If you’re looking to host a fun, memorable event, whether the occasion is a birthday, family reunion, or holiday party, Moose Landing Marina offers you a unique venue: the M/V Black Prince. This replica pirate ship is available for private charters, so you can create a swashbuckling adventure for all your guests. The Black Prince has on-board restrooms, a dance floor and sound system, and a food preparation area where you or your caterers can prepare hors d’oeuvres for your guests. We provide the ship, and you can add the finishing touches to your pirate-themed gala with these party ideas:
To go along with the nautical-theme party, you can serve a variety of seafood pirate-themed finger foods. Shrimp cocktail and salmon canapés are great for adults, and swashbucklers of all ages enjoy fish sticks and tartar sauce. Decorate cookies with the Jolly Roger flag, or purchase a cookie cutter to create the outline of a ship.
Pirate-Themed Games & Decorations
Place paper cutouts of Jolly Roger flags, parrots, and gold doubloons around the boat to create a pirate atmosphere. Pin the eye patch on the pirate is a great icebreaker for a kids’ pirate birthday party. You can also have children make their own pirate hats from newspaper, and hooks from candy canes and plastic cups. If you want a truly immersive event, ask your guests to arrive in pirate costume.
For a kids’ birthday party, place fruit punch in a large barrel marked “grog.” For an adult gathering, a variety of rum-based cocktails such as mojitos, Mai Tais, daiquiris, and piña coladas highlight the preferred spirit of pirates everywhere. In cooler weather, hot buttered rum (or hot cocoa for younger guests) can help keep you warm on the high seas.
