All Aboard! Stacy and I were lucky enough to be invited by Entertainment Cruises Chicago for a night with our sisters aboard the Odyssey. Entertainment Cruises owns a fleet of ships: Odyssey Cruises, Spirit of Chicago, Mystic Blue, Seadog and Elite which all depart from the beautiful Navy Pier. Navy Pier is a pier along Lake Michigan in Chicago filled with shops, restaurants, museums, family attractions and of course where you can board The Odyssey!
It was a brisk night, but we were dressed up and ready to board the Odyssey for our Sunday night cruise! We were taken to our beautiful table that was decorated with the perfect fall tablescape, a bottle of champagne and a sign welcoming us and our guests! Everyone we met on the cruise and that attended to us was so kind! We would love to give our servers Zayra and Davisha a special shoutout they were fabulous!
We started the night with a complimentary glass of Champagne before we popped open another complimentary bottle at our table! Then of course onto the most important part of the night, the meal. You can choose from a three course Prix Fixe menu and your options include:

The Maple & Mustard Glazed Chicken Breast was a table favorite! The cookies they made for us were SO cute and delicious! After We spent a majority of our night on the Saphire deck where there was dinner and dancing. On the Amethyst Deck, they were showing the classic movie Casablanca which was another Romantic moment for a couple to share. We received an invite to the Bridge of the ship after dinner. This is where the Captain sits! It was cool to see his view of the lake. We got to ask him a couple of questions about the ship and his background! After visiting with the Captain, we headed to the upper deck. The cold wind was whipping against our faces, but it didn’t stop us from taking in the best view of the city even if it was only for a couple minutes!
This night was a great way to kick off the Holidays and spend time with our sisters! A night out on the Odyssey would be a perfect way to Celebrate being a Newlywed, an Anniversary, a Birthday, Holiday or Company Party! Want to experience a fun night out on the water? Check out their website here! Entertainment Cruises not only sets sail in Chicago, but they also have day and evening cruises, excursions and private charters in 11 other cities!
I have been on the Odyssey a couple of times and this by far was the best experience! We had so much fun taking over their Instagram Stories and thoroughly enjoyed our night out with our sisters! We will definitely be back, thank you so much again to Entertainment Cruises for having us and our guests!
