I booked this pirate cruise for my son's sixth birthday. It was awesome. The pirate crew was great. They did face painting on all the kids and gave them stickers with their new pirate names. Then we set off on the pirate cruise. The kids were able to use water guns/cannons to shoot Black Bart, the enemy pirate, who pulled up on a separate small boat. The kids found a treasure map, pulled up a "treasure" chest from the water, danced, and even did the limbo. All in all, it was one of the best, if not the best, birthday parties I have ever had for any one of my kids. Even the parents on the boat had a great time. Also, we had the boat all to ourselves and the birthday package was not expensive at all. Would definitely recommend this!
