Oceania Cruises Debuts Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center

Oceania Cruises has debuted the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center—what the cruise line calls the most “comprehensive spa and wellness center at sea.” As part of the brand’s continued OceaniaNEXT enhancements, the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center extends beyond a traditional spa, offering a collection of holistic wellness experiences both onboard and ashore. The concept will be introduced across all of its six ships this winter.

Here’s what the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center comprises:

Rejuvenating Treatments & Medi-Spa Services

Restorative Himalayan Salt Stone Massage

This restorative massage uses Himalayan salt stones, which improve mental alertness and overall wellbeing; warm salt stones are bathed in personally selected aromatics and help diffuse negative energy, reduce stress and alleviate muscle tension.
