Well, I have to say that if I am ever fortunate enough to cruise on DCL again, I don't think I would have to watch the "show" on pirate night. I thought it was OK...it was the sail away party with a pirate theme in my opinion. I love the whole pirate theme, but the highlight for me was Mickey on the zipline and the fireworks. But I loved the excitement that seemed to fill the ship on pirate night and seeing all the characters and cruisers all dressed in the pirate garb. We watched from deck 10. So maybe it is more fun down on deck 9 if you dance and get a little more involved??
