Rainforest Room question

Last time we sailed on the Fantasy, before we sailed I bought 4 passes for the Rainforest room. My husband I and really enjoyed it, I went twice a day for the days I bought the pass. We are sailing again on the Fantasy. I was wondering if it makes sense to buy passes beforehand or wait until the first day? I would like a week pass, and my husband would like 3 passes.

What is the most economical thing to do? Thanks!

There's generally a deal on length-of-cruise pass once you get onboard. I pre-bought one day each, and plan on upgrading to the package when we get there. Enjoy!

We sailed on the Fantasy this past November. If you purchase the Rain Forest pass on-board, the price is $99 for a single or $149 for a couple for the week. They will add an 18% gratuity.

Different sense showers, 3 different saunas, two awesome hot tubs in open air and heated tile loungers that will melt your cares away.

I'd pre-buy the day passes, there have been reports that they aren't always available on board for purchase and then upgrade to the week long pass once onboard.

Just your swimsuit. It's all public space. There are robes for you to use also.

We always buy our length of cruise passes (7 or 4 day) once we board.

Thanks everyone! I think I'll buy my DH 2/3 day passes now, and then buy a week-long pass for myself once we board.

It became overly crowded during the early December Dream cruise.....I was surprised that many passes were sold.

I want to buy passes online. Do I really have to get the passes via a downloaded order form if I want them ahead of time? It seems rather archaic...isn't there a way to order online??

No -- Unfortunately you have to call DCL.
