A Spirit dinner cruise is the perfect night out in Chicago, in a magical setting enhanced by the dazzling lights of the city and the lakefront. Enjoy an evening filled to the brim with wonderful cuisine, music, and dancing under a canopy of stars.
What to Expect
This 3-hour dinner cruise is the ultimate Chicago experience! You’ll know you’re in for a special evening the moment you step on board the Spirit’s decks and are escorted to your candlelit table. Order a drink, then feel free to explore the ship while the crew casts off for a fabulous evening along the lakefront.
Your waiter will invite you to the Dinner Buffet, where you can sample a little bit of everything, or just select your favorite fare. Everything is freshly prepared in the ship’s galley and served in the true manner of an ocean-going cruise buffet.
Savor your culinary selections with the accompaniment of perfectly paced dinner music and a never-ending view of Chicago’s breathtaking skyline, seen through the ship’s huge panoramic windows.
Take your drinks topside and relax on the largest outdoor patio deck in the city while Chicago’s magnificent skyline spreads out before you. Then, get your dancing shoes on as the pulsing beat of Spirit’s dance tunes entices you to the dance floor.
Spirit’s dinner cruises spotlight some of the hottest DJs in Chicago. For nearly 2 hours, they’ll spin your favorite tunes and let you rock ‘til you dock.
