The cast and crew of the show were very talented and stay in character the entire night. We arrived at around 5:30pm. We were immediately greeted by a pirate as we stepped out of our transportation, which he directed us straight to the ticket counter. We had purchased our show from the resort, so we only needed to pay our dock fees ($12/person), declare the type of main course for dinner, and obtain our wrist band (wristband color indicator of which meal you have selected). The next step was to meet our personal pirate, William Connor. His instructions we clear and helpful. We boarded the ship around 6pm, but were entertained by the ships band in the garden area in front of the ship. The ships crew began the show before we boarded which helped make the wait pass more quickly. The show itself was a simple story line of a trader trying to overtake the captain's command. The sound, light effects, and action were surprisingly good in such a confined space. William Connor did an excellent job of seating us and ensuring that our group of about 15-16 enjoyed the open bar. He would take our order and bring the drinks back in a timely manner. The show had a few surprises that I was not expecting which helps the rating into a 4 star experience. If were up to the food, I would have just rated it a 3 star, as we upgraded to a premium package for the meal choice, and the New York strip in the photo appeared to be at least a 1.5" cut of meat when in actuality it is a thin 1/4" cut. The meal was somewhat disappointing, so I would recommend not upgrading as it is an additional cost in which the value is poor. The show got the audience to participate as much as possible by engaging us to stand at our seats and dance, recognizing origin of countries represented in the audience, and 4-6 audience members will be recruited to be on stage. We actual sailed for about 2.5 to 3 hours in the sea, so if you get motion sickness there is a possibility. The tour dock back in port about 9:45pm, and our personal transportation arranged in our package was on site which allowed us to leave by 10pm.

I had low expectations- thought this would be a cheesy pirate show - similar to what you’d see at Disney. I was wrong. This show was so much fun and they immediately had the audience involved. I’m not sure who was better; the band (amazing!) or the cast of pirates (hilarious and rarely broke character). We arrived a little early so we had the chance to see the pirates milling around posing for pictures and always remaining in character. Once we boarded the boat, we were seated and the show began with an amazing band that played everything from Latin to American classics. Our “personal pirate” was Rasta and he was incredible. He worked so hard refreshing drinks throughout the night and serving dinner later in the evening- really professional and fun guy. After the band wrapped up the show began. The dialogue was in both English and Spanish and lasted about an hour. I’m posting a couple pictures of pirates that I was able to capture. After the show, dinner was served and then after that, dancing resumed on the main deck compliments of the wonderful band. What a blast. I attended with my husband and son. I can’t imagine how fun it would be with a group. This was the highlight of our trip.

We took my whole family from ages 8 to 88 on this ship and it was great! It was well organized and the food was really good. They took great care of my elderly mom and set her up where she would be comfortable. As you board the boat there is a fantastic band. They played 80's type rock, very very good vocals. When the show started they really involved the guests, clapping, dancing having great audience participation. When the actual show started it had everyone's attention. I won't tell you the details but all of us really enjoyed it and the fireworks show was just a perfect way to end the night.

I normally don’t like to leave bad reviews, but in this instance, I feel like I need to warn travelers. This tour was a complete waste of time and money. It was completely unorganized. We didn’t even get started with anything until two hours into us sitting on the boat. Dinner was terrible and not served until 10 o’clock at night, after 4 hours of sitting on a boat watching a very mediocre performance.

Our two sons, ages 10 and 7, absolutely love Pirates. They did not like the show, were tired and irritable because they hadn’t eaten. If this tour is catered towards families, they have it all wrong! All they did to pass the time between the show and dinner - about 1.5 hrs of sitting on uncomfortable benches - was try to serve more drinks to the adults and hold a very annoying dance party. All the guests were over it!

Proceed with caution, but I recommend against this tour!

This was the biggest waste of money on our trip. We expected to see a sunset and have a pirate themed experience. The winds were high so we never left the dock!! We never sailed anywhere!! We waited almost two hours for anything to get started and then it was like an elementary school talent show. By the time we ate any food, it was after 9:30 pm local time. My son was bored from all the waiting and it was a complete waste of time and money. I would recommend you do NOT add this to your itinerary in Cancun.

I was not expecting such an amazing performance. The captain and crew were great, the show was very entertaining with the perfect amount of comedy relief,brilliant with improv, and Passenger involvement. The drinks were good and plenty, the food was good we had the steak and lobster both cooked perfect. Nothing felt rushed and our personal pirate Logan was amazing both as a waiter and actor.

We were not really sure what to expect, figured it would be fun and something to do. Well it was so dang much fun! WOW! I think this will be something that we will want to do every time we come back. I can wait to bring the grand kids they would love it! From the minute we were dropped off we were entertained. All the pirates were in costume and all ready for pictures, talk with them, etc. There was a band that played until we set sail. A great time from the very beginning. Crazy Beer, still makes me laugh! He’s just a poor boy from a poor family!” Ha- What a hoot! It was a laugh a minute! The show was great! The food was good, it wasn’t excellent but I didn’t expect that. The bathrooms were adorable! Make sure you check them out. On the way back to shore its a huge dance party! GREAT TIME! These guys put on a great show and cater to you all night! Give them a good tip! They work hard and make sure everyone has a great time! They really cater to kids! I love that! Thanks Jolly Roger Gang! We will never forget what a fun night we had!

Had a great time on the Jolly Roger Pirate Ship! The highlight was the Entertainment crew!!! WOW! Amazingly talented musicians, band, actors, acrobats, set and stage lighting/sound. 100% professional!!! I found the whole experience a little too focused on alcohol and drinking, which made it feel less appropriate for kids. Although there were plenty of kids on board and most seemed to be having a great time. I would recommend over 9 or 10 years. The food was also high quality and delicious although we felt a bit cramped, hot and claustrophobic downstairs in the eating room. The sea was calm and beautiful. Staff do a great job a remembering everyone's meal and drink orders and a few mistakes can be expected as its a very busy night for the wait staff. They do deserve good tips!! The highlight of our night was when Logan jumped off the plank into the sea while we we were sailing! Very impressive!!! And the pirate fight was beautifully choreographed and executed! Lots of fun! Thanks for a great night! (arrive early to get to the front of the line, to get on the boat first and be up front)

What a night! Great show! Friendly first class service and a wonderful meal. I was completely taken by surprise at what a marvelous night we had. Family friendly fun, top shelf liquor (I'm english, so it's important) and great music. Especially our waiter "Vain" was very attentive and professional. The Jolly Roger crew run an organized ship. Well done! We will be back next year. Oh.... order the lobster they nail it.

We were 4 (2 adults and 2 kids - ages 10 and 4). We chose to stay on the top most deck and at the front row. This worked well as we could see the show on the deck below while also appreciating the surrouding sea. We went early March and there was a very light breeze but not cold at all.
The show was certainly entertaining - but unless you know Spanish you cannot understand the whole show as they speak a lot in Spanish. Nevertheless it was great to see them do what they do.
The pirates keep you entertained until the very end with singing, dacing and stunts.
Overall a very good show and we thoroughly enjoyed. My 4 year old son was very happy to take a picture with the pirates and when they gave him some gold (chocolate) coins at the end - it made his day!
