Seabourn Spa & Wellness: luxury and relax on the sea

Seabourn Cruise Line, the ultra-luxury cruise experience, has raised the standards of well-being, pampering and relaxation with their updated Spa & Wellness area on board new ships under construction.

The Spa & Wellness area was designed by Adam. D Tihany and will have an area entirely dedicated to it located on deck 7. It will offer endless opportunities for guests to improve their physical and spiritual wellbeing through the Mindful Living program.

Spa & Wellness will certainly be an extraordinary space on our ships, for our guests… for them to be enveloped by feelings of wellbeing, with a bit of adventure, towards the marvels of the world,” said Josh Leibowitz, the president of Seabourn. “In the last year, wellbeing has become fundamental to many people’s lifestyles. For this reason, our highly-qualified staff will be dedicated to a series of mind-body programs and to reinvigorating treatments developed in collaboration with Dr. Weil to guarantee travelers the possibility to relax, reconnect and recharge during their time on board.”

As conceived by Tihany, the creator of the interior design of the ships, Spa & Wellness will be elegant, serene and inviting all at the same time. Its 3,700 square meters of floor space are conceived as a contemporary “floating forest” with details including an artistic mural inspired by trees, a palette of light wood and bronze materials and other wooden elements, to introduce guests in the reception area. The striking natural stone floor reproduces the muted sage and orange colors found throughout the spa, while the branches of the “floating forest” spread like delicate fingers into four soothing treatment rooms, each equipped with neutral wall coverings and furnishings with light wood and hints of bronze.

Tihany’s design touches continue in the yoga and fitness area of the spa, both characterized by a wall of windows (floor-to-ceiling), to allows guests to enjoy the breathtaking views during sailing. The sauna of the wellness center will also have floor-to-ceiling windows, a new design experience for Seabourn Cruise Line.

The onboard Spa & Wellness experience will be connected to the popular Mindful Living program developed by Dr. Andrew Weil and currently available on the entire Seabourn fleet. Led by a specially trained Mindful Living coach, the program will include a holistic approach to mind-body wellness, offering free yoga and guided meditation sessions, as well as enlightening seminars on topics ranging from integrative medicine to nutrition, pain management to creative aging, and more.

Skilled massage therapists will offer face and body massages, as well as detox, cleansing, and wrap treatments. The fitness center, within the spa, will be equipped with a range of cardio-fitness equipment, with a Fitness Director on hand to offer accurate assessments and to instruct guests in various regimens. There will also be a real salon with hairstyling, facials, manicures and pedicures available for women and men.

The launch of the Seabourn Venture is planned for December 2021, with a second twin ship being launched sometime in 2022. The Seabourn Venture will do a series of 10-14 day winter cruises in Norway during its inaugural season between December 2021 and April 2022.

Both ships will be designed and built with different environments to meet PC6 Polar Class standards and will include a range of modern hardware and technology that will enhance the overall capabilities of the ships. An exciting new offering will be two custom built submarines, carried aboard, which will provide an unforgettable view of the world beneath the ocean’s surface. The ships will also be designed to carry expedition kayaks and 24 Zodiacs that can accommodate all guests on board at the same time, which will allow for a truly immersive experience.

Both expedition ships will be equipped with a crew that will include excellent, well-seasoned expedition teams, made up of highly respected wildlife experts, scientists, historians and naturalists. These established experts are also part of the Seabourn Conversations program, providing insights into the history, ecology and culture of the places visited. Each ship will feature 132 luxurious ocean view suites with furnished verandas.

In the coming months we will bring you more details about the common areas and suites. Don’t miss out on all the updates, information and Reviews of Seabourn Cruise Line on Cruising Journal, with photos, opinions, advice and cruise offers.
