Oasis of Dreams

Are you ready for a triple post? It's Monday and I just cannot leave out any of these 3 wonderful memes so why not join them all? First is Blue Monday, hosted by Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ . Next comes Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan of htttp://betweennapsonthe porch.blogspot.com and last but not least is Mary of http://dearlittleredhouse.blogspot.com/. You would not want to miss their wonderful posts and that of their participants so be sure to go and visit them.

This is part of the continuing saga of the Oasis of the Seas. There is still a lot more to see. I think I showed you this aqua theater in my other post but I would like to show you more of its features for it really is a fantastic theater. It is shown here with a stage but this stage opens up from a pool with shallow water to a pool that is 19 feet deep to accept the divers safely.

We were watching this team rehearse from our cabin balcony.
See it convert to a pool?
Shown below are taken from the spectacular show.
You can see the performers standing in shallow water
here.

Here the swimmers and their rhythmic dancing. The first picture shows them dancing on the stage, the stage becomes a pool. Isn't that amazing?

Now the divers are diving into a 19 ft. deep pool. Have you noticed the diver on the very high platform in the first picture? Yes, he jumped into the pool from way up there.

The talented performers!

After the performers did their part, the stage became a showcase of a magnificent water show. Truly spectacular!



Thanks to our 3 gracious hosts for these amazing 3 events in Blogland. And thank you all for coming. I hope you enjoyed being here. I am not done showing you about our incredible cruise yet so make sure you come back for more.
