Has anyone actually been on this boat, and do they have a tale to tell?

[quote comment="215871"]I booked a Christmas party for about 20 people on that Pirate Boat once, and I would never recommend it to anyone. The people attending to our function and driving the boat were extraordinarily rude, the welcome and service was dreadful and while the catering by an outside company they recommended was not too bad, the hot food was unfortunately cold by the time the boat staff had advised us that it was ready for consumption. And all the while, you're trapped on a boat, having a a not-so-great time for four or five hours. At least if it's a bad restaurant or club, you're free to leave. We couldn't wait to get off the boat.

I have been to 3-4 parties on this boat and always had a great time. Ok, so it is a little dodgy and customer service is not their 31 feature, but you get what you pay for.

It is called the Pirate Party boat and has a stripper pole. What sort of party did you think you were going to have. If you wanted a nice sit down dinner you should have booked the Southern Cross boat..... and paid the additional $200 per hour.

If you were having a 'not so great' time, you probably have boring workmates or friends.[/quote]

So, if someone experiences rude service, it's their own fault?

I hope to god that you don't work in the services industry.

You get what you pay for Jim,

I wouldn't expect to get waited on hand and foot if i go to McDonalds.

The guys who run this boat do not have the best manners, but you are not paying for first class service, its extremely cheap.
