Pirate’s Voyage Dinner Attraction’s Holiday Show

Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show, located in Myrtle Beach, takes its audience on a Christmas adventure unlike anything else to be experienced this holiday season. Running through New Year’s Eve, Pirates Voyage performs a twist on a classic Christmas tale with a bountiful feast that will combine a pirate’s “Yo Ho” with the season’s “Ho Ho Ho.”

The holiday adventure starts in the Pirates Village, where a cast of pirates entertain show guests with an interactive experience that includes a pirate holiday sing-a-long. Folks will experience the 12 Days of Christmas with a pirate twist – everything from 10 crewmen leaping and six Jolly Rogers to a parrot in a palm tree. Kids can enjoy being “transformed” in a pirate or mermaid makeover at the Village’s Join the Crew area. Then, guests will enter the arena for the main holiday show, a swashbuckling spin on “A Christmas Carol” with Captain Scrooge and his faithful first mate Bob Crachit.

The Mystical Christmas Spirit takes the captain through time to find the true meaning of Christmas, including a “dream” where giant toys come to life and perform amazing acrobatics high above the indoor lagoon. A comical Christmas castaway and her sea lion companion add to the fun and festive adventure; then, the pinnacle of the Pirates Voyage holiday experience is a live Nativity featuring the three wise men on camels and an angel with a special message. At the show, guests also will be thrilled by an epic battle between the crimson and emerald pirates as they compete for the coveted Christmas treasure.

During this Christmas show, guests are served a four-course holiday feast straight from Captain Scrooge’s galley. The meal begins with creamy vegetable soup and buccaneer bread. Next, guests receive half of a roasted chicken, Captain’s barbeque pork, a cob of buttery corn, and a pirate herb-basted potato.
