Norwegian Breakaway Offers Spa and Fitness Innovations

Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Breakaway is launching in late April 2013, featuring a spa with the first-ever salt room at sea and state-of-the-art fitness facility offering a variety of fitness options. The combined spa and fitness area spans two decks, encompassing more than 23,000 square feet.

Norwegian Breakaway’s tranquil Mandara Spa will feature the first-ever salt room at sea. Salt room therapy has been proven to alleviate respiratory and skin ailments, strengthen the immune system, promote better sleep and have a long-term positive impact on overall lung function. The thermal suite also offers guests unobstructed views of the ocean, the opportunity to melt away on one of the 13 heated loungers, vitality pool, whirlpools, sauna, solarium and steam room, along with a full-service salon and barber shop.

The 22 treatment rooms will feature more than 50 signature services for both men and women including Elemis signature facials such as the luxurious “24 Karat Gold Facial,” massages such as the Thai Herbal Poultice Massage, the Bamboo Massage and the Freestyle Massage; and two bliss services: the bliss triple oxygen treatment and the bliss fatgirlslim. Norwegian Breakaway will also offer acupuncture, teeth whitening and cosmetic medical treatments, performed by a licensed medi-spa doctor, such as Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Restylane and Perlane.

The full service salon will offer hair, nail, waxing and special kid-friendly services. The area also features a full service Barber Shop, exclusively for men, offering treatments including haircuts and traditional warm shaves.

Fitness enthusiasts will delight in the variety of fitness programs offered on board Norwegian Breakaway. Guests can choose from a range of innovative fitness options to really get their heart pumping. The ship will feature the first-ever Nexersys interactive fight training modules at sea, offering guests the opportunity to engage in high-intensity, interval training against an avatar, through the use of a simulator. Boxing lovers will also enjoy Norwegian’s all new “Freestyle Fight Klub,” which combines Nexersys training with a cardio boxing class, utilizing the fitness center’s 12 heavy bags.

Those who prefer biking will delight in the first-ever “Black Light Spinning” class at sea. Guests will jump on their spinning bike and pedal away to music in a room lit entirely by black lights and neon graffiti art. The fitness center will also offer a variety of all-new low-impact classes such as “Spirals,” a Pilates-inspired class that utilizes weighted balls for added resistance; and “Chi Balls,” a group class inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, combining elements of yoga, tai chi and meditation.

Guests who prefer to workout independently will enjoy the latest Technogym cardio equipment and weights. All cardio equipment synchs to iPod music devices and features a large, HD screen from which guests can watch television, follow a set training program or navigate the playlist on their iPod.
