Default Spa Services Statendam Included with Treatment?

If you book a spa service on HAL, do you automatically gain access to the hydrotherapy area included in the price? Would the access be for the whole day or for an hour before /after?

What type of spa service are you talking about? Do you mean, manicure, pedicure, massage, etc. If so, no you do not gain access to the hydrotherapy pool. You'd have to pay for it

You can book a day package or a weekly package.

Check out HAL's website for prices, under "For Booked Guests".

Thank you... I guess it was just wishful thinking... I called shipboard services just to see if there were any exceptions but no luck. I guess they REALLY want that $40 a day for the pool etc ... and that apparently doesn't include steam rooms and sauna... I really want to see how busy they are and how many people shell out an additional $400+ for a 2 week cruise... maybe I will just have to run the hot shower in my cabin a little longer and cleanse that way...lol

I thought the steam rooms and sauna were free. Guess I'm wrong, however check with the spa when you get on board.

Steam room is all I care about so that would be fantastic... I guess I will wait until I actually get on board... this is my first HAL cruise ... i am soooo excited.

I too thought the steam rooms and sauna incurred no extra charge, just as using the gym facilities don't. But I think to get the hydrotherapy room, you have to book an actual spa treatment ... like a full body massage. I don't think a simple manicure or pedicure, or even hair styling appointment will get you that.

I'm not a big user of the spa, but my suggestion would be to wait until you are onboard. If they find their facilities not being in great demand during any particular cruise, they may offer some great per day rates to use the hydrotherapy facilities. But this is one of those things I wouldn't be too quick to book in advance, simply because you are likely to pay the highest rates when you do it in that manner.

Thx Rita... As you are now my Statendam hero after your postings,

I will be sure to take your advice... I mainly want to try the spa to be able to talk about it to my clients first hand... I have a hard time justifying $160 for a massage and hydrotherapy though... just think of the champagne that could buy! (not the SAME relaxing effect but it works!)
