Do you know if they have "special" pricing if you purchase a multi-day pass?

If you really want a day pass you really should buy it before you go. We were on the 14 day Wonder this past month and they did NOT sell any 1 day passes, only 2 week long ones. Only people who had bought 1 days online had them. So do NOT count on waiting to board the ship and get them.
We always get the full weekly pass, DH and I love it in there. The two week was $300 for the two of us. we bought it the first day. They only sell 30. They don't want it too crowded in there. We were there first thing and heard lots of people ask to buy 1 days and they were all told no sorry.
I did see that they let a few people in who were waiting on spa stuff, but it wasn't every day. Maybe just when it wasn't as busy. Usually people were waiting in the locker rooms. They are nice as well, they have showers and a sanua.

Hmmmm...now I'm not sure what to do. The CM on the phone today told me "they don't sell out." On the Dream last year, DH and I definitely bought the 1 day pass when we boarded.

Maybe it the pass was more popular on the 2 week so no 1 days. You just never know. If you really want to do it I wouldn't wait. But it may be offered as well. If you will be sad about missing out I would pay the extra $1. It's well worth it.

They do sell multi-day, couples passes, and length of cruise passes on board...and they always tell the story that they only sell 30 "length of cruise" passes. Bottom line, they've never refused to take my money when I wanted to buy a pass regardless of the length. I've never seen the rainforest so busy that it was a pain, although some cruises are busier than others. Sometimes you can't get one of the lounge chairs, especially if someone is taking a nap.

A length of cruise pass is priced so that it is only a good deal if you use it every day. A couple's pass is typically a great deal. The 3,4,5 day passes on 7 night cruises are a savings off single day passes, and give you the flexibility to choose your days.

My personal experience has been that in cooler weather, I love the rainforest. Hot weather, I'll be outside more.
