The food, views and service were excellent! Well worth the money, and lots of really good pictures of Chicago at night.

Reviewed by: C J S, October 2016

Staff were amazing - for a person on their own they made me feel very special and welcoming. Food was exceptional and a variety which would cater for all tastes. Wine list was extensive. A thoroughly good evening with good dance music even on my own I got up with another couple and jived. Loved the lights of Chicago as the cruise moved around.
