We usually have these weekly passes to this pool while on HAL cruises. Since we usually don't use them the first day, last day, and sometimes one other day on 7 day cruises, it would not be worth paying it. We tended to go there around 5 pm and spent about a half hour in the pool. Then, we would move to the sauna rooms and lounge out on their heated mosiac loungers for another half hour. We'd leave about 6/6:30 to get ready for dinner. We only utilized these once a day. They felt good while we were there, esp at the end of a busy day when they revitalized us, but hub and I both agreed that we'd rather get a day pass, then we would not feel too guilty about spending the money and not going there.
