I was reading up on the Dream's Rainforest room and came across the following: http://allears.net/cruise/ships/dream/recreation/senses_spa.htm

The site lists the services and under the rainforest is the following:
"THE RAINFOREST THERMAL SUITE
Daily Pass $16
Rainforest Sensory DIY Scrub Experience $27"

But, when I look it up the "Scrub Experience" on the DCL site, it's not listed.

Has anyone tried this or seen it on the menu at the spa? :confused3

Thanks for your help!!! :flower3:

I added on the DIY scrub to my rainforest room day a few weeks ago on the Dream. From my understanding, you can only do the scrub if you have a rainforest pass. The price was indeed was $27.

One of the ladies at the desk mixes up the scrub for you. You are able to choose the scent and the herbs, etc that get added into the scrub. They will mix it up for you and while it is being mixed, they will have you relax on the tile chairs. After you get the scrub you'll go into one of the heated rooms to open up your pores. After you sit for about 5 minutes doing that, you are to apply the scrub and then sit another 10 minutes. When you are done sitting, go and choose your shower choice (there were 12 or 15 choices to choose from on the Dream) and rinse the scrub off. After that step, you will go into the sauna room, be warned it was very hot and hard to breath in there for me personally, they recommend 5 minutes in that room for the whole process, but I only stayed for 2 because of the noted breathing complications (and no I don't have asthma). The last step is to then relax again on the tile chairs and drink some water to help bring your body temperature back down to normal.

In all I enjoyed the treatment. My skin felt very rejuvenated afterwards and the dead skin basically peeled off during the process. I still have about half of the scrub jar left.

Is that only available on the Dream? And is that $27 in addition to the $16 for the rainforest room?

Thank you so much for sharing your experience! :flower3:

Do you know if one of the available scrubs was the lime and ginger scrub? Thanks again!

I recently was on the Dream, and had a Rainforest Day Pass; and while I thoroughly enjoyed the tile loungers and the showers, I agree that the steam room and the sauna rooms were much too hot to stay in for more than a few minutes. And I also thought that $27 was a little too expensive for just a DIY scrub.

I'm not sure if it is on the other ships as I've only been on the Dream. The $27 for the scrub was on top of the $16/day for the rainforest room.

There are also packages for the rainforest room consisting of the entire week and for couples, I believe these prices were slightly less then the $16/day but I may be wrong so don't quote me on that.

In the brochure I still have that came with the scrub they have the following listed (note that these are only a few of what they offer):

SUGAR BASED ONES
Vanilla Orange Brown Sugar Scrub
Chocolate Peppermint Scrub
SALT BASED ONES
Lavender Herbal Salt Scrub
Tangerine Salt Scrub

As stated before they have an array of choices for you to choose from. In mine I have tangerine, vanilla, mint and brown sugar. I'm pretty sure lime and ginger were both chooses. They will put whatever you want into the scrub for you. I'd tell you how big the jar is but unfortunately it doesn't have the measurement listed anywhere.

In addition, they also give you a loofah pad to use and keep.

I'd love it if they had Coconut, key lime and chocolate. Oh wait, that's a candy!

is the srub something that can be preordered or do you have to wait till your on the ship? also, would you prefer the surgar basied scrub or the salt based scrub?
this looks like something i'd be interested in.
