“Macho Men in the Rain”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We hadn't see one of these shows since the Wide World of Sports would bring it to our TV's! We were not disappointed by the wonderful abilities of these very able bodies young men!
Each event was remarkable, with the added challenge of performing in a steady downpour. Our granddaughter got to be a part of the show, which she will always remember.
Good job guys!!

“First time”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

This is the first time we watched a lumberjack show. Great strength and skills of the performers. Well planned show, with the host encouraging crowd participation in cheering the teams. Love the performance. They have heater for the open space theatre, which is good. There is also a gift shop attached.

“Our first show off the ship - great introduction - all smiles”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Yes - I know. But do it anyway! Our girls are in their early twenties - if they had been with us - they would have loved it ( and probably flirted, LOL). These boys work hard to give a great show, and it was. We laughed and smiled. For the price - I think that it was one of best things we did for the happy factor when we were done. Everything doesn't have to be high-end, high-brow, and expensive. The Lumberjack Show is fantastic - and we will definitely go and enjoy it again!

“Great fun for the whole family”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

So initially I rolled my eyes at the idea of a lumberjack show, but it was one of the few things that I thought my 8 YO son, my 83 YO grandmother, my husband and I could all somewhat enjoy. Turns out it was one of the highlights of our vacation! You can pre-purchase tickets though a cruise line or at the counter in the souvenir shop by the show. They even prorate the price if you arrive late. Seating is stadium style. The closest to the action is also the area most likely to get wet. The farther back you sit in the covered stands, the more dry and warm you'll be (there's some sort of heater). Cotton candy and popcorn are sold by a man walking through the stands prior to the show. The show itself is a little bit overdone for the adults but nothing so bad that will leave you groaning. The children loved it. There are small wooden axes for sale for about $10 and you can have the lumberjacks sign them after the show and have your photos taken with them, too. Naturally, the line to go into the show and to exit runs right through the souvenir shop.
