We had the best time on the pirate ship! The kids enjoyed all the activities, the cast/staff was amazing and the adults could order drinks at the bar! Overall, it was an amazing experience and one to remember!

This is an activity the whole family can enjoy. It's clean, fun, and very relaxing. The entainers do a great job keeping the little ones busy the entire cruise. The other staff workers are so nice and courteous.

In 2011, we took the cruise on our honeymoon. We loved it. Now in 2017, we took the kids. We still loved it and so did the kids. We really recommend it.
