After dinner, we got our pictures made (lines we not long at all this time), and then we went to the theater a bit early to get seats for the final show, “Jump, Jive, & Wail”. The show was good, my second favorite of the cruise. At the end of the show, the dancers and singers left the theater singing and dancing and went into the lobby where they continued to dance and sing for everyone there. It was cool.
Here's a short video excerpt of the actual show ... click HERE

After the show, we stopped by the Punchliner Comedy Club, but it was a packed house, so we decided to wait and hit the last two shows of the cruise, which were a bit later. Having some time to kill, we ventured down to the casino to throw some money away! Seriously, they should just have workers stationed at the doors to just scan your cards. I NEVER win! Argh! End rant.
About 20-25 minutes before the next comedy show, we headed back there and ran into my son (14) and my nephew (16). Apparently, they were saving us seats for the 9:45 show and we never showed up. However, they still stayed for the show!
Now, this was an “Adults Only – Over 18” show. Neither one of them look anywhere near 18 and from what they say, nobody asked them any questions. Now, that being said, when we showed up and were walking around to find a place to sit/stand, the MC told the boys to leave. They were P.O.’d, but I wasn’t because it’s supposed to be a show for adults and if kids are taking up real estate, some adults would not be able to see a show that was meant for them. The boys left and we found a place to stand at the back by the bar for the 10:45 show with John Rathbone. He was funny … much funnier than Hal Spear at 11:45 p.m. … IMHO. Each show actually only lasts about 40 minutes, so there’s some time to kill between shows. During that time, my mom and her BFF called it a day. Then, a booth cleared out except for two people, and I politely asked if we could sit with them and they said sure! Thank goodness, cuz my dogs were barkin’. I learned they were on their honeymoon and also from Ohio! Small world! After the show, the rest of us called it a night!
