A six star cruise is not only a fantastic way to see iconic and exotic destinations around the world, it also offers the perfect opportunity to simply unwind and enjoy some quality you-time whilst cruising between the ports on your itinerary. Luxury cruise ships always come equipped with plenty of on-board features designed specifically with relaxation in mind, so read on to learn more about the best ways to unwind and enjoy a serene and peaceful time aboard your six star vessel.
At the spa
Indulgent spa treatments are always available aboard luxury cruise ships, offering you the opportunity to truly unwind and enjoy a pampering session from highly trained spa technicians and beauticians. Each cruise line boasts unique on-board spa facilities, but with many you will have to book in advance to make sure you get an ideal time slot, so do your research and don’t expect to just walk in and receive the treatments you want right away.
The Canyon Ranch SpaClub, which can be found aboard Oceania Cruises’ fleet of cruise ships, is one of the most renowned spa facilities at sea. Here you can truly relax and benefit from an array of fabulous treatments, including massages, tanning, body wraps, acupuncture and spiritual healing. With Oceania, access to the spa is also completely complimentary for concierge and suite level guests.
You’ll find spa facilities aboard all of the major luxury cruise lines’ ships, providing one of the most sought-after ways to relax at sea. So book yourself in for your perfect treatment and come back feeling refreshed and reinvigorated.
By the pool
While the scene by the pool on many cruise ships may often be a chaotic one, on a six star voyage you will find nothing but peace and relaxation as you sink into a sun lounger with your favourite book, or lay back to work on your tan. The serene atmosphere found across luxury cruise ships will usually extend to the pool deck, offering guests the perfect place to relax when the sun is shining.
If simply lounging by the pool isn’t for you, why not take a dip? You could swim a few laps of the on-board swimming pool to cool off, or enjoy the bubbling waters of one of many spacious Jacuzzis, which offer a classic and utterly enviable way to relax.
In the bars and lounges
Your luxury ship’s bars and lounges provide the perfect place to unwind with your favourite drink and get to know your fellow like-minded travellers. And with the six star service you can expect on a voyage with the finest cruise lines, you won’t need to worry about tiresome trips to the bar, as wait staff will be on-hand to bring you your beverages whenever you need topping up.
Bars and lounges aboard luxury vessels offer a wonderful sanctuary, equipped with plush, comfortable furnishings and boasting elegant decor throughout, you are sure to enjoy any time spent here. If you’re looking for a little more excitement, however, why not take a trip to your ship’s lively nightclub, or enjoy a night of fun-filled gaming in the on-board casino?
In your suite
Your private suite or stateroom offers the ultimate on-board retreat, to which you can retire after a long and tiring day in port. While you should always explore the decks of your luxury cruise ship to get better acquainted with her, you are more than welcome to simply spend a day at sea in your suite, taking time out to unwind in privacy.
Luxury cruise ship accommodation is available in a variety of sizes and styles, with many suites and staterooms offering plenty of living spaces alongside fantastic amenities including walk-in wardrobes, large bathrooms and exterior balconies. You may also enjoy the services of a professional butler 24 hours a day, who will be on-hand to cater to your every need, from bringing you gourmet dishes at mealtimes to packing and unpacking your belongings for you and much more.
