Pampering Yourself on a Cruise

Posted March 15th, 2013

There’s no doubt that rest and relaxation is high up on the agenda for the millions of travellers who set off on a cruise every year. However, if you are considering embarking on your first seabound holiday, then you may be curious as to what activities you can enjoy whilst onboard. Modern cruise liners offer a myriad of options to unwind and pamper yourself – let’s take a look at some of the most popular:

Unwind in the Day Spa

Get your cruise off to a relaxing start with a visit to the onboard day spa. Wave bon voyage to your stress levels as you indulge in a range of treatments including a variety of massage therapies, beauty treatments, acupuncture and much more. There really is no better way to relax and set the tone for the remainder of your trip.

Retail Therapy

Now that you’re looking and feeling a million dollars, why not visit the onboard shopping precinct and treat yourself to a little retail therapy? International cruise lines are able to offer duty-free prices - meaning you’ll enjoy considerable savings on ever popular items such as jewellery, alcohol, cosmetics, electronics and more! There will also be plenty of opportunities for you to lock in some serious shopping time as you dock in a variety of ports throughout your trip so be sure to pack your credit card!

Food, Glorious Food

After a long day of shopping you’ll have no doubt built up a healthy appetite! Fortunately you will have a multitude of dining options to choose from, ranging from lavish buffet spreads to formal fine dining – the choice is yours. If you’re simply too tired to make your way to one of the on-board restaurants you can simply kick back in your suite and order room-service. Every aspect of a cruise is tailored to providing a range of options to suit your mood.

Too much food? Hit the gym!

If you, like many others, find the culinary delights found on a cruise ship just too hard to resist then perhaps you might like to incorporate a work-out into your daily activities. World-class exercise facilities can be found on the majority of cruise ships, offering a range of classes and equipment to help you work off last night’s third helping of dessert.

Keeping the Kids Happy

Cruises are a fantastic way to spend some quality time with your children. However, there may come a time onboard when you wish to experience some ‘me’ time without the added concern for your children’s whereabouts and safety. Many ships have age-appropriate kids activities and facilities, ensuring that you can relax in the knowledge that your little ones are enjoying their cruise experience just as much as you are.

No matter what your idea of a relaxing holiday may be - cruise ships offer opportunities for every member of the family to pamper themselves and enjoy a well deserved break.
