When to buy Rainforest Room day passes?

Hi everyone! Last time we did the RF room, I bought our day passes before we left for the cruise. This time I would like to see the prices for a 7 day pass at their open house. Can I buy single day passes onboard(if I don't go with the 7 day)? Thanks a lot!

In Dec on the fantasy they said NO single day passes would be sold onboard 9we tried twice). Said ppl were complaining when they didn't recognize day-passers? ugh! Typical DCL-busybody

Thanks for the heads-up! I guess I'll have to decide and buy(day passes) before we go.

No problem! I've been to the rainforest room on the fantasy but not the classics. It's totally worth the $16ish! And you can go in/out for the day. There are like 3 sections. The saunas and themed showers (LOVE the showers!!!!!!!!!), the tiled loungers, and then the hot tubs overlooking the water. Bliss!!!

Where do you (pre-cruise) purchase the day passes for the Rainforest Room?

On line? If so- where do I find it? Thanks!

2012 prices on a 7 night were $99 for the length of cruise pass, $149 for couple's 7 night. This was the "regular" rainforest, not the "enhanced" that included the scrubs. They also sold a 3 day pass for $45 on our Fantasy cruise.

When was this? In June they sold me a day pass but in Dec they said NO. Policy seems to be changing a lot around these...

When you buy a Rainforest Room day pass before you board, can you use it on whichever day you want? So I don't have to decide which day(s) I'm going to go before I start the cruise?

On the Wonder at Christmas (7 days) it was $149/wk with the scrubs, but no other options offered. I think they did begin selling day passes too but claimed they 'might not'.

If you want to pre-order a day pass, you do it on line in the section where you order chocolates, flowers, plush toys for your room on arrival.

What is stupid about the argument that people complained about not recognizing 'day pass' people is that as long as they keep selling them in advance, there will be day pass people and they won't be recognized by those who have been there all week if they don't use their pass until the last day. The spa also would have no control over the number of people in the spa if 45 people bought them on line and all decided to use them on the last day.

What did they mean they weren't "recognised"?? As in, a personal greeting when they walked in to the spa???

We did the 1-day pass on the Magic last year and LOVED it, and we'll definitely be pre-purchasing the 1-day pass for the Fantasy next year.

If I recall correcty, when we toured the spa on the first day, the attendant told us that we could convert our 1-day pass into a length of cruise pass if we wanted to; they'd apply the cost and charge us the difference.

Uhhh, no.

Like busybody DCL spa guests would be all "HEY who is that person in here? I don't recognize them from this week!" and complain.

That's what they told me... not saying it's the real reason. I doubt it is.

EXACTLY... wth?!

Reminds me of one time when we were on the elevator and my husband or I was wearing a shirt from Nassau and a gold CC lanyard. This rude guest poked him in the back and declared that we shouldn't be allowed to earn gold on 3 nights. I just blinked at her because all of the replies that shot into my head would've started a fight. Funny thing is, the Nassau shirt was from a 7-night cruise on NCL. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, PEOPLE!
