Editorial review from Citysearch 8/10/2012

My experiance on the Odyssey was Unforgetable! And 1000% Amazing. My fiance(boyfriend at the time) planned a dinner cruise for us and it was unbelivable! THE staff, crew, Manager were all impecable. They knew my fiance was going to propose and made it very special for us. But the waitress her name is MAY she was incrediable, the ship was full and she had her tables full but she treated us like we were her ONLY guest, it wasnt like i had to say ""wheres my waitress cause she was on top of it"" The food, lord how do i describe that food!!!! in one word HEAVEN! When we got on the ship we were greated by the staff asking to take our picture the hostess was so curtious and polite. I will never ever FORGET how special they made my PROPOSAL night for me, just 10000000% what ever woman hopes hers will be, they were so supportive and wonderful to help Kevin make that happen! They had set up a table on the observation deck, under spotlights with a beautiful table cloth and rose peatls and i sighn that said""reserved"", so no one would sit there untill my fiance was ready to purpose. When he did our waitress knew and came up and started taking pictures, I actually have pictuers of him proposing to me. Down on one knee and everything. As a female that is very important to me, not many people capture that on camera! After i said ""yes"" May was still the BEST WAITRESS possiable. Insted of us going back down stairs to eat our AMAZING CHOCOLATE CAKE, she said "" ill bring it up here"" which was amazing considering how busy she was but like i said she made us feel like we were her only guest! :) The band was incredable, the singer was right on key plus she had her on style! I love it and cant wait to go back for our 1 year anniversary, THANKYOU MAY ! And to all the incrediable staff that made this girls DREM PROPOSAL COME TRUE, I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A MOVIE !!!!!! more

My wife and I were vacationing in Chicago, considering we have not had an opportunity to really get away together in our 5 years of being married; we were looking forward to the opportunity greatly. more

Best Dining Experience 12/2/2011

I took a friend for her 30th birthday and it was a birthday she will never forget. All the crew members were very polite and the service was excellent. Your glass of what every beverage you prefered was never empty. The food and the entertainment were also excellent. Most importantly was the experience of dining on the crusie ship. I would highly recommend it to anyone for any occasion. We took the Sunday brunch cruise. It was incredible! more

Attentive staff, great cruise, food and entertainment 6/15/2009

We cruised in Chicago on the Odyssey this past weekend. The attentive staff, good food and great entertainment made it a special evening for us. The waters were calm and the views were beautiful. It was topped off with an awesome fireworks display. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and recommend the cruise aboard the Odyssey for a special night out! Pros: Very special event Cons: No drawbacks, everything was perfect more

An awesome way to see the city 11/17/2008

We went on a dinner cruise on the Odyessy were impressed with the entire event. The boat looked great and felt like dining in a nice restaurant within the city. However, the views were better than anywhere in the city. It gives you a completely different perspective of the skyline and when the sun goes down, it is really neat to see the city light up. In addition to the amazing views, the food was great and so was the service. The wait staff took extra care to ensure we had everything we needed. The live band and was also a nice touch. They were a talented, upbeat jazz group that played some fun songs. Overall we had a great time on the Odyessy. It's a great option for doing something out of the ordinary and is a great way to view / experience the city. more

Great celebration place for 2 5/19/2007

My husband and I celebrated our 1 yr wedding anniversary here during a Saturday brunch cruise. It was great! All the staff was very friendly. We received complimentary champagne, as did everyone else. The buffet food was pretty good and very plentiful. It was refreshed and available during the entire 2hr cruise so you could eat when you wanted as many times as you wanted. Pros: Ambience, beautiful ship, great for celebrating something Cons: Tables very close together more

not worth it.... 8/16/2006

I loved the food and dancing and views. But it was nothing special if your looking to go on a cruise that does include the good food and dancing and city views the odessy is not the only one that offers these pluses. Just look at Navy Pier at all the different selections that offer the same things but they're easier to get into and will save you a buck or two! more

Was perfect for our special annniversary! 3/18/2005

I did lots of research looking for a unique place to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. Odyssey really delivered for me! The views of the city skyline from the water were spectacular. The ship itself is impressive and elegant. Our dinner was excellent. The staff treated my wife and me wonderfully. Pros: Awesome views, Unique, Elegant Cons: Not inexpensive more

Beautiful at night 6/2/2002

I really like this cruise ship on summer nights. The food is excellent and so is the dessert selection. There is live entertainment, usually a jazz band. I like to bring my drink to the top deck. Pricey, but once or twice a year is worth it. Cons: self-park lot $$ more
