Rainforest Co-Ed Question

Since the rainforest is co-ed I'm wondering if DH and & I can actually go into the showers together? I've looked at photos of the showers and the spa area but I didn't know if it's tasteful since there are no doors or curtains for privacy. Or at least I didn't see any. I didn't actually know that it was co-ed until just recently so I wasn't sure how that would work. It's not that we would be doing anything kinky but some people already are frowning because it's co-ed. What would be appropriate in this case?

I guess you could, but they aren't that big and they only run for about 30 seconds. Oh, and no curtain. The space on both classes of ships is very open.

The area is very open. There is no privacy in the RR on any of the ships.

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

Yes, you must wear swimsuits.

DH & I go into the RR showers together. All rated *G* activities. We just really like each other's company and we like to share experiences. There was plenty of room for both of us. (we are both average size)

So I guess you do not bring any soap or shampoo with you, what is the purpose of the showers anyway?

The showers are mostly to rinse off sweat after sitting in the saunas and other hot areas.

Shampoo, soap and conditioner are provided in all showers.

They weren't on the Fantasy. Only in the locker rooms.

Clueless here... I thought the rainforest room showers were more of a spa type experience. Different temperatures and shower spray experiences (for lack of a better word) rather than a shower I wash in???? At least that's what I thought I was going to get if I purchased the pass?

That is how it was explained when we took the tour. I didn't use them too much. But I did love the hot steam room and the heated lounges.

The showers in the rainforest room are different from the locker room showers where one would find soaps, shampoo etc and are not coed. The rainforest showers are kind of in nooks and crannies around the center of the rainfôrest room and are labeled with whatever they are. I don't recall the exact names but there is a cold one, an aroma therapy type one etc.. I think there may be some peppermint soap type stuff on the wall but it is more of an invigoration experience You can't adjust the showers really. It's fun to try. HTH

Yes. You are correct. It is *sight*, *sound*, *feel*, & *aroma* therapy. Each one is different. Some are warm, some are cold. They are an experience to enjoy.

If you want a shower w/ soap, shampoo...., use the showers in the locker room. These are bigger and better than the ones in the staterooms.
