The Enclave, on Princess... what does it cost?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We’re booked on a 31 day cruise from Sydney back to Auckland and we’d like to know if anyone can share what the cost would be for access to The Enclave?  We purchased a similar feature on Star Princess on a 12 day cruise in the Mediterranean and it was about $125 each I think.  It was a fabulous option because of the thermal beds after a day of ‘cruising’.

You're very welcome. Enjoy your amazingly long cruise, and let us know what you thought of the Enclave!

How can it be that I am not aware of The Enclave?!  Is this a new name of The Sanctuary, or is it something different?

Hi AndiD,

We’ve only done it once on Star Princess but it was fabulous.  It is different than The Santuary.  You can only book it once on board and on our cruise it was very limited and first-come-first-serve.

Take care,

Craig

I've never heard of the "Enclave."  Is that a special room, or place to hang out or suite?    Just trying to learn about it!  What makes it special?  Would love to learn about it!  and Welcome to CruiseCrazies, Craig!

Hi Shari2,

As I understand it’s part of the Lotus Spa.  Here is a link you can check out;

https://www.princess.com/ships-and-experience/ships/products/joyful-rejuvenation/the-enclave-at-lotus-spa.html

We discovered it on a cruise in the Mediterranean aboard the Star Princess.  We were given a ship tour on our first day and they shared that for a very limited number of guests and on a first-come-first-serve basis you could purchase access to an exclusive part of the Spa that featured a number of thermal beds.  We found it very relaxing after a day of adventure on shore.  It seems to me it was about $150 per person (2011) for a 12 day cruise.  There were perhaps 20 - 40 spots available.  We went for it and were so glad we did.

This feature wasn’t available on our next cruise but it is available on the cruise we booked for next year on the Sea Princess.  Unfortunately you cannot book it in advance and they won’t even tell us what it would cost.  We’re just hoping for the best.

I hope this helps.

Take care,

Craig

Thanks @CraigSollitt for telling us about the Enclave. You are right - it’s part of the Lotus Spa. It seems to be similar to Norwegian’s Thermal Spa. Maybe I’ll check it out when I’m on the Regal in October.
