The newest addition to Celebrity's innovative Edge-series, Celebrity Beyond brilliantly bends the boundaries when it comes to luxury cruising - in its design, style and serious facilities. Whilst waking up in a new destination daily is infinitely exciting, particularly when enjoying one of Celebrity's many shore excursions, holidays are all about unwinding too. Luckily, the luxury cruise ship strikes the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation, home to wellness facilities that rival - if not exceed - those of many luxury hotels.
A Spa at Sea
Determined to nourish your mind, body and soul during your luxury cruise, The Spa is a serene sanctuary, offering an array of cutting-edge therapies that combine the latest scientific technologies with the power of the earth's elements: water, earth and air. Signature treatments include a rejuvenating BIOTECT anti-aging facial, a calming wave massage and aromatherapy experience using natural seaweed, whilst acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine and dedicated pain management treatment are also on offer. The Spa's treatment menu also changes slightly depending on where you're sailing, always offering a destination-themed selection of treatments - whether a coconut-infused manicure in the Caribbean or a massage using native Italian rosemary as you cruise the Mediterranean.
Along with the tranquil treatment rooms, The Spa is home to the utterly unique SEA Thermal Suite - an immersive space that features eight distinctive therapeutic experiences, all inspired by nature, to enjoy before or after your main therapy. Highlights include a Hammam, crystalarium filled with amethysts, a salt cave, steam room, meditative 'float room' and renewing rainfall water therapy room. If you stay in one of the AquaClass®suites (which I'll talk about in more detail in a second), access to this multi-sensory playground is complimentary.
If all that wasn't enough, a whole host of beauty options can also be enjoyed in The Spa's salon - whether an ultra-luxe Kérastase hair treatment or advanced dermal fillers and Botox.
If you're keen to take your wellness experience to the next level as you sail to some of the world's most alluring destinations, you must choose an AquaClass® stateroom or suite. These calming hideaways have been designed to offer a fully immersive, next-level wellbeing experience, complete with huge sea-facing verandas, cashmere mattresses, pillow menus, a yoga-mat, a massaging showerhead, eco-friendly bath products and on-demand wellness programming on your stateroom TV. Other health-focused benefits include nutritious room-service menus, a complimentary fitness pass, spa concierge, preferential spa rates and, of course, unlimited access to the superb SEA Thermal Suite. What's more, as a guest in the AquaClass®, you will also be invited to enjoy breakfast and dinner (should you wish) at the exclusive Blu Restaurant, where menus focus on clean, crisp flavours and spa-inspired dishes, along with an extensive list of sustainable and biodynamic wines.
Heading on holiday doesn't mean neglecting your work out regime. In fact, with the first-class fitness facilities on board, we imagine you'll be more inclined to exercise than ever! Embrace the very latest equipment as you admire sea views from the gym's floor-to-ceiling windows or join in with one of the many fitness classes. One of the fastest growing fitness networks in the world, F45 is available onboard, specialising in innovative, high-intensity group workouts that are sure to get your heart pumping. Other options include Peloton® virtual classes, road cycling-style spinning, cardio boxing, bungee fitness and Barre. For a slower paced exercise hit, there's Zen yoga, guided meditation and breathing classes, whilst body composition tests, personal training and nutrition consultations are also on offer. Whatever you choose, refuel afterwards with a fresh juice from the Spa Café.
If you hadn't already realised, wellbeing is a huge part of the Celebrity experience. Founder and CEO of modern lifestyle brand, goop (as well as a world-famous actress, of course) Gwyneth Paltrow is Celebrity's dedicated Wellbeing Advisor, and has contributed to several wellness features onboard - including hand-selected goop products for the in-room fitness menus, TV programming and a signature smoothie.
