Best Luxury Cruise Line Spa: “Viking's impeccable thermal spa [onboard its ocean ships] includes everything you'd desire: a thalassotherapy pool, a series of hot and cold treatments, ceramic lounge chairs and built-in tranquillity. Even better, whereas most cruise lines charge a premium for thermal spa time, Viking has bucked the trend, making access complimentary. The cruise line has smartly partnered with LivNordic, providing passengers with innovative, high-quality treatments. Viking sets the bar sky-high for cruise ship spas.”
In 2014 Raison d’Etre started integrating its own spa brand LivNordic, which included the very first sea faring snow grotto, exclusively on Viking Cruise Ships.
An important part of this journey was for us to implement the Raison d’Etre values that are inspired by a passion and love for life, wellness and service. These values have been the foundation of all of our award winning land-based spas since 1998 and we are now bringing them to the world’s oceans and rivers.
We took the best that our Nordic Wellness has to offer and put it
into our spas: From Scandinavian inspired design to innovative wellbeing
programs, including Nordic fitness, nutrition, beauty and products, accumulating
in our famous Nordic Bathing Rituals. In short, our mission is to infuse our
Nordic heart into the cruise ship spa industry.
Raison d’Etre offers a fresh approach to spa and wellness experiences at sea with a focus on developing people and services to allow guests to reach the most authentic level of their personal wellbeing through the creative concepts we create and relationships we inspire.
In short, our mission is to infuse heart into the cruise ship spa industry.
