WINNER: CELEBRITY CRUISES
What we say: Known for their pioneering work with renowned spa brand, Canyon Ranch, Celebrity Cruises has won this year’s category for spa and wellness. The ships are equipped with beautiful facilities like the Persian Garden, the aquatherapy area, and guests can indulge in vitamin infusion facials and organic sea salt scrubs. As part of the freshly redesigned wellness programme, cruisers can get acupuncture for pain relief, do pilates to pop tunes or try the Japanese interval workout, Tabata.
What you say: “Can’t go past Celebrity Cruises. We haven’t sailed on many other lines but their variety of classes as well as options to eat healthier, is second to none.” Amber Hogan
What they say: “We’re thrilled to be chosen by our cruisers as best at sea for spa and wellness. Our aspiration for all Celebrity Cruises ships is to provide our guests with a deeper, more profound connection to the sea through luxury and relaxation. Whether it’s onboard massages or shore excursions focused on wellness, it’s fabulous to know our guests love these experiences as much as we love providing them. We’re very much looking forward to unveiling The Spa to guests on Celebrity Edge in November, the height of luxury pampering at sea.” Susan Bonner, VP and Managing Director, RCL Cruises, Australia and New Zealand
