    Hello, I am trying to get some feedback from past cruisers that may have used the spa service on their ship!  I am planning my wedding on the 7day mexican riviera Feb 2011 and I am having a hard time making a decision on if I should take the chance using the spa service that the ship provides.  I am having my wedding In Puerto Vallarta so I have time to use a local service when I get there, the only problem is, if it doesnt turn out, I am SOL..I figured when I arrive on the ship on Sunday, I can go straight to the spa service and do a "trial"run.  If all turns out well then I can use them the day of my wedding.  Obviously this makes more sense but I dont know how well their services are.  Has anyone used the spa services before?  If so, how was your experience and were you satisfied?


    Thanks for the help :)

      i have been trolling these destination/cruise wedding boards, and one thing i have NOT once seen is that someone was disappointed in their hair done by the spa. everyone has had nothing but good things to say.


      i think you have a great plan to do a trial run with the spa. maybe you could do the trial run on the first formal night and look great for dinner!

        I was a bridesmaid for a girlfriend's wedding last year on a Princess cruise. We never did a trial run, and the salon did a fabulous job on our hair.  I would not hesitate to go that way, and then you don't have to worry about finding someone at the port. Here's a photo of my hair, sorry it's not a great shot. It was really windy, so I asked for a low bun slightly off to the side. I think it came out really well, and it held!PB176913.JPGPB176938a.jpgHere's the bride's hair. Keep in mind her hair is barely chin length, and they made it look like it was a mile long the way the hair stylist wrapped each piece.


        Hope that helps! Good luck.
