Today I had my daily SpaClub Passport to use, so after breakfast in bed I made my way down to the Canyon Ranch Spa. After collecting my robe and slippers, I found a sun lounger and set myself up for the day.

With an Aqua therapy pool, aromatic steam room, Finnish sauna, herbal sauna, ice fountain, reflexology basin, sensory showers, and a whirlpool I was starting to worry that I wasn't going to get a chance to do it all and that really, I should have bought the three-day pass!

After a while, I decided I had lazed around for long enough and it was time for a bit more exploring so I took myself away from my lounger and took a walk to Illuminations where I knew one of the Planetarium shows was about to start.

This evening we got to experience the Verandah Restaurant which is one of the alternative dining venues. There is a cover charge for this restaurant which is $20 for lunch and $49.95 for dinner but it really is worth it as you get to experience no fewer than seven courses! The Verandah takes inspiration from the Verandah Grill on the original Queen Mary and the menu is a celebration of fine contemporary French cuisine – I certainly did not come away hungry!


After dinner, we took to the Royal Court theatre where the performance for the evening was “Broadway Rocks"; featuring all the classics from the Broadway shows including Westside Story and Miss Saigon, there really was something for everyone. I love the theatre, so this was the perfect way to end the day...
