If you are looking for something different for the kids (not for teenagers) the blaggardly pirates of Campbell's Cove will fit the bill. My wife and I took our 6 year old grandson. The pre-trip material suggests some dressing up. Our grandson had a sword...More

We took a 4 year old along with Dad and Grandpa and everyone was highly entertained. All the children on board were totally engaged and the grown-ups enjoyed the quick repartee between the cast. Highly recommended for all 'would be' Pirates and Pirate princesses!

Really good pirates. Simple funny plot. Our 3yo loved it and still talks about it. Got some great pics. Highly recommend. Shame more people didn't dress up for the cruise.
