I was on the Star Princess and booked this show with the cruise. It was very entertaining, especially for city dwellers like myself who have never seen a lumberjack. The show is of the right duration and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Lumberjacks compete in different activities. Lots of laughs. Kept the audience well entertained. Interesting to see the skills these men have. Fun time for all. Had a nice gift shop. Staff very friendly. Gave some in-site to how hard these lumberjacks work.

Very interesting and fun to watch. A good time for most people. A little boring for older children. The show was good and entertaining however I thought it could use a little more action to keep the audience involved and more exhilarating.

Yes this show is staged and kitschy and follows a script but nevertheless a bit of fun. Not to be taken seriously - its not a competition that you might see at your local fair/show. Go with an open mind and you will have some laughs.

The exhibition area is surrounded by high fencing and has covered bleachers with overhead heating when needed. Excellent competition demonstrating lumberjack skills.
