Get ready to jingle all the way on Saturday, December 16th, as the Anita Dee II transforms into a festive paradise for the Santa’s Fireworks Cocktail Cruise! is pulling out all the stops for a holiday celebration you won’t want to miss.

A Night of Enchantment:

Located at Burnham Harbor (1559 South Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605), the Anita Dee II is the place to be from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm CST. Picture this: dazzling views of Chicago’s skyline, iconic landmarks, and the harbor from the magnificent Lake Michigan.

Decked Out for Fun On Santa’s Cocktail Cruise

This 3-story luxury yacht is not your average party venue. With two indoor, climate-controlled decks and a third open-air deck, it’s ready to host a night of holiday revelry. Dance the night away with Chicago’s hottest DJ providing the soundtrack for a memorable evening.


Cheers to Good Times: What’s a party without drinks? The fully stocked bars onboard are primed and ready to serve up your favorite beverages. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic cocktail or a festive concoction, the libations will be flowing.

Dress to Impress, or Don’t Dress at All

Okay, maybe not the latter, but there’s a semi-formal dress code in effect. Leave the athletic wear and hats behind, and show up in your holiday best. It’s a celebration, after all!


Time to Board the Fun Train: Boarding begins 45 minutes before the cruise sets sail, and trust us, you don’t want to miss the boat—literally. Gates close 10 minutes before departure, and latecomers might find themselves at the end of the standby line. No refunds for fashionably late entrances, folks!

Safety First: COVID protocols are in play, so grab that festive face mask for the indoor portions of the boat. And just a heads up, the cruise is strictly for adults (21+), so leave the kiddos at home.


Parking and Logistics Drama: Our advice? Skip the headache of parking and opt for public transportation or a trusty rideshare. But if you must drive, check out the map for parking options—it’s like a treasure hunt, but with parking spaces.

Questions, Anyone?: Got burning questions? Check out the FAQs for all the deets. From dress code dilemmas to whether you can bring your grandma’s fruitcake, we’ve got you covered.


Map Your Course to Burnham Harbor: If you’re wondering where the Anita Dee II is hiding, it’s at Burnham Harbor. Follow the provided driving or drop-off instructions, and you’ll be there in no time.
