While cruising is becoming more and more popular as a whole, wellness cruises are starting to become just as inviting. People are craving not just any vacation. They want to see the sights and experience the activities but they also want to put their physical and mental well-being first. Wellness cruises offer you the typical things you’ll see on an ocean or river cruise and so much more. When it’s all done, you’ll feel more refreshed than you’ve felt in years!
Immersive River Cruising
There’s nothing like an immersive river cruise that not only offers you the best sights but the best activities to take your mind off everything. Avalon Waterways offers just that. They show their passenger’s cultures in one of the most engaging ways imaginable by offering culinary tours, cooking and painting classes, Roman reenactments, and archery lessons. You can even help farmers work their land. Wherever you dock, you’ll know that there will be tons of immersive activities to really surround you in the culture.
Balancing The Body And Mind
At AmaWaterways, both the body and the mind are focused on during their wellness river cruises. They value great workouts on board as well as strengthening family connections. They also have very healthy menus at all of their restaurants.
Physical, Social, Environmental & Spiritual Well-Being
You can work on your wellness with an actual doctor aboard Seabourn’s Spa & Wellness add-on. Dr. Weil works with the river cruise to teach passengers how to balance their physical, social, environmental, and spiritual well-being. Each ship also comes with a Mindful Living Coach, who is a certified yoga and meditation practitioner. They’ll “inspire and educate” guests with orientations, seminars, and classes. There’s also the Mindful Living Program, which will further enhance passenger’s experience.
Get Up, Get Going & Stay Fit
Staying active on river cruises from Uniworld is critical. With seasoned wellness advisors at the ready, you can work on your physical wellness the right way, both on and off the shore. It’s about getting up, getting going, and staying fit. So your day could look like this: Sunrise yoga on the top deck in the morning, maybe a TRX® Suspension Training class later on, or work out at your own pace at the well-equipped fitness center. Then, you can relax at the Serenity River Spa™, get a facial or massage treatment, or swim in the heated pool. Menus are light and meant to nourish you for the busy day ahead. Excursions are also physically based, so bring perfect walking shoes.
