Royal Princess Lotus Spa & Fitness Facilities
Increasingly, spa and fitness facilities are gaining prominence on cruise ships. Some vacationers simply don’t want to break their fitness routines, and so they appreciate it when they find extensive gym facilities — and classes — on today’s modern ships. Others seek restoration and rejuvenation in ship spas while cruising.
During my June 2013 voyage on the new Royal Princess, I enjoyed both activities. I visited the Lotus Spa for a Thai Coconut Poultice Massage ($155 for 50 minutes) and the Lotus Spa Fitness Center, where I worked out each day for about 45 minutes. Burning calories gave me justification for another ice cream each time I passed Gelato, situated in the atrium on deck 5 on Princess Cruises’ newest vessel.
What’s your interest? Do you enjoy working out on cruise? Or do you want to be pampered? Certainly, you don’t need to choose. You can do both — as I did on my voyage.
