One of the best things about living in Chicago is Lake Michigan. And with this Great Lake, it can feel like vacation all year long, especially if you book a dining or specialty cruise leaving from Navy Pier! From romantic to fun and from Valentine’s Day to St. Patty’s Day, and even the Chinese New Year—there’s something for everyone!
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and a cruise on the lake with your special someone is sure to spell romance.
Spirit of Chicago offers Valentine’s Day cruises with not one, but two Valentine’s Day cruises to choose. Be ready to find Laughs on the Lake – Valentine’s edition on Friday, February 13 where the comedic stylings of Jay Washington, Grace Lush and headliner Dave Helem are sure to tickle your funny bone. Live DJ entertainment, a cash bar, and late-night snacks keep you and your company satisfied. Boarding begins at 8:30 p.m. and the cruise sets out from 9-11p.m. This cruise only costs $29.90 per person and all guests must be 21 or older with a valid ID.

Roses and champagne are just the start of this romantic evening for two.
Valentine’s Day is all about the right setting with that special person. Aboard the Odyssey, fine dining, a Special Valentine’s Day menu and dancing promises to be that perfect setting, with Chicago’s stunning skyline as your backdrop.
