Party Time

Wednesday January 18th – Day 14

Last night in The Colonnade there was a Brazilian themed dinner followed by a ‘Rock The Banana Boat’ show on deck followed by a Samba Show.
A local Samba troupe joined the ship in Salvador and will stay with us until Rio. They really got the party going with some great music and dance routines.
This afternoon we went to a Samba class run by the dancers for an hour. It was so hard like having an aerobic workout. Vance was really good – that’s his dance background coming out  – but teacher says I must do better!!
After returning to our suite after a formal dinner in the Main Restaurant we found our first Seabourn gift of the cruise – two CDs – one of Brazilian music and one of South African music…now I’ll be able to keep up the Samba moves at home.
