After the extreme adventure yesterday in Acapulco I was SO looking forward to the next item on the agendaÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ The Spa Villa!
Disney Cruise Lines took the area that used to host one of the fitness rooms and turned it into a set of private ocean side treatment rooms that include massage beds, an outdoor lounger for two and a hot tub. You select a package that dictates the amount of time you spend in the room. Ours was the middle of the road option Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The Couples Choice package which allows for just over 2 hours of total bliss and your choice of treatments from a villa menu.
We arrived at the Vista Spa and completed the usual paperwork.
Then we were lead back beyond the glass doors to our little slice of heaven for the next two hours. We were introduced to our hostesses and given robes for our fist stopÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ a foot bath ritual.
They put bubbling body treatments into the hot tub and we relaxed to the sound of the waves as the ship sailed on its way toÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ wherever Ã¢â‚¬â€œ frankly I was relaxed I didn’t really care. LOL
I also discovered what Chris must have been like as a child in a bubble bath. He was very distracted by the bubbles and seemed to enjoy doing everything possible to keep them away from him. Not sure Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ but maybe ha was attacked by a falling bottle of Mr. Bubble in his youth? Of course the jets just blew them back at him, so it was a lost cause, but it was fun! I am going to have to ask my mother in-law about my anti-bubble theory.
25 minutes later the hostesses began our treatments. Chris opted for the Hot Stones massage and I did a half body (neck and back) stone massage and a mini facial. It was about an hour for the treatment phase and was wonderful!
After the treatments we went back out on the verandah and enjoyed a tea service with fresh fruit and relaxed for another 20 minutes or so.
Reluctantly we left the villa and Linda and I met up for a wine tasting. Today it was champagne and sparkling wines. yum! We learned about how to tell the quality of a bottle by its bubbles and the look of the cork. was very coolÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ plus we got to do some tasting too!
Tonight Chris and I tried Topsiders for dinner allowing me to catch up on my blogs and to catch the finale of dancing with the stars.. ( a sick addictionÃ¢â‚¬Â¦I know) I am under strict instructions to not reveal the winner to our table mates as they have taped it and don’t want to know. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see how long they hold out before curiosity gets the best of them.
Tomorrow Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Puerto Vallarta and the tale of dolphin training and zip lines.
