There are certain obligations that come with writing about Dolly Parton’s pirate-themed dinner and show, located just a cannon-blast or two away from Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

The obligations are:  

  • Dad jokes are a must. If you don’t have pirate puns, get ready to walk the plank 
  • Pirate lingo. If the words avast, swab or matey do not appear in your story, you have failed as a writer
  • Sea chanteys are also a must. Don’t know any good sea chanteys? Honestly, what are you doing with your life?
  • You’ve got to talk about pirate food. You’ll be eating more than hard tack and limes to avoid the scurvy, landlubber

So, with those rules out of the way, let’s get down to business shall we? 

When did Pirates Voyage open?

Avast ye landlubbers, Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show in Pigeon Forge opened in May of 2019 and, if ye be a fan of dinner shows, there are certainly less entertaining ones around. 

That’s right, I’m looking at you, lumberjacks.

The show, featuring the world’s most famous pirate, Blackbeard, and his quartermaster, Calico Jack (who I assumed was a blatant rip-off of Disney’s Jack Sparrow but is actually named after a real pirate), divides the crowd into two teams, Crimson and Sapphire.

The crews then battle on behalf of their respective sides on land, on deck, in water and high above full-sized pirate ships in an indoor hideaway lagoon. 

There are appearances by beautiful mermaids, tropical birds and more. The show features music by Dolly Parton and Mark Brymer. 

If you’re into such things, it’s a Jolly Roger of a good time.

Is Pirates Voyage worth it?

Honestly, it’s a little easy to be cynical about a pirate-themed dinner show, but if you can set that aside it can be quite a bit of fun, especially if you bring some kids along and live through their enjoyment.

The animal acts are entertaining, and the crews of singers, divers, dancers and aerialists are talented. 

The best assessment I can give is this: You know yourself and your family. If you enjoy this kind of thing, it’s really well done and you’ll have a great time.

If this isn’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of other things to do and places to eat in and around Pigeon Forge. 

Or to put it another way, the only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can’t do.

No. But, whoever designed the Pirates Voyage website isn’t afraid to play a little fast and loose with copyright infringement and let you think some Jack Sparrow-esque action is in store.

  1. Love love loved this show. I think it’s the best show in pigeon forge!!!! Great customer service and dinner.

  2. The show was absolutely fabulous!!!!! The staff was very friendly, the characters in the show were excellent! However, the food was not. We attended the Hatfield/McCoy show and the food there was great! Disappointed in the food at the Pirate Show.

  3. Avas ye Landovers the show was terrific however the dinner was 2 out of ten that’s why ye have never seen a fat pirate or fat sea goer little to pricier long lines suck hatfields and mcoys blow them out of the water although if you have kids it’s perfect not so much for adults

  4. The live animals were a hoot! Acrobatics we’re impressive! Food was ok.
    Don’t forget to bring cash to tip your server. They work hard to keep everything moving along with the show.

  5. Food was good. The seal was great for the kiddos. I was unimpressed with the pirate outfits. It’s supposed to be a family show. One of the main pirates for the crimson side wore a body suit with skin tight leggings beneath. There was nothing left to the imagination.
