Men's Spa Facilities on Cruise ships: Which ones do you think are the best?


Recommended Posts

Any word on the Bliss steam rooms? Are they segregated for males and females?

When I was on the CxC Infinity, I did feel a bit uncomfortable being in the sauna with women.

Being from Los Angeles, some type of women just wait for an excuse and opportunity to cause trouble. (Nothing happened on that cruise, thankfully.)

Most times the "Persian garden" was fairly empty. But the ship did have a steam room for men in the locker area, with a cool window looking out at the sea.

Any one travel on Celebrity Millennium? Going on a Xmas Cruise and would love to learn more about any Sauna or Steamroom, Nice little get away from the family. 

Thank you

 

Way back on pg 31, post 764 I downloaded some pictures of the refurbshed Millennium men's sauna area. Also post 768 relates his experience. At least there is a men's only sauna!

Thanks Steve. I think the Splendor and the mariner are a similar size ship.Are the sauna and steam room a decent size?

We were on Navigator on a circumnavigation of Australia just before lock down and have to say the steam room was a joke. 2 person max and the sauna not a lot bigger, possibly 6 man at a push.

We tend to take longer cruises and I like to enjoy the spa time. 

 

Splendor and Mariner are two different classes of ship, and the steam room and sauna on Mariner are, I believe, somewhat bigger than those on Splendor. It's quite a different layout in the locker area.

Back to reality. I chated with Virgin. The Redemption Spa is entirely co-ed. Some nice options with a mud room, salt room, steam and sauna, heated marble slabs, multiple small pools of various temps, etc. The individual showers in the changing area are roomy, but no single-sex sauna or steam. Darn!

 

Hi guys,

 

Having just gotten off the Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady ship from Miami over a week ago, I can attest to a pretty lame Thermal Spa set-up on the ship. Yes, it's all co-ed and bathing suits are required. Most of the facilities are an open-concept with glass doors. Worse still is it's $39 per 3 hours slot that you have to reserve. So every 3-hours is a fresh batch of co-ed spa goers but when I visited, it wasn't busy at all - no more than 5 people in there. The good news is no social distancing nor masks are required.

 

I'll chime in later with the thermal spa experience on the NCL Epic Trans-Atlantic cruise I took just prior to this Virgin cruise.

 

Cheers,

Jerry

Really curious to hear about the Epic! It has a really unique thermal suite.

I’m not very tech savvy but can you make the top title row locked, so that as you scroll down you can still see the titles and categories?

Hi all - I’m confused about Royal's Adventure of the Seas.

 

Do the male and female sauna areas still exist?

 

I understand they may be temporarily closed because of covid, but are they still there outside the fitness center?

 

The ‘chart/database’ shows no but several of you have referred to them.

 

Thanks so much.

Yup, they're still there. I was on Adventure in August and saw them. Very large sauna and steam room! Look really nice when they're open.

Anyone on the Emerald Princess now and can let know of the sauna and steam is open.

Booked on a 10 day cruise leaving the 18th Jan and may cancel if they are closed especially as I hear they have canceled a port visit to Cartagena Columbia.

I'm thinking about booking a short break on  P&O's Ventura (departing in 3 weeks) but am wondering if the FREE sauna/steam rooms in the locker room areas are open?
As the cruise is from Southampton to Amsterdam & back (in Feb) I won't be sunning myself on deck so would like to get some heat in these facilities, if you have sailed recently & can update me on this I'd be grateful.

 

Thanks in advance.

I notice that the deck plans on Azamara ships show the steam rooms adjacent to both the fitness center and the spa. Does anyone know if the use of the steam rooms are free? (I may be mistaking separate hottubs for steam rooms in what appears to be the locker area.)

On the Emerald Princess now. Both the free Steam and Sauna in mens locker rooms are fully functional although very under utilized but have made a couple of new friends.
