New programming that will further elevate the brand’s awarded spa and wellness platform include:
Kérastase Flagship Salons – Celebrity Cruises ships will feature the latest technology and treatments based on extensive research from 700 scientists, 4,000 beauty researchers, and 83,000 beauty experts worldwide. Innovative in-salon treatments such as the Fusio-Dose™ provides unique and transformative results.

Gharieni Advanced Therapy Beds – The Spa will feature advanced spa therapy treatment tables fleetwide. The selected beds include the popular MLX Quartz and the WellMassage 4D.
Also known as psammotherapy (MLX Quartz), warm sand quartz cocoons the body and replicates the benefits of a day spent at the beach. Quartz minerals impart wellness benefits and healing energy to the guest as well, helping to release muscle tension and promote a deeper state of relaxation.
WellMassage 4D is an award-winning method that combines high tech and high touch. This table uses eight specially programmed positions and manual signature techniques to deliver a deeper and more relaxing massage.
Both Millennium and Solstice Series ships will begin the transition to OneSpaWorld in May 2020. In April 2020, Celebrity Edge will be joined by its sister ship, Celebrity Apex, with an additional three ships to follow in 2021, 2022 and 2024, respectively.
