Adding to its collection of destination spas, living communities, and multiple hotel SpaClub locations, Canyon Ranch (Tucson, AZ) recently launched Canyon Ranch SpaClub at Sea, a new division of the famed health and wellness company. Although the company has operated a SpaClub aboard Cunard’s flagship luxury ocean liner Queen Mary 2 since 2004, the company is now expanding its offerings to include new treatments and services. Canyon Ranch SpaClub will debut fleet-wide aboard Oceania Cruises’s Regatta, Insignia, and Nautica in August. The company is also developing a SpaClub aboard Marina, the newest member of Oceania’s fleet, which is set to debut in late 2010. It will feature a wellness and fitness facility complete with 16 treatment rooms, more than 50 pieces of state-of-the-art cardio and strength-training equipment, juice bar, thalassotherapy pool, two whirlpools, a Thermal Suite, and a full-service salon.
Passengers will also get an opportunity to experience Canyon Ranch spa cuisine thanks to corporate chef Scott Uehlein who is working with Cunard’s culinary staff to design nutritious spa menu offerings aboard Queen Mary 2. Oceania will also offer Canyon Ranch-inspired menu selections aboard Regatta, Insignia, and Nautica in April and May, 2010, and aboard Marina later that year.
With recruiting and training for the Oceania fleet already underway, it is expected that the division will employ more than 100 massage therapists, estheticians, hairstylists, and fitness and wellness instructors. Says Sandra Foyil, Canyon Ranch vice president of human resources, “This expansion enables Canyon Ranch to employ a diverse international team of professionals who offer one-of-a-kind experiences for our guests.”
