Question SPLENDOR SPA-What did you think?

What did you think of the Thalassotherapy Pool on the Slendor. The Thermal suites? Would love others feedback.

We spent $248.00 for unlimited use of both for the week. Loved the suites was very dissappointed in the thalassotherapy pool. And those dragons staring down at you how relaxing was that? But in all fairness I was comparing the thalassotherapy pool to the one on the Oosterdam and those were some big shoes to fill.

I had a Spa balcony on the Splendor in Nov 2008...and loved it.

I am NOT a Spa person at all. I don't like massages, etc etc ... can barely stand a manicure....

but I really enjoyed the thalassotherapy pool, thermal suites etc...I used the Cloud 9 every day on the Splendor and on the Dream. I found it very relaxing and had an entire routine every morning.....

While I have never done a thalass pool on any other cruise line...I equate it to a mineral bath like they have in Hot Springs, Ark (which I have also done and LOVED)...

I loved it! The week long package is a great buy, you do get unlimited use of the pool, saunas, and relaxation rooms.
I try to walk at least a mile each day while on a cruise, going to the Thalassotherapy Pool and sauna after walking was great! The Spa doesn't officially open until 8:00 a.m. only once did I have to wait for the sauna to get hot & steamy. The "creatures" looking down at you from the pool was a bit strange I'll admit, but not enough to keep me out!

This package would not have been a good deal for me. I'm not allow to go into to thermal suites and Saunas. I probably could have used the T-pool unless the tempature was set too high. People with MS are heat sensitive. My feet are my early warning sign if I'm getting to hot. I did like the dragons around the T-pool so I had to get a picture.
