If relaxation is your reason for taking a cruise, raise that relaxation to a new level by planning a visit to the onboard spa.
Here are some tips to help you plan your cruise ship spa
If you aren’t sure what type of treatment you’ll like,
visit the spa on embarkation day, when you may be able to take a quick tour and
ask questions. Some spas offer special treatments and discounts only on
embarkation day; discounts may be available on days in port, too.
If you haven’t visited a spa before, you might be surprised
by the cost. The most basic massage on the menu may be $100 or more, and the
more elaborate the treatment, the higher the price. Remember that cruise ship
spas provide high-quality services using top-of-the-line products, and the
prices are usually comparable to similar spas on land. So treat yourself, but
make sure to select a treatment you’ll enjoy.
Onboard spas are very popular, and reservations can fill
quickly. But, different cruise lines have different policies for advance
reservations. Some let you make reservations as soon as you book your cruise,
some make reservations available two or three months in advance, and a few
don’t offer any way to make reservations until you’re on board. Ask your
professional travel advisor about the best way to make spa reservations for
your next cruise.
Expect the spa staff to recommend some products for you to
purchase after your treatment. Don’t let this ruin your post-treatment calm; you
are not required to purchase any products, and if you don’t want to, just say
Finally, if you’d like to make your next cruise all about
the spa, find out about “spa class” cabins. For example, Celebrity Cruises’
AquaClass cabins are equipped with spa-quality amenities and come with access
to a spa concierge and a spa cuisine restaurant, complimentary passes for
fitness classes, and the spa’s thermal suite, and special rates for spa
treatment packages. Ask Anita, your professional travel advisor, about these and other spa class cabins.
