|The old French fort|
We found a place called "That Yoda guy movie museum" so Scott had to stop there. I'm not a Star Wars fan or aficionada, but it seems that the creator of Yoda has a museum there with Star Wars stuff, including some Yoda figures.
We stopped at a little cafe to sit and drink a Coke and use their free wifi for a bit to communicate for a bit with our family. Then we got back on the bus and went back to the port and onto the ship. We spent a little time at the pool and I went down one of the 4 slides. But, then nature called and I went back to our room.
We took a nap and when I got up, I put on the most brightly colored clothes that I had brought and went down for the second "Thriller" class. We had dinner in one of the general dining rooms, called "Taste". As near as I can tell, those two dining rooms right across from each other have the same food, just different atmosphere. I think the third dining room might be the same, but it's larger and has a stage for live performances.
After dinner, we went upstairs to the upper deck where the 80's party was going to take place. Probably the most fun I have had in a long time. I love the music because it's my generation. They had fireworks over the ship. When it came time for the flash mob to do "Thriller," the problem was that the "stage"/dancing area was not raised up--it's just part of the floor, only made out of different material so you can see where it is. We were told that if we got lost, the cruise directors would be in front of us and to just watch them. However, when we rushed to the "stage", there were still other people there and we couldn't see the cruise directors at all. And since the other people didn't take the class or apparently learn the dance somewhere along the way, they weren't quite doing the choreographed moves that we had rehearsed. And there was a photographer that was trying to get pictures, and she focused on me but every time she would set for the shot, I would need to turn. So, finally after several attempts, she asked me if I could just pause for a second, so I froze in the classic claws in the air stance and let her take her picture and then I had to hurry up and figure out where we were and catch up. It could have been better managed geographically, but it was fun, nonetheless. My husband took a video of the whole thing and I still haven't watched it. Then the 80s party continued with songs that were near and dear to my formative years and I sang along and chair danced and everything! It was a blast. It was also funny watching drunk guys trying to hit on women, especially when they were married.
