Luxury Cruises - A Spa Vacation for Prime Time Women

You and your girlfriends deserve the best in a luxury cruise. After working hard in a career, minding the home, raising the kids, building a family, you need to do more than have a night on the town. Why not take a spa vacation aboard a luxury cruise line and take a week on the sea?

With a little research and ingenuity, you can select a cruise with exciting shore destinations and be pampered while you sail. Then, wine and dine aboard a cruise ship that is designed to accommodate your every whim. Now, that is luxury!

So what should you look for in a top-rated spa at sea? Here are several things to consider:

Look for superior service. When you regularly visit a spa, you have come to expect attentive and professional service from experienced staff. The staff of a quality spa use first-class products and hygienic practices that are therapeutic and pleasing to the physical touch. A cruise ship spa should rival the top land or destination spas. If the ship has the credentials as an award winner, all the better.

For example, Yin Yang facial treatments with essential oils can wipe away stress and leave you feeling fresh and serene. Others offer Aroma Stone therapy based upon heated basalt stones from harvested volcanic rock. And don't forget a deep tissue muscle massage to work its magic on your muscles and joints.

How about a scenic view while you are unwinding? What better place to relax in a spa than aboard a cruise vessel with ocean views from a private sun deck or relaxation area. You will not find those vistas in a desert spa setting in Arizona.

If you want to work in exercise, review complementary workout facilities. In addition to deep relaxation, you can accelerate your overall health and wellness by participating in a lap pool, sauna, steam room, fully equipped workout center, aerobics, yoga and Pilates fitness classes. You may also explore private weight training, Tai Chi and Pilates training with an experienced personal trainer. Some cruises offer health and fitness seminars to enhance your overall understanding of personal well being.

With your girlfriends, a cruise spa vacation can help revitalize you body, renew your mind and soothe your spirit. A luxury cruise may be what your "inner doctor" orders for your best health, personal abundance and wellness.
