Which one is correct Voyages for Pirates or Voyages of Pirates when you explain the routes used by the pirates?

Voyages for Pirates suggests some kind of travel guide for would be pirates, like a Frommer's guide to the pirate life.

"This pillaging route should take you about 3 hours if you take the long route, but only about and hour and a half if you take the short leg. However, you'll collect a lot more booty on the longer route, while the shorter leg is more heavily patrolled by the Royal Navy, so you run a higher risk of being boarded and your plunder seized. "
