Winter Date Night Aboard The Odyssey Chicago

Chicago in the winter time can be brutal and very cold. That shouldn’t stop you from going on a date night though. Parents need date nights, and my husband and I are no different.

We like to go on a date night at least a few times a month if time and sitters permit. We had the amazing opportunity this past weekend to sail on the Odyssey Chicago!

I love the Entertainment Cruises at Navy Pier Chicago. I’ve been on the Odyssey once before last year, and I had an amazing time! I knew this time would be no different. My husband had never been aboard the Odyssey Chicago, so I was super excited for him!

The Odyssey has a very upscale atmosphere. You can sit back and relax while you enjoy the beautiful Chicago Skyline! I think the Odyssey cruise is the perfect date night in Chicago!! Here are a few reasons why:

The Food is AMAZING!

The dinner menu was amazing! You have the option to pick your three-course meal. I started off with the Lobster soup, followed by the Turkey Dinner with mashed potatoes, green beans followed by dessert, Yumm-O!

The atmosphere is great!

We attended the Holiday Cruise and it was just perfect. From the moment you step on the staff is amazing and very attentive. Our waiter was amazing, he checked on us all night and even took a photo for us at the end of our cruise!

The Skyline View is like no other!

Yes, even in the winter. The breathtaking views on board the boat are just super romantic. Even though it was a little cold the night of our cruise, we wanted to see the view and catch a little kiss under the romantic skyline of Chicago.

You will Dance

Yes, you will dance off the food you just ate. The DJ aboard the cruise played some great songs! I love the selection of music that was played. My husband and I brought our dancing shoes because we were on the dance floor all night!

You can Dress to IMPRESS

Who doesn’t love to dress up once in a while? I know this girl does, especially on date night with my husband! This cruise gave me an opportunity to dress up and have an amazing night on the town with my love.

So now that you know that you can have an amazing winter date night in Chicago, what are you waiting on? Book your cruise onboard the Odyssey Chicago today to experience all it has to offer. Trust me you won’t be disappointed!

Thank you, Odyssey and Entertainment Cruises Chicago for having us aboard for an amazing date night!

    It’s a shame to say, but I’ve never booked a dinner on the Odyssey even though I’d been meaning to for years. I’ll have to make this a priority in 2018 for sure.

    Looks like you two had fun. I’m in Minneapolis and it’s ridiculously cold out so we’re staying in.

    This looks great! I understand the cold, since I live in Cleveland! I need to check to see if we have any dinner cruises! My husband and I would love something like this! You looked beautiful!

    I LOVE THE ODYSSEY! We’ve gone for birthday, anniversary and holiday party dinners. The vessel is large enough for you to still feel a sense of intimacy when you’re aboard. I’m glad you got out for a date night!

    You’re brave for wearing that dress because I know firsthand just how cold winters get here and brutal is an understatement. This looks like a great date option that I’ll have to check out though!

    That looks like a lot of fun! I haven’t been on a dinner cruise with the hubby in years. Maybe it is time to revisit that as a date night.

    I absolutely love your lip color. We have an Odyssey here and I’ve never been on it. Babe and I need to check it out for a date night.
