The Spa & Salon Facilities onboard the Carnival Splendor:
Carnival Splendor Spa
The Carnival Splendor's Cloud 9 Spa is one of the largest spas of any cruise line, covering an expanse of 40,000 square feet. The two deck spa includes your standard day spa fare: massages, acupuncture, body wraps, slimming treatments, facial treatments, tooth whitening, steam rooms, and water therapies.
Highlights of the Cloud 9 Spa include the Thalassotherapy Pool and the Thermal Suite. There are also exclusive spa staterooms with special privileges and amenities. The spa is managed by Steiner who is the leader in spa management for the majority of the cruise lines.
You should check onboard for the current list of services being offered on your cruise. Of particular interest in the Carnival Splendor's spa facilities are the couples massage room, a tepidarium and oriental steam bath-part of the Thermal Suite, men's & women's steam rooms, and a dry float bed (used in body wraps).
Carnival Splendor Salon

Carnival Splendor Spa & Salon Tips:
Make certain to book any Salon and Spa menu of services early -- they tend to fill up quickly. Also, be on the lookout for discounts offered for making appointments on the first or second day of the cruise. If you can't make it the day of the discount or if they are full, ask for an appointment at the discount rate for the following day. It doesn't hurt to ask and more often than not, they will honor the discounted price.
There will be drawings throughout the cruise for free services. Most of the time, you have to be there at the appointed time to win. It is worth showing up. This is especially true on sunny days in port where drawings may be offered before leaving port. Some people will still be off the ship and enjoying the sights. That will increase your odds of winning.
