My friend and I had a free evening while in Cancun for a professional conference, so we bought tickets to this by recommendation for the concierge at our hotel. We clearly had NO idea what we had gotten ourselves into. We thought we had signed up for a boat cruise with dinner and a show. We are very low-key people. My college-age self would have had so much fun on this trip but would not have been able to afford it. Even though I am now a responsible adult, I had fun despite myself! The crew was on a personal mission to make sure everyone aboard was going to have fun whether they like it or not.
We were greeted with drinks as soon as we boarded the pirate ship, and the drinks were freely flowing. I had 3 lined up in front of me at one time, and I don't really drink much. The MC was really funny, cheesy stand-up comedy style. There is a lot of audience participation throughout the night with dancing, games, relay races, etc. There was a mix of couples both young and old, families with young children, and a few single folks. We took a 30 minute, bumpy boat ride with dancing and drinking while cruising in the ocean to Isla Mujeres, where we de-boarded. There was a buffet dinner, which was good food with nice presentation on the island. More dancing, comedy, audience participation on the island. EVERYONE participates, so be ready to dance and play along. The ride back was similar to the ride there. Again, the staff was extremely accommodating and making sure everyone was having a good time. It was fun to feel young and carefree again. One of the nice young men (party animals I think they are called) helped my friend and I get a cab at the end of the night. You'll leave feeling like you made new friends even if you didn't get anyone's name. I am quite impressed with the tourism industry in Cancun. People seem to really enjoy their work and make you want to spend your money there. I would definitely return with my more rambunctious friends in the future.
