Which Amenities On A Cruise Ship Don't You Use?


Recommended Posts

HI  The number of amenities on most cruise ships have increased in number and variety over the years but which facilities/amenities do use not or rarely use?   I don't use the gym or sauna, bathroom robes or the towelling slippers provided onboard or attend bingo.  I never use any of the fore mentioned items at home so I don't see the point of using them on a holiday.

Never been to the Spa. Assume that I will get the hard sell whilst in there to buy further treatment.

 

I was really concerned about that too, but it wasn't my experience (on Celebrity Eclipse).

 

In fact I wasn't even told about (let alone pressured into selling) any additional products during or after my massage.  Ultimately if they did that during treatments they'd put a lot of people off coming back  Remember, this isn't a bait and switch where they offer cheap treatments to sell products; the treatments themselves are quite expensive.

This is a good question. I never use the gym, spa, art auction and or attend the port lectures. I don't know why they even have an art gallery on most ships, who buys them?

A lot of the replies have been about the sauna, my dad loves to go in the sauna every day on a cruise before getting ready for dinner. He's not too happy now on a lot of the larger ships you can't get into the sauna unless you buy access to the spa.

I never use the spa as I stretch myself to pay for the cruise I want and just can't afford to pay the extra. If I had the enough cash I'm sure I would enjoy it. I don't use the Casino for the same reason. 

I don't use the gym, mainly because I'm too lazy to get up for the activities which would suit me. But I do like to walk on the promenade deck and it frustrates me when I can't get all the way round. 

I enjoyed 2 plays on the Adonia but they were in the afternoon and it meant missing the fresh air and the sunshine.

Definitely do not visit:  Bingo, Art Auctions, Spa, Casino, Gym or sale tables.  Rarely visit the shops and I only remember buying anything when I had a lot of OBC to spend.  I do like a bathrobe but prefer my own slippers.  Up to now I have not paid extra for a private deck area or cabana.
