Norwegian Escape will offer Norwegian Cruise Line’s first Snow Room and the largest Thermal Suite at sea when she debuts this October.
Spanning two decks, the Mandara Spa experience will feature the largest Thermal Suite at sea, outfitted with Norwegian’s first Snow Room, which will range from –6.1 to 0 degrees Celsius in temperature and emit powdered snow throughout the day. The room has been designed to stimulate blood circulation and strengthen the immune system.
The spa will also offer 17 heated loungers, a hydrotherapy pool, whirlpools, a steam room, a dry sauna, a samarium, a salt room, a full-service salon and 24 treatment rooms. The spa will offer more than 50 signature treatments including massages, facials, acupuncture, cosmetic medical treatments performed by a licenced medi-spa doctor, and more.
In addition, Norwegian Escape’s fitness centre will feature the latest Technogym weight training and cardio equipment, while guests will be able to participate in group fitness classes or personal training sessions.
Adults will also be able to access two exclusive outdoor lounge spaces – Vibe Beach Club and Spice H2O – which will feature a new grotto area with waterfalls.
Norwegian Escape is currently under construction at Meyer Werft’s Papenburg yard in Germany and will be the first of Norwegian’s Breakaway Plus vessels. Designed as its largest ship to date, Norwegian Escape will accommodate 4,200 passengers and include all of the innovative features found on Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway. The ship will also offer various industry firsts, sports and water park facilities, private dining options, Nickelodeon-branded entertainment and more.
Guests can stay in the line’s signature luxury ship–within-a-ship complex – The Haven by Norwegian – as well as solo traveller studios, and various accommodations for families, multi-generational groups, spa enthusiasts and more.
Marine wildlife artist and ocean conservationist Guy Harvey has designed the ship’s hull artwork, which will illustrate two underwater scenes of marine wildlife and span 1,065 ft from the ship’s hull to the aft.
