Cloud 9 on Carnival Breeze
Sunday August 24th we began our seminar at sea onboard Carnival Breeze out of Miami, Florida. Since we had priority boarding, it wasn't long after completing the embarkation process that we were on our way to our cabin. Most ships wouldn't have the cabins ready that early, but starting around 12:30 PM, you could go to your cabin and drop off your bags.
As usual, we had some lunch, which in our case was one of Guy's Burgers. We'll write about those in another post because we want to skip ahead to the relaxing part of the day.
After having our burger, we headed to Cloud 9 Spa for a tour of the facility. After all, it was #SpaSunday, so we needed to get some images for our Twitter followers. That was a good excuse don't you think?
One of the therapists, pictured above, demonstrated the hot stones technique on our arms. This is by far our favorite treatment, so it didn't take much convincing that we should start our cruise out right.
Couples Hot Stones Massage
Pictured here is one of the couples treatment rooms that we saw on our spa tour. At the conclusion of the tour we booked the hot stones treatment for right after the mandatory safety drill.
TIP: If you plan on having a massage or other spa treatment during your cruise, go to the spa tour and book your appointments. If you can, take advantage of embarkation day specials as well.
Feeling Like We're on Cloud 9
When we were done with our 75 minutes of the full body massage with hot stones, we certainly felt like we were no longer on a ship, but floating on Cloud 9. We headed back to our cabin after the massage.
This wouldn't be our final visit to the spa. In fact it was just the beginning because we also booked the couples pass to the thermal suite which we'll describe in another article. Welcome aboard Carnival Breeze - visit us again to continue the journey.
