Wellness with Royal Caribbean

Being surrounded by the ocean is stress relief in itself, but Royal Caribbean also allows guests to focus on their overall wellbeing through facilities including the sleek onboard spa, the pool decks, the cutting-edge fitness equipment and sessions and the nutritious dining options. We’ve looked at each of these in turn.

Vitality Spa, Fitness & Wellbeing

Whether you’re in the mood for working out or winding down, Vitality℠ Spa & Fitness is a true sanctuary at sea and the place to head to between all the adventures that await you on your cruise.

Pampering treatments and therapies at Vitality range from restorative massages and body wraps to rejuvenating facials, and there’s even the YSpa programme specially for tweens and teens, with specially curated spa treatments and services including manicures and facials designed for younger skin. Meanwhile, those looking for a romantic touch can book a bathing ritual or full body massage designed with couples in mind and make it a proper spa date of it. All this and more besides is available with the spa day pass, which gives you access to exclusive facilities.

For fitness fiends, there are world-class specialised exercise classes and Technogym state-of-the-art facilities to keep those lungs and muscles at their peak, and Vitality also has a beauty salon with manicures, pedicures, make-up and hair services.

Pool Decks

All Royal Caribbean vessels have several spacious alluring pool decks, meaning there’s plenty of scope to seek out a peaceful spot in the sun or the shade. Complimentary loungers, live music and tropical cocktails ensure you’ll want to linger and make the most of every moment.

Healthy Eating

Wherever you choose to eat aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise, you can count on nutritious choices. All head waiters and other staff are delighted to assist with special requests and even ‘off menu’ dishes, which the culinary teams work hard to accommodate where ingredients are available.

The Windjammer buffet has a vast array of healthy options as well as indulgences, from breakfast omelettes at the cook-to-order egg station to fresh fish, light curries, steamed vegetables and lots of salads. Or the main restaurant has an extensive menu of dishes that can often be customised to your tastes and needs – plus, on sea days, the lunchtime Tutti salad bar with its tempting displays.

There’s also Vitality Café with its speciality wraps, sandwiches, salads, fresh fruits and yoghurt, and signature juices, smoothies and protein shakes prepared to your tastes (the latter included in in Deluxe and Refreshment Beverage Packages). These nutritious drinks include the Wake Me Up protein shake with chocolate, peanut butter, banana, whey protein and espresso, the Immune Booster with orange juice, lemon and ginger, Fill Me Up with pineapple, peanut butter, banana and vanilla ice cream, and the detoxing Mean Green Juice with cucumber, green apple, celery and spinach.
