Best time to use rainforest room?

We are going on the three night cruise in September! When we were on the cruise last time we didn't get a chance to use this but seem tempted this time. Is it worth doing on our short trip, if so what day should we do it?

You have 2 1/2 days to do this on a 3 night cruise. If you stay on the ship while in Nassau, that would be reasonable.

Embarkation day--bad. People coming thru on tours, opening door constantly, not terribly relaxing. Castaway day--ok if you want to miss island time.

Don't remember when they close, but seem to remember going in at 10pm and the place was empty. We used every thing and hit the sack no problem.

We are in the same situation...didn't use it on our first cruise (it was adults only so we REALLY should have). Going to be with the kids in Oct for a 3 night and wondering if it's worth trying to fit it in. But I like the idea of trying after Castaway Cay maybe? The girls could hang by the pool (they aren't that young) and we could have some quiet time before the show and dinner. Or, is everyone else going to be thinking the same thing and it will be too busy to relax?
Any opinions?
OP, thanks for posting this!!

I found the crowds came and went. I was on a 7 day cruise, and the first sea day there was no one there in the morning, but several of the days it was very crowded in the afternoons. I think there would be no one there over the dinner hours.

My daughter was using the spa to work out, and she could only go from 9-10 at night. She was the only one in the spa most of the time. One night they almost locked her in because they didn't know anyone was even in there.

I'm only speculating, but I would think that usage would differ on a longer cruise. If we had more time on the ship, especially sea days, then I might be more inclined to use the RR. Also, if I missed a show one night to go hang out in the RR, I wouldn't mind as much.

We just bought the package on a 3 night, and also did a Spa treatment. We only made it to the RF room once, so it was a waste. And, when we did go, all of the loungers were full (probably around 2pm) and we had to wait. I think if we hadn't wanted to do so many other things, but on a 3 night, your time is very limited.
I would like to try to do it again on a longer cruise.

We have never really been impressed with the Rainforest Room. The Spa services are great but the room alone is a waste of money

Is that on the Magic or Wonder? I have read that the Dream and Fantasy are major improvements.
