Taking time out in the pool, relaxing and recharging the batteries has always been a prime objective of cruising. But Celebrity Cruises has taken this to a whole new level with its’ new Celebrity Reflection ship.
With exotic sounding treatments such as Tahitian ceremony of flowers, Egyptian Milk and Ginger, Asian Stones, Ionithermie algae-detoxes it has on-board facilities to challenge any of the famous land based spas. The extended AquaSpa by Elemis has a 883 sq ft Persian Garden located within it. It offers 15 heated ergonomic tiled beds to relax the spine and muscles. During the cruise special evenings will be held such as ‘Girlz Night’, a women only social evening and ‘Couples Night’ for those wanting a more intimate experience.
The Persian Garden has a sensory circuit containing a Hammam, an amazing sauna experience which, in addition to heating the skin, also uses infrared to penetrate deep into the joints for an extreme relaxation. There’s also a normal sauna, steam room with aromatherapy, and to finish off (if you dare) the ‘Cold Room’ that has icy floors and walls to shock your pores into closing up and keeping all that lovely moisture in your skin.
DIY – make your own body scrubs:
If you’ve always wanted to create your own beauty products, take the chance to make scrubs from a variety of salts, herbs and sugars at the “DIY Salt and Scrub Bar”. You can then use these in the sensory shower area – imagine warm tropical rain forests, fruity fragranced waterfalls and arctic mist showers with eucalyptus to stimulate your skin and senses.
A revolutionary new treatment called “Rhythm and Bliss” will also be available. For this treatment, instead of listening to the warbling of whales, or swishing of the sea, guests can chose their own list of music from Rock, Classical, Ethnic or Relax. This is piped through earphones to cut out any outside distractions and as the therapist hears the same music, the massage is co-ordinated to the rhythm with either long slower motions or more quicker more intense pressure.
Other treatments available include cosmetic interventions such as Botox, Dysport injections, dermal skin fillings, and for your hair, Keratin Complex smoothing therapy which will leave your hair in the best condition you’ve seen for years. (And you might be interested to hear that it’s rumored Kate Middleton herself uses Keratin on her own hair, to get her straight and shiny locks!)
With luxurious staterooms, state of the art technology and exquisite gastronomical experiences, a holiday on board the Celebrity Reflection will give you the chance to totally relax and de-stress whilst on your cruise of a lifetime.
