The Dawn of Wellness at Sea
This summer, Crystal Cruises presents a stunning new spa concept, Aurōra Spa, aboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, promising guests an exceptional wellness experience at sea. Drawing inspiration from the Goddess of Dawn, Aurōra Spa embodies a serene sanctuary of peace and tranquility, perfect for overall well-being and body, mind, and soul rejuvenation. Beautifully framed by a sunrise-inspired design, expert therapists and state-of-the-art treatments make Aurōra a must-visit retreat for the discerning traveler.
A collaboration between Crystal Cruises and Tillberg Design of Sweden brings to life a serene wellness destination onboard. Embodying the magic of dawn, Aurōra mirrors the stunning visuals of the sun’s first light through its light-bright neutral colors, fiber optic starlight ceiling, and organic materials. The subtle infusion of natural salt crystal and silk-brushed slate stone accentuates the ambiance of this pristine oasis, designed for guests to rediscover their natural radiance.
Reimagining Luxury Spa Experiences
“Crystal’s spas have been completely reimagined,” revealed TDoS Partner & Cruise Design Director Iina Forsblom, emphasizing the fresh, welcoming design with refined finishes, exquisite materials, and a sophisticated color palette. The all-new Aurōra spa and wellness offerings onboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity are eagerly anticipated by Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations Bernie Leypold, who hailed Tillberg Design’s creation as an embodiment of energy, light, and balance.
Aurōra offers various treatments through strategic partnerships with the multi-award-winning British skincare brand ELEMIS and beauty experts Kérastase®. The treatments offered reflect the discerning traveler’s evolving preferences for current wellness trends. Facial treatments are specially curated for renewal, with estheticians developing personalized, high-performance facials using ELEMIS’s advanced BIOTEC technology.
Featured Treatments and Offerings
Some of Aurōra’s signature treatments include the LED and Cryo Facial Experience, designed to instantly plump and tone the skin, and the Biotec 2.0 Ultimate Facial, which reveals a more youthful appearance after just one treatment. Massage offerings like the Aurōra Stone Signature Massage incorporate hot stones for relaxed muscles and The Chariot of Light with LED light therapy for energized and refreshed skin.
Crystal Serenity and Symphony feature ample treatment rooms, steam rooms, saunas, and relaxation rooms. The salon will offer ultra-personalized services by onboard expert stylists, who will provide targeted recommendations for treatments and at-home care options after analyzing the condition of guests’ hair. Nail and makeup treatments are also available for both men and women, ensuring that everyone onboard can enjoy the holistic wellness approach of Aurōra.
