City Cruises Fleet: The Perfect Networking Venue

City Cruises Chicago is an exceptional choice to host your networking event, in large part due to the selection of vessels and charters you can choose.

Two options that stand out are the Chicago Elite and Odyssey Lake Michigan.

First in line is the Chicago Elite. This remarkable vessel features two fully enclosed, climate-controlled decks, complemented by an open-air sky deck that treats guests to sweeping panoramic views of Chicago’s breathtaking skyline. You can begin your evening with a delightful dinner experience on the elegant dinner deck and later transition to the cocktail deck to unwind, sip on your favorite drinks, and relish an elevated perspective of Chicago’s stunning cityscape.

For larger gatherings, consider the Odyssey Lake Michigan. This four-level dining vessel boasts three interior climate-controlled dining decks, in addition to a rooftop observation deck. The topaz deck offers an elegant setting with a dance floor and majestic skyline vistas. Meanwhile, the sapphire deck provides a vibrant atmosphere with a bar and dance floor, perfect for those looking to add some rhythm to their evening.
