Thermal Suite- Couples Pass

Recommended Posts

The revamped spa services section on cruise personalizer lets you book a couples pass for the thermal suite for $219 for a 7 day cruise on the Regal.  Has anyone recently booked the thermal suite on the ship? Just wondering what the cost was on the ship vs pre-booking?

 

THANK YOU

following along. i'm pondering it for my cruise.

 

what is silly, is in my personalizer, i see options for 7 day cruise and 5 day cruise.  it's a 5 day cruise.  so clearly they have some kinks to rule out, unless i can stay on board for 2 more days lol

I've never known it to be available to pre purchase, but I just checked my current reservation and there it is!

I don't recall the on the ship price.  Plus they add gratuity to it.  So, $251.85 per couple for 7 days.

Will you really use it enough to make it worthwhile to spend so much money on a week pass.  An unlimited pass is given when you book a suite.  I think the most we have gone is twice during a five week cruise.       I would not recommend it on a Christmas or other holiday cruise.  Those are the only cruises that it is packed    I don't get real excited about about the bed/benches and only can last 15 minutes at the most. .  First time I used it, there were two gentleman on each side of me.  It made me very uncomfortable.  I know in some countries it is no big deal but I would prefer a woman's only room.  After the first time, I have only gone with my husband.  We also hardly ever use it in warm climates.   We have noticed that some people use the benches as a bed to read books and the staff said some stay for hours.    I don't know how much it is for a single visit but I think I would try it before getting a weekly pass unless you use something like it in other locations.    Who knows - we may be the odd balls

That's a good price for it. On our Regal cruise they didn't offer a couple special and we paid 159 each for the week. We got our moneys worth. We went at least once a day for the saunas and the thalassotherapy pool. We find it quiet and relaxing.

I guess I am mixed up.  I am thinking of the Thermal suite.   The enclave is on the newer ships - Royal -Regal, etc. and They have no Thermal suite.  I have never been to the enclave.  That is not included in the suite perks.

Just got off the Royal. The couple pass for 3 nights was 64.80 give or take 5.00 we used twice a day also called the enclave.

We have learned to check the temperature of the thermal beds on the first day before deciding to buy a pass. On our last few cruises they have been luke warm and just not that enjoyable. Complaints to the desk did nothing.

I don’t recall them adding a gratuity to the pass when I purchased it.  They very well could have and I just don’t recall right now.  Have they always added a gratuity?

I don't recall any gratuity and feel that the website reference may be generic to the other spa services where a person is performing services--just my thought

We found the same thing when we have been on both the Royal and Regal in past years--our most recent trip on the Royal there were two beds that were lukewarm in some parts and the rest were hot in all zones--I agreed complaints to desk do nothing--we have found that best approach is to complain directly to hotel manager who will get on Spa Manager but typically these issues do not fully resolve until a dry dock occurs

For those who have used this Couples Pass - this may seem like a dumb question, but believe it or not I can't get a straight answer from Princess - can either person go alone, or must they go as a couple?

 

Adding to the confusion, when you pre-purchase this through the Personalizer it only allows you to select one person's name. So only one guest's name is on the "Couples Pass" in the Spa Reservations & Payment section.

Can definitely use alone or together. The term couple’s pass really means “discount if you buy two together.” Which makes me wonder...can a couple’s pass be bought by any two passengers traveling together, eg mom, daughter, to take advantage of the discount?
