Looking to Book a Disney Cruise? Needing some RELATION time? Wondering how fast can you visit the SPA – Read this!
Hey Guys, today I am talking about the Rainforest Room – Wait, what?? What the heck is that? Well its a part of the SPA area on a Disney Cruise Ship. The SPA on the ships can do all sorts of things; nails, hair-dos, wedding make-overs, teeth whitening, COOL sculpting, massages, acupuncture, etc. I even saw a Barber Shop with the complete Men’s Shaving treatment (going old-school). But one of the areas is the Rainforest Room – A little quaint, tranquil, slice of heaven. Again, its something I had seen and toured but never actually experienced – as I am usually too busy hanging out with the kids or joining a Trivia Game on the ship.
But for this ADULTS ONLY vacation I went on, Peace and Tranquil was the name of the game. I purchased a SINGLE DAY pass online, ahead of time. It was $18 for 1 FULL day of enjoying the Room. I do believe it was a few $ more to get while on the ship, so paying for it in advance was the way to go AND if you are thinking – 1 day? I want to go for my entire trip, then you can book that (but I think ONLY on the ship can you do that AND they usually have a deal going).
What can you do for 1 FULL day? Well you can pop in and out of the various Saunas – both cool (cold actually) and various degrees of warm to hot. You can sip Lemon infused water 🙂 You can enjoy the Ladies or Mens Locker room for a larger shower space (if using your stateroom shower isn’t cutting it). How about a dip or soak in the hot tubs OR you can lay and lounge in one of the warming tile chairs and relax, read, dream, think or even sleep.
I rather enjoyed my time in the Rainforest Room! I was disappointed that, at least on the Dream, the hot tubs were small (only 2-3 people) and they were often being used. Not that I want to hot tub with lots of strangers, I guess I wanted more options…but we are talking a cruise ship and they only have so much space. Now the VIEWS from the Hot Tub were breathtaking and I wish I had more time for the Rainforest Room, I wish we had a SEA DAY (we didn’t on this cruise) or perhaps were able to skip a dinner and just sit in the Hot Tub while enjoying the beautiful sea. Next time, next time. The longer cruises are for sure better for this, more time to relax, enjoy and just be. The Tile Lounge Chairs, however, that’s where its at!! Warm, toasty, relaxing – how can I get one for home?? Anyone?? My back needs that in our life 😉
In conclusion (to sound like my son who is learning how to write stories/paragraphs properly) I would book the Rainforest Room again, but only if I 100% knew I could enjoy it for longer than 1+ hours (like on a SEA DAY). Between eating Breakfast, going to port, then eating Lunch, changing to finally relax in the Spa, then showering and getting ready for the show, then dinner, then night-time entertainment – It was hard to fully enjoy it as I think its meant to be. Would be perfect for older couples, people with older kids who can entertain themselves and I did see several young adults enjoying the space. OR if you have kids that will leave you alone for a good part of the day – SCORE and please take my kids too 😉
**Do I sound like I am complaining, lol. Only 1-2 hours in the Rainforest Room, poor me. When I travel, I am also working…so its hard to stay in 1 space when I need to try to experience it all – so as I could have just ignored all my other duties and enjoyed the tranquil whisper of heaven…I had to get my booty of the Tile Chair, shower and go see the preview to Toy Story 4, then be ready for dinner. Next time, I will forget my watch and Oops…sorry lost track of time, lol.
Hope this helped you decide if a little quiet time is worth getting – Mahalo for reading – Nina
