I agree with a previous review that this is for kids that are a little more energetic and willing to participate. While there were some shy kids on the ship, who the crew didn't really force to join them, to get the mot out of it, your kids need to be willing to partake of the silly games and songs. By far the best were the water cannons to "get the evil pirate". I liked that this was fun for all ages and was more "happy pirate" then "scary pirate".
The only thing that bothered me was that at the end they asked for tips and then stand there with their hat out. It would be fine to write on the information that tips are accepted, but to tell passangers to give them extra money for doing that thing we already paid ticket prices for seemed greedy and akward.
