  1. Honestly, I bet the reason answers are so varied on whether the thermal suite is cheaper pre-cruise or onboard has to do with how many they sell prior to the cruise. If they manage to sell a lot of packages prior to the cruise, then the special when boarding will be higher than online; whereas if they don't sell as many, then the special when boarding will be less expensive. So far, everyone I've read who purchased online but found it cheaper during boarding was able to get refunded the difference, so buying ahead of time seems to be the way to go to cover your bases.
  2. Do you know if they accept emailed copies of the documents rather than a fax? I find it strange that, in this day and age of technology, HAL (or any of the other CCL lines) will only accept faxes. Seems to me it would be much easier for them to accept scanned & emailed copies. Just my opinion, for what it's worth...
  3. Thanks, all! Upon further deliberation, I've decided to wait until I get on board. I might end up only purchasing day passes for the days I go, if available. Because the therapy pool on the Eurodam isn't very big, I'm not sure if it will be worth it to me. We'll see.
  4. Coming from the point of view of a Gen-Xer, the only benefit I see in using a TA for any travel is to save on the time it takes to research deals on hotels, flights, car rentals, cruises, etc. I'm one of those weirdos who likes doing this kind of research because it helps to build anticipation for the upcoming trip. These days, the internet makes it so easy to do everything online. The younger generation will be even more inclined to do it all themselves online because they have never known a time without the Internet. To them, having to call and speak to anyone about anything they want to spe
  5. Quick question that is slightly off-topic: Did the PCC give you the lower fare and onboard credit after you had made final payment or was it before? I've seen some specials come through on HAL's site after I've made final payment to my TA that I've wondered if I could have gotten if I had used a PCC.
  6. So, it sounds like I could go ahead and buy it ahead of time and if there is a different price I would be credited, right? Also, I noticed when I try to purchase online that it asks for a time. Did you have that as well when you purchased it online? If so, were you obligated to use the pass only at that time every day? Thanks!
  7. Question for those who like to use the Thermal Suite and Hydrotherapy Pool: Do you generally book your pass online before the cruise or pay for it during embarkation day? Is it cheaper to wait and do it during embarkation? I'll be going on a 27 day cruise at the end of September. Right now, it is $279 for 14+ days. I've heard they are discounted during embarkation, and in the past, that is when I generally book it. Has anyone purchased this during embarkation lately, and how much was it? Thanks!
