January 1, 2012, Associated Press headline reads (and I am not making this up)....
"Pirate-themed cruise ship runs aground in Fla."
To add insult to injury, the party boat, "Pirate's Ransom" passengers were rescued by a second vessel named, "Island Times" which also ran aground as it attempted to take the festive passengers to shore. No one was hurt in either shipwreck and fog was said to be the culprit.
Wouldn't it have been a surprise to be standing on the beach as over 100 drunk, costumed pirates came swaggering out of the fog just after midnight?
And, do you think the "Double Shipwreck Package" was more expensive?
