We were just on the Wonder January 14, 2013. I bought two day passes, one for myself, one for my hubby before we left. During the cruise I decided I didn't want to go (just not my thing), but my husband's friend wanted to. The spa let our friend buy a one day pass on each sea day, and they let my husband use his and mine. The cruise was NOT crowded at all, so this could be why.

too many WDW trips to mention, 2007 Wonder Concierge, January 2013 Wonder Concierge, March 2014 Walter E. Disney Suite (finally!!!!)

It's co-ed right? That's the only reason why I haven't bought one yet on all my cruises...I'm used to non co-ed spa areas . . . .

DH and I always get the couples pass for the length of the cruise. We have used the RF room on the Magic and Dream. It is a nice place to relax and unwind (and take a nap!) DH's favorite room is the Caladarium - the extra hot and steamy room! I can only last about 5 minutes in there!

It is co-ed. However, I've always found it to be a really relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is in robes or swimsuits (for the whirlpool and aroma therapy showers). People are reading(or napping) in the heated tile loungers(my absolute favorite). I find it to be a much more enjoyable than most pools I go to.

How is the availability of heated loungers on the Fantasy? On the Wonder, I was only able to use the loungers once because they were always full and people seemed to stay in them for a long time.

I didn't have problems on the Fantasy. They are in their own "room" there... like a solarium inbetween the hottub room and the sauna/showers room.

Ppl fall asleep and snore sometimes tho - NOT relaxing LOL

I think it depends on the day and time you go. Mornings worked for us. Also, if there is a port you're not interested in(Nassau for us), that seems to be a good day to go. I understand sea days can be very busy.

Maybe I missed the answer but I too was wondering if you prepurchase the single day pass, do you have to choose the day in advance or can you use it at any time?

I just booked day passes via phone two days ago and had to tell them which day I wanted.

I called about six weeks ago to get one for our cruise on the Fantasy next month. I asked if I needed to specify a day, and I was told that I did not. It's frustrating that we are getting conflicting information. Some are told they can buy single day passes while onboard, others are told they can't. Some are told you have to specify the date when ordering a 1-day pass ahead of time, some are told you don't. Frankly, the fact that you have to either fax a form or call DCL seems odd to me. Why can't you just buy your passes the same way you book spa treatments and excursions??

You're taking all of their fun away--you and your logic.

Thanks for the laugh! When you get right down to it, I'll jump through whatever hoops DCL puts in front of me. I'm sure my time in the Rainforest Room will be worth the minor inconvenience of obtaining a pass!

Anyone know what the cost of a Rainforest Pass on the Transatlantic is?

We love the RF room!
