Default cruise massage

Does anyone know the average price of a massage on the cruise ship and how long the massage last? Are there different types of massages offered?

The price for a one hour Swedish massage is around $125 if you are at sea and around $85 while in port. The masseuse will start with questions about your health, etc., and the actual massage is 50 minutes. The prices do not include a tip, and they will try to sell you some expensive lotions afterward. The massage that I had on our last cruise was the best one that I have ever had, but it was expensive. I especially liked the heated massage oil that the masseuse used. If you want a hot stone massage or some of the other specialized techniques, it will cost more. If you can fit a massage into your budget, you will love it.

My wife and I just had the couples massage on our last sea day, $229.00 I was afraid that I might fall asleep and snore. I later became afraid that they would have to mop me up off the floor. It was great and there was no sales pitch at the end.

I love massages! And, I think I'll wait until port since here in my hometown, I can get the sweedish one for 65.00! 75.00 for deep tissue and hot stone. Thanks for the info! I know they try to sell things at the end. I"m just gonna tell them that I already have some of their products (just hope they don't ask me which ones..lol). Was hoping it was for 60 min and not 50. Goes by way to fast!

Thanks!

The last time my wife had one it was $75.00 per person, deep tissue,
well worth the cost.
