* Please note: We highly recommend that all guests departing from our Navy Pier locations on July 4 allow extra time to reach Navy Pier and arrive as early as possible. Historically, Navy Pier parking reaches capacity and pedestrian access is limited to those who can provide either a printed email confirmation or hard copy tour tickets in order to receive a wrist band that allows entrance to Navy Pier. Please note that July 4 cruise tickets are non-refundable.
