Dedicated wellness cruises to launch in 2019
Blue World Voyages is planning to launch the world’s first wellness holiday on water next summer, promoting a new ‘Active Lifestyle Cruising’ product package.
Scheduled for a summer 2019 launch in the Mediterranean, the 350-passenger ship will have one entire deck designated for sports, and a second dedicated to spa and rejuvenation.
With locally-sourced farm-to-table cuisine, active shore excursions, partnerships with specialist fitness and spa experts, it is set to be the ultimate cruise experience for fitness-focused adults.
With the global wellness industry now worth $4.2 trillion, and wellness tourism experiencing a 6.5 per cent annual growth – more than double the growth rate for overall tourism – Blue World Voyages is leading the way for wellness travel.
Gene Meehan, the company’s chairman and founder, said: “Blue World Voyages was created for health-conscious individuals, sports and fitness enthusiasts, and those in search of personal improvement.
“Our focus on Active Lifestyle Cruising is deeply embedded into every aspect of the company, from ship design and onboard programmes to dining options and itineraries.”
The bow-to-stern Sports Deck offers golf and football simulators; a functional training centre; yoga, spinning and TRX studios; and a sports medicine clinic. There are three pools, including a sea water lap-pool for open water training. On the Spa Deck, guests can enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and the largest on-water spa (per person) in the world.
The Mediterranean destinations will be based on the best locations for activities such as cycling, hiking, golf and watersports, access to areas conducive to yoga and meditation, and opportunities for cultural and learning experiences.
