Q about spa treatment & use of the Rainforest Room
 
DD and DH will be doing an excursion together in San Juan, leaving me with some time on the ship to myself. Yay! I'm going to try to book a massage in the spa and would like to use the Rainforest Room as well. Will I be able to use the RR if I have booked a treatment, or will I need to buy a 1-day pass separately?

Thanks in advance for any insight!

You will have to purchase the Rainforest Room separately. I asked on the Fantasy this past week.

Thanks for your reply! I completed online check-in last night, and it doesn't look like you can book the RR online the way you can other onboard activities. There is a form that has to be completed and either faxed or mailed to DCL. Seems like a strange way to do it! I haven't decided whether I'll go that route or just wait until I'm onboard.

You can pre-buy the RR one day pass ahead of time. It's listed under the onboard gifts/shopping section. You can either fax your order or call them and they'll give you your confirmation number right then.

I think some of the spa treatments include use of the RR.

I've read that you can only purchase the one-day passes ahead of time and once on board you have to purchase the weekly pass. I purchased my one-day pass via fax to make sure I have it.

Some of the other posts on the DIS seem to indicate that this is inconsistent between ships and with whichever provider you get. Sometimes they ask you to wait in there beforehand, sometimes not. If you want to be sure you get to see the rainforest room, buy the pass in advance.

There are some spa treatments that include "30 minutes in the rainforest." This is different from the unlimited day pass, but I've never seen anyone enforce it.

Also, they SAY that you have to purchase single day passes in advance, but I've never been denied after boarding. They will certainly try to sell you a length of cruise, multi-day, or couples pass after boarding, but they've always been happy to charge my KTTW card for a single day while on board!

And finally, they have further confused the issue on some cruises by making comments like "would you like to wait for the therapist in the rainforest?" while not making it clear whether they are using this as a waiting room or are intending to charge me. Since it wasn't clear, I responded that I'd wait in the lounge area (Magic.)

On the classics when we started cruising a few years ago, we were offered that if you had a spa treatment then you could use the room that day. On the new ships this has not been offered to us and when we asked we could have purchased the day pass or the whole cruise pass. Steiner may have changed the rules seeing as how the rainforest room amenities have increased with hot tubs and such, on the Dream class ships.

And for a time there was a 1/2 price use of rainforest for the day with any "hands on" treatment.....but that was some years ago.

Thank you!
 
Thanks to all for your responses. I'm going to call to order my 1-day pass, just to be on the safe side!

I'm not a spa kind of gal, but I prepaid for 2 days in the Rainforest on the Fantasy, am I ever glad that I did. Most relaxed I've ever been. It was too cool and windy on Castaway Cay for me, so my dh and I headed to the Rainforest. Heaven!

WDWChloe 12-25-2012 08:35 PM

What is the pricing for a 1 day RR pass? Or even multiple day?
It looks heavenly. :goodvibes

LyndaC 12-25-2012 08:51 PM

currently a one day rainforest pass is $15 + a $1 "service charge"

Lisa46xx 12-26-2012 01:47 PM

I just spoke with DCL about buying a rainforest pass ahead of time vs on the ship, and the rep told me that there is no need to pre-purchase. She advised me to go to the spa on the first day and purchase the pass for whichever day(s) I want.
