This week CLIA’s #ChooseCruise campaign is highlighting the spa and wellness options for guests to unwind and relax on their cruise.

Andy Harmer, CLIA UK & Ireland director, said: “From invigorating snow rooms to decadent suites and relaxing enclaves, cruise spas have turned personal pampering into an art form.

“Whilst on their cruise holiday, guests can indulge in a lavish selection of massages, wraps, facials and scrubs or lose themselves in thermal suites of cosy hammams, herbal saunas and sultry steam rooms.

“Full service salons promise a range of hair treatments and make-up consultations along with manicures and pedicures, made all the more relaxing with the inevitable backdrop of sea views – something that is a key component of al fresco treatments in a cabana on deck or the privacy of your own balcony.”

Harmer added: “When it comes to all-round health, wellness scores highly with enrichment seminars focusing on weight loss and lifestyle that cover nutritional counselling, detox and cleansing workshops plus skin and body clinics. This approach spreads beyond the spas on some ships with dedicated healthy-eating restaurants, spa cafes and juice bars.

“Anyone wanting to immerse themselves totally in the wellness lifestyle can book spa cabins which come with a package of benefits and treats that generally includes pampering extras and complimentary access to the thermal suites.

“So #ChooseCruise for cruise spas that don’t just give land-based alternatives a run for their money, they outpace them with the most relaxing therapy of all – a mesmerising backdrop of ever-changing views.”

The #ChooseCruise campaign is running globally across CLIA cruise lines this month. The aim of the campaign is to highlight the different onboard experiences on offer through a holiday at sea or on a river ship. From relaxation and fitness, to food and drink, onboard entertainment, family holiday options and themed cruises, there truly is a cruise for everyone.
