Red face Newbie!

This is a whole new world!
We have never been on a cruise, let alone a Disney cruise.
I've been excitedly scouring the internet for packing advice, etc.
Looking forward to experiencing the magic, and seeing what all the fuss is about!

I too am soooo ticklish that I don't think I could enjoy a massage. Except for a shoulder and neck message. I believe I would like that. But anywhere else on my body....forget it.

Glad you and your family will be joining us. Where are you from?
There will be three of us: me, DD(24), and my Aunt. We are from Southeastern Louisiana. Look forward to meeting everyone.

They may be calling the exotic rassoul something different these days, but I'm pretty sure that they still offer it. It's a couples thing where they give you a set amount of time in a spa area with a multi head shower, a steam room, and an assortment of every Elemis product you might want to try. Also, you get a bowl of mud to smear on each other. Other than getting you set up, no staff person is present, so it is up to you to make your own fun. Unfortunately, the steam is controlled from the outside, and it was just too much for us. I found it really draining, rather than invigorating.

I found a video of the bamboo massage on youtube, and it looks very relaxing. I may try it. The Thai poultice appeals to me, too. My husband used to avoid massage, but he's become more flexible these last few years. I would love to try the couples cabana massage at Serenity Bay, but he is in go mode the entire time we are on Castaway Cay and won't slow down long enough to try it out. We are usually among the last families being chased back onto the ship.

HeddyRuth, I found this on the DCL site, but only under the spa listings for the classic ships. It seemed popular and was fairly difficult to book, but they may not have put on the new ships.

"This sensual body treatment, applied by you, conditions and nourishes your skin while uniting the 4 fundamental elements of water, fire, earth and air in one spiritually uplifting experience. Aromatherapy massage oils are worked gently into the body, and then you're invited to spread various miracle healing muds of different colors and grain sizes onto your limbs. Body and soul are elevated to a place of ethereal bliss. In the privacy of a secluded chamber and steam room, you can make liberal use of decadent facial care products, exfoliating creams and more."

"Secluded chamber". I am telling you, sounds mysterious . I will look for the bamboo video too, thanks!

Yep! We were on a Disney cruise this past September to Canada and met on the Disboards. We became cruise buddies along with another couple that we will reconnect with on a cruise in October 2014! We have since met up a couple of times for shopping and lunch! We split costs of the rainforest room by sharing the couples package which we will probably do again as well as dining in Palo and sharing a cabana(hopefully) on Castaway Cay! She's my Disney BFF!

We are from Minnesota, and greatly looking forward to seeing the sun! It has been a long winter, and a gloomy spring/summer!
The kids can barely handle their excitement for the cruise. It will be here before we know it!

I hope you get warm weather soon. Here in Louisiana, we are already in the 90s with a heat index of over 100.

You are going to love a Disney Cruise. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise for my DD and myself, but my Aunt's 1st Disney cruise (although she has cruised on Carnival). I am so addicted to DCL! Can't wait to book another cruise while we are on this one. Just not sure when exactly we will go again (maybe 2015). We want to go back to Disney World in 2014, and although I did both this year (WDW in Feb. and DCL this Oct), it takes a lot out of the pocketbook in one year.

Makes it sound very Harry Potter, doesn't it?

We are staying four nights at Disney's Vero Beach Resort prior to the cruise, and they offer a mother/daughter facial with ice cream mani pedi. This could be a lot of fun, or none at all. She would love the mani pedi, for sure. Not so sure about the facial. Continuing to explore my spa options...

Oh this heat! And yours is the soupy kind! We lived in Oklahoma from 05-08 and have been in Texas since 09. You'd think I would have acclimated by now, but I just can't get used to this heat. My internal thermostat is set on Pacific Northwest, and likely always will be.

So fun! Though my husband is not jealous by nature, I am not sure he would be keen on my having a cruise BFF. Do you remember the rules on those rainforest passes? Do they have to be purchased on the first day? Are they couples only, or can I buy a single? I have used the amenities with a treatment, but never on their own, and think I might like to have a daily spa option this time.
