yes, i can confirm. the pirate ship is lots of fun with pirate battles and fireworks and yes, lots of booze. and food. we made the mistake of taking a snorkel , buffet, booze cruise on the [ and don't ever forget this name] vagabundo. it was not a catamaran and it swayed and it tipped and people were sick as dogs. it was so bad that when we arrived at yalapa we decided to take the water taxi back to p.v. i think they saved a ton of money on feeding people lunch on the return trip because everyone was too sick to eat. and to avoid confussion, we did not drink anything on the way over so it wasn't that, it was the boat, make sure to take something like a catamaran or the pirate ship. yikkees, I still get quesie thinking about it.
