  1. found a picture of the Vista to show sauna's layout/size.
  2. Just from memory but approx 20 feet past the spa reception desk you will find the gym entrance on the right side. Directly across from the gym entrance is a small hallway. From the desk turn left to enter the hallway (right to enter gym). Standing just inside the mens locker door: -the wall you are facing (10-15 feet away?) has sinks/towels directly ahead of you, lockers to the right (you can't see lockers from the door), a bench in front of lockers. -the door to the sauna is on the wall to your left, maybe 10 feet ahead. It is a glass door but you cannot see into the sauna from the
  3. As of November 2019 the NCL Gem still had huge sauna, small steamroom, single person whirlpool n the mens only portion of the spa. There are also 2 or 3 glass doored showers, a larger curtained accessible shower as well as a wide open, single cool down shower in the center of the room. This is already a "for fee" area so I can't imagine them getting rid of it unless they decided to renovate and go full co-ed. The free steam room in the gym locker room was still there as well as the glass doored shower right outside of the steamroom.
  4. I'd love to hear more about the experience of such a long cruise even if it was cut short. It is on my bucket list for sure. I am in a small, invitation only group who like to chat about past cruises, spa visits etc. If interested send me an email. tugger99 at live dot com (or look at my signature)
  5. My email is in my signature if you want to drop me a line and I'll share upcoming cruises. I also have a group elsewhere, just a few of us who chat, invite only etc.
  6. Sad and silly to hear about the bathing suit required signs posted on the Jade. I will stick to wrapping a towel around when I walk and sit on it in sauna, maybe one covering my lap just to satisfy the prudes. My last cruise on the Gem there were no signs but will see if they are on her as well my next Gem cruise in November. Last Gem cruise there were no signs but 90% of all guys wore trunks anyway. Me and one other guy sat on towels, another couple guys would wrap towels tightly, everyone dressed for the pool! I got several odd looks walking from shower area t
  7. Both the sauna and steam rooms have windows on the Spirit class ships BUT they are frosted so you can't see out of them. You can see the shadows of people walking past the windows so guess they had no choice to frost them. Steam room has 2 tiled benches facing each other, each bench sits 2 or 3 comfortably, 4 if you squeeze in. Sauna has a 2 tiered bench on right hand side that faces the sauna heater. Each bench would hold 3 people but if 3 on top bench their feet might prevent 3 on bottom bench. In my experience it was rare to see more than 3, maybe 4 guys in either at one time.
