Default Spa Services

Does anyone know how much a massage runs on carnival ships? What spa services do you recommend? Which to avoid?

Well, the spa services on board most cruise ships are independent companies and I have found their services are outrageously expensive! You should be able to go online at the Carnival website and find pricing for the services.

Your best bet is to book a massage while the ship is in port, that is when you get the best deals. Also, they have daily specials once you get on board..

A warning, along with their services these spa companies attempt to sell you their products, again at high prices...it is kind of a pressure sell once you are in there.

I spent a lot of money for a massage aboard ship, had to listen to their sales pitch for their products... the next day we docked at an island (I don't remember which one,and right there not far from the port, there was a company that had a massage chair outside and for $20.00 I had one of the best upper body massages I've ever had!!!

Go figure!

Hi Cropn,
Do you scrapbook? I love the swedish massage. However I need to put the money asside. The last cruise I didn't get one because the price was $120. Just a bit 2 much when you also need to tip the person. Wish it was lower $80 or $100. Which is still double what I pay at home.

Enjoy

I read on another board that if you tell them you don't want the sales pitch before you start they will forego it knowing it might cost them a tip.
