Actors Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz are on a whirlwind tour to promote their new movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth installment in Disney’s popular franchise.
In anticipation for the new movie, Disney theme parks in Anaheim and Orlando have already modified the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction to incorporate elements from the new film, including an image of the infamous Blackbeard (actor Ian McShane) in the grotto scene.
Another option, if you’re not into amusement parks, is to take a trip to the Tropics to explore the history of the real pirates of the Caribbean. Almost every Caribbean island has some pirate history, including the Bahamas, Aruba, Trinidad and Jamaica. Follow the steps of Edward Teach aka Blackbeard, Calico Jack Rackham and John Boysie Singh aka “The Rajah.”
