A long cruise - we're on our way part 1
You might have heard about all the neat things to do while on a cruise. There's gambling, eating, exploring new places, eating, reading, eating, etc.
On Holland America's ships there is a space set aside called The Greenhouse. This is their spa area. Heating chairs, hydrotherapy pool, massages, facials and more. As you might expect, the prices are not the same as you might pay in your own town. For instance, my local massage gal charges $50 for 60 minutes - I have been her client for quite a while. On the ship, a massage is only 50 minutes and the charge is about $130 (and up)! That 10 minute period is to try to sell you products and to allow the room to be utilized in perfect one-hour increments.
Today's pictures were all taken about 4:00 a.m. when most decent people were in their cabins asleep.
