FOR YEARS, PASSENGERS
would head to the spa or fitness center for their fill of wellnessrelated activities. Now those healthy offerings are being incorporated into land excursions as well. Regent, for example, recently introduced Seven Seas Wellness, a new program that pairs a curated selection of Canyon Ranch SpaClub services with wellness-themed excursions, such as an intimate Tai Chi class in the garden courtyard of the Pharo Palace in Marseilles, France, or a visit to the hydrothermal pools of the Stufe di Nerone Baths in Sorrento, Italy. Debuting this past summer [ 2017] on Seven Seas
Voyager Mediterranean cruises, the program proved so popular, it’s slated to return next year.
“For many of our guests, the pursuit of well- being is an essential part of a life well lived,” says Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent. “From eating right and exercising to practicing ways to reduce stress and experience moments that uplift the spirit, wellness is quickly becoming the ultimate luxury.”
Another program, Wellness Tours Inspired by Canyon Ranch aboard Oceania Cruises, also features wellness- oriented excursions, such as a laughter session to reduce stress in a restored farmhouse hotel in Spain and a tranquil meditation and yoga session followed by a wholesome plant- based lunch at a stunning wine estate in Corfu, Greece.
