Embarkation Favorites - Spa

Carnival Conquest Spa
Wouldn't This Be a Nice Valentine's Day Present?

Carnival Conquest

You've just gotten aboard the ship and after having some lunch it's time to explore the ship and get to know more about what awaits you the rest of the week.   First up on our tour is the Spa.

On most ships, embarkation day means open house.  It is a chance for each department to showcase what they have to offer you as guests during your cruise.

Embarkation Specials

Carnival Conquest has a full service Spa, Salon, and Fitness Center located on Deck 11 Forward.
Prior to the mandatory safety drill, the spa is open giving tours of the facility and taking appointments for later that day and the rest of the cruise.

Arriving at the Spa, you are introduced to one of the many therapists on board who takes you on a private tour of the facility.   You are given the Spa Menu, much like you would receive a menu from the host at your favorite restaurant. 

Throughout the Spa, there are displays of the various treatments and someone on hand to explain the benefits and answer any questions you might have.   At the conclusion of the tour, you can make appointments and take advantage of published specials.

We decided to take advantage of having our treatment on embarkation day at a savings.  The Aromastones Massage is a 75 minute treatment which harnesses the properties of volcanic basalt stones combining with aromatherapy oils and traditional massage to make all your aches, pains, and stress melt away.  This hot stones treatment is by far our favorite massage on board a ship.   They were able to schedule our appointment right after the boat drill (and right before our dinner time).
They were offering an embarkation day discount of $46 from the $195 price tag.  Believe me, it is worth every penny.  There were several other offers with discounts up to $64 (for example: Aromaspa Seaweed Wrap & Massage to detox and condition your body).

TIP:  If you don't want to have your appointment on embarkation day, there are also 10, 20, 30% savings if you booked multiple treatments during the cruise.   For those still not ready to make an appointment - be sure to keep checking the Carnival Fun Times paper for more offers.

Now that we have our massage planned, we are off to continue our exploration of Carnival Conquest - be sure to come back to learn more about the ship and our cruise.
