Seabourn’s new programme will complement the line’s existing spa services
Seabourn Cruise Line has partnered with The Onboard Spa by Steiner to create a fleet-wide ‘mindful living programme’, which offers a holistic spa and wellness experience that integrates physical, social, environmental and spiritual well-being.
To be introduced in January 2017, the new Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil programme has been designed in collaboration with Dr. Andrew Weil, a US-based specialist in integrative medicine. The programme will be led by a certified yoga and meditation practitioner who will be appointed as Seabourn’s first wellness guide.

“This new wellness programme will offer our guests an experience they simply won’t find anywhere else in the industry,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “By partnering with Dr. Weil we will offer mind and body programmes – so our guests can truly break away, relax and rejuvenate while they travel with us. This is a key component of our new Extraordinary Worlds of Seabourn programme, where we constantly bring together the world of luxury onboard and the world of adventure onshore, to create a travel experience like no other.”

Each day, guests can participate in complimentary Mindful Meditation sessions and restorative yoga classes. The latter will be varied so guests can choose classes that focus on various physical issues, such as the back, joint pain, headaches and body alignment, as well as mental focus and happiness. Classes will focus on mind, body and spirit over seven days and will change daily with a new theme.
Guests can also attend complimentary Mind and Body seminars to learn about philosophies and practices that enhance well-being and increase the awareness of connection between mind, body, environment and wellness.

Seminars are created by Dr. Weil and Steiner’s Wellness professionals, and will focus on topics such as spontaneous healing, anti-inflammatory foods, healthy aging and mindful meditation. Individualised one-on-one wellness sessions on select topics will also be available for a fee.
Dr. Weil will be onboard Seabourn Encore’s inaugural cruise to launch the programme in January. The programme will be rolled out across the Seabourn fleet in 2017, including Seabourn Ovation, when she launches in spring 2018. Dr. Weil will sail on a different Seabourn ship each year, delivering a 60-minute lecture for guests and smaller informal group discussions. A separate team of wellness experts will also make regular visits to spa facilities throughout the Seabourn fleet.
