Our 8 year old was determined he wasn't going to have a good time. He had a blast. The crew artfully engaged him and had him volunteering before our time was up.

The adults have just as much fun as the children do! It's a fun and active 2 hour trip that's well worth you're money!

We took the pirate cruise during our vacation. The party included Myself, my wife, my mother in law, and my infant daughter. The actors were great and very convincing.
