  • PIRATE SUNSET CRUISE This was very entertaining and had GREAT service aboard the ship! The kids (4 and 9) LOVED it and was equally fun for the adults. Kept the event a variety and really imaginative and fun...highlight of the trip!
  • Captive crew members that will do their best to get you to the fish... it's up to you to catch them. Had a great time. Hooked on fishing now!
