We have traveled several times on the Badger and have always enjoyed our trip. There is quite a bit to do during your trip such as bingo, movie theatre, gift shop, or just sit and take in the view. If it is warm enough it is wonderful out on one of the decks. The food is reasonably priced and the usual fare. (if you wait till you are close to your destination they mark any remaining food down)
The staff is always friendly and helpful. It is amazing how many cars, etc, that boat can hold, fun to watch! It is a little pricey but the convenience of not needing to drive through Chicago or the U.P. is worth it for us. You can just relax for a few hours!
