Well this one won't take you to the Bahamas, but it's a very pleasant escape! Take a brunch cruise, dinner cruise, afternoon cocktail cruise, midnight cruise, or even a blues cruise! They fit all different schedules and budgets. It's a nice way to splurge without taking time off from work or dropping a load of money. It's also a nice excuse to go to Navy Pier and wander around for a while before or after the cruise. Tourists will love seeing the city this way, and locals will be able to reaffirm that Chicago's a great place to live.
