Chicago's Best Cruise Experience

The great wait staff and friendly atmosphere. The food and the music was good as well which made an enjoyable experience.

Ticket booths were closed or closing when we tried to get our pre-tickets in order to board.
Terry_S
, May 2022
Beautiful boat ride and 10-15 helpers along the way were good. However, it was difficult to get our tickets( not in the system after we found the ticket booth) but I had proof and just barely got on. No good communication once you arrive at the pier in order to retrieve your tickets. Most booths were closed or only opened for a few minutes(appeared the were secretly opening and closing for only a few minutes at a time ). Maybe better to go down to the pier the same day and order your tickets. However, once we got on the boat everyone was kind and helpful I was escorting a handicap man in a wheelchair.

Poor experience
Caroline_D
, May 2021
The outside of the boat looks dirty, the dj was horrible and waited until the last minute to play music. My dessert was hard and dry which was a chocolate cake. This was my second time on this boat and honestly it has changed for the worse. Highly disappointed.

Third Party is not the way to go
Derek_H
, May 2021
Booking this was a nightmare through Viator. First we paid $70 over the retail price booking through Viator. When we tried to confirm our tickets the Entertainment Cruise company didn’t have our booking no. And it was just a process that was not enjoyable. Basically just book through the actual Entertainment Cruises company. It’s cheaper and more efficient

Terrible experience! We were very much looking forward to this relaxing cruise after a red eye flight from the west coast...but we were unable to actually take it due to extremely poor information from the tour provider. Wrong address for the departure and wrong sailing time boat left an hour before we were told to be there! listed on the printer tour details combined to make the event a no-go for us. No one was in the kiosk on dock side to provide support front-line phone representative tried to help by offering us another sailing time but the supervisor behind the scenes who never took the time to actually come on the phone to talk to us was terribly inflexible and unable to work to offer a resolution/reservation that fit our schedule. We have used Viator-curated tours in many cities in the US, Europe and Australia and know how to read the tour details and make it to departure points on time. This missed event was due to poor management and terrible customer service from what I would call a lackluster at best organization. Take my advice and spend your money elsewhere - Chicago has so many wonderful things to do other than this tour!

From beginning to end the Odyssey crew was spectacular. I’m from Chicago & I’ve been on other boats before. This one definitely set the bar high. I was extremely pleased with the food and service we received.

It was a very nice experience. The staff was helpful and attentive and very friendly. The food was just OK but that's not surprising seeing as how they are feeding the number of people they do. I would recommend it to someone who is celebrating a special occasion, or just wants to see the skyline from a different point of view.

Great! Even though the water was a little choppy we really enjoyed the food, the music and most of all the cheerful and friend attitude of all the staff. I will surely recommend this trip to others. I would take it again, but next time I would take the evening one, just to be able to see the skyline at night.

Amazing to us was that the food was fantastic. The lobster bisque was the best I have ever had. the cruise was wonderful. I took my Mom who is in her nineties and she loved it all. The view of Chicago was awesome and the time on the lake was the perfect amount of time, not too long and not too short. Very attentive staff.
