Learn more about the relaxation experience on board MSC Cruises ships

The Spa offering on board MSC Cruises ships and the range of treatments for guests

MSC Cruises’ Aurea Spa is specially designed to offer guests an experience of total relaxation while on board. The vision behind creating the Spa area and its many treatments is to create an area where one can indulge in life’s pleasures with a range of treatments and in the multi-sensory thermal area. The expansive MSC Aurea Spa is leading the way among spas at sea, as each of the ships boast a haven and a peaceful break away from the rest of the world.

Relaxation and wellness are an important part of the guest experience during a holiday at sea with   MSC Cruises. Designed to revitalise body and soul, guests can enjoy a range of authentic massages and beauty treatments to improve with their wellbeing.

Among the popular treatments and spa offerings are traditional Balinese and Swedish massages, that offer numerous benefits. The Balinese massage, rooted in healing rituals from the province of Bali in Indonesia, aims to restore vitality by releasing muscle tension and stress, and improve the flow of circulation throughout the body. The Swedish massage is a traditional full body massage, promoting leisure and wellbeing to ease tired and aching muscles.

Other spa signature treatments across the MSC Cruises fleet include:

  • The Dry Flotation-zero gravity experience promotes complete physical and mental peace of mind while offering a special emotional ambiance generated by the synergy of water, heat and light.
  • The Sasak massage combines traditional techniques with heated herbal compresses over the body designed to leave guests feeling energised and balanced.
  • The Hydroderm Facial targets your skin concerns with the superior hydrodermabrasion exfoliation, taking your skin to its highest level of clean, clear and smooth.

MSC Cruises also offers anti-age treatments.  There are facial rejuvenation treatments from accredited medi-spa doctors, as well as facial treatments offering visible results.

What guests can expect when they enter the MSC Aurea Spa

The luxurious onboard MSC Aurea Spa boasts an exotic interior of natural stone, precious woods and rich mosaics, each equipped with separate massage treatment suites.  MSC Seascape, which will set sail for the first time in late 2022, will house a state-of-the art area boasting 21 treatment rooms, a hair and nail salon, barber shop, and an exclusive outdoor area with three cabanas available for half-day and full-day rental. Lavishly equipped with new and enhanced amenities, the spa is also designed to offer breath-taking views out to sea.

MSC Aurea Spas feature an exclusive thermal area, designed for guests who look for a range of therapies using temperature manipulation to encourage serenity. 

Spa services and treatments customised for each guest

MSC Cruises’ spa therapists are trained to personalise treatments for each guest. To reach ultimate state of zen, guests are asked what they would like to achieve from their massage and if there is any specific area they would like to focus on during their treatment.  Spa therapists adjust the treatment to the needs of each guest so that they may get the very most out of their experience.
