Is there anything better than a day at sea in the spa aboard a cruise ship? If you have not visited a spa on a cruise ship lately you really have no idea what you are missing.
On the new cruise ships today you’ll find dozens of treatment rooms, separate changing areas for men and women (sometimes with steam and sauna) plus relaxation lounges. Thermal Suites are in style today — these oases of calm outfitted with steam, sauna, various types of showers, heated loungers and sometimes a hydrotherapy pool (which you can visit for a fee).
Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway both have Salt Rooms; the dramatic salt crystal-filled grottos that mimic the natural salt caves found in Eastern Europe. The salt is said to be good for respiratory and skin ailments. The Norwegian Escape, which debuts this fall, will have both a Salt Room and Snow Room in its Thermal Suite.
Need a break? Take up temporary residence in one of the serene and rejuvenating accommodations on NCL – which include The Haven Spa Suite, Spa Mini-Suite and Spa Balcony. Enjoy access to the Mandara Spa and complimentary use of the Thermal Spa Suites, sauna, hydrotherapy pools, steam room and heated loungers. All you have to do is unpack and say ahhh.
