Default Mercury Thalassotherapy Pool

Does anyone know the charge per day / week for using the Thalassotherapy Pool on the Mercury?

I believe it was $70 for the entire 10 day cruise last year.

What is the difference between a Thalassotherapy pool and a regular pool?

The T pool is a therapeutic pool with very strong jets. It's similar to the pools on M class ships but more spa oriented. On Mecury it is in a private area so you have to pay or get it for free before or after a spa treatment. Wonder what the charge will be per day or for all 5 days on the Pacific Northwest itin! I really look forward to it!

It sounds like a Jacuzzi - or is it different? Sorry to be so dense!

If I remember correctly if you have a Sky Suite or above it is free. Possible Concierge Class is included in the freebe??? Call the Captians Club and ask. Celebrity web site says Concierge Class you have to be an Elite member.

It is alot more than a jacuzzi. There are multiple "stations" where you can massage everything from your entire body to indididual areas from calves to neck. To do "circuit" takes about 25 minutes. it is the best deal on a cruise ship you will ever find for a relaxing spa treatment. We do it every evening a about 6pm and then head back to cabin to get dressed for dinner. Very relaxing /unwinding experience.

Great description above by papa Bill --boy if it's free for CC class we'll be thrilled. No matter what, we'll be enjoying the T pool. The M class solarium pools are nice but are more a hybrid indoor spa type pool with the roller beds--this really has "jets!"

Do we go to the spa to get a pass for the 10 day cruise? It sounds great - and cheaper than just one massage!
I had a horrible massage experience on RCL last year, so I'm not going to get another massage on a ship!

Yes to going to the spa to sign up. Yes to cheaper than, or no more expensive than even one treatment. Just a very relaxing experience. Possibly a bit more crowded than I remember if Concierge level gets it for free. But, we used to go just when first seating diners would be back in the cabin getting dressed so it kept the area fairly quiet.

I don't believe that Concierge level cabins get free access, just people in suites, and someone has mentioned Elite Members (?). I was on the Galaxy this past January and the T-pool was never crowded, which kind of confirms my first sentence. I think if there were any other cabin levels that got free access the T-pool would have been to busy to enjoy. The T-pools on the C-class ships are too small to allow wide-open access, unlike the M-class ships that have very large T-pools.

Definitely is a freebie for Elite members of the CC.We thoroughly enjoyed it on the Mercury last January.We also enjoy it on the M class ships,but it's much more personal on the Mercury.

What level is Elite? Must agree about spa treatments...more & more they are turning into info-mericals to buy the very expensive products...some of them I am allergic to. I have greatly reduced spa services which is why investing in the T pool or extra sauna suites is worth it for us...did the special steam rooms on Brilliance with Royal which was great! They face the sea & are bright and airy compared to the ones on M class....they are interior & a bit dank!

We were in Concierge Class last Sept on the Galaxy and we had to pay for the T-pool. However, we are not elite members. It was well worth the cost for the week.
