Spas at Sea: Cruise vacations to soothe your soul.

There’s a magical moment when you sail away on a cruise ship, as the spray of sea air and anticipation of adventures ahead sweep away all your stresses. The beauty is that you can also seek out onboard sanctuaries throughout your voyage. Double up on indulgence in some of our favorite spas at sea.

Since opening its doors in Tucson, Arizona, in 1979, Canyon Ranch® has set the gold standard for mindful living and wellness vacations. Step into Canyon Ranch® spa + fitness on Oceania Cruises®, and you’ll fall in love with soothing tones reminiscent of the ocean. Let us reserve your day pass to enjoy the healing salt waters of a thalassotherapy pool and sun deck. Canyon Ranch is renowned for services such as a sleep-encouraging massage and meditation, and a detoxifying body ritual to cleanse, scrub and brighten your skin. The benefits don’t end there, as Oceania Cruises boasts a collection of Wellness Tours Inspired by Canyon Ranch, from yoga and wine tasting in Greece to Ayurvedic treatments in India.

You can also experience Canyon Ranch spa + fitness on Celebrity Cruises®.  The Persian Garden is your gateway to relaxation with an aromatic steam room, an herbal sauna, and other serene spaces. (A tip: Let us book your AquaClass stateroom for complimentary entrance into the Persian Garden.) You can also create a wellness program that includes acupuncture and medi-spa facial treatments. Newly designed experiences may introduce you to a newfound pastime, like a high-intensity, Japanese-inspired Tabata Impact workout or a form of “spiritual” indoor cycling.

Find bliss on Norwegian Cruise Line® at Mandara Spa®, one of the world’s most luxurious spas with locations scattered across the globe. On select ships, sink into relaxation within the Mandara Thermal Suite, inspired by the traditional Turkish bath experience. Breakaway-class ships offer the healing powers of salt therapy in special chambers designed after natural salt caves. Signature services such as a hot-stone massage and an exfoliating ritual are presented alongside contemporary treatments like a revolutionary enzyme facial, a unique ice-cool massage and a skin-smoothing cellulite reduction.

We love Seabourn for its holistic perspectives toward wellness, anchored by its Spa and Wellness enrichment programs created by Dr. Andrew Weil. Join experienced guides in journeys through meditation and yoga, participate in lectures on anti-inflammatory foods and healthy aging, and incorporate wellness into your shore excursion on select voyages. Then, of course, there’s the Spa at Seabourn℠  that’s replete with high-end treatments: a 24-karat gold facial, a couples massage and bathing ritual, and individualized personal training and nutritional consulting, among others.

On a cruise line that features a specially crafted Princess Luxury Bed, the adults-only Sanctuary, and classes that encompass everything from Zumba to tai chi, it’s no wonder that Princess Cruises® also has an award-winning spa. We especially appreciate Lotus Spa for its head-to-toe services, from teeth whitening to a bamboo body treatment to a foot massage.

Embrace the flow of the only feng shui-inspired spa at sea! Crystal Spa and Salon on Crystal Cruises® creates the ideal ambiance as you relax under a canopy before your treatment. With a menu of options like a Japanese silk protein facial and a quartz crystal treatment bed — molded by heated quartz sand — you’re sure to discover an experience that rejuvenates and refreshes.
