Celebration cruise ship

This is the last of post about my weekend cruise that I'm reporting to no one in particular than myself probably but I just really wanted to write about the entertainment.

After getting back on to the ship we changed out of our beach clothes and watched as we sailed away from the dock. We had our dinner reservation at 8pm but also wanted to catch the beginning of the show at 9pm so BestF and I decided to catch a bit of the 7:15 show before dinner. Luckily we all ate with enough time to get to the 9pm show early so basically we saw two of the performers twice. 

It wasn't nice enough out to photograph the island as we sailed away so Best decided to test her camera out with me and lighting I don't have all those photos.

Now to the fun stuff. The first performer was Dario 'El Gaucho' a comedian born in Argentina and now based here in Miami. He is hilarious with his accent and facial expressions he also does some pretty crazy tricks with two boledoras rope with ball attached to the end. Between his comedic lines and just the expressions he made we were definitely laughing. I couldn't find an exact link to him just links to different agencies or casinos that feature him. But you can just Google him to find more information and one or two videos.
I would have knocked myself out with those things!
                                     
The guy on stage had a cigarette in his mouth and El Gaucho was trying to knock it out. I though this guy was going to pee himself.

The next performer is Russian acrobat Kirill Rebkovets. He performers with a giant cube and does a rolla bolla act that is crazy. The whole time we kept gasping I thought he was going to fall and break something. Apparently he's traveled all over the world including with Cirque du Soleil and is now based in Orlando Florida. I give this guy major props although I slightly hate him because he's more flexible and me and has major balance and coordination skills which I lack.

I haven't been able to raise my leg that high since high school.  ESPECIALLY on a rolling cylinder tube!!
                                       
I've always had a love for dancers and crazy performers so when I went to see Cirque de Soleil's Corteo a couple years ago when they came to Miami I was hooked. There was nothing like it to me. My goal is to see as many of their shows before I die.  Kirill made me feel like I was back at CdS show.
Oh come on man!
AT this point everyone in the audience was holding there breathe it was pretty amusing.
The other performers I didn't get pictures of but other performers included: Tom McTiernan a comedian who I believe has been on Comedy Central before. Kier a Comedian/Impressionist. Tricia Kelly whose is an actress/singer with a very talented voice.

Then the night was finished with a Caribbean Idol semi final contest in which the winner was placed in the finals this month where they'll come back to the cruise and compete for a $10,000 cash prize. This was followed by an adult scavenger hunt (funniest thing in the world to watch.) Then dancing and drinking for the rest of the night although I called it a night after the scavenger hunt because I was very tired. I kind of wish I was still on that cruise because being back to reality and bills already has me worn out.
So that happened...
Oh and that...
