Oceania Cruises has debuted the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center—what the cruise line calls the most “comprehensive spa and wellness center at sea.” As part of the brand’s continued OceaniaNEXT enhancements, the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center extends beyond a traditional spa, offering a collection of holistic wellness experiences both onboard and ashore. The concept will be introduced across all of its six ships this winter.
Here’s what the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center comprises:
This restorative massage uses Himalayan salt stones, which improve mental alertness and overall wellbeing; warm salt stones are bathed in personally selected aromatics and help diffuse negative energy, reduce stress and alleviate muscle tension.
An onboard acupuncturist is certified to treat an array of symptoms and conditions, such as insomnia, weight gain, anxiety and pain management.
Soften fine lines and wrinkles on the upper face for a refreshed, youthful appearance; smoother-looking skin is visible within days and lasts up to four months.
While cruising Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River on a wooden rice barge, guests will benefit from reflexology, a foot therapy thought to enhance relaxation and reduce pain.
This experience pairs yoga, pranayama breathing and mindful meditation with a gourmet luncheon at a boutique winery, Viña Casa Marin, where guests will also learn about its history and micro-terroirs.
At a beekeeping farm in the Andalusian countryside, guests will learn about apitherapy, which focuses on the benefits of honeybee products, including raw honey, pollen, royal jelly and even bee venom. Benefits range from boosting the immune system to alleviating pain.
Guests can enjoy healthy Aquamar Vitality Cuisine in The Grand Dining Room, in addition to extensive plant-based and vegetarian dishes. Freshly pressed juices, smoothies and energy bowls are also served. Sample dishes include:
Complimentary fitness classes, access to a fitness center and the option of customized personal training sessions are all available. Sample complimentary fitness classes include yoga, Pilates, cycling and circuit-based training.
Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center will be implemented on each of Oceania Cruises’ ships on the following cruises:
