Great Lakes cruises from Chicago often center around one of a small fleet of luxury yachts operated by Entertainment Cruises, Inc, which calls itself the “largest harbor cruise company in America.”

The Great Lakes ships Spirit of Chicago and Odyssey are parts of this fleet and so is the ship Mystic Blue. The name Mystic Blue is pretty catchy, and the cruise line bills this as a “hip and cool cruising experience”. In other words, cruises on Mystic Blue are centered around energy, youth, and fun.

Like the other ships operated by this cruise line, Mystic Blue offers lunch and dinner cruises. Entertainment is provided by a live DJ and there is plenty of room on the dance floor. The Blue After-Dark cruises cost only $34.90 per person (plus tax and fees), making this a inexpensive night out. The After-Dark cruises board at 12:15 am and cruises last until 2:30 am. Dancing and DJ’s entertain the entire time and there are cocktails and hors d’oeuvres available.

Dinner cruises are also available and appear to range between $55 and $60 per person. They include live entertainment and DJ’s. These dinner cruises board at 6:00 pm and cruise between 6:30 and 8:30.

Like the other ships operating from Chicago, Mystic Blue operates all year long, providing Great Lakes cruises even at New Years. This year, Mystic Blue will be celebrating New Year’s Eve with a Fireworks Dinner Cruise. This trip will offer a premium bar package, champagne toast at midnight, and free boarding photo. As always there will be food, fun and music. The trip ends with a half-hour party dockside. The cruise boards at 8:30 and cruises from 9:30 to 12:30 with the dockside party lasting until 1:00. Weather permitting there will also be fireworks marking the evening. The price for this cruise is higher than the other Mystic Blue cruises and runs $149.90 per person. This is actually a decent price when you consider the bar package, the dinner buffet, and the additional time both on the water and at the dockside party.

Like the other ships from this cruise line, Mystic Blue is offering a Sweetest Day cruise with views of the Sweetest Day fireworks, treats, champagne and DJ entertainment.

Mystic Blue itself is described as being redecorated with a blue and silver interior and a lounge-like atmosphere. The ship was built in 2003 at a reported cost of $4.5 million dollars and is 160 feet long. With a reported passenger capacity of 500, Mystic Blue still falls under the heading of small ship cruises.

Like the other ships operated by Entertainment Cruises, Inc, the Mystic Blue is tailored for a specific group of passengers. Young, hip people who enjoy good music, good fun, and a unique atmosphere should really enjoy the Great Lakes cruises on this luxury yacht.
