Luxury cruise brand Cunard is launching a new concept across its fleet.
The new Mareel Wellness & Beauty was developed in partnership with Canyon Ranch, with plans to launch on the refurbished Queen Elizabeth this month, followed by Cunard’s Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 cruise ships in 2020.
Mareel, which comes from the ancient Norse word for the “phosphorescence of the ocean,” will feature an extended spa treatment menu focused on sea-based treatments.
It’s part of a wider wellness push on the Queen Elizabeth, which will now include a couples suite for seaweed bathing rituals; a meditation room; a redesigned fitness room and studio space and sound therapy facilities in every treatment room.
“We are thrilled to debut our new collaboration with Canyon Ranch, Mareel Wellness & Beauty, onboard the recently enhanced Queen Elizabeth,” said Josh Leibowitz, SVP Cunard North America. “Cunard’s first-ever, uniquely conceived spa concept will offer our discerning guests a new level of luxury wellness at sea – only on Cunard.”
