I really enjoyed it. I bought a weeklong pass for myself and my mom ($150) and my biggest problem was finding the time to do it everyday. BUT I was determined to do it every day, not only to get my money's worth, but to make sure I had that little bit of alone/relax time away from the kids. I wish I could have spent longer there, but there is so much to do during the cruise it is hard to fit that time in every day. I loved the showers and the heated loungers, and just sitting in the hot tubs overlooking the ocean. There is also a sauna and a steam room and a turkish bath (the steam room and turkish bath were too hot for me, but the sauna I could handle for a few minutes). I really did find it relaxing. I never found it very crowded at all.

My mom mainly used it for the heated loungers as she has a bad shoulder, back, etc, and she enjoyed reading a book or napping on the loungers!

This is the first time I've heard of this. I was hoping to wait until I was on board to see if I even have time.

Can you buy a 3 day pass on-line prior to the cruise, or just the one day? Can you buy 3 one-days or just the one at the discounted rate? Never been but thinking we "need" to for our September 7 Day Eastern Cruise.

It's not a discounted rate. Up until recently, on the ship or pre-sailing it was $16, and they usually had a cruise-long rate (4, 6, 7 days) where you would save a little. Just recently (for me on the Wonder at Christmas) and for several cruisers on the fantasy they started including body scrubs in the week-long pass ($9 each and for a week the package included 5) so it was $144 for one person, and the real deal is for 2 or more it was $190 or so.

Now on the Fantasy they are doing $27/day, which includes one scrub. If you want to do only one day, either buy it early for $16 or pay the $27/scrub. You can buy multiple passes online, but not the multi-day or the pass for two people.

Either call or fax the downloadable order form. You can't see it under excursions. Look where you order gifts for the room (beer packages, etc.) You will see it there.

Do you know how much it is for 2 people if you buy onboard? My DH and I did not have a good experience with the couples massage on our last cruise, so we're hoping to try something different and not so expensive if we end up not liking it.

My husband and I do the rainforest room every cruise. He loves the saunas and heated loungers so he can sit and be lazy for a while. He usually falls asleep on the loungers.

Thank you all for your input. I am still looking for the answer to this question...

If you book a massage, does use of the Rainforest Room come with it??

There is no discount for 2 unless you buy the pass for the entire cruise, and the pass for the cruise would depend on the number of days. For a 7 day, it used to be $99 for one, and about $150 for 2 people. On my christmas cruise on the Wonder (and the wonder/magic rainforest rooms are much smaller than the Dream/Fantasy) it was $144 w/5 scrubs for one, I think about $190 for 2 people.

If you are just interested in trying it for one day, buy 2 passes online before you go. Posted somewhere here I read that they will let you credit the online purchase to the weeklong.

I'm not entirely sure, just basing off recent experience but when we arrived on the ship and went to tour the spa knowing we had a massage the next day and told our guide, she added that relaxing in the rainforest room after the massage would be a great addition.

I know it completely was a sales pitch which we bought and used the rainforest room each day but that led me to believe it wasn't included in our massage.

So if you were doing the 4 night cruise on the dream and could only do one day...what day would you schedule your day pass for?

You don't have to schedule your pass for a particular day. You just take it in there when you want to use it and they will put a sticker on the back of your KTTW card with the date on it. You can come in and use it as many times as you want on that day.

engle: The Rainforest room is not included in any massages or other spa services.

Scrubs. Hmmm, never been to the spa (except for a horrid manicure with high-pressure sales pitch=never again) but the spa sounds great. Do you like the scrubs? Do you use them in the locker room showers?
