National Relaxation Day, Care Free Cruising
Today (15 August) is National Relaxation Day in the US, an event which encourages people to reduce their stress levels by making a conscious effort to relax, and take some personal ‘time out’.
The opportunity to completely unwind is something that our customers often look for when booking a cruise holiday. With this in mind, we at The Luxury Cruise Company thought we would share what holidaymakers should look for when seeking a tranquil trip, through this case study of the Crystal Serenity liner which will sail from Miami to Lisbon in April 2013.
SELECTING THE RIGHT SHIP & SERVICE
The itinerary of destinations a liner calls at is an obvious priority when it comes to booking a cruise. Exploring the land of the key cities and landmarks included may offer guests a few chances to kick back and unwind, but it is travelling between these destinations when passengers can indulge in ultimate relaxation.
Choosing an all-inclusive cruise sees your every need catered for.
You will also want to ensure your selected liner comprises plenty of amenities to cater to your needs and keep you entertained during ’ship days’. Crystal Serenity is one example of a cruiser specially designed to meet these needs.
RELAXATION-FRIENDLY FEATURES OF CRYSTAL SERENITY
These are just some of the great features all passengers travelling on the luxurious Crystal Serenity will enjoy:
Endless fine dining options, including a variety of restaurants serving different cuisines, and guest spots from world-renowned chefs. Excellent, taste bud-tingling food rarely fails to equate to happy people
An open bar service throughout the ship. A cocktail - or three - always brings a smile to guests’ faces!
A variety of piano bars, nightclubs and award-winning Broadway-style performances. Boredom is not an option aboard Crystal Serenity
A vast number of educational classes in foreign languages, computer technology, dance, music, art and even more besides. Learning new things can help people to unwind, due to a boost in self-esteem
A state-of-the-art fitness gym. Some people find exercise incredibly rewarding when it comes to remaining content and calm - presumably due to all the extra endorphins!
Colossal, heated outdoor swimming pools. What better way to chill out than with a refreshing dip in the pool?
When it comes to utter relaxation, Crystal Serenity’s onboard luxury spa has to be the most attractive feature. The "World’s only Feng Shui-inspired spa at sea" comprises (separate male and female) steam, sauna rooms, and whirlpools. Endless beauty treatments and relaxing massages are also available for passengers to book.
SUITES & STATEROOMS
Meanwhile, those who book the ’Stateroom’ level of service onboard Crystal Serenity will also benefit from:
Twice-daily housekeeping, so you never have to return to an unkempt room after enjoying the onboard facilities, or exploring each port of call
Kimonos, Frette bathrobes, 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and a menu of different pillow options. A perfect night of sleep is guaranteed
...while ’Penthouse’ service customers will also receive:
A personal butler service
Nightly room-delivered canapés and hors d’oeuvres
A well stocked, free, in-room mini bar
An exclusive room-delivery food service from the ship’s speciality restaurants
How could anyone fail to feel relaxed while travelling aboard this magnificent luxury liner?
NOTE: Some onboard services and facilities will need to be arranged in advance of your cruise. Don’t worry though, the friendly team at The Luxury Cruise Company are more than happy to help you with this.
