I am booked on June 15th, before I booked a specially asked if there were separate male and female sauna/steam rooms, and they said yes. If there is no men's sauna is there a steam room? If so how large? If I book the day spa are there separated cavities there?

 

Thank you Mitch 

What ship?

Hi, Dan56.

 

Re Pullmantur Horizon, can you tell me if the sauna you mention is set up for good conversation and is it well used?  It’s not a mainline ship but looks fairly good, and I’m thinking of a cruise on it this spring.  Thanks for anything you can tell me about it, including more generally.   Mike

Hi Mike:  Re:  Pulmantur Horizon.  Generally it was a good cruise.  We were in Athens and it fit our schedule.  It is a very old Celebrity ship (Pulmantur is part of RC) and is due to be replaced soon.  The sauna was small.  Usually a couple of guys in it when I was there.  I usually went in afternoon, may be busier later.  Most everything is in Spanish with some English.  The food was good. We were sat with three Australian couples.  The shows were mainly song and dance with a little English.   We did have a couple of problems.  If you book a tour for Athens, make sure the tour company knows which dock the ship is at.  The dock is different from most American ship's docks and I missed a tour.  Another problem we had there was a pump or something that went off about every 20 secs. with a buzzing sound -- very distracting for me at night.  Although we were told the ship was not totally full, they would not move us.  This kind of messed up what would have been a very good cruise.

dan56, thanks very much for your helpful information. Too bad about the distracting noise.
 

With this coronavirus we’re all dealing with now, let’s hope cruise lines everywhere will survive!

I have added updates to the worksheet for the Holland America Pinnacle Class Ships. Still dreaming of my next cruise since had to cancel two this year already. Hope everyone is staying healthy and happy. Be patient and continue to support your favorite cruise lines.

This list is great -I was afraid I was going to have to cancel my 39 day transpacific cruise on the Oosterdam - and 7 day post-COVID cruise out of Galveston because they did not have Saunas.

 

Not really - but I do like to get in a few sauna sessions while cruising - and nice to see that all my ships I have booked still have saunas.

 

Sad to see some ships are taking them out, or starting to charge - I really do not use any of the other Spa services when cruising.

Question here regarding the spreadsheet - I can’t access rows76-146 approx. Any suggestions?

Somebody had set up to filter out blanks or missing information. I noticed the question column titles were missing and some Comments were misplaced. 

So I restored the spreadsheet back to when it looked right, from January 2021.

 

All the rows are showing now.

I see that Freedom of the Seas is shown as still having complimentary facilities. Didn't those get removed when she was "amplified"? It's not 100% clear from the current deck plans, but I thought there were some pretty major changes in the fitness center area, and it looks like there are new cabins where at least some of what was once locker room was located.

maybe a "latest update" date column needs to be added to take into account these renovations. or rather the age of the presented information?

Done! Great idea. Added "Latest Update" column on right side at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ROCmeNSYj_VwCYs3IUjWbrcEomFeqOrvIDUnXG6GLTg/edit?usp=drivesdk

First of all the spread sheet is awesome, it must have taken a long time to make it, I will be planning several cruises now that I am vaccinated. Being a guy hooking into lifting all my life I really need a good sauna/steam daily and enjoy it also pre dinner. I love the camaraderie of single sex facilities, and I have met some great men, had some great discussions. Taking my son on his first cruise, so this spreadsheet will help! Anyone feeling like chatting about the best facilities that they have experience, feel free to contact me.
