This was worth every cent. The crew engaged all pirates in searching for treasure and fighting off the bad pirate. Loved the crew, shooting the water cannons and seeing the kids do the happy feet limbo. I would highly recommend this pirate excursion.

We took our two granddaughters, ages 10 and 4, on this cruise. The ten year old was on the cusp of growing out of the fantasy, but ages under that were all enthralled. The Captain and the two Mates were dressed in costume, and vests,...More
