The 350-passenger cruise ship will have one entire deck designated for sports, and a second dedicated to spa and rejuvenation. With locally-sourced farm-to-table cuisine, active shore excursions, partnerships with specialist fitness and spa experts, this is set to be the ultimate cruise experience for fitness-focused adults.
With the global wellness industry now worth $4.2 trillion, and wellness tourism experiencing a 6.5% annual growth (more than double the growth rate for overall tourism), Blue World Voyages is leading the way for wellness travel.
The bow to stern Sports Deck offers golf and football simulators; a functional training centre; yoga, spinning and TRX studios; and a sports medicine clinic. There are three pools, including a sea water lap-pool for open water training. On the Spa Deck, guests can enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and the largest on-water spa (per person) in the world.
The Mediterranean destinations will be based on the best locations for activities such as cycling, hiking, golf and watersports; access to areas conducive to yoga and meditation, and opportunities for cultural and learning experiences.
Blue World Voyages is the opposite to its competitors who offer one-size-fits all cruising. Set to create a storm in 2019, Blue World Voyages promises to disrupt the wellness travel industry and the perception of cruising.
Gene Meehan, Chairman and Founder of Blue World Voyages gave the following statement about this new cruise line: “Blue World Voyages was created for health-conscious individuals, sports and fitness enthusiasts, and those in search of personal improvement. Our focus on Active Lifestyle Cruising is deeply embedded into every aspect of the company, from ship design and onboard programmes to dining options and itineraries..”
