We had a group of people celebrating 2 of our groups birthday and it was a wonderful fun dinner cruise for everyone, we had a private room for our group. Food was great and it was beautiful day to enjoy the Chicago skyline.

After several years of my suggesting to our HR department for a company outing, they finally agreed to splurge for a 3-hour cruise on the Mystic Blue. We had the entire boat to ourselves (approximately 100 people). We enjoyed a decent buffet and 2 bars...More
