Pirates Voyage Dinner Show Review

On arrrrr way back from Beaufort Pirate Invasion, I decided to visit Dolly Parton's Pirate Voyage in Myrtle Beach.  They ordered a number of pirate tricorn hats from us when it they be opening up.  They had two shows on Sunday day, 6pm & 8:30pm.  We made it to the later one.  It cost $50 per person for the regular seats on the end, and $5 more the the seats in the middle, which Dead Red N Tiger Lee chose.  Overall the place was huge n' well decorated.

You had to get there an hour earlier than the show to get the pre-show.  This allows you to be entertained, but mostly so you had time to buy stuff from the bar (expensive), gift shop (nothing really good) or face painting section (mostly for the kids).  

The outfits were OK, very color coordinated for the two sides, the men's blue team and the women's red team.  Each side of the place cheered for their side, so as to get more audience participation. The outfit were mostly out of spandex, due to the fact that most of them ended up in the water at the end of each act. It was similar to other dinner shows like Medieval Times, but it contained much more acrobatics, similar to Cirque du Soleil in its coordinated performance. Overall I was pleasantly entertained.  My main disappointment was the food, very insitutional, like you would get in a military mess hall.

It be way better than the Pirate's Dinner Adventure in Orlando, which I was not impressed at all with, arrrrgh!  In think since Dolly Parton owns it n' has a background in entertainment, that she truly wanted to provide a good show instead of setting up a tourist trap to collect money.
