Spending some time at the Rainforest Spa is an excellent way to indulge in a little relaxation while on board. The first day of your cruise is the best time to take a tour of Senses Spa & Salon which includes a look inside all the treatment rooms, the Rainforest Spa, the Quiet Room, and lockers rooms. It’s best to purchase your tickets to the Rainforest Spa following your tour since only a certain amount are sold each day. A single day pass is $16 or multiple day passes are available. You can come and go as often as you like on the day that you buy tickets. Adjacent to the Spa’s front desk is this serene seating area with a gorgeous view of the ocean.
The Rainforest Spa is for both men and women over the age of 18 and swimsuits must be worn. Robes and sandals are provided. Sea days are when the Rainforest Spa is at its most crowded but when the ship is in port you’ll practically have the entire place to yourself. When you walk through the doors to the Rainforest Spa, to your direct right is a small nook with crisp white towels and chilled water.
To your left are three rainforest showers but we were very disappointed that one was broken and the other two only sprayed icy cold water. We felt perhaps a discount should have been offered since these showers were a main draw for us. Just past the showers are three steam rooms. The one shown in the picture below contains very hot but completely dry air and has a floor to ceiling window providing an abundance of natural light. To the left of this sauna is a hot room so full of steam that we could barely see and to the left of that is the last room which has significantly less steam.
Straight through the towel nook and rainforest showers is this small room consisting of 10 heavenly chairs which hug your body while keeping you slightly toasted. Over head are convenient reading lights. Again, I don’t recommend visiting the Rainforest Spa on sea days because all these chairs will be occupied. There is a sliding door at the foot of these chairs that leads to two outdoor hot tubs that come with a spectacular view.
There are men’s and women’s locker rooms that have lockers, restrooms, a small steam room, and showers. The shower stalls are large and toiletries are provided.
The Quiet Room is across the hall from the Rainforest Spa and this is where clients sit and wait to be called for their treatment. We were told that you are welcome to sit in there on the comfortable leather chairs and drink some of the tea that is provided, but we were disappointed that several people in there were very loud which distracted from the relaxing experience.
Although we were dissatisfied with the malfunctioning rainforest showers, we would recommend the spa to anyone looking for a relaxing experience.
