Oceania Cruises to roll out new Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center fleet wide

Oceania Cruises has introduced the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center, which will be available across its fleet of six ships by the end of January, 2020.

Oceania described the new spa concept as “the most unique and comprehensive spa and wellness center at sea”.

It will offer a complete and original collection of holistic wellness encounters both onboard and ashore that supports all dimensions of wellness while encouraging a lifestyle of health and longevity, the company said.

“Our guests love balance – they’re active, they’re leading rich and fulfilled lives. For them, wellness is not a pursuit, it’s a lifestyle,” said Bob Binder, President and CEO for Oceania Cruises. “People are not just living longer, they are living healthier and better and that’s why Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center is the perfect fit for the Oceania Cruises guest.”

The Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center was created by Oceania Cruises and offers an array of wellness encounters designed to enhance the guest experience and encourage personal renewal, the company said, in a statement.

Among the examples of treatments are a restorative Himalayan salt stone massage, acupuncture and wrinkle treatments, among others.

Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center will be introduced aboard Riviera from December 5th, and Sirena and Nautica from December 7th, while Regatta will feature the new spa from January 6th, 2020 and Insignia from January 8th.

Marina will be last to receive the new spa concept, with it debuting on-board from January 22nd.

The introduction of the new spa comes amid Oceania Cruises’ major OceaniaNEXT refit and refurbishment program that has seen several hundred million dollars invested into upgrading the fleet.

The line’s quartet of R-class cruise ships got the bulk of the work with a total overhaul of staterooms and public spaces to bring them on-par with the newer and larger vessels in the fleet.

Insignia, Sirena and Riviera were all refurbished during 2018 and 2019, while Nautica will be last to receive the upgrades, with a drydock scheduled for June, 2020.

The refurbishment of the ships will be followed with phase two of OceaniaNEXT, which will introduce new dining concepts and experiences. These will expand on the new lunch and dinner menus with a global flair, as well as new culinary classes introduced by Oceania in 2018.

In April this year, the cruise line released a halal menu in its main dining room as part of the same product upgrade effort.
