Hi everyone...I have a question about this excursion. My husband, 4 year old and 6 year old and I are interested in it for our July 29th cruise with Carnival. I read that you can only book this excursion through the cruise line. Does anyone know if that's true?

Thank you in advance for your comments

I am not familiar with the details of Carnival's pirate excursion tour. But there are pirate ship tours offered by other tour agencies.

Most likely is true. It's a one of a kind type of excursion. Carnival, more likely than not, rents out the whole thing.

It might be that the schedule of the pirate ship is according the arrival or departure time of the Carnival ship.
Indeed not only the pirate ship but also Vallarta Adventures offering many excursion are only bookable through the ship due the contracts made between them.
You can look for an agent, use google and check with them.
