We visited the duckaneer with our 3 children. It was mediocre. I think it really depends on the staff you have on board how entertaining it is. We had a couple of young guys and much of what they were talking about went over the...More

The boat ride started out slow and boring. It was only fun when when the other pirate came and we got into a water fight. My 5 year old son was bored and unimpressed.

The entire little cruise and interactive pirate themed show was great. Everyone (including adults) can be involved in a water fight trying to defeat the "bad pirate" and share his treasures.

We bought them about an hour before but I could see it filling up quickly.
Would this be fun for a 2.5 year old boy?

It depends on the child. Our son is five and he loves it. The other two children on the boat were 4 and 6. I don't think our son would have been able to keep up with the "story" at 2.5 but all kids are different. Hope that... More
