Spirit of Chicago has it all: sightseeing, dining and dancing. Cruising year-round from Chicago’s Navy Pier, Spirit offers lunch, dinner, Lake-Breeze Lounge and holiday cruises, plus specialty themed cruises to mix things up. Cruise the lakefront on a ship designed for having fun from start to finish.

Explore three climate-controlled interior decks with panoramic windows or come topside for our open-air rooftop deck. Our onboard DJ, decked out dance floors and full-service bars keep the party going. No experience on land compares to the energy aboard Spirit of Chicago!
