Hot Tubs on the Fantasy

We stay far away from the pools and family hot tubs on cruise ships

My DH has back issues and hot tubs make a big difference. It would be great for him to have some hot tub time every evening before bed.

Is the adult hot tub busy on the Fantasy in the evenings in your experience? I know on the Dream people are always walking by since the adult area is kind of a main thru-way. I am assuming the Fantasy is the same.

Does the adult hot tub have the glass floor? I think so but just checking.

Might he be better off with a weeklong rainforest pass? If he went this route I know he would take advantage of the saunas too.

Do the rainforest hot tubs have glass bottoms? I am thinking not but want to know for sure.

Are the rainforest hot tubs any hotter?

Might the rainforest hot tubs have less use and possibly be a little more sanitary????

Thanks!

can't talk about the rainforest ones but the adult area hot tubs are not bad. they are larger and do have the glass bottom, although seeing down is difficult. I have found that they are not utilized as much in the evenings, that's when I like to use them. also, if your dh has any issues getting in and out of hot tubs, these have great handles and longer stairs so you have plenty of room to maneuver.
hope this helps with the adult area ones.

I wondered about that. Saw they had the bottom you could see through, but then once the water starts moving around or getting filled with bubbles it didn't seem like it would be much of a window.

We usually go with a rainforest length of cruise pass. But to answer your questions.; the rainforest hot tubs are much smaller that the ones in the adult area, we've never noticed them to get much use (note we've never used the hot tubs past 7:30 pm or so). I would say that the temperature in both areas is about the same. And no they don't have glass bottoms, but they do have excellent views. We love the Rainforest, the saunas are great also.

And only part of the hot tub has a glass bottom - more like a window. Do you not like the window in the hot tubs? We have found the adult hot tubs to be clean.
