The Odyssey has regular departures from the south side of Navy Pier, which make its two-and three-hour cruises popular for a meal in an atypical setting. The many windows of this sleek and elegant multi-floored ship afford beautiful views of the city, which are especially captivating at night. Aside from the regular brunch, lunch, dinner and midnight cruises, the Odyssey is very popular for special events, and is often reserved for business meetings, graduations, weddings and similar functions. The ticket prices, which vary with time and day of the week, include the meal and entertainment. Cocktails can be purchased on board.
