Launching in the summer of 2016, Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ 750-passenger Seven Seas Explorer will be one of the most luxurious ships at sea. In keeping with the travel industry’s renewed focus on wellness and spa, the ship will house a state-of-the-art, eight-treatment room Canyon Ranch SpaClub, complete with a teak-deck terrace and infinity-edge plunge pool overlooking the ocean. Inside the spa itself, there will be a thermal suite for hot-cold experiences (saunas, plunge pools) as well as a shower room with therapeutic lighting.

But what we’re really excited about are the treatments: the massage, facials, and scrubs will incorporate Red Flower amenities and will be tailored and focused around varying destinations.

For example, the Red Flower North Atlantic Journey is an 80-minute exfoliating ritual that uses organic sea salts harvested from the Atlantic, enriched with sea algae, and perfumed with Icelandic moonflower.

The Red Flower Japan treatment is a 100-minute, six-part massage therapy that kicks off with a ginger grass and bamboo scrub, and continues with a rice bran wrap and acupressure facial. And if that doesn’t sound decadent enough—the whole experience ends with mineral soak and shiatsu-inspired massage.

All of these treatments will be premiering exclusively on the Seven Seas Explorer.
