Christmas at Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show

Blending high-flying acrobatics, vibrant light and sound displays and fun-filled contests between competing teams of pirates, guests will be blown away at the Christmas show put on by Pirates Voyage. Watch as life-size toys spring to life and witness an awe-inspiring nativity complete with live animals. Christmas at Pirates Voyage exudes lots of heart and plenty of laughs to put all visitors in a joyful mood. On top of the show, guests will enjoy a bountiful four-course feast that will satisfy even the biggest of appetites. Christmas at Pirates Voyage runs nightly at 6 PM now through the end of the year.
