The Perfect Pampering Day

By HannahTuesday 27th August 2013



If you’re anything like me, you probably save pampering activities for when your bank balance is healthy, you have plenty of time for yourself, or you have a special occasion coming up that you need to look glowing, healthy and relaxed for.

The ‘me time’ you get on a cruise holiday is a good opportunity to treat yourself to all the things that you can’t usually fit into your busy schedule. I always find my beauty regime steps up a notch when I’m on holiday. Suddenly I find time to repaint my toenails every 2 days or smooth a clay mud facemask onto my skin and let it work its magic for 15 minutes.
cabanasWith this in mind, here’s our guide to the perfect pampering day on a Royal Caribbean cruise…

Find peace in the adult-only solarium

The adult-only solarium is the ideal place to relax with a book without disturbances. So you can power-through the pages and really lose yourself in that novel. Or, relax in the Jacuzzi while you soak up the sun through the glass-structure.
If you want to lounge there for longer you can stop those hunger pangs by grabbing a free snack from the café. You might find yourself chatting with fellow cruisers and passing the time with a card game. And, if you get there early enough you can bag your very own cabanas, completely free of charge and overlooking the sea…bliss.

Relax in the whirlpool

After exploring new destinations, dancing all night or challenging yourself to the onboard climbing wall, you’ll want to soothe your muscles. Head to the cantilevered whirlpools on Oasis and Freedom of the Seas and submerge into warm waters. They extend beyond the edge of the ship so you’ll see uninterrupted views that are hard to beat.

whirlpoolFind your inner calm

You really can’t top a trip to the spa for pampering mind, body and soul. Whether you want to pamper your skin, nails, muscles, or need help alleviating a health problem, you’re sure to find relief at the Vitality Day Spa. Our Vitality programme at the spa is indulgent and transformative. Treatments include La Thérapie HydraLift (a youth-enhancing facial) and the Elemis Absolute Spa Ritual, which consists of one hundred minutes of pampering with a facial and massage that will leave you rested from head to toe.

Pampering for men

Men deserve pampering too. As well as the full range of spa treatments, you’ll find a great list of barbering services including an express-shave, grooming treatments and beard trim. If you’re a couple both looking to be pampered then book yourselves in for our Couples Massage, in our suite reserved for couples, where you can lie side by side.

Transform your look

We all know that getting your hair done gives you a confidence boost. A holiday is also the perfect opportunity to show-off a new do. Whether you want a classy up-do for a formal dinner or a natural cut to keep your hair in good condition in the summer sun, visit our onboard hair salons for some TLC.
