May 28 - 2012 : Regent Seven Seas Cruises feature Wellness Tips from all over the World
From antioxidant-rich Mediterranean cuisine to ancient healing rituals of India, the experts at Canyon Ranch have teamed with Regent Seven Seas Cruises to develop wellness tips culled from ports around the world to help travelers maintain and enhance their health and well-being while cruising.
A pioneer in the evolution of wellness lifestyle, Canyon Ranch operates a state-of-the-art SpaClub facility onboard Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ three award-winning, all-suite vessels - Seven Seas Navigator, Seven Seas Mariner, and Seven Seas Voyager - offering a rich sampling of unique treatments and indulgent services.
But the wellness concerns and offerings are not limited to the cruis ships themselves, but also the ports visited.
“Regent Seven Seas Cruises visits more than 300 ports every year and with Canyon Ranch, we offer our guests a wealth of health, wellness and fitness opportunities onboard and ashore,” stated Mark Conroy, the line’s president. “Travelers who wish to maintain a healthy regiment of diet and exercise while vacationing will find Regent Seven Seas Cruises provides ample opportunities to do so.”
Regent Seven Seas Cruises also offer an abundance of healthy dinning options.
Whether cruising Europe in the summer aboard the line’s 700-guest, all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Mariner or the 490-guest, all-suite Seven Seas Navigator, which sails in Alaskan waters, menus will reflect fresh, local and, wherever possible, sustainable ingredients, including Canyon Ranch Spa cuisine.
Designed to delight the palette and nourish the body, the Canyon Ranch menu selections focus on healthy carb-rich vegetables, fruits, and moderate portions of whole grains, using fats that are beneficial to health – such as extra virgin olive oil, with a minimum of salt and no artificial sweeteners. Selections include steamed Shanghai dumplings, Latin spice crusted Alaskan halibut fillet and buttermilk panna cotta delight.
Benefits arising from the ports of call each cruise visits include locally harvested ingredients – even seaweed from the remote northwest coast of Ireland. Said Laura Hittleman, corporate director of beauty services for Canyon Ranch. “The seaweed promotes detoxification and increases skin toning.” Another local treat, this time in India, is the wealth of flavorful foods often including turmeric, which is useful in calming inflammation,
Celebrating 20 years of delivering the most coveted luxury cruise experiences to its guests, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is the world’s most inclusive cruise line featuring gourmet dining, without any surcharges; fine wines and premium spirits; a selection of shore excursions in all ports; onboard gratuities; air transportation from more than 25 cities; and a luxury hotel stay prior to each voyage.
