Most cruise lines offer full-service spas but these five are our favorite. Not only do these spas offer standard services, these go above and beyond in terms of your wellness and relaxation.
LivNordic Spa-Viking’s Ocean Cruises
Since Viking prides itself on its Scandinavian culture, one can’t be surprised to see that LivNordic Spa offers a “Nordic Bathing Ritual” as part of their services. This is the experience of relaxing in a steaming hot sauna then going directly into invigorating snow. On the ship, hills of snow are replicated by a snow room where a foot of snow covers the floor and icicles hang from the ceiling. In addition to this amazing ritual, LivNordic offers many of the standard spa services including facials and wraps. And of course, they offer a wonderful Swedish Massage that can’t be missed.
Mandara Spa-Norwegian Cruise Lines
East meets West at the Mandara Spa only on Norwegian Cruise Lines. This Balinese originated spa roots itself in practicing the spiritual healing of the “Island of the Gods”. Traditions passed down through generations bring you more than fifty treatment options to soothe your body and soul. Things here really heat up with a wide range of hydrotherapies, saunas, and heated tile lounge chairs. Simply sit back and find your Zen.
When it comes to both mind and body rejuvenation , Canyon Ranch has it all. Canyon’s holistic approach includes services like wellness workshops and fitness classes.
