If Saturday Night Fever and Pirates of the Caribbean had a baby, it would be something like this oversexed, 20-minute outdoor spectacle. The musical naval battle between voluptuous Sirens and a greedy gang of pirates is full of groan-inducing lip-synched double entendres, explosions, and backflips from the crow's nests. The finale loosely mimics what happened at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 (and by loosely we mean that we're pretty sure the original battle
didn't include a Siren deejay scratching out a funky beats during an ensemble song-and-stomp routine). Still it's a spectacle and certainly worth a stop on this part of the Strip.

This show was created to put more sex appeal into Treasure Islands image. The show is not nearly as entertaining as the true Treasure Island battle between the pirates and the British that came before this one. The music is extrememly loud and the girl wear next to nothing. But it is entertaining... hard to see because the dock gets so packed.... but what would you expect for a free show that only does 3 shows a night?
