How late are the fitness centers typically open to?

Just off Grandeur of the Sea Dec 3 cruise your above info is correct about her mens spa.I just came off of the Enchantment and there were "NO" steam rooms or saunas. They propose a "steamed" shower, thats it. They were taken out some time ago. Boring cruise!!!!!
Some additional informations about the spa facilities onboard other cruise ships not mentioned before (if I'm not wrong):The Enchantment does NOT has a sauna or steam room for men. The only had a "steam shower" for one. BORING!!!! I know this is an older post but wanted to clear the air......
-Costa Pacifica, Serena, Concordia, Luminosa & the new Costa Deliziosa: thermal suite (parte of the so called Samsara Spa). Co-ed and extra charge (you need to buy a daily pass or a full cruise pass). Two small saunas, free of charge, close to the gym, onboard Pacifica, Serena and Concordia.
-Costa Magica, Fortuna: separeted large saunas and steam baths. Free of charge.
-Celebrity Century: separeted small saunas. Free of charge. Thermal suite, co-ed, extra charge.
-Grandeur of the Seas & Vision of the Seas: separeted quite large saunas and steam baths. Free of charge.
-Splendour of the Seas & Legend of the Seas: separeted good size sauna and steam baths. Free of charge.
I'm still quite confused about the Enchantment of the Seas. I have read that the former saunas and steam baths were removed after the lenghtening (the original configuration was probably pretty much the same of the sister ship Grandeur of the Seas), but a lot of sources on the web mention a sauna, including the Royal Caribbean International web site. Who have been onboard this ship recently to tell the truth ?
Hey CntPAcruiser,Are you telling me in the co-ed spa you just have a towel on!
There's quite a bit of =X= spa information on this thread, you may want to scroll all the way back.
On her M-Class ships (Constellation, Millennium, Summit and Infinity) there is a large dry sauna in the men's changing and locker room. The dry sauna holds about 10-guys and has a nice window overlooking the sea. There are two cold plunge showers next to the dry sauna and 3 regular "hot and cold" showers. There is a small bench to cool down. Of course this is men only. This is at no additional charge. You can pay additional per day or for the entire cruise, to use co-ed steam and dry sauna(s), warm tile bench and tropical showers. When it's very quiet, I have just worn a towel - just be cautious and ready to cover up.
On the S-Class ships (Solstice, Equinox, Eclipse, Reflection) there is a smaller dry sauna which holds maybe 6 men. No window. This is in the changing / locker room. The changing room is ridiculous at best, as it is very small with maybe one or two very small square cushions. There is no cool-down area here. There are 3 showers I believe, which are nicer than the showers on the M-class ships. Each shower has it's own changing area with hooks, bench and frosted door. This is at no additional charge. You can purchase a daily or per-cruise pass to use the co-ed spa which has heated tile loungers, a large steam and large dry sauna. There are huge floor to ceiling windows in all 3 areas. A little harder to be "towel only attired".
Are you telling me in the co-ed spa you just have a towel on!
Oh Joe...Joe...Joe...would I come right out and profess this type of behavior? Yeah, I have once. Maybe twice. Sometimes, it's just really dead / quiet.Just what I thought Gary......
It is really good to use the steam room and sauna after a work out in the gym, however, I wish the ships could do an hourly rate rather than a days pass. If I go for a steam/sauna, usually after an hour or so I have had enough, so I object a little to having to pay for a full day. I love to go for a steam most days around 5.00 before having to go get changed for meal, so sadly if they are not free, I have to do without.We've done Oasis and Allure, which only have the thermal suite for a charge. Because steam/sauna is such a big part of our vacation relaxation, we've bitten the bullet and paid the charge for the week, with the intent to get in there at least twice a day, to make sure we're getting our money's worth.
No, there was no charge for the spa facilities. Enjoy!
Hi,Carnival Liberty has a very nice setup. Large sauna and steam room in the men's locker room. Both with windows overlooking the ocean. Plenty of chairs for cooling down. Nice shower area as well.
I too enjoy relaxing each day in the steam room and sauna. I find it very therapeutic and enjoy meeting other like-minded cruisers. Can you tell me about the set up on the Carnival Liberty? This will be my first Carnival cruise. I have cruised on RCCL, Princess and NCL in the past. My current favorite "relaxing" ships are the Voyager and Freedom class ships of RCCL.
Anyone know about the spa set-up on this ship??You are correct there is a dry sauna in the mens changing rooms. If you go on Odyssey then there is both sauna and steam in the changing rooms.
I have heard that there is a dry sauna in the men's changing area. Not much more than that.
Anyone with experience/info on this ship. I'll be on in July.............
I live for my "spa" time when cruising!!
