This ship replaced an earlier one which sank at sea. That one had a bit of history as it was used in the TV series Sir Frances Drake during the 1960's. This hastily put tegether replacement is a bit cruder and less detailed. Still it...More

Interesting for children and adults, staff very friendly, and dressed as pirates to engage with the children. Children received a certificate if they 'walked the plank '. Gift shop on board, reasonably priced.

Cost £18 for a family of 4. We were on on it for about 15 minutes. Quite disappointed with what there was to look at and the staff seemed to hurry people on and off as quickly as possible.
