I liked it, but it is NOT worth the full retail price. So if your thinking of doing it, go with Goldstar...I think at this price (50% off) then its great. The food was good too...Fondue for dessert. I dont know what people are complaining...continued

More Information


See the dinner buffet menu (menus subject to change).

Attire: For evening cruises, recommended attire is business casual to dressy. For men, recommended attire includes slacks and a polo or button-down shirt. For women, nice slacks, capri pants or a sundress are recommended. Spirit discourages collarless T-shirts, jeans, shorts or sneakers. Afternoon cruises are generally more relaxed, and casual attire is fine.

Entertainment: Spirit of Chicago allows you to experience a completely festive atmosphere at your leisure. Step aboard and taste our delicious buffet dining. Relax on our festive climate-controlled decks, or take a stroll to our spacious observation deck. Sip from a refreshing cocktail and take in the amazing views from the water.
