    Set sail on Sunday afternoon aboard one of the most impressive ships docked at Navy Pier: The Odyssey. The Chicago Gourmet Brunch Cruise is the perfect way to add a touch of class and relaxation to your weekend, in the good company of family and friends.

    Whether you're visiting this iconic metropolis or call the Windy City home, this outing is one of the best things to do in Chicago when it comes to sightseeing. Step aboard the majestic ship and let the views of the city take your breath away! With numerous climate-controlled decks and a rooftop lounge, opportunity abounds to marvel at the skyscraper-infused horizon as you dine, dance, enjoy a drink, and relax.

    This is a brunch in Chicago you don't want to miss! Delight in breakfast and lunch favorites, prepared onboard by top chefs. Made fresh and with seasonal ingredients, the Gourmet Brunch Cruise's menu is subject to change, but typically includes delicious items like:

    • Assorted fruit
    • Croissants, muffins, bagels
    • Smoked bacon and maple sausage
    • Potatoes
    • Frittatas and eggs
    • Build-your-own waffle station
    • Salads
    • Salmon or chicken options
    • Hand-carved strip loin
    • Cauliflower and tomato gratin

    Save room for dessert because a table full of treats awaits your indulgence! Satisfy a sweet tooth with mini pastry cups, cakes and seasonal fruits. Or top off your Chicago brunch with a stop by one of the Odyssey's cash bars, to relax with a beer, wine, mimosa, Bloody Mary, or favorite cocktail.

    The ship's onboard DJ entertainment presents the perfect serenade as you glide across the Chicago waterfront on this 2-hour cruise. Enjoy subtle background music as you dine, providing the perfect soundtrack to the beautiful city scenery. When you're ready to shake things up a bit, head to one of the dance floors to cut a rug to a number of top hits. Request a favorite song or steal a dance with your favorite cruise guest. And rock the Chicago Gourmet Brunch Cruise all the way back to the Navy Pier dock!

    Overall good experience except I upgraded to the campaign brunch and the cruise said that they don't offer that package. Thankfully after pestering the manager we got campaign, but the manger was pretty obviously annoyed and rude. Other than that, food was good and views were great.

    Hi there Kendra, Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know!  Recently, our partners have updated their cruises, and it seems that the cruise you were on was one of the first to transition. We are sorry that there was a difficulty in getting the champagne. So happy that despite the trouble, you were able to enjoy your bubbly and your time on the water!  Hooray! Very excited that the food was delicious, and the views stellar!  We have placed a $25.00 credit in your Cloud 9 Living account for future use. We look forward to having you out on another Cloud 9 Living experience soon!  Very Best, Sophia
    Excellent
    It was a beautiful day. The food was excellent and the staff was exceptional, ensuring that we had a wonderful experience.
    It was a good time, but a little confusing since it was called a "champagne brunch" and no one was served champagne upon boarding or received any champagne complimentary (until we asked at the end and the server was kind enough to bring us some). The cocktail, wine and beer, as one would guess were pretty outrageous ($18 for a standard bloody mary), but the food was decent and overall we had a nice time sitting on the observation deck for most of the cruise.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi there Shaina,  Thanks so much sharing! Guests should certainly receive a glass of champagne when boarding. We understand that the crew may have been filling glasses or assisting other guests, and weren't able to provide the champagne upon boarding. Of course, $18.00 is a steep price, even for New York City! There are however, other drink options including wine and beer, for around $6-10. We do understand that expectations were not met, and are truly so sorry.  We are so happy that despite the champagne delay, you were able to take in the city's breathtaking views, enjoy tasty food, and had a good time overall! We have gone ahead and placed a value of $30.00 into your account for future use. Looking forward to getting you out on the water again soon!  Very Best,  Sophia
    Service was great, food was great! Really enjoyed our cruise

    I'm so glad to hear you all had a wonderful time. I'm sure it was a great birthday celebration!  Thanks for your time. Best, Brooke
    The cruise was good but your instructions related to dress for men is way off base. There was not a sport coat in sight----obviously, the cruise officials do not police their own policies ----- we saw tee shirts, shorts, etc. Revise your instructions so that you do not inconvenience guests. Business Casual does not include sport coats for men!
    It was really fun and classy! Received it as a gift, so I'm not sure about the cost, but my wife and I really enjoyed it!
