Blue World Voyages to launch first-ever wellness-centric cruise
POSTED 31 Jan 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
Luxury group Blue World Voyages has announced that it will debut the world's first leisure and wellness-focused cruise later this year.

The new liner, which will be able to accommodate 350 passengers, will feature a wealth of facilities aimed at what Blue World Voyages founder and chairman Gene Meehan has called "conscious consumers", people who "eat well, stay active, and are in search of new experiences".

The cruise's manifold highlights will include yoga, spinning, and suspension training (TRX) studios; a strength training centre with a sports medicine clinic; batting cages; sports simulators; an onboard Hank Haney golf school; and two pools, plus a seawater lap-pool for open water training.

Additionally, spa enthusiasts will be able to treat themselves to therapy sessions in what will reportedly be the "largest on-water spa (per person) in the world".

Commenting on the cruise's programming, John B. Richards, co-founder and CEO at Blue World, said: "Beginning with the design of the vessel and onboard programs and extending to dining options and ports of call, everything we do makes it easy for people who are already energised and healthy to stay on their regimen while having the time of their lives."

The new ship is expected to embark on its maiden voyage this summer.
