We had a blast on this ship. We had kids in every age range and all of them had something to do. The staff was awesome. I would go again for sure.

It seemed all the children had a blast. The pirate guys did a great job. My only complaint is that it was overbooked and felt a little cramped.

Noisy, water guns, limited drink selection, it's fine if you're going with your kids but otherwise you have to hide on the upper deck to avoid the mayhem. No comfortable seats, either.

We took the pirate ship cruise with my daughter, her husband, and three grandchildren. The "pirates" on board took really good care of all of the "little pirates". The kids (ages 7, 5, and 3) had a great time shooting everyone with the pirate water pistols. A pirate named Scruggs told a pirate story that kept the children's attention for... More

My family and I had a wonderful time! Captain Arnold, First Mate Scraps, Barnical Ben, and Rowboat Red ensure that you have a fun safe time from leaving the dock to your return. While you're out to sea, the stories and activities for the kids are awesome! Be prepared to be sprayed by your kids and others! The joy on... More

my 7 year old son and 3 year old daughter loved it!! they thought they were real pirates from the beginning. The crew, Mark and Colin, were very entertaining for both the children and adults. The price was very reasonable for a 2 hour show and adults beverages plus we got to see several dolphins in the area. My children... More

A fun trip especially if you have kids. The crew tells fun stories and are great with the kids. Squirt gun battles abound. We didn't have any kids with us but still had a great time on the cruise checking out the surroundings. I was very impressed with the crews attention to safety from the point of boarding to doing...

Great fun for kids and adults alike. The crew keeps it lively so even the little ones aren't bored. Have a great time and let your inner pirate out.

The crew was the best! We went on this cruise with our 5 year old twins and they had a blast and were thoroughly entertained the entire trip by the crew. Although I think my son entertained them for a good part part of the trip with the water fight! The price was very reasonable considering it included free all... More
