Along with its longtime partner, Canyon Ranch, Cunard is introducing the Mareel Wellness & Beauty spa experience.
Luxury cruise line Cunard announced that Mareel Wellness & Beauty: a new spa concept developed in partnership with Canyon Ranch, will be rolled out across its fleet. Mareel launched first on the newly-refurbished Queen Elizabeth this December 2018. In November 2020 both Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 will also undegoa spa transformation.
Mareel focuses on the healing energy of the sea. The new brand will offer a holistic approach with an extended spa treatment menu of mineral-rich seawater and marine-based experiences as well as a redesign of the entire spa facility.
Decorated in ocean hues of blue, green and pale coral, new offerings on Queen Elizabeth include:
- Couples suite for seaweed bathing rituals
- Meditation room with acoustic resonance loungers
- Redesigned multifunctional fitness center and studio space
- Sound therapy facilities in every treatment room
An entire range of ocean-inspired massage, body and alternative treatments will also be available and complement the aqua therapy center.
Treatment highlights include:
- Taste the Ocean Full Body Experience
- Organic Seaweed Leaf Wrap
- Luminescence Massage
- Age-Defying Restorative Facial
In addition, a new range of luxury products will be introduced, all with sustainably harvested organic ingredients including Red Flower, Shankara and Environ.

Mareel will also feature enhanced wellness experiences, including stretch and daily meditation videos shown on stateroom TVs, wellness seminars, and outdoor dance and yoga classes.
The new Mareel Wellness & Beauty experience is just one of the many enhancements on Queen Elizabeth during a two-week dry dock in Brest, France this past November. In addition to the new spa, many public spaces, bars and lounges have been updated and all Grill Suites and Britannia Staterooms have new carpets and soft furnishings. The Royal Court Theater had a complete technical overhaul; the Royal Arcade has been enhanced to offer an elevated shopping experience; and the outdoor decks have new furniture with a new layout on the Sun Deck.
