While some Shiprockers were finding their way back to their rooms after a long night, others were up early for some yoga followed by a meet and greet with the bands. The afternoon picked up when Stitched Up Heart took the stage, bringing an energetic set including single "Finally Free". Children 18:3 were up next on the deck, followed by the most requested band of the cruise, Avatar. The performance was as much about the theatrics as it was music, and by the end of the set, it's safe to say anyone who didn't know the band before had become a fan.
The fun moved down to the Stardust Theater for We Are Harlot, who rolled through a number of tracks from their debut album. Danny Worsnop's distinctive voice mixed with genuine classic rock riffs made for a great show from start to finish. As soon as the sun set, Shiprockers began to trickle out in their 80's gear. Smurfs, ninja turtles and more rocked out on the deck to Rubix Kube, a perfect addition to the "Totally Boob Tubular" 80's theme night. The cover band went all out, dressing up in character for each song while everyone danced along.
Back at the Stardust Seether were gearing up for their first performance of the cruise. The four piece wasted no time getting things moving, opening up with "Gasoline" and continuing on with hit after hit. Mid set bassist Dale Stewart picked up an acoustic guitar to join singer Shaun Morgan on "Broken", during which the crowd were close to drowning out Morgan's powerful vocals. Red Sun Rising began the late night fun in the Atrium, drawing a massive crowd to check out one of the biggest breakout rock acts of 2015.
