Going on holiday for most of us is all about switching off from our day to day lives and escaping to somewhere away from home. Some of us even take it that extra step further when it comes to escaping and take a trip to a spa for that next level of relaxation. As many of you may well know, cruise ships are well-known for their luxury spas on board and offer a huge range of services for their guests to enjoy.
Services that many cruise lines offer include, time spent in the spa, hot stone massages and beauty treatments. One cruise line that seems to be not just offering spa services but really making it a huge part of their ships is Virgin Voyages.
Their wellness spaces onboard provide a proper dose of ‘Vitamin Sea’ to leave guests totally restored and ready for anything and everything during and after their holiday. So if you want to find out all there is to know about Virgin Voyages wellness offering, please continue reading;
Let’s start at the top of the ship…here guests will find Virgin Voyages Aquatic Club. With smooth curves and nautical details, they’ve created a pool deck with the sophisticated glam of a contemporary yacht. It’s the perfect spot to soak up the sun on one of their relaxing sunbeds and take a dip in the pool when you’re ready for a cool down.
Build & Balance
This state of the art gym is dedicated to weights, stretching, core exercises and a yoga studio that also offers a wide range of free fitness classes. Not only that, guests can book personal training sessions if you’re looking for one-on-one attention!
Bike & Burn
If you’re looking for some serious cardio whilst onboard, then you need to head to Bike & Burn. Try one of their state of the art running machines, rowers, or spin it out in their cycling studio where the group classes are free.
Their training camp is where you can take one of their many complimentary group fitness classes. From HIIT to breathing classes their fitness classes come in all shapes and sizes so there really is something for everyone. Plus, if you’d like to just try a class on your own, you can follow along on one of their Fitness On Demand apps.
From massages so good they’ll make you question life itself, to a mudroom that will revitalise your body and soul, they call it Redemption for a reason. Their Thermal Suite includes a mudroom, salt room, sauna, steam room, hot and cold plunge pools as well as marble hammam benches.
We all like to spruce ourselves up once in a while, especially after a fun-filled day onboard a Virgin Voyages ship. Head down to their Dry Dock blowout bar for a serious blow-dry or treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure. It’s time to make yourself look as good as you feel.
Gym & Tonic
There’s nothing better than a refreshing drink after a workout. Gym & Tonic is a juice bar with a myriad of drinks to help you wind down after giving your all. From made-to-order shakes and fresh or cold-pressed juices to their Reset Cocktails that are healthy in spirit, there’s no better way to relax after a workout session.
Sun Club Cafe
After sweating it out in the gym, you may be after a big nutritious meal. Head to the Sun Club Cafe where they offer dishes inspired by the Hawaiian islands, with marinated tuna, chicken and salmon over greens or rice bowls. Fresh, tasty and healthy, they’re high in lean protein and healthy fats while giving you a sunny dose of veggies or whole grains.
