while we tried to eat our food. It was crowded. The views of the city and fireworks were good....continued

We originally were booked on the Mystic Blue, but they shifted us over to the Spirit of Chicago which was just fine with us. Good food, wonderful service.

very attentive wait staff. food so-so. Inside dining room too cold. Outside fireworks were awesome--should be more chairs on top deck. Overall very relaxing and enjoyable--nice jazz outside was cool.

Boarding was on time, your waiter takes you to your assigned tables. The food was buffet style and ready once we seated. Drinks are not included in the meal, only hot/cold tea, coffee and water. It was a mixed crowd, some families, girls night...continued

Great seats near the buffet and dance floor. Food was tasty and the DJ made the event fun and interactive (if a bit cheesy with some of the music). Drinks were $10...not too bad for something like this. Beautiful skyline views.
