Competition of cruise lines continues to heat up as companies vie for the luxury market segment with extra perks and upscale amenities. Every company wants a piece of the burgeoning Millennial pie (big spenders who reached maturity in 2000) and Crystal Cruises is right on the bandwagon with the placement of extravagant Italian ETRO Spa products in the suites and staterooms of the Symphony and Serenity.
In addition to the new luxury products, Crystal is also adding a menu of Medi-Spa Cosmetic Treatments at the spa that will raise the beauty bar on the selection of specialty massages, acupuncture, body wraps and facial services. So while you cruise you can also take advantage of the type of face-saving treatments normally reserved for landside spas. We’re talking anti-aging noninvasive procedures such as:
- Target Wrinkle Treatments – that turn that frown upside by reducing deep lines , and diminishing crow’s feet.
- Dermal Filler Treatment – targeted to restore youthful contours on the lower face, focusing on smile, lip and marionette lines; replacing lost fullness; and
- Thermage® CPT – the premier non-invasive skin tightening therapy, utilizing radiofrequency to improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin on the face, neck and abdominal region.
Crystal assures that all Medi-Spa consultations and treatments are performed by a fully-licensed medical doctor. As always the cruise line will offer free seminars on beauty topics from non-surgical facelifts and liquid facelifts to the latest in facial rejuvenation and skin tightening.
If that’s not enough the line is also debuting the MLX Quartz bed on the Serenity. This is a bed that comprises a base made of alpha-quartz sand, which can be selectively heated to varying temperatures, to help alleviate pain and enhance comfort. The malleable sand surface is covered with a hygienic polyurethane-coated sheet to prevent it from adhering to skin, while also promoting ergonomic positioning for massage and other therapies. Warm crystals mold and shape around the body helping to release muscle tension, detoxify and promote a deeper state of relaxation. With the addition of the new Quartz Crystal bed, Crystal will also add two new specialty massages to its indulgent menu of services: a hot mineral body massage and a poultice-powered muscle release massage, both utilizing the bed’s technology.
To enhance cabin comfort Crystal’s ETRO selection will include bathrobes, slippers, shower cap, shoe mittens and sewing kits as well as shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, bath salts , unisex fragrances and more. The launch date for the ETRO insertion is Aug. 16 during a Crystal Symphony Baltic cruise and Aug. 20, 2015 on the Serenity’s Mediterranean and Western Europe voyage.
The spas on Crystal Cruises ships are some of the best at sea, designed with a feng shui touch and staffed with some of the best therapists Steiner employs (Steiner holds the monopoly of shipboard spas and hires facialist, massage therapists, manicurists etc. to work the ships on various contracts).
