“A Flash Mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse.” We’ll take Wikipedia at its word, with one caveat. On Royal Caribbean‘s Oasis, Allure (pictured), Liberty and Freedom of the Seas, the seemingly pointless act — a choreographed dance at a predetermined time and place — may include a green ogre or some penguins alongside RCI crewmembers. (For the rest of the fleet, where the Dreamworks army hasn’t arrived, it’s a people-only spectacle.) And while the first few mobs are passenger-free, RCI Activity Specialist Alison Frazier told us that dance-happy cruisers can join the happening on some ships — after a couple lessons. Just bring your two left feet to the mob dance classes that appear in the daily cruise-letter.
