Hi there, my fiance and I are planning a destination wedding through Carnival and will be sailing on the Dream. We're trying to decide between a regular suite or, for $440 more, a Cloud9 Spa suite. I can't find anything online that explicitly details what is included in the Spa package, other than unlimited access to the T-pool. Can you tell me what all was included? Do you think it was worth it?

Thanks!

Holland America. Rotterdam has a T Pool. We did it in Alaska and I sat in it as we cruised through the glaciers. It is situated at the front of the ship and has huge picture windows and a private deck.. It is my happy place!

Added this to our week at sea this year for $225 a couple. Included was unlimited use of the pool, heated spa rooms with tile chairs dry, and steam, steam room with aroma, locker rooms and showers, and relaxation room with tea and lemon water.

The Celebrity Millennium class ships have the most amazing, Free, adults only solarium thalassotherapy pool / health cafe environment. First the T-pool is large and deep. Hot tubs are usually very shallow. You slid around with chlorine bubbles burning eyes and they dont give the same relief from gravity that a large deep warm saltwater pool gives. The temperature is a comfortable heat so you can really relax for a long time, not boil your skin and have heart explode in 2 minutes. There is a lot of room to find a spot to yourself and enjoy the type of jet, bubble or water shooting from sky you choose without crawling over someone (ok, I guess that could be fun in rare circumstances). It has a real pool feel unlike some of the others which feel more like a tiled above-ground backyard pool inside a room with a ladder entrance and some jets. It is surrounded by cushioned lounge chairs to relax and listen to the quiet movement of the pool water reflecting from the solarium ceiling while eating grilled salmon and cardamom soaked apples from the heath cafe. I like that the solarium environment is available to enjoy 24 hours a day even though the pool closes (around 11pm I think) unlike the other ships T-pool environments that close up when the spa closes up. I enjoy that it is a regular open access area for people watching while soaking unlike the small, confined spaces of pay per day facilities that sometimes gets loud with all the talking in that small closed space. Has anyone found a T-pool environment better than the Celebrity M-class? I would love to experience it because that is my favorite activity on a cruise. (I do like the free T-pool in the gym of Voyager class ... big and deep with stair entrance (not ladder) good people watching in a large open space but has limited jet options and closes with gym.... I cant get myself to go on a Freedom class because they turned the T-pool into a boxing ring) I am tempted to try Solstice class if the solarium pool really is comfortably warm......looks like a nice environment... and same with the RCCL radiance class solarium pool.. would love if good heat in pool.

I'm curious about Solstice class too, specifically Reflection. Hoping they have a good T-Pool!

I believe that MSC has them on if not on all of their ships...

Unhappy Reflection

Dugknight -

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but no T-pool on the Reflection.

Default Aqua Spa Veranda Cabin - Celebrity Reflection

Has anyone experienced the Aqua Spa Veranda Cabin on the Celebrity Reflection? Does it include free access to the Solarium Pool? I know it includes dining in the Spa Restaurant Blu and access to the heated loungers - - but all I'm really interested in is access to the spa pool indoors. Any advise you could share would be very appreciated. The difference in price for me (I'm a solo traveler) is about $700 between the regular Veranda Cabin and the Aqua Spa Cabin. Thanks!

The pool you're referring to is free for everybody. I just got off of Reflection a few weeks ago. I enjoyed Aqua class, but not sure I'd do it as a single cruise and for $700. Blu is great and I loved the fresh iced tea and canapés every evening!
