Start packing your finest cruise outfits and gear, because these souped-up spring break cruises are about to redefine relaxing vacation.
Scenic is the only river cruise line to offer therapeutic salt lounges on its ships traveling French routes, and they’re far more luxurious than you’d think. Each salt lounge is essentially a therapeutic salt cave on board, complete with lounge chairs, low lights, privacy curtains, relaxing music, and a hand-made salt brick environment that’s humidity and temperature-controlled. Negatively charged salt ions are said to bear a high kinetic energy that improves healing, respiration, and immune system function. Here are more ways to be healthy while taking a cruise.
Yes, personal submarines are even available on some spring break cruises, like the Crystal Esprit voyage in the West Indies through April, and then the Mediterranean starting in May. A pilot and two guests sit upright on regular seating in a pressure-controlled cabin that dives down to depths of up to 300 meters (over 950 feet). Temperature and humidity are maintained at comfortable levels for the duration of each 30-minute dive. And just in case you tend toward motion sickness, here’s how to manage it.
Race cars on the ocean? You bet!
Not just your typical games
MSC Cruises has all the bells and whistles you’d hope for on spring break cruises like kids and teen clubs, water activities, and loads of dining options, but they also have something called slide-boarding on their Seaside ship, which combines interactive gaming, lights, music, and a 367-foot water slide to give vacation revelers the best vacation selfies of all time.
