When I heard that we were going to be going on a pirate cruise at Brandcation in Destin, FL., I was a little worried. I hardly ever dress up and was unsure of how the experience would go. I was even more unsure when I heard it was going to be the adult only version. My worrying was all for nothing though. From the moment I set foot onto the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise in Destin's Harbor Walk Village, I had an amazing time. The atmosphere was always charged and full of fun, the company couldn't have been better and I haven't laughed so hard in my entire life.
We took a group shot and then headed down to the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise boat, which is docked right at Harbor Walk Village at the base of the resort. On the way there, we were told all about the zipline that will be coming this summer to Harbor Walk Village. Can't wait to go back and try it!
The games begun shortly after we finished eating and this is where the laughter began. I don't think it stopped either until we left the boat. Since this is the adults only version, some of the jokes were definitely off color, but all in fun and everyone enjoyed themselves. The games were also of an adult nature. Lynsey was the first to be chosen to participate and you can tell by the look on her face that she was thrilled.
Paula and Joy took a turn at hoisting the flag.
Joy and Trisha had a blast racing against some other couples in another game, and it was about this time that I was almost on the floor in tears.
Blondie and Maggie had some fun all wrapped up trying to pop a balloon and then a lot of the ladies enjoyed some dancing until it was time to go.
I could not have thought of a better way to spend the evening laughing and having fun with friends. It was definitely more fun than a crowded bar and the interaction was fantastic. If you are visiting Destin and are looking for a way to spend a fun evening out, I cannot more highly recommend the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise.
For those of you visiting with little ones, they also have a family friendly day cruise in which children and adults of all ages have fun playing games, learning how to be a pirate, participating in water gun fights, while traveling to find treasure! Prices for the Buccaneer Pirate Cruises start at $36 for adults and $20 for children, with children 3 and under sailing free, but there are often specials going on, so be on the lookout for those.
Have you ever been on a pirate cruise? What was your favorite part?
We were provided with free admission onto the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise in participation with Brandcation, but all words, thoughts and opinions are my own.
