In this story I have shared some ways to relax on a cruise


Taking a cruise is the perfect way to relax and unwind, a chance to escape the hectic pace of everyday life and spoil yourself in luxurious surroundings. The very finest in cruise liners, the Queen Mary 2, is the flagship for the internationally famous Cunard line. With unparalleled service, sophistication, and exquisite facilities, this majestic transatlantic liner is truly a wonder of the seas. Here are the five best ways to relax during your cruise on the Queen Mary 2.

1. Canyon Ranch SpaClub

For the very best in indulgence and luxurious relaxation, you simply can’t go past the Canyon Ranch SpaClub. With a focus on optimizing your health and wellness, you will be offered a range of signature services such as massages, treatments, and facials. These include invigorating Ayurvedic and Thai treatments, as well as the classic Rasul Ceremony and Canyon Stone Massage.

According to my past experience, I didn't find the water of this place quite good. But thankfully there are a lot of branded water filters available there so you can enjoy pure water. So I advise you to drink water from these water filters only.

2. A Trip to Another World

A perfect way to unwind upon the voyage is to explore the stars and beyond with the only at-sea Planetarium in the world. Travel to outer space, visit the moon, and enjoy the wonders of the universe with the unique virtual tours created especially for this magnificent attraction.

3. Gallery Stroll

The Queen Mary 2 boasts a stunning art gallery with a range of contemporary and classic pieces in both original and lithograph form. Taking a quiet stroll around the gallery will let you contemplate works by Picasso, Erte, and Dali as well as contemporary artists such as Howard Behrens and Alexandra Nechita. Carefully curated, the gallery is a wonderful place to relax and let your senses explore the visual feast on display.

4. Poolside Relaxation

Don’t let the weather stop you from enjoying the pleasure of unwinding by the pool. The Pavilion Pool located on Deck 12 is protected by a retractable dome, ensuring the conditions are always just right for a swim or a soak in the sparkling waters.

5. Lost in a Book

The perfect escapism can often be found within the pages of a good book, and the Queen Mary 2 doesn’t disappoint. The opulent library is elegantly furnished, with decadently thick carpets, lit bookcases, and plush seating scattered throughout.

Retreating into the library provides a quiet and peaceful sanctuary, and with over 8000 volumes, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Enjoy the sumptuous comfort of relaxing with a book, and taking in the sweeping views over the bow of the ship.

Books are my personal favorite, they provide a fresh perspective. I especially enjoy reading books on the Queen Mary 2, because the view from the library is just awesome. Also the library is filled with books on various topics to choose from.

If your idea of relaxation is something a little more involved, why not dance the night away in the glamorous Queen's Room under crystal chandeliers, indulge in some retail therapy at the Mayfair Shops, or try your luck at the Monte-Carlo inspired Empire Casino. For the theater lovers, why not catch a production in the classically-inspired Royal Court Theater, and enjoy some of the finest at-sea entertainment on offer.

With these relaxing pursuits and so many more, the Queen Mary 2 offers a unique way to unwind for each of its guests. Enjoy your cruise in the utmost comfort, and let the luxuriousness of this elegant liner soothe the senses in every way.
