Review of Netfix's Pirate Series: One Piece

I have known about One Piece the manga series fer a long time, but could never get into it because the silly looking outfits of the main characters.

But since owning a pirate store, I must explore everything pirate, so I watched the Netflix series.  I was a big anime fan before becoming a pirate.  I have not read any of the 1000+ chapers of manga, nor warched tghe 1000+ episodes of anime,15 movies or any of the video games.

In the begining it seemed a bit dumb, but the more I watched the more I got connected with the characters. I love when a team gets pulled together. I did admire the captain's comitment to his krewe.  Each epidsode introduced a new character and reveals their backstory.  The production value was great, along with the acting.  It be worth the watch fer Luffy n' the Staw Hat Pirates, if you don't take it too seriously.

Tiger takes his Krewe on a Cruise!

After a record Black Flag Friday from this years Gasparilla, Tiger Lee rewards his hard working krewe with a cruise aboard the Margaritaville at Sea.  It be the only cruise ship that has weekday cruises, since we can't close arrrr retail store on the weekends.  All other cruise lines leave on saturday.  Normally I treat my krewe to a day at the East Indian Mouse Company (Disney World), but this year I decided to do something better.  It cost less to spend 2 days at sea than one day at the Holy Rodent Empire.

Since Jimmy Buffet wrote a book called "A Pirate Looks at 50", I figure a cruise line run by a drunken pirate would be OK.  We cruised over to Freeport, Bahamas to visit the new Bahamas Maritime Museum.  It featured the recovered plunder from the Nuestra Senora de las Maravillas which sank in 1656. 

We pirates ate, drank n' partied like it was 1699. It's not the Queen Mary, but it was a fun little 2 day cruise.
