Inaugural voyage Thursday, March 17, 2011 from 10am to 2pm
The Jolly Roger I is fresh from a major rebuild and refitting and she’s ready for her first commercial cruise on Tuesday morning.
The Barbados Rally Club sampled The Jolly Roger’s hospitality last weekend and a fantastic time was had by all. The ship will host regular 4 hour cruises on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Reservations: (246) 826-SAIL (246-826-7245)
How about a blog for Black Pearl Party Cruises?
The website for Black Pearl Party Cruises – the Barbados company that runs the Jolly Roger – is a little basic. No doubt Captain Shane and his partners have some grand plans that will take a while to kick in, probably with online bookings and all that.
In the meantime, they should consider throwing up a blog at WordPress because it could be done in a day. Call it the “Captain’s Log of the Jolly Roger” or some such name, and do one short entry every day about the boat, the crew, the trips, some movie star that they saw on the beach as they went by Sandy Lane or some little happening. Keep it light, photos of the boat and Barbados as seen from the boat. Profiles of the crew. Comments from passengers, stories of first timers to Barbados. Adventures finding the boat, getting it rebuilt and getting it to Bim.
Yup, I could see that blog being picked up by Google, and with Facebook and Twitter establishing the Jolly Roger’s serious presence on the internet and in Barbados tourism virtually overnight so that any tourist thinking of coming to Barbados would be bound to stumble across the Jolly Roger and decide to take a cruise while on the island.
That’s our suggestion and we promise to Captain Shane and the good crew that if they put up a blog, we’ll regularly link to their stories. That goes for any Barbados business, because these are tough times and we will help where we can if asked.
