Pirate Dark Star Cruise WILDWOOD - The best of the best in all areas!! 5/5 hands down nothing better than this ship for the kids and believe it or not for us parents too bc we get to enjoy the show and the pirates entertain the kids allowing you to sit for a second! Which is nice! The music, the staff, price, location and agenda all 5/5!!!! Definitely a great option to do aside from the beach and hustle and bustle busy boardwalk.

I dont believe we will ever be doing this pirate ship ride again. When arriving we had 6 people. One of those people was a baby who isn't a year old yet. We were asked if the baby was included in our party of 6. Then we were informed that we didn't have to pay for the baby. Even though the website says nothing about not paying for a child under a certain age. It is one price for every person. When asking for a refund then being that we didn't have to pay for the baby we were td there is no way that could happen. To which we don't understand bc if we paid but didn't have to pay why can't we get a refund for that.  Also we were told there would be face painting. But there was only tattoos handed out to the kids. Which a pirate went around putting them onto the kids. So I was thinking possibly bc of covid but then why get close to a child to put a tattoo on. Also there wasn't a pirate on a different ship spraying water at the children. We were told they didn't have anyone to drive that boat for that to happen. So our kids just sprayed the water at the water. We were very disappointed as our kids were really looking forward to this experience. Definitely a let down. And will NOT be returning.  Thanks

Several family members accompanied our 5 yr old grandson on our trip, 7/21/21. Halfway through the pirate experience, a significant thunderstorm arose with lightning, wind and driving rain! Despite the poor conditions, the cruise continued moving forward, with no mention of providing life vests to patrons or returning to the dock. Kids cried and asked to go home. All aboard were soaked to the skin. The management offered no parting words of regret or return vouchers. They were lucky that there was no no health incident on board.Their lack of boating knowledge and safety practices put people at risk. For these reasons, I do not recommend supporting the Dark Star Pirate Cruises.

We booked early and had been on other starlight boats. We had good time with the grandkids. It was a hot day but the breeze on the back bay was nice. The crew was good with all age kids.
