I attended a wedding reception aboard this boat. The food was very good, but not exceptional. The staff more than friendly and accommodating. The restrooms were very clean. The ride itself was quite smooth.

Beautiful cruise along the skyline. Drinks were good (they were included in our package). Food was mediocre at best, buffet with no standouts. Even dessert was a disappointment

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
