A Carnival of a Cruise!

Sometimes when a crew's been at sea for a long, long time, they come back to shore a little...funny. An' sometimes th' ship they were on does too, it seems!

The Funhouse Class Sloop is full o' surprise an' amusement. Fer one thing, ye won't be needin' ladders to go belowdecks, not when this beauty's equipped with spiral slides! Take yer best mates (or yer worst enemies) into th' heart of th' ship an make use o' th' dunk tank. The shark in th' tank ought to give 'em a good scare! If ye wander into quarters that look askew, don't worry, it ain't on account of too much rum. It's a funhouse, after all!

Th' Funhouse Class Sloop is available through April 30, 2016. Get to yer local shipyard today!
