My husband and I are on the Inspiration leaving in a month. We are trying to plan on whether to get any spa treatments while on the cruise.

Does anyone have examples of spa prices? We are thinking about a couples massage, a facial, and I might get my hair done for formal night.

Also, do they do a good job?

I have one of carnivals capers here in front of me this one was on the legend full absolute spa treatment 1 hour 45 minutes full body massage pro- collagen marine facial and deep indian scalp massage $180.00 each they do offer specials thru out the cruise trip so you may get some good prices if you read your flyers when they come in the capers also they some time have quikie massages on the pool decks for a small fee just to entice you to the spa, also some time in the embarking port they have the spa girls selling promo spas before the cruise leaves and they offer some discounts. I have not done any of them but I did look them offer it was a bit to much for my taste I waited till I got to Cozumel and got one on the beach for a 25.00 fee which I seen has gone up to 45.00 now at playa del sol now known a playa mia. and it was pure heaven for the 25 minutes, so good luck I have nothing here in capers about couples but they will have that information at the boarding as they want to book all the hours they can while at sea sometime they will have a table set up in lobby of the ship as you enter also. Happy cruz'n fran

Hi new2cruise,
I was on the Imagination in September and based on the Spa Carnival Signature Menu: A Hydralift Facial treatment was $109 for 50 min. / Seaweed Massage was $176 for 75 min / Couples Massage 50 min $242. Hair Services - Shampoo/blow dry and set is $30 for short/$35 medium/$45 long. They also have a Formal Night Special which was hair and make-up combo for $70. Since I did not use these services - I can't comment on the quality, but I do know on other ships that the Couples Massage is great.
Nancy

Prices are definately quite a bit more than on the mainland. Thanks for the information!

Prices are definately higher onboard. Services for us were nice on RCI. But the sales pitch at the end was a little stressing. Too bad that after a wonderful massage you have to say, "no." To a sales pitch. Who wants to have to decide on spending another $300.00 dollars on product after you've just paid for a high dollar massage. My husband was able to say no. I on the other hand, ended up paying over $400.00 for a sea weed massage. Buyers remorse ruined the massage experience. I didn't expect that at all. I thought that the cruise line was geared toward making your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Lord knows you pay enough for the cruise and in the casino. With the shopping, you choose to view items you might decide to purchase. The spa should be the same. If you'd like to purchase any of the products that they've used on you, they should set up a shop in the spa instead of having your massage therapist hit you up before you can leave the room. Just my opinion.

Thanks for the warning. It's nice to be mentally prepared if they start pressuring me to buy products.
