If you have an appointment in the spa do you still need a rainforest pass to go in there?

I think this saved me some money. Doesn't really look like it's worth paying for, for us anyway.

Maybe the single day pass would help you decide

Do they have prices for just one person?

Are the showers divided or co-ed? I'm wondering if this would be a good place to grab a shower while the rest of the family is getting ready in the stateroom.

You could use the showers in the men's locker room.

Do you have access to the Rainforest Room if you have a spa treatment? Or is it additional? Also, how much is the day pass on the ship? Can I decide if my son is sleeping to just go and purchase a pass and enjoy for an hour? I don't think I can plan ahead to use it until the time comes.

When we were on the Magic it was 16.00 per day/per person. You could buy it directly from the spa counter, for the day or the week.
The spa was co-ed, But NOT the showers.
One of the reasons I like to get the pass, is to use it to shower, while the DH & DS is using the shower in the room. I've never seen it crowded in 2 cruises, but like most things I'm sure there is a "peak" time.
If you have a spa treatment it is not included, UNLESS you buy one of the inclusive deals.
IMO it's one of the better deals aboard the ship. Those loungers are to die for!

The showers in the rainforest room are Co-Ed. Those are more for the hot/cold/scented/sound experience than bathing. You are required to have your suit on the whole time in the rainforest room.

The showers in the locker rooms are obviously not Co-Ed, but also do not require a rainforest pass. Anyone can just come in and use the locker room for any reason. The showers are way bigger than the room and you can use the products in the locker room for your lotion, skin care, hair etc when getting ready. It was nice to have some space once or twice during the cruise while showering.

The Rainforest room on the Wonder is much smaller than on the Dream/Fantasy. No hot tubs. There are several rain showers, a dry sauna, two steam saunas, 4 stone loungers and then another stone bench.

I asked about the cost of a 2 week pass and someone said it was expensive. The one week is usually $99, but at Christmas on the Wonder it was $144, which included some salt/sugar scrubs and the plain $99 was not offered. I'm expecting the 14 day pass to be $200 for one and $300 for 2.

Several on this thread have asked if you need a rainforest pass to use the 'showers' to get ready for the evening. No. There are 2 showers in the locker rooms (2 in women's; assume 2 in mens) and anyone can use these any time the spa/gym is open (6 am to 10 pm). The rainforest showers are different, and while there was shampoo and stuff in the ones on the Wonder, I heard not on the Dream/Fantasy. But these are co-ed showers so you'd need a suit.

On the Wonder, there is also a dressing room where you can do your hair, etc. and there is a dry sauna in there too. There is not a ton of room, so if more than 5 people were trying to get ready it would be bad.

Are scented lotion, etc used in the Rainforest Room? I have severe contact allegies to fragrance and have stayed away because of them. I would like to try but don't want itchy rash for the entire cruise.

Can outside beverages be brought into the rainforest room. Like drinks from the bar or coffees from Cove Cafe?

I think you'd have trouble. One of the saunas has a citrus scent to it, there are flowers and rose petals around the room, and the showers had very scented shampoo, conditioner, soap. I was the one who bought the week with scrubs (had to; no option to just do the $99 'plain' option on our sailing) and those were fragrant too.

Thank you so much for your suggestion. I went and viewed several videos and I am IN LOVE I don't think DH will be able to get me out of the hot tubs with that AWESOME ocean view

Also saw a few videos on Satellite Falls will be spending some time up there as well.
