Mandara Spa

The Mandara Spa spans two decks and offers unobstructed ocean views, 17 heated loungers, a hydro-therapy pool, whirlpools, steam room, dry sauna, sanarium and salt room.

The line's first cold Snow Room offers guests the chance to cool down at temperatures ranging from 21 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The room also sends out a flurry of powdery snow throughout the day. The Snow Room is said to stimulate blood circulation in the body and strengthen the immune system. 

In addition to the Thermal Suite, the spa will have 24 treatment rooms offering more than 50 signature services for both men and women, including massages such as the Elemis Aroma Spa Seaweed Massage; Elemis signature facials such as the luxurious Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Facial; and signature body enhancing treatments like the Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow.

Norwegian Escape's full-service salon will offer hair, nails, waxing and kid-friendly services, along with acupuncture, teeth whitening and cosmetic medical treatments, performed by a licensed medi-spa doctor, such as Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Restylane and Perlane. Additionally, guests can opt for a Thermage CPT treatment, a non-invasive skin rejuvenating therapy that uses radiofrequency to improve the appearance of skin on the face and body. The salon area will also have a Barber Shop, offering exclusive men’s signature services such as the Elemis Pro-Collagen Grooming Treatment with Shave and more.

The ship's fitness center will be furnished with Technogym weight training and cardio equipment. All cardio equipment will synch to Apple music devices and feature a large, HD screen from which guests can watch television, follow a set training program or navigate the playlist. Norwegian group fitness favorites will be offered on board including Pilates, body sculpting boot camp, yoga, Zumba and TRX. Boxing buffs can enjoy Norwegian Fight Klub, a high-intensity cardio boxing class. Personal training sessions will also be available, along with nutritional consultations and metabolic testing.

The ship will also have Spice H2O and Vibe Beach Club, two adult-only outdoor lounges. Spice H20, at the back of the ship on deck 17, has sun loungers surrounding a huge video screen and two hot tubs. The space also has an all-new grotto area with waterfalls. At night, the area transforms into an open-air dance club that serves cocktails at the bar with accompanying lounge area. 

For guests age 18 and up can head to Vibe Beach Club by purchasing an access pass. The club has ocean views, a large hot tub, luxurious chaise loungers and a soothing water feature, as well as a full-service bar, water spritzers and chilled towels.
