Oceania to Launch Wellness Tours With Canyon Ranch

Oceania Cruises added Sirena to its fleet in 2016, with a new dining concept, a Canyon Ranch SpaClub and upgraded entertainment offerings. Seen here is the living room of the 786-square-foot Vista Suite.

Oceania Cruises and Canyon Ranch are launching a new tour series, Wellness Tours Inspired by Canyon Ranch.

Building on Oceania’s existing partnership with the Canyon Ranch, which places the wellness brand’s Canyon Ranch SpaClub at Sea facilities onboard Oceania’s cruise ships, the new tour series will debut with Oceania Riviera’s and Oceania Marina’s April 9 and April 10, 2017, sailings. Tours will initially be offered in France, Spain, Italy, and Greece.

Billed as a “complete wellness getaway at sea,” guests on each tour will begin their day with healthy Canyon Ranch breakfast options in the Grand Dining Room, such as a three egg-white omelet with seasonal vegetables and cheese. Next comes a wellness tour in Taormina, Sicily, including a yoga class. Back on board, guests might round out the day with a treatment at the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, such as a soothing Canyon Stone Massage or a detoxifying Seaweed Leaf Wrap. Come dinnertime, guests can enjoy healthy Canyon Ranch selections in the Grand Dining Room, such as the steamed Maine lobster atop savory Castilla-La Mancha saffron rice followed by warm, fragrant chocolate cake.

With the debut of the new wellness tour series, Oceania Cruises is also offering Canyon Ranch wellness specials, pairing select Canyon Ranch SpaClub treatments with the new tours, offering guests savings. Reservations for Wellness Tours Inspired by Canyon Ranch will open on April 1, 2017.

Here are some of the highlights of the new wellness tours:

The Pope’s Thermal Baths | Civitavecchia, Italy – Guests will enjoy an afternoon of heavenly relaxation and restorative benefits at the Viterbo Terme dei Papi, or the Thermal Baths of the Popes. Originating in Etruscan times, the exclusive baths have a thousand-year-old therapeutic tradition that has served kings, popes and artists throughout history.

Vinyasa Yoga at Monte Carlo Bay | Monte Carlo, Monaco – Perched on a beautiful peninsula overlooking the Mediterranean, the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort offers guests a private vinyasa yoga class, a dynamic style of yoga recognized for a host of mind-body benefits.

The Greek Gods of Wellness | Corfu, Greece – Guests will have the chance to tour the vineyard and herb plantation of Ambelonas, an artisanal organic goods company and wine estate in Greece, followed by a tranquil meditation and yoga session and a plant-based lunch.

The Life of Laughter | Palamos, Spain – This tour invites guests to discover the myriad benefits of laughter, including the rush of stress-reducing endorphins released as they enjoy a joyful laughter session in a restored farmhouse-hotel in the heart of Costa Brava.
