10 Stars!!! Here’s how it went. We took a pic before boarding, got a free drink and found our seat. Once they got underway they called all the kids into the first level galley area and started entertaining them with games that included coming back out and interacting with the parents, squirting us with pirate water pistols etc. They entertained the kids for the entire two hours. While the kids were being entertained they continually came around to the adults with FREE beer and wine. They ended things with an awesome dance party for the kids and still more beer and wine. Even with the beer and wine flowing it was still 100% family friendly. I don’t drink but I still thought it was the best value for kids and adults EVER. I’ve been to Medieval Times, other boat rides, you name it we’ve done it and NOTHING even comes close. Teenagers might be s little bored because the games are more fore elementary and early middle school and they’re not old enough to drink BUT if you have young kids and enjoy a beer and wine you WILL not have a better time. My wife and I are 47 and our son is 7. Also, we went on the 7:00pm sunset so hot weather wasn’t an issue. Not sure it would be the best in the hottest part of the day.

My family enjoyed this for the most part. A couple things you may want to know. I feel this cruise was more for younger children, which was fine since my son is five. The face painting consisted of a mustache or scar quickly swiped on by one of the people acting on the ship. If your child is shy there is a lot of dancing and being the center of attention. So keep that in mind. The drinks they offered were hot soda in cups. No ice. There was unlimited beer and wine I didnt drink any but I’m pretty sure it was cold.

We took this voyage at 5 pm on a Sunday with 5 people ages 10, 13, 36, 36, and 79... we were a little unsure how it could be enjoyable for all but it absolutely was!! The kids were entertained by the water gun fights, the pirate stories, and who knows what else... the adults all enjoyed the complimentary beverages promptly served by (a very handsome) young pirate. The crew, I believe, was short staffed, but were still absolutely amazing! My 10 year old really did not want to go, he thought it would be stupid. The captain and crew checked on him until he felt more comfortable. Now he’s asking when we can go again! We got to see the sunset and it was breathtaking! I cannot thank Captain Memo and crew enough for helping us create wonderful memories!

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! They keep the kids entertained the whole time, and make sure the beers keep coming for the adults. Was skeptical with unlimited beer and wine, but they aren't stingy whatsoever. Kids wanted to go every night. The cruise itself is nice, especially the 5 p.m. sunset cruise. Staff are friendly and energetic!

An awesome experience!! We went twice this past winter. The staff are simply amazing. They love their job, it’s easy to see. Loved Captain Gary! If you are in Clearwater make the sunset cruise a must do!
