Lots of fun for the family. My kids loved it! They become pirates in training. Water gun fights, sword fights, treasure hunt and dancing. Definitely recommended!

My daughter, two grandsons and I took the pirate ship cruise on Sunday at 11:30. I was so impressed with the crew on the cruise. They entertained everyone, but especially the children, the entire time. It was a very enjoyable time!

This cruise is a must if you're in the area! I took a 7 year old and a 12 year old (who is normally too cool for this kind of stuff) and they both really got into it and had an amazing time.

If you have younger children this is an amazing cruise to go on. Staff was wonderful and they kept the children entertained the whole night. Sword fights, water gun fights, fake mustaches and tattoos. Ended the night with fireworks.
