Default spa treatments

I'm a cruise newbie, and I was wondering about on-board spa treatments. Do you experienced cruisers love them or disdain them? How do they compare in value to treatments at a day spa? Should one rush to book a session as soon as one boards, or is waiting for a possible discount a better strategy?

I'll be on RCI's Navigator, BTW. Thanks in advance for your advice!

Spa treatments are obviously a popular thing otherwise the cruise industry would not
offer them. Value wise would probably depend on your economic perspective. They are relatively expensive , but again, that depends on what your perspective of expensive is.
The "prime" times and treatments do get booked quickly (the same goes for beauty treatments and hair appointments). The best "deals" are usually the ones offered on in port days. When 90% of the passengers are on shore, the spas obviously get a bit slow. This is when you can usually find your discounted treatments.
My wife will usually treat herself to one little indulgence per cruise, I can do without it altogether. We had tablemates on a Clebrity cruise who were averaging one spa treatment and one beauty treatment per day.
Some people don't gamble but it doesn't stop the casinos from filling up. The same goes for the Spa.
Enjoy your cruise.

the spa treatments usually run you double what you would pay for at home, the techs really try to push and sell, sell, sell the products they are using on you, again about double what you would pay for at home. I do however, try to indulge myself and get a massage. Book it on a port day, but not if you have a sunburn, eeeeoweee!!!!
