We had a great time! So much fun! The scenery was beautiful. Pirate show was a lot of fun! The captain and first mate were friendly. It was fun for all ages.

This was a blast! The staff was great, the boat ride was very fun, and the pirates were awesome! The food, as most reviews say, was less than impressive. Keep in mind the food is more of a "perk" than the reason you go on this cruise. Honestly, I would plan on eating before or after the cruise and just... More

I loved the show it made my vacation! My not even a year old daughter loved the show. I will be coming back next year to see it again.

We had such a relaxing fun time!! This is not just for little kids. We had 2, 20+ kids with us and they loved it! The boat ride alone is relaxing and fun, the pirates are great, too! Do not expect a fancy sit down dinner-this is casual. It is finger food and find a seat! Drinks are strong and... More

We went on the pirate show cruise (the one hour), not the dinner show cruise. Was entertaining - staff were nice, I felt safe on the boat, felt that everyone was very organized and knew what they were doing. The pirates were entertaining - unsure if I'd pay double for the dinner cruise - as "fun" as it was, I'm... More

Thanks for the review. By the way the dinner cruise is two hours (one hour longer) so, it is essentially the same price which also includes food. More

Great ambience, good food, wonderful scenery, and an enjoyable hijacking by pirates add up to an excellent value. We'll be back!

For any Topsail Island visitors (especially those with children) who may be unsure of what to do when not enjoying the beach, taking a dinner & pirate show cruise on The Belle of Topsail should be on the top of your list! Not only is the Captain (David Luther) very experienced and professional, but his entire crew, including his wife,... More

Our children, ages 10 and 12, had a blast on this dinner cruise. They would probably give it a 5. We thought the food was decent and plentiful but were disappointed we had to pay for beverages. The water cannons only worked on one side, but the crew made it so that the kids always needed to fire from that... More
