Has anyone used the services in the Lotus Spa? I would like to know where I can go on the net or elsewhere to find out how much the services cost. We will be sailing to Alaska in Aug 08 on the Star. First time cruisers...

If you are that close to sailing, you have a Booking Number with Princess. Your TA can give it to you.

With it, you can logon to your itinerary at http://www.princess.com and view pricing and make reservations for the spa as well as shore excursions.

You can also complete your immigration information that must be done prior to boarding.

Default Lotus Spa

I've cruised w/ Princess a lot & have always done the spa each time.
Tips:
1. When 1st onboard, they show limited list of treatments - at full price. (see Princess website; search "spa"). Take spa tour 1st day while waiting for your luggage to arrive. Enter drawing for free treatment.
2. Discounts offered:
- Check daily newsletter for specials - or visit the spa daily for adverts.
- Specials offered when "in port". Book morning - but better to book at end of day when tired - and just before ship leaves port.
- More discounts offered toward end of cruise. Once you do a treatment, let them know you're interested again - for a discount.
- Some free workout classes, lectures offered.

Despite full prices at beginning, great to start a cruise w/ a massage; get you in the relaxation mode after tiring day of travel - especially to beautiful Alaska. I love the "hot stone massage"! Also love having a massage then returning to the cabin to relax. Oh - for me, didn't like ionithermie; hurt plus $$$. Warning - attendants will push "products". Can be pricey; don't be swayed unless you want to be.

Happy cruising!

P.S. Great thing to do when ship is at sea is to walk the promenade deck for exercise as well as enjoy the views - especially w/ an ipod.

Anyone - but seems more for adult use. There are ways to get to pool w/o going through the spa.

This is exactly what happened to me. I entered the drawing, got a full price massage the first day (great, by the way). Then, since we had an expensive excursion canceled due to inclement weather, I booked another massage for the last full day of the cruise.

They called the night before the second massage saying I was a "runner-up" in the drawing, and was eligible for 50% a treatment. Since I already had the massage booked the next day, I used the 50% off for that massage!

Also, the second massage was 75 minutes. The first massage was only 50 minutes (same person both times, tipped well both times too -- maybe that helped?!?).

The spa services do help you "escape completely."
