Cruise Ship Spas: The Ultimate in Relaxation
Enjoying the treatments of a luxurious spa can relax you, reawaken your senses and restore a feeling of inner peace. If your busy life barely allows time for a manicure, perhaps it’s time to schedule a cruise vacation – on a ship with a fabulous spa.
A cruise is all about getting away from the daily routine, and that automatically sets the stage for a wonderful spa experience. Cruise ship spas are lovely and serene, with both traditional and leading-edge treatments for skin, body, nails and hair.
For example, you could indulge in a half-day ritual designed to melt away stress and tension. It might begin with an enriching milk bath, and then continue with aroma stone therapy. There are many other treatments to try, including meditative relaxation, hydrotherapy, medicinal mud applications and herbal steam baths.
Many people make their first-ever spa visit on a cruise, so the attendants are accustomed to answering questions about services and treatments. Go ahead and ask about different types of massages, aromatherapies and hand and foot treatments – the more you learn, the more intrigued you will be, and the more customized your personal treatment can become.
Cruise ship spas continually add new treatments, and even experienced spa lovers can try something new. You might treat yourself to oxygenating facials, cellulite reduction and cosmetic treatments that soften lines and wrinkles. If you have chronic neck, back or joint pain, try an acupuncture treatment. Some spas also offer tooth whitening – imagine returning from your cruise with a brighter smile!
If you would like to simply check yourself into the shipboard spa and stay there, some cruise lines even have spa-specialty staterooms, which incorporate luxuries such as jetted bodywash showers, spa-quality toiletries and more. Those staterooms are also located very close to the spa, so your next treatment is just moments away.
