Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, Norwegian Escape, will offer a wide range of spaces for guests to relax and unwind when she makes her debut in October 2015.
The Mandara Spa aboard will be the most innovative to date, noted as a tranquil hideaway that at its epicentre offers the largest Thermal Suite at sea. The spa will span two decks and give unrestricted views of the open ocean. 17 heated loungers, hydrotherapy pool, whirlpools, steam room, dry sauna, samarium and salt room are all available. The Mandara Spa will also offer 24 treatment rooms offering more than 50 signature services for both ladies and gentlemen including the Elemis Aroma Spa Seaweed Massage, Elemis signature facials and body enhancing treatments like the Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow.
In another first for Norwegian Cruise Line, a Snow Room will also feature aboard Norwegian Escape. The Snow Room ranges from 6 to 0 degrees Celsius in temperature and sends out a flurry of powdery snow throughout the day, offering guests a multitude of health benefits, including stimulating blood circulation and strengthening the immune system.
I would love to know your thoughts on the Snow Room. I think it is incredibly unique! Not entirely sure it is somewhere I would want to go if the sun was raging at 25 degrees outside, but I wouldn’t mind popping my head in and having a look for a few minutes. So, would you use it?
Norwegian Escape will also feature Spice H2O and Vibe Beach Club, two adult-only outdoor favourites perfect for lounging away the day. Spice H2O, located at the aft of the ship on deck 17, is an adult-only enclave offering day-time complimentary leisure. A bevy of sun loungers surround a huge video screen, while two hot tubs await for those looking to de-stress. An all-new soothing grotto area, complete with waterfalls and perfect for cooling off from the warm Caribbean sun, will offer an exotic escape. At night, all guests can dance under the stars in this open-air dance club or enjoy a cocktail at the bar with accompanying lounge area, featuring comfortable seating while admiring the ocean views.
Guests aged 18 and over will also have the opportunity to enjoy another private retreat – Vibe Beach Club – by purchasing an access pass. Complete with ocean views, a large hot tub, luxurious chaise longue-style sun loungers and a soothing water feature, Vibe Beach Club will be the ideal spot for adults to escape, offering a serene, comfortable setting while soaking up the sun. A full-service bar, water spritzers and chilled towels complete the exclusive experience.
I really like the idea of the Vibe Beach Club! It is the kind of area I would enjoy, but not sure I would want to pay for it! Why does everything seem to be incurring extra charges these days?
Norwegian Escape is currently being built at the Meyer Werft Shipyward in Germany and at 164,600 GT she will be the largest cruise ship to ever homeport in Miami.
