We have a lot of jokes in our family, one is my husband is a pirate at heart so when I saw this tour boat in the V&A harbor we had to do it. The boat is totally campy but it would be a lot...More

A friend and I took the Jolly Roger Cruise as part of the iVenture card. Service at the main desk was appalling: limited communication; rudeness rather than language differences. Late start to tour. Service aboard the boat was adequate. Champagne was of poor quality (FlippenNice)...More

My wife and I booked on another charter for a sunset champagne cruise. We have been seeing the Jolly Roger motoring around the waterfront over the time of our vacation. It always seems like it’s in a hurry to go somewhere. Last evening, March 3,...More

The most stupid activity in Cancun. It is noise polution for the whole bay. Insipid and meaningless.

We were so disappointed with the supposed Pirate Ship. Nothing but the design of the ship was about Pirates. The crew were not dressed as pirates and all one does is sit on the boat, leave the harbour and return. When we first left, the...More

First, it's just a 1-hour cruise - there's no pirate show for kids or anything like that on board - and it's expensive compared to other cruises (R175 for adults, R85 for kids). We thought the crew would act like pirates or something, but they...More

I seriously underestimated this cruise. We booked a different boat but it was cancelled due to high winds at the last minute so by chance we were transferred to the Jolly Roger. It was awesome! Great atmosphere, great staff, great champagne, great tunes, unbeatable sunset....More

We attended a birthday party on the boat and had a great time. The staff where awesome and kept the kids entertained all the time. The sail into Table bay was excellent, as there was a bit of swell, which had everybody hanging on, but...More

We came all the way to the V and A for a boat ride and the kids were so excited, but once on board (and had paid) were told that there was not enough power to preform the pirate show. Surly good actors don't need...More

Nice little cruise, although we had expected better views. Beware of the face painting - our daughter got a rash from it (and never had problems with face painting before)
