My husband's insurance gives us back 80% of the money we spend on Registered Massage Therapists, providing they give us written proof. Does anyone know if Holland America's are?

According to this link, (http://www.theonboardspa.com/page/Gl...herapists.aspx) it doesn't appear to be necessary, but that doesn't mean that some are more qualified than others. The challenge is registered by what authority?

Our insurance also provides the same coverage. I would suggest that you contact your insurance company to find what limitations are on the coverage.

He did that, and they responded that as long as we get written proof that they're certified we'll be fine.

They are employed, and trained, by Steiners of London and "sub-contracted" to HAL, as are all the other staff inside the Greenhouse Spa. Suggest you contact Steiners
