4 Ideas to Entertain Your Cruise Guests

Posted on April 18, 2019

Go overboard with your next event with these fun ideas to entertain your guests.

1. Learn a thing or two about those views.

Bring a Chicago Architecture Center docent aboard for an abbreviated commentary and mesmerize your guests with interesting facts and stories of the buildings surrounding them. Great way to treat your guests to our award-winning Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruise aboard Chicago's First Lady with the added comfort and enjoyment of delicious food and cocktails. After the tour the docent will hop off as your guests continue their networking on the River and Lake.



2. Host a mini concert.

There's live music...and then there's this. Bring your event music from the background to the forefront with a mini concert on the lake aboard your private floating rooftop. Take it one step further and invite a local blues musician to pay homage to Chicago's roots for a truly epic evening. See how this charter guest did just that.


3. Give away cool stuff.

Plan a raffle to raise money for your organization or charity. Encourage social engagement with a custom event hashtag and draw winners for fun prizes. Or just give away cool stuff. After all, who doesn't love the excitement and anticipation of waiting for their winning number to be called? Learn more about this annual cruiser who raised $20,000 for their cause.


4. Wines, beer and cider...oh my!

Show your guests you care with our upgraded wine or beer packages. Beer lovers will enjoy several refreshing selections from local brewery Revolution Brewing and crisp sips from local cidery Right Bee Cider. Wine lovers will appreciate their choice of thoughtfully selected summer wines. For the ultimate beer and wine connoisseurs, turn the event into a tasting complete with paired bites from any one of our catering partners.
