Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest and largest ship, Norwegian Escape, will offer a wide array of spaces for guests to relax and unwind while at sea when the ship debuts in November of 2015. Guests will be transported into sheer serenity with the line’s most innovative Mandara Spa to date, a tranquil hideaway that at its epicenter will feature the largest Thermal Suite at sea, outfitted with the line’s first Snow Room. In addition to the luxurious spa, adults will have two private lounge spaces to enjoy onboard at Vibe Beach Club and Spice H20, which will feature an all-new grotto area for guests to cool off after a day of sunbathing.
Norwegian Escape’s Mandara Spa experience, spanning two decks, will transport guests to a deep state of relaxation, with unobstructed views of the ocean, the opportunity to melt away on one of the 17 heated loungers, or find instant stress relief in the spa’s hydro-therapy pool, whirlpools, steam room, dry sauna, sanarium and salt room.
Once guests have heated up, they can step into the rejuvenating cold Snow Room, a first for the line, and enter into arctic refreshment. The Snow Room, which ranges from a frosty 21 degrees to 32 degrees Fahrenheit, sends out a flurry of powdery snow throughout the day. Norwegian Escape’s Snow Room offers guests a multitude of health benefits, including stimulating blood circulation in the body and strengthening the immune system
Most cruisers sail to get away from the bitter cold and snow, but the Norwegian Escape will invite guests to enjoy the chilly weather at their leisure.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s new ship, slated to debut in October 2015, has some cool attractions, some of which take it to a literal level by offering the cruise line’s first-ever “snow room.”
Located in the ship’s Thermal Suite, the room blows around powdery snow throughout the day, and is kept at a frosty 21 degrees to 32 degrees Fahrenheit (-6 to 0 Celsius).
The cruise line says the snow room provides numerous health benefits, such as stimulating blood circulation in the body and strengthening the immune system.
The health benefits may even go beyond improved blood flow. A study from 2012 suggests that cold temperatures help shed calories, as the body’s “brown fat” takes calories from normal fat to burn when it becomes cold.
