Some of the best wellness experiences are now at sea. A voyage with Oceania Cruises means your healthy lifestyle is integrated seamlessly with your travels around the world – or even enhanced. Staying in shape and focusing on your wellness is easy with the new amenities and experiences introduced with the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center. Wake up to a freshly pressed raw juice and sunrise yoga and later enjoy an enlightening meditation session or a soak in ancient thermal baths ashore – it’s all possible on your next wellness cruise with us.
Read on for our favorite healthy cruise experiences that will leave you feeling even more refreshed and renewed than when you stepped on board.
TAKE FREE FITNESS CLASSES
Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center includes access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, plus a range of free fitness classes. Try a yoga flow class that calls on breathwork to string together a series of flowing poses or a Pilates class that focuses on your core. At the other end of the spectrum, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) classes await for those who thrive in high-energy exercise classes. Check Currents, the daily onboard newsletter, for the schedule of cruise fitness classes.
ENJOY GOURMET HEALTHY & PLANT-BASED FOOD
You’ll find Aquamar Vitality Cuisine featured in The Grand Dining Room – these flavorful options are exceptionally light, healthy and balanced. Savor dishes like kelp noodle salad with cashew-miso cream and tamari mushrooms; a Yucatan black bean burger with a charcoal bun and mango pico de gallo; herb-crusted tuna; and a strawberry-coconut cream tartlet. You can also try tantalizing plant-based cuisine on all of our ships. The variety is enormous – more than 500 dishes constitute the most expansive plant-based menus at sea. Expect to see tempting options like the Osaka Power Bowl with soba noodles, miso-glazed eggplant, tofu, edamame and wakame salad with orange-miso dressing; the Impossible cheeseburger and baked apple plougastel. Last but certainly not least, on board Marina and Riviera, you can begin mornings with raw juices, plant-based smoothies and delicious energy bowls at the only cold-pressed Raw Juice & Smoothie Bar at sea. How’s that for healthy cruise food?
TRY AN EASTERN TREATMENT
Why not take time on your next voyage with Oceania Cruises to try an Eastern treatment like our Vital Essence Bamboo Massage, which uses warm bamboo stalks to work deeper into your muscles, or even acupuncture or a Chinese herbal medicine consultation? You might be surprised at the results. Acupuncture is an increasingly popular well-being practice recognized for its myriad benefits, while Chinese herbs have been used as part of the traditional Chinese medicine system for thousands of years to help to alleviate many health issues.
