Rainforest length of cruise pass for a short cruise - am I missing something?

We did on the Fantasy a length of cruise pass and used virtually every day (a few days more than once).

We are doing a quick 3-day this fall and knowing the 3-day "Deluxe" Rainforest pass is $102 plus gratuity (and you really only have just over 2 days of use after all the open houses finish the first day), I cannot figure the benefit of. Day passes are $16pp/day so even if one is buying 6 day passes, I am only at $96 plus gratuity. Sure the length of cruise pass includes the scrubs but unless one uses the facilities after the fire drill or dinner Day 1, what benefit is there for the length of cruise pass on such a short sailing?

AFAIK, the day passes you get ahead of time are the best value.

We always get the weeklong pass. On the shorter cruises it really isn't worth the cruise long pass. We usually try some other things on the short cruises.

Last week on the Wonder the day passes were approx $27.50 per day PLUS 18% "gratuity". It basically saves virtually no $ cost savings to pay for the whole time.

I'd suggest going to this page http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/gifts-and-amenities/

and faxing in an order for as many day passes as you want for $16 each.

Does anyone know how much a length of cruise pass would cost for a 7day ? I only see the one day pass online

@JennLK I believe I paid $144 + Gratuity on the Fantasy for a 7-day in May.

@tanyam76 Rainforest Room has little pots of exfoliating body scrubs available for use in the steam rooms/showers. They are included if you purchase the cruise pass but are an extra charge if you purchase access per day.

I would have sworn that the length of cruise pass was for two. Changes the calculations a bit.

I did not like the scrubs! We weren't told they were included so our first use of the place didn't include them. I was able to enjoy the rooms in my usual way, which means I spent far longer in the rooms than many people. I love a good steam room.

Them we found out about the scrubs. They were messy and weird for me, and then I started overheating. Something that hasn't happened before. Guess when you slather your skin and pores with oil, you get hotter faster! I wasn't able to enjoy that visit anywhere near the extent as before, and I was all greasy later because it just would not wash off. I won't use the scrubs again.

The length of cruise pass is for two and my calculations above (6 day passes) factors the same for two.

On the 7-day, the cost is the same as buying 6 single day passes for two (or at least only $1 more at $193 currently). I just did not see the value of a length of cruise pass on the 3-day and was wondering if I missed something.

What are the chances of getting a cruise length pass if our port arrival time is 10:30? And just to clarify, it's for two people, right? Do they have to be in the same state room?

Cruise length passes are obtained directly from Senses and sold starting the day of boarding so it does not matter the PAT time you have. You'll have plenty of time when you board to make your way up to the open house they have that first afternoon (so you can see even if using the Rainforest Room would interest you).

They sell for both individuals and couples (3-day cruise is $102/couple or $69 for one while a 7-day cruise $193/couple or $144 for one). I have no clue as to whether a couple has to be from the same cabin, but if I were to guess I'd say yes (as you turn in - or at least used to - your KTTW card to obtain a bracelet that gets you into the facilities at each visit).
