Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced a new spa brand: Serene Spa & Wellness. Originally designed for the upcoming Seven Seas Splendor, the cruise line said that it has decided to expand the concept to its entire fleet, starting this winter. The new brand will offer treatments, techniques and ingredients from destinations around the world.
The new spa brand will launch with the Seven Seas Explorer's December 7, 2019, sailing, followed by the January 6 and 7, 2020, sailings of the Seven Seas Mariner and Seven Seas Voyager, respectively. It will debut on the Seven Seas Navigator on its January 23, 2020, sailing, and on the Seven Seas Splendor on its February 6, 2020 sailing.
The menu of services will reflect treatments originating from many of the destinations to which the cruise line sails. The lineup includes ELEMIS facial therapies, body treatments, massages, manicures, pedicures, luxury Kérastase salon services, fitness classes and personal training, as well as a series of wellness tours and nutritionally mindful cuisine selections served in Regent’s onboard restaurants.
In addition to traditional spa services, destination-inspired treatments that will be on offer include:
The Regent Massage. (Destination Inspiration: Sea Buckthorn from the Mediterranean coast)
