Quick Question about Szechenyi Bath

Can a man and a woman share 1 cabin?
Do I book 1 cabin and 1 locker when I book my tickets online?

Thank you,

My husband and I have shared a cabin -- a little tight, but not a problem. And we have never pre-booked (off-season)

James is really the expert, but Ill weigh in since I just got back. Dad and I bought a one day ticket which entitled each of us to a locker. We were a bit surprised/appalled that locker rooms are mixed gender.
How it worked was- after wiping your admission band, you come to a series of changing rooms which open on two sides. There is a small wheel at the bottom of the door that shows red (occupied) or green (unoccupied). The changing room has a bench with a ledge which folds up and down. it urns the disc and also blocks the door from opening when folded down. ( Of course, we didnt figure this out till later after I flashed Budapest but at least my dad was not in the field of vision LOL). After you change, you go out the other door and find a locker which you open and close with the admission band.
Ricks book has a good description of the pools. We mainly did the outdoor ones. The 2 ends ones are for relaxing. Dont miss the end one with the current and then the jacuzzi in the center. So much fun. The current seems to be constant. the jacuzzi went on and off so you have to be patient. Dont give up your seat.
We went on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It was crowded but not crazy. No line. But we are used to municipal pools.
Take your own suits, flip flops and towels. You need a bathing cap to swim in the center pool which is for laps, You can suits, towels, flipflops and caps there but time consuming and sizes are risky. We bought old towels and old flipflops. We used the old towels to wrap wine up and left the flip flops behind at our last stop.

I AM SO GLAD WE WENT. Dad was hesitant but we had a ball!!! it was the high light of our trip. The surrounding park is beautiful as well and it is easily accessible by metro. The Metro is a historic line and is worth a ride
