Newbie here, first cruise in a couple of weeks now.
We have a cabin with a bath tub, selected precisely for that feature.
Without meds (which I'll bring in abundance!) my legs can be painful enough to put me in bed. I'm very grateful for the meds. Go meds!!
Nevertheless, in the evenings, particularly before bedtime, my legs will (every once in a while) become "cranky." A dip in a tub of hot water makes things right as rain in about 15 minutes. Hence, the tub in the cabin.
I am curious if anyones noticed if the bathwater on Holland ships is hot. I'm guessing they don't allow it to get hot enough to burn someone, but "warm" water won't do the trick for me very well.
Yes, I know there are hot tubs on board, and I'll avail myself of those just for the pleasure of them. And, who knows? A steam room would probably do the trick just as well! A sauna? Love 'em, but have never tried to deploy one for this purpose.
Still, it would be nice to soak away the crankiness (if I need to) without having to venture forth after 10:00 PM at night.
Oportet ministros manus lavare antequam latrinam relinquent. Eurodam 2/2010
We were on the Zuiderdam in January and if there was anything that disappointed me it was the water in the shower - not very hot as a matter of fact not hot at all. I could have done with a much hotter shower and still not be scalding.
Next up - Celebrity Reflection, Nov. 22 (learning to sail solo) followed by Independence of the Seas Nov. 30.
Celebrity Constellation - March 17 followed by Celebrity Reflection - March 22 (done)
44 cruises - too many to list however cruiselines are in no particular order:
and some unknown tub
The water will be as hot as you want it and there is plenty of it. There is no shortage of heat sources on a ship!
I notice that you are going to be on the Eurodam. You won't be sharing the repositioning cruise to Rome with us will you?
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
