    Does it cost anything to use the Fitness Center exercise equipment on the Dream and Fantasy? Can you walk in any time just to use equipment?

    Many thanks.

    If I remember right - opens at 6 am. Not sure what time it closes. For the size, very complete.

    Free, but nobody under age 18 is allowed in. Always thought that odd on a family cruise line that there aren't any hours for those under 18.

    I used it n the Dream. There was one father and son that I saw several times. The son was maybe 12... No one said anything to him.

    I was going to say, maybe they have the caveat that most gyms have that under 18s are only allowed with a parent/guardian. That just makes common sense from a safety perspective.

    The gyms here market heavily to Junior and High School kids (especially those involved in school sports ) so the age restriction to be alone is 12 here. The kids start streaming in alone after school lets out.
    I know on our Disney cruise on the Magic my then 16 year old was not allowed in the gym even if I was with him. He was disappointed as we were cruising the end of December/beginning of January and wanted to keep his pre-baseball season conditioning going.

    They do not have that rule. Under 18 can only be there from 9-10 at night through the Vibe, not with their parents. My daughter went with the vibe the first night, and then just went by herself because no one else wanted to go but the time had been okayed, but only from 9-10 pm (our dinner time so she left dinner every night) and worked out. She said there was NEVER anyone else there, and in fact she almost got locked in one night because the staff didn't even know she was there.

    I think it is ridiculous that they have no work out place for teens, many like my daughter who play year round sports and like to work off those desserts and heavy meals, and just like to work out on a treadmill or with the weights. I understand during the heavy traffic times in the mornings to have it adult only, but why not let the teens have the evenings?
