Default Hot Tubs....hurt!

Ok I have been on 2 carnival cruises the Fantasy in 2001 and the Spirit this past January. Both times I could not sit on the seats inside the wirlpool. If I did the little jets felt like little bee stings all over the bottom of my legs! Either the water coming out was Ice cold or Burining hot...not sure which one but it HURT! anyone have this problem?

I've never found the hot tubs to be hot. Luke warm would better describe my experience with cruiseship hot tubs. For this reason I don't get in them anymore.

Regards,
Thomas

My experiences with Carnival (Imagination 2000 and Fantasy 2001) were the hot tubs were, at best, luke warm...I never had the hurting sensation though.

I just returned from RCI Enchantment and found their hot tubs to be HOT, but still no pain....maybe you have a sensitive derriere'...

I really can't deal with how crowded the hot tubs are on cruises. I remember on Celebrity, I was 12 (damn, I was a child in the hot tubs...sorry folks!) and it was OK, and on Carnival, (I was 17 then) the Pride had great hot tubs, but they were so crowded, I hardly ever got into one.

The jets in the whirlpools are not powerful at all and it it hurts then you may want to check with your Dr. and see if there is some reason you are so sensitive to pressure.

It wasn;t the pressure...it was more of a stinging sensation....like the water was either too hot or too cold....my mom had the same problem...the only one who didn't was my father but he was wearing swimming trunks
