On the 10/13 cruise on Triumph, I took advantage of the hot stone special on the last port day and got just about 30 minutes of pure bliss and a wonderful facial for $99, not including tip! It was well worth it and Ashling was the best. I think her irish lilt had something to do with it too. I can't wait until I can afford an hour of the hot stone and the facial is something that I'll continue to do at home.

"Tragedy plus time equals humor. You'll end up laughing about it later."
on the triumph, we did the couples massage, $266 for 50 minutes. lost 10 minutes waiting to fill papers and for staff, went to room to get ready and then a 30 minute massage, only a decent massage. was told that a 50 minute massage is for 50 minutes total experience, including prep (paperwork) and relaxation at the end (?). with tip , $300.00. yes i knew it was expensive, but previous cruise massages were excellent, and honest times.
Also remember that many ports offer massages on the beach.
I know that in Cozumel you can go to Paradise Beach (which has no entrance fee) and get a massage right on the beach for $1 a minute with a 30 minute minimum. They are right on the beach under an individual white tent and clean sheets, towels and an excellent massage...according to my husband.
