There were 8 of us and I tested positive for COVID and I called and was told that I had tested positive for Covid and that they would only be six of us since two of us tested positive for Covid. They said they would contact me via email and here I’m still waiting on that email. When I call them directly at the Shipp, they said that they would refund me, but [Viator] hasn’t even had the courtesy to return my messages


Absolutely amazing everything was beautiful,I'll definitely be doing it again soon the food was delicious 😋


My most memorable experience was planning this dinner cruise for my anniversary getting my boarding tickets and being told that we could not board. We arrived at 7 pm which is on the tickets. When we first arrived at the boat they had just closed the gates. Spoke with the crew member who stated we could not board and he was laughing at us. Spoke with captain of ship before they left and he also stated we could not board. To top it off Viator first said they would refund me money I paid and later sent me an email saying they would not don’t do business with either company Viator or Dynasty ship out of Chicago. Would not recommend.


Amenities were great. Staff was sub par at best. Took us 20 minutes to get a drink after it was ordered. I ended up getting them from the bar.


My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. Even though we had been to Chicago many times we thoroughly enjoyed it! We were so happy we choose the Odyssey because the weather turned grey and rainy and we still loved it. We had wonderful service and the food was excellent! The music was fun for all ages.


I’ve never been on a yacht, so I was looking forward to the experience. To begin when I made our reservation, I notified them that my boyfriend and I are celebrating our birthdays. When we got to our seats, I saw that some tables had happy birthday cards, but not ours. My boyfriend ordered a steak and I ordered the gnocchi, our food was not good. The Dj was simply playing tracks, not necessarily being an actual Dj. The only thing we truly enjoyed were the fireworks! It was very chilly, so next time I know to wear something warmer, but other than that for my first experience, I didn’t enjoy it much and spent a lot on these tickets.


I don't know why companies insist on treating solo travellers as second-class citizens. Just for once, on a scenic cruise FOR WHICH I'VE PAID JUST AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE, it would be nice to be put by a window instead of one in the middle of the floor, on the route the servers walk and the ladies go on the way to the restroom. Just once. Someone traveling solo probably has more need of a view than a couple or a party who are having conversations. My server was lovely (very helpful and personable) and the food was OK, but I don't think I should have had to get up to go and get my own drink when it had been ordered a half hour ago and I'd reminded the server once that I was still waiting. I found it a little irritating to be asked by three separate people if I'd enjoyed my dinner, when on each occasion I told the person that I was still waiting for the dessert (which eventually arrived after the coffee did, so the coffee was cold by the time I got to it). And if you ask for your bill so that you can settle it before the fireworks, and it doesn't come before the fireworks, and you go out to watch the fireworks, you should not then be expected to settle the bill until the fireworks are over and you've come back inside. As it was, I missed a good chunk of the show because I was instead paying my bill. I understand quite a lot of this was probably brought about because of the WiFi problems they were experiencing. Nevertheless, for the price paid, I'd expect a better experience.


The experience was so incredible. Highly recommend the trip. Thank you to the Odyssey and the crew for such and amazing experience.


Dinner so good the crew’s so kind definitely we come back The only complaint I asked to Windows table and never they did something to change my table but everything else is ok 👍🏻


It was our 5th year anniversary I was so excited to go on this dinner cruise unfortunately it became the worst night ever. We were the last to get our 1st dish. So we had missed the fireworks because we were eating while everyone was enjoying fireworks. They totally forgot about us, which is weird because they knew we were there on our Anniversary. It’s like it was done intentionally. Worst experience ever on a day I will never forget. Everyone was so nice. Besides this incident.
