All Aboard! Santa works overtime on Christmas Eve, so to make sure he is well rested, he kicks back on his 3-story, 140 foot luxury yacht, The Anita Dee II, on Lake Michigan. This holiday season, he invites you and your loved ones to join him for Santa's Yacht Family Cruise! Nothing relaxes Santa more than gazing at the beautiful Chicago skyline while listening to some of his favorite tunes.
