Are you ready to embark on a journey of luxury, wellness, and unforgettable experiences? Look no further than the AquaClass on Celebrity Beyond. As a seasoned traveler, I’ve had my fair share of adventures, but my experience on the Celebrity Beyond’s 11 Night Italy, Turkey, and Greek Islands cruise in June 2023 took the concept of cruising to a whole new level. From the moment I stepped into my AquaClass stateroom to the final moments of relaxation at the SEA Thermal Suite, every aspect of this cruise was a testament to Celebrity’s commitment to pampering their guests. So, fasten your seatbelts (or rather, your life vests) as I unveil a treasure trove of insider tips that will make your AquaClass experience extraordinary.
Setting Sail: A Glimpse into AquaClass Heaven
Picture this: the glistening Mediterranean waters, the soothing hum of the ship, and you, nestled in the lap of luxury in your AquaClass stateroom. My journey began with anticipation, but the reality exceeded all expectations. AquaClass stateroom number 10257 became my haven for the duration of the cruise. As I stepped inside, I was greeted by a Welcome AquaClass document, a hint of the exceptional experiences awaiting me.
Yoga Mats and On-demand Wellness TV
What’s better than starting your day with the gentle embrace of a morning stretch? In your AquaClass stateroom, you’ll find not one, but two pristine yoga mats waiting for you to use while on board. I was the first to unfurl mine, still snug in its plastic, and it became a daily companion for my morning and evening rituals. But that’s not all – rumor has it there are On-demand Wellness classes on TV, although I must admit I was too immersed in my onboard adventures to explore this option.
In-Room Accessories – A Personalized Touch of Wellness
Before the cruise, I contacted Celebrity to choose my in-room accessories, and upon boarding, I was directed to make the request in person. The key? Once you meet your stateroom attendant, they’ll facilitate the delivery of your chosen accessories. We opted for the Recovery kit, complete with a massaging acupressure mat, deep tissue infinity roller, and aligned domes for balance and self-massage. An online crash course helped us master these tools for maximum relaxation and rejuvenation. For our second cruise, we received an email with the option to choose the accessories in advance.
The Oasis of the Room Shower
Prepare to be astonished by the shower in your AquaClass stateroom. With a rain shower, waterfall, and wall jets, it’s not just a place to cleanse; it’s an experience in itself. There’s ample space to stretch out, and even a convenient step for tasks like shaving. The high-quality soap, shampoo, and conditioner were a treat for my skin, enhancing the sense of luxury.
Hydration, Always at Hand
Staying hydrated is paramount during your cruise escapade, and the in-room bottled water is a thoughtful addition. Every morning, our attentive stateroom attendant ensured we had water bottles for our day’s adventures. It’s the little things that make AquaClass a true indulgence.
AquaClass Fitness and Wellness Unleashed
Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast or just looking to rekindle your inner wellness warrior, AquaClass has you covered. Complimentary fitness classes include Morning Stretch and Mindset Guided Meditation, open to all. As an AquaClass guest, you’re entitled to attend three specialized fitness classes for free, like the soul-soothing Pathway to Yoga. For those seeking an extra fitness boost, classes like RYDE indoor cycling and Fitness F45 await, albeit at an additional cost.
Spa Serenity and Unforgettable Encounters
The spa aboard Celebrity Beyond is a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation. The Spa Concierge welcomed us on the first day, guiding us through a myriad of services. Our cruise was marked by facials, acupuncture, and the sheer bliss of spa treatments at an additional cost. A raffle on day one granted us the chance to win Spa gift cards, an auspicious beginning to our spa journey. The Manager’s specials and preferential spa rates for AquaClass guests were the icing on the relaxation cake.
Discover the Tranquility of the SEA Thermal Suite
Prepare to lose track of time in the complementary SEA Thermal Suite, a sanctuary of serenity. My journey through the suite’s rooms – from the steam room to the Turkish bath, the rainfall pathway to the infrared sauna – was an odyssey of relaxation. The crystalarium and salt room proved particularly enchanting, while the headed beds and backset chairs provided moments of tranquil introspection. I spend time here every day and loved every minute. Carfeul to no fall asleep on the headed beds and start snoring, as someone did while I was there. It wasn’t me.
A Culinary Revelation at Blu Restaurant
Culinary delights await at Blu, a restaurant exclusive to AquaClass guests. The personalized invitation to Blu, accompanied by its healthier, low-carb fare, set the tone for delightful dining experiences. From artfully crafted meals to an array of juices and smoothies, Blu’s offerings are a testament to AquaClass’s commitment to wellness. It is open for breakfast and dinner.
Setting Sail Toward Your AquaClass Dream
As my AquaClass experience drew to a close, I found myself planning my next Celebrity cruise even before disembarking. The memories of the luxurious stateroom, the rejuvenating spa, and the culinary delights of Blu are etched into my travel-loving heart. So, whether you’re a seasoned cruiser or a first-timer, AquaClass on Celebrity Beyond promises an unparalleled blend of opulence and wellness. From yoga mats to spa indulgence, AquaClass opens a world where luxury and rejuvenation converge, creating an unforgettable voyage through the high seas. Your next AquaClass adventure awaits – are you ready to set sail?
