Default Ships with Thalassotherapy Pool?

Anyone know of any current cruise ships that have the equivelent of the X Mercury T-Pool?
May sound crazy to those who haven't tried them, but they are fantastic!
Last ship I was on that had a wonderful T-Pool was the X Mercury.
Thanks,
TnT

I think you will find them on the Millennium class ships of Celebrity.

NCL's Jewel class ships have thalassotherapy pools. (Jewel, Jade, Pearl & Gem. The Dawn & Star I beleive also have them. We have used the ones on the Jewel & Pearl and they have fantastic spas with the heated tiled loungers, mud room ( don't know the official name). You can get a pass for the length of your cruise for the spa area. (7 day, 10 day ect.) Love the T-pool!

It's the best, salt-water jetted pool. Very relaxing, and worth every cent if there is a charge on the ship you're sailing.
The experience is so much more than a regular jacuzzi type tub. Absolutely, no comparison. Very powerful jets. Usually has loungers to relax on in the water.
To experience a Thalassotherapy pool is to love one!
Happy Sailing,
TnT

Smile T-Pools

On the M-Class ships of Celebrity the T-Pool is the solarium pool. The jets are not as powerful as the Century Class but the pool size on the M-Class is quite large. There was no charge on the M-Class but we we last on an M-Class 5 years ago. We were on the Galaxy last year and Three years ago and enjoyed the T-Pool, the cost for the pool on Galaxy was $99 for the 11 nights.
The only issue I had with T-Pools was the affect the mixture had on the swim suits usually going through a couple per cruise.
I am not sure about the M-Class pools but I believe the Mercury may be the only one of the Century Class ones left.

I won't go on a ship without a Thalassotherapy pool!! LOL... The M Class of Celebrity ships have them, as does the RCCL Radiance of the Seas. Over 18 years old only on RCCL, which is nice and quiet and relaxing! Don't believe there is an age requirement on Celebrity. Most relaxing pool ever!!! I never had a problem with my swimsuits and chemicals of the pool at all. Warm and soothing..... and relax... and ah... geez... I could use one right now!

I have to agree - the T Pool is one of the best things around! I've had massages, been in indoor pools with jets and of course, in a hot tub. This was different, more relaxing. We were on a cooler cruise in November, and we both purchased the week long pass as recommended here on CC. The option to go everyday and just relax was so great. It was never crowded either, but I've heard they put a limit on how many people can buy a week long pass.

So glad I found this thread as I didn't know ships, other than Celebrity, even had them! Good news for me! Thanks!

SO and I spent a fair amount of time in the T-pool while on the Dream this year. So nice! I can say---the pictures make it look bigger than it is. Nonetheless, we really enjoyed it as well as the rest of the spa and our spa stateroom.
