Oceania Cruises has revealed it will be introducing a ‘new era of wellness’ across its fleet. As part of the OceaniaNEXT enhancements, the brand new Aquamar Spa and Vitality Centre will be the most comprehensive and unique at sea.
The centre will be implemented on-board all six Oceania Cruises ships by the end of 2019. It will enhance the experience of a traditional spa, offering a completely original collection of holistic wellness encounters both on-board and ashore. The schedule for the implementation of the new spa and centre is as follows:
The treatments and experiences are designed to enhance the guest experience and encourage personal renewal, from rejuvenating encounters to Discovery Tours by Aquamar. These include:
Aquamar Spa treatments
Restorative Himalayan Salt Stone Massage: A deeply restorative massage with Himalayan salt stones, improving mental alertness and overall wellbeing.
Acupuncture: A popular alternative therapy which complements and enhances traditional medicines. This treatment is said to effectively treat insomnia, weight gain, anxiety and pain management.
Dysport Wrinkle Treatments: This softens fine lines and wrinkles on the upper face for a refreshed, youthful appearance. Smoother-looking skin is also visible within days and lasts up to four months.
Lifestyle seminars and wellness Discovery Tours
Reflexologist On Rice Barge – Bangkok, Thailand
While cruising the calm waters of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River on a historical, wooden rice barge, guests will benefit from reflexology, a foot therapy thought to enhance relaxation and reduce pain. A traditional reflexologist will gently apply pressure to the feet, following a foot chart that details the corresponding organs and body systems.
Wellness & Mindfulness at Viña Casa Marin – Santiago de Chile, Chile
This unique experience pairs yoga, pranayama breathing and mindful meditation with a gourmet luncheon at a picturesque boutique winery, Viña Casa Marin, where guests will also learn about its history and micro-terroirs.
The Wonders of Apitherapy – Seville, Spain
At a beekeeping farm in the picturesque Andalusian countryside, guests will discover the myriad advantages of apitherapy, which focuses on the many benefits of honeybee products, such as raw honey, pollen, royal jelly and even bee venom. The resident apitherapy specialist will illustrate the benefits of each product, from boosting the immune system to alleviating pain.
Aquamar Vitality Cuisine
The flavourful Aquamar Vitality Cuisine can also be enjoyed in the Grand Dining Room, where healthy options are available alongside Oceania’s extensive plant-based and vegetarian dishes. Freshly pressed juices, smoothies and energy bowls are also served. Dishes include:
Breakfast: Green apple müesli with pistachios, pecans and yellow raisins; avocado toast on rustic farmer’s bread
Lunch: Wakame sesame salad; Hawaiian poke bowl
Dinner: Som tam green papaya kelp noodle salad; roasted butternut squash with arugula, mango, black radish and hearts of palm
Fitness classes and personal training
The new implementation also comes alongside a range of complimentary fitness classes, access to the state-of-the-art fitness centre and customisable personal training sessions. Fitness classes include yoga, Pilates, cycling and circuit-based training.
