Viking Line will be providing well-being for both body and soul before the summer kicks in. The Beauty & Wellness weeks May 3–June 1, 2014 treat passengers aboard Viking Grace and Amorella to relaxing spa experiences, delicious raw food and superfood, new training methods and Graceloppet, a unique running event.
The theme weeks on Viking Grace and Amorella offer relaxation and pampering, both physical and mental. Restaurants on board will be serving healthy, tasty raw food and superfood, such as freshly squeezed juices and various teas, ranging from bubble tea to matcha and tea made from the chaga mushroom.
Bubble tea originated in Taiwan, and its velvety consistency raises the tea experience to a higher level. There is a great interest in healthy foods, and we want to give our passengers the chance to give them a try, says restaurant manager Sari Launonen from Viking Line.
Spa treatments and tax-free campaigns
The total wellness experience includes various spa treatments offered at special prices during the Beauty & Wellness weeks. After a relaxing treatment, both mind and body are in the perfect state to enjoy presentations focusing on health issues.
In May, the tax-free shops are jam-packed with the fashions and fragrances of summer. Victoria’s Secret Beauty products and other fragrances, the legendary Converse sneakers and Björn Borg Sportswear items are just some of the special offers available on board.
Enjoy a run on deck
During the theme weeks, passengers can try out new training methods such as zumba picnic, with e.g. Maija Grace as coach. This method has been inspired by South American dance rhythms. As a counterweight to everyday stress, Viking Grace offers meditative training in the form of Senshin Do. Aboard Amorella the Fustra method provides relief for neck and back pain.
For those wanting to get into shape for the summer, counselling and body composition measurement are offered.
The Beauty & Wellness weeks also comprise the first Graceloppet, a running event taking place on the upper deck of Viking Grace on May 18. The approximately one-hour run is followed by an After Run event in Club Vogue where Raakel Lignell, the winner of the Finnish version of Dancing with the Stars, will perform together with her dance partner Jani Rasimus.
If any body parts are feeling tender after the event, qualified massage therapists in the spa aboard Viking Grace will be happy to provide some relief. The Graceloppet package also includes a dinner buffet in Buffet Aurora on the journey back.
