Am I the only one that really wants the pirate ship to go away at CC?

    I never liked it. We were the first ones at Castaway Cay to have it, we woke up to it in June, 2006 during a double dip cruise. I'm so glad that first Sunday was free of it, I just think its soooo ugly next to the beautiful Magic and just gets in the way of taking awesome shots of the ship. It is just sooooooo ugly to me. Anyone else?

    I think it's kinda cool, although it wouldn't break my heart if they took it away. I can take it or leave it.

    Jill, I am with you. I think it is pretty creepy and just looks out of place in that beautiful area. Of course, my opinion is based solely on all the pictures I have seen of it and not with my own eyes.

    I'm with you on this... while I think the ship is kind of neat, I hate where it is. It's too bad they couldn't have put it off somewhere less close to the dock - so that it could've provided a nice hike/walk for those who want to see it, but not sit there in front of the ship when it comes to pictures etc.

    Too bad Disney doesn't consider moving it somewhere else where it could become an attraction.

    Aloha,
    I love it:thumbsup2:thumbsup2:thumbsup2

    It's a great fit for the island. That ship represents the past of the carribean history.
    You just close your eyes an think back to the pirates who roam the carribean.It's a perfect fit. Who knows there are probably ghosts who converge on the ship and swap stories with friends and foes.
    At night you might see eyes peering off the ship.pirate:pirate:pirate:pirate:


    aloha,

    As a massive fan of the movies I am so looking forward to seeing the Flying Dutchman at Castaway Cay - I would hate it if they moved it from there. It would be great if they could bring the Black Pearl there also, but hopefully they are keeping that safe for the next installment pirate:

    OMG, Don't take the Flying Dutchman away! I'll never forget the kids' faces seeing that when we docked at CC. The pictures we took with that in the background are SO COOL!pirate:

    I love it! I think it adds a mystique to the island, as if long ago pirates landed on CC. :)

    I don't want it to go away. I loved seeing it sit there as we pulled into Castaway Cay. Plus, when you are on the island, there's a great spot to have your picture taken with Jack Sparrow with the Dutchman behind you. Also, having a picture with the Magic/Wonder with the Dutchman in front of it makes for a good photo. Besides, if someone wants to get a picture of just the Magic/Wonder, there are a couple places on the island that you can go for that, The Heads Up Bar comes to mind.

    I hate where the ship is. It gets directly in the way of photos Id like to take of the ship. If they could move it to another position so we could have a clear shot of the Magic Id like it better.

    Other than that, its time to move the pearl.

    I think it's neat! If they were to move it, it would have to be where the watercraft could still get to it. Lots of folks like to go out and get a closer look.

    Turning it into an attraction (with a dock around it) would take away from it, IMO.
