    Enhance Your Evening With These Recommended Vendors

    Our Recommendations

    Chicago's First Lady Cruises has long-term relationships with these excellent vendors as added options for your special private party cruise aboard our fleet. You don’t need to use these specialists to enhance your Chicago dinner cruise or private corporate event; however, we are familiar with their work and can recommend their services.

    Make part of your private party cruise a Chicago architecture tour when you add the insight of a certified volunteer docent of the Chicago Architecture Center to your evening for an additional donation.
