I am really enjoying this itinerary and its only day 3! Its the first sea day with lots of activities and items on the agenda, including such strenuous to-dos as; should I have breakfast in or go up to the buffet? Should I take a nap in the cabin or take my glass of asti out on the balcony? decisions, decisions….
Todays agenda started with an invite from Deb to join her along, with Ann & George another couple from out group, at the Concierge Reception at 10:30 am. We met in the lobby and made our way towards Sessions where cocktails and a nice spread of fruit, breads and other yummies were available for consumption. We spent a while chatting and enjoying the company of friends and halfway through the visiting ritual, a special guest arrived.
Cinderella spent about a half an hour taking photos and chatting with the guests.
After our encounter with royalty, naturally we went shopping! We had to check out all the Panama canal specialty items that are on sale to help plan the souvenir budget over the next few days.
Sorry to have to break the news… but no matter what they say, Disney’s food does indeed have calories. and the constant offerings of buffets, dinner seatings and yes… the infamous chocolate souflee can take a toll on anyones routine. So I decided I would test my self control and challenge myself to exercise everyday.
To help me on this quest, I decided to sign up for a personal trainer as soon as there was a spot available. At 3:15 pm I was in work out gear and ready to meet Mathew. A very fit 20–something with a great personality and a ton of energy. We started on cardio and we though a circuit of machines so I would have a good starting point for the next 2 weeks. And I have a feeling I will wake up hating him tomorrow.
Tonight was formal night for dinner, and of you know anything about my vacation habits, that means ‘Beci’s Room Service’ night. I stayed in and enjoyed my dinner watching the latest news and catching up on my email.
