Senses Spa and Salon (Magic Class, deck 9; Dream Class, decks 11 and 12) offers world-class spa treatments, a hair salon, an aerobics studio, and a fitness room. The large spa is for adults only (with the exception of Chill Spa for teens). The spa on the Magic Class is 11,400 sq. ft., and on the Dream Class, 16,000 sq. ft. Like most cruise ship spas, the facility is operated by Steiner (http://www.steinerleisure.com) and the spa staff tends to be female and young. Hours are typically 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. Most spa reservations can be made in advance online (see page 189).

If the spa interests you, we recommend you visit during the open house on your first afternoon (check your Personal Navigator). This is also the best time to reserve spa treatments, if you haven’t booked online. Reservations must be canceled at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a 50% fee.

The hair salon offers a variety of services—reservations are necessary, can only be made on board, and they fill up quickly for formal and semi-formal evenings. The hair stylists specialize in European styles and all the basics. Prices: blow dry ($32 to $48); woman’s hair cut with wash, cut, and style—$56 to $75 (depends on length); man’s cut and style—$24 to $42; women's up do—$48; and frangipani scalp treatment—$26. You can also get nail services: Manicures are $50 and pedicures are $70. Waxing services run from $29 to $85. All ships also include a separate men’s barber shop.

The aerobics studio is where many of the fitness classes and seminars are held. Activities are listed in the Personal Navigator as well as on a schedule available in the spa. Expect complimentary hair consultations, metabolism seminars, fatburner aerobics, detoxification seminars, skin care clinics, introduction to Pilates, de-stress techniques, Step Magic, and cardio kickbox. You are encouraged to sign up in advance for the free classes and seminars, which last about 30 to 45 minutes each. Group personal training may be offered on your cruise for $82/50 minutes. Or get a Body Composition Analysis to measure your body’s metabolic rate, water, fat, and lean tissue—the price is $33. Registration is required for the personal training sessions and body composition analysis.

The fitness room offers a panoramic vista, overlooking the ship’s bow on the Magic Class ships, and views to the starboard side on the Dream Class. On all ships, the fitness room offers guests the use of free weights, Cybex weight machines, treadmills, stair-steppers, ab-rollers, and stationary bikes. iPods with preloaded music are available for use during workouts. No fees or reservations are needed to use the fitness room, though there may be a waitlist for a treadmill during peak times. The fitness room is more crowded on at-sea days. Open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Men’s and women’s locker rooms are available with restrooms, delightful showers, saunas, and lockers. Some people prefer the showers at the spa to the showers in their staterooms for the space, water pressure and luxurious shower head. Feel free to use the locker rooms whenever you need them—lockers have electronic locks and robes are provided in the locker rooms, and both may be used free of charge.

Note: The spa on the Disney Wonder was expanded, redecorated and re-branded as Senses in late 2016. Changes are consistent with those made to the Magic in 2013, including the addition of the Chill Spa for teens.
