My husband and I were celebrating our 40th Anniversary. We had such a wonderful time. From the service to the food to the DJ, the beautiful weather and fireworks, it was a celebration we will never forget. Without the DJ knowing, the first song he played was “ This guys in love with you” which was the song that was playing when my husband first told me he loved me. That was so special as we danced the night away! :) Rose Delgado Fort Worth, TX

Great cruise

Great cruise with good dinner and amazing fireworks show. Disappointed the communications did not name the boat so we went from boat to boat on Navy Pier until we found the right one.

The bat was not staffed week but the food was great, dj rocked

It was really special, however, the service was very poor.

Wonderful night

Wish the cruise went out alittle further on Lake Michigan
