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!

Most everything said previously by everyone else is true. The service, atmosphere, ambience, etc. is great.
We were attending a 20th anniversary party and the ""singer"" who announced the special occasions really screwed up my party's announcement. Namely, she mentioned the wife's name but not the husband's.
When informed about it, the ""singer"" didn't apologize so much as blame it on ""the person who wrote the announcements"".
A lot of money was paid for a ruined evening.
Pros: Most of the staff was attentive, good food & drink, atmosphere, cleanliness
Cons: Expensive, close tables, Lousy Band.

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!

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.

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.
The views of the city were great, the ship was very clean and nicely decorated. I would highly recommend it for a celebration for 2. Only not so great thing, was the tables were very close together. But on a beautiful day, you'll probably be outside enjoying the observation deck most of the time anyway. We definately got our money's worth!
P.S Skip the $25 window seat option (there are great views from every seat and you'll be outside most of the time anyway). Skip the $20 photo, bring your own camera, plenty of people offered to take our picture.

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!

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.
