I took the morning cruise from 9-1 which included lunch, rope swing, three snorkeling locations and open bar/drinks. The crew was fun and engaging, the spots to snorkel were amazing including antillas wreck, boca catalina and one other spot. Definitely worth doing the morning cruise for your money

Did the earlier morning jolly pirates cruise. Had a great time. Had a 10 and 12-year-old with us. Loved the rope swing! Highlight of the day. Lunch was delicious, Ribs and chicken plus side dishes. Would definitely book this again next time we are in Aruba.

We went on the morning 9AM-1PM cruise and had an awesome time. If you are able to book this ahead of time you get a great savings by booking online. The staff was excellent, we enjoyed the snorkel spots and had a great lunch. The staff was very honest that the first snorkel spot was a little rough for inexperienced... More

We did the three hour afternoon snorkeling so we stopped by the ship wreck and one other spot to snorkel, and then anchored in the third spot to do the rope swing. Lots of fun by everyone, and good energy and fun music on the boat the whole time. Open bar was flowing the whole time. Lots of families and... More

This pirate ship will take you to two destination to snorkel. It includes all you can drink and it also includes a meal (bbq). The guys who are with you are some of the coolest people you can meet and feel safe around. If you travel solo like I do then this gives you a great opportunity to meet and... More

My family went on a Carnival cruise. Our 1st port was Aruba. Generally, I do not book excursions through the cruise. They tend to be pricey and restrictive so I either book through the internet before my trip or just find activities once I get off the ship. There are plenty of tours available at each port. At any rate,... More

Our two families with young adults enjoyed this cruise immensely with the open bar, music and rope swing. The teens (and parents too) loved the fun atmosphere and the rope swing into the water! It was a fun way to spend the evening with friends and family!

The crew was great. Funny guys who like to joke and serve you free drinks!! Gotta do it while you're there!! If you do ones earlier in the day, you also get to snorkel. We did the evening one because we wanted to see the sunset. Oh, plus there's a rope swing! Awesome time!!!

This is just a party ship, the crew were good and helpful pleasant and friendly unfortunately I can't say the same for a lot of the crowd on board who were rude obnoxious Americans who at the best of times can't handle a drink so when the crew open a free bar with rum it spells for a ship wreck....
