Bayou Pirate Cruise

Hi All,

This is my first time posting on this board. Thanks to all and to Andre for the great info. We're going to be at POR in August and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the PO Pirate Cruise. My girls will be 11, 9, & 7 and I'm wondering if they'll be too old for this. Or maybe just my 11 year old. My younger two did the Bibbidi Bobbidi last August and my older DD wanted nothing to do with that! Do the kids tend to be on the younger side on the cruises? Do the CMs running the cruise try to adapt their schtick for older kids on board?

Any info. is appreciated. I think this could be fun, but I don't want them to be "too cool" for it!

TIA

My 7 year old twins did the cruise in August. While they enjoyed it, my daughter later said it was kinda babyish. It did seem that the kids on the cruise were on the younger side.

We took our chairs out in the "nook" where the doors are located and had a blast.
Thanks! just saw the note about the 30% discount...wondering if I should book the good rate we have now with a TA or just wait. Hm.
