Spa or Manicure Services for Kids?

We are going on our first cruise in July Do they have any special type spa services for kids? I thought I read a post one time about an ice-cream pedicure for kids. DD is 11 so too young for the teen spa, but I know she'd love something geared towards the kids like that.
Thanks!

yes...

On the May 8 Dream sailing, my daughters (8 and 6) did the ice cream mani-pedi party. It was in the common room of the Chill Spa (a little small), and each child had a chair and the spa gals brought in foot tubs for each child. They got to choose ice-cream scented scrubs/lotions and then had ice cream at the end. There were four girls present, oldest was maybe 10??? The price was $65/child plus gratuity. The gals from the spa were so friendly and chatty with the girls, and when my 6 year old was afraid to do the lotions and filing, they did just the polish on her fingers and toes and reduced the cost on the spot. (Very nice gesture, I thought) Overall, lots of fun. If your 11 year old is on the mature side, she might prefer an 'official' treatment at the Chill Spa (I could see them making an exception age-wise, but that is just my opinion). No matter what you choose, she will LOVE it!!!

Have a wonderful time, and be sure to treat yourself to some spa time as well!!!!

That sounds like something my DD would LOVE! How did you find out about it? Was it in the navigator or advertised via the spa? We are on the dream in LESS THAN 2 WEEKS!!! (5/29).

I don't remember if it was in the Navigator, I found out about it when I went to the spa for one of my treatments. They actually have some really good specials if you go there and look at the 'specials' sign in the Spa Lobby. I had booked something with the spa representative in the Concierge Lounge, and then when I went to the spa itself, I noticed the specials and they were exactly what I was looking for! They let me switch services.

I believe the do the ice cream mani-pedi party several times throughout the cruise.

You will have a WONDERFUL time!!

Thanks! I have my CC Cabana massage booked for 1st day on CC (double dip cruise) but I am ALWAYS up for additional spa services if they are a 'special' that doesn't cost me hundreds and hundreds of dollars! I will be checking them out the first evening right after dinner!!!!

My DD(5) had a mani/pedi on the Wonder on the first Alaskan. It was $65. It was basically the same as an adult version...she even got to sit in the comfy chair and get the footbath and leg rub. She really enjoyed it and loved showing off her nails that were done just like mom's!

That's great to hear. Did you just book it when you got onboard? I had thought that kids weren't allowed in there -- my DD would be thrilled with something like that!

I would love to know this as well. We'll be on board in just a few weeks.

A "Princess" mani and/or pedi is available for kids in the Vista Salon (not spa) on the Wonder and Magic. It's not advertised, and you have to ask for it at the salon on board. It is a huge treat for the young 'uns. My 10 yo daughter was the only child in the salon when Pluto arrived (and tried to do her toes...!)

Honestly - the Princess Package for the girls for $65 in my opinion was not worth it. Yes it was cute and yes she enjoyed it but I thought $65 was a little much for it. I thought it should have been no more than $35 for what they did. I would have even been ok with $45 but $65 to me was a little steep. This was one of the ONLY things that I felt like I didn't get my monies worth on.
