Ever dreamed of riding a real pirate ship down the Mississippi river? Well, thanks to modern conveniences like Airbnb, you can.

This 65-foot long pirate ship has two berths and is just a few minutes away from one of the best domestic airports in the world, the Minneapolis-St. Paul. Walk up the gangplank to board the ship and explore everything there is to offer, from secretive nooks to the hammocks on the upper deck.

While this may sound like the kind of adventure that belongs in the 1500s, this pirate ship also comes with some modern luxuries as well, like A/C, WiFi and of course a DVD player.


While you may think that this ship is adults only, it’s also got a family-friendly side as well with themed rooms and the option to put on costume parties.

If you just want to leave the kids at home, though, you could relive your own childhood fantasies and go away with friends. The hosts of this Airbnb treasure have spared no expense, and the devil is truly in the details with this one. 


Getting dressed up on a pirate ship isn’t the only thing to do in Minneapolis. While you’re there, you may as well make the most of some of the best restaurants around. In fact, this city is renowned for its cuisine, attracting foodies from near and far.

For just $300 a night, you can become a real pirate and pretend that you’re headed out to sea.
