Thursday 7th March 2013
Kinesis was really hard today but we must keep going as there is only one more class before we leave to go home. Craig said every exercise must count because he hadn’t got much time left with us and he wanted to hone our bodies into perfect specimens…sorry Craig, this body hasn’t been perfect in a long time.
We are still trying to spend our remaining onboard credit in the shop…unfortunately Seabourn don’t allow you to ‘carry forward’ unused credit to your next cruise, which is a pity as it would tie the guests in…if they didn’t cruise with Seabourn again they would lose the outstanding credit…seems an ideal marketing strategy to me!!
Anyway we spent quite a long time in the boutique trying to find clothes for me but either I didn’t like the designs or they didn’t have my size…most things left on the rails were really small sizes and I know Craig has been working me hard but there is no way I’d get into a size 10 or size 12…sigh, maybe next year…and no rude comments from you Vance.
Needless to say Vance found several things he liked (and they fitted him of course but then he is skinny…ok…athletically built!!)so we bought him shorts and trousers both Ralph Lauren Polo – both at a very good price. I forgot to tell you before but we passed a Ralph Lauren factory in Bali – perhaps we should have gone in there!!
