Men's Spa Facilities on Cruise ships: Which ones do you think are the best?

Thanks, Repositioner, but OntarioBiMe above says the Gem has a single-man jacuzzi in the men's area. Do you know if that's the free area, or the paid area?

 

Jacuzzi is in the fee paying spa. Gem has a free steam room in the mens gym changing room. No free sauna or jacuzzi.

Has anyone considered whether small enclosed spaces in a cruise ship such as the sauna and steamroom will be considered unsafe and closed for a period of time when cruises resume?

I hope not.  That's one of the reasons I cruise.  I enjoy my time in there.

Well, just to be clear; none of the four (NCL Jewel, Gem, Jade, Pearl) has a mens community whirlpool.  The Pearl once did, but it was removed.  That having been said, the elaborate facilities on these ships remain the best of their kind.  NCL's regrettable practice of charging $20 - $30 a day for thermal passes discourages many passengers from ever using them.  

I'm a bit late but I was on the Jade in February 2019 and it had a large whirlpool in the thermal suite. You can also see it on the deckplans. I'll be on the Jade again in April 2021 and hope it's not removed by then. If the cruise lines are cutting costs, I can't see that maintenance being a priority. 

 

I got hooked on the thermal suite on the Jade and now get it every time I cruise.

My gym has opened where we live, and the information they sent to members is that for now, the pool, whirlpool, sauna, and even the showers will not be available. In this gym, the showers are individual stalls, so I really don't know why they are not letting gym-goers use them. I mean, presumably the toilet stalls are available for use, and those are less closed-off than the shower stalls!

I suppose  there is a chance that by the time cruises start up that your gym, and maybe the cruise ships, will be less restrictive than we fear they will be. Fingers crossed that a post-loosening-up resurgence of the virus will not be as pervasive as predicted (by some). I have a transAtlantic cruise scheduled for November. I'm holding off buying airplane tickets until it is more clear how viable air and cruise travel will be or whether the countries on the itinerary will even allow ships to dock.

Hi retiring later this year ( bad timing?!) and was looking  forward to a first cruise and making the most of the men’s spas steam and saunas ..I hope they will still be functional when the industry is back up and running? Any recommendations for a first time solo cruise?

Royal Caribbean's Independence of the seas, Explorer of the seas, Adventure of the seas and Marnier of the seas all have an excellent free steam room and sauna inside the men's locker room off the gym.  At least that was the case pre Covid.
