Seabourn plans full spa/wellness program on its expedition ships

Seabourn's expedition ships will have a spa and wellness space designed by Adam Tihany and a 'Mindful Living Program' program created by Dr. Andrew Weil.

As conceived by Tihany, who is fashioning the interior and exterior passenger areas throughout the ships, the Deck 7 facility is sleek, serene and inviting.

'Floating forest'

The 3,700-square-foot space integrates the concept of a contemporary ‘floating forest,’ with details including a textured, tree-inspired art mural, light wood and bronze material palette, and live wood features to usher spa-goers into the reception area.

Natural stone flooring plays off muted sage and orange accent colors found throughout the spa, while the branches of the ‘floating forest’ spread like delicate fingers into four tranquil treatment rooms, each arrayed with neutral, textured wall coverings, light wood and bronze accents.

Floor-to-ceiiing windows

Tihany’s design touches continue in the yoga and fitness areas, both with an open wall of windows. The spa’s sauna also has floor-to-ceiling windows, a new design for Seabourn unique to its expedition ships.

"Mindful Living Program'

Weil's 'Mindful Living Program,' available across the fleet, is led by a specially trained mindful living coach on each ship and comprises a holistic mind and body approach to wellbeing. Included are complimentary yoga and guided meditation sessions and seminars on topics ranging from integrative medicine to nutrition, pain management, creative aging and more.

Therapists will offer massages, facials, detox, cleansing and wraps, and a full-service salon will offer treatments for women and men.

The fitness center will be outfitted with cardio and strength equipment, and a fitness director will be on hand.

Seabourn Venture is scheduled to enter service in December on a new winter Norway program, with a sister ship to follow in 2022.
