Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest ship, Norwegian Escape, is currently under construction. Today, the line announced some of the new features of the ship, including details about spa and new adults-only areas. According to the company, “Norwegian Escape will also feature Spice H2O and Vibe Beach Club, two adult-only outdoor favorites perfect for lounging away the day. Spice H2O, located at the back of the ship on deck 17, is an adult-only enclave offering day-time complimentary leisure. A bevy of sun loungers surround a huge video screen, while two hot tubs await for those looking to de-stress. An all-new soothing grotto area, complete with waterfalls and perfect for cooling off from the warm Caribbean sun, will enchant guests upon entering the venue, offering an exotic escape. At night, all guests can dance under the stars in this open-air dance club or enjoy a cocktail at the bar with accompanying lounge area, featuring comfortable seating while admiring the ocean views.”


NCL also introduced details about spa areas. Most interestingly, Norwegian Escape will feature the line’s first Snow Room. From the company’s press release: “The Snow Room, which ranges from a frosty 21 degrees to 32 degrees Fahrenheit, sends out a flurry of powdery snow throughout the day. Norwegian Escape’s Snow Room offers guests a multitude of health benefits, including stimulating blood circulation in the body and strengthening the immune system.”

While I don’t doubt the health benefits of a “snow room,” I have to admit that I have a hard time squaring the idea in my mind with one of my favorite things about cruising – getting the heck out of the cold!! But you know I’d have to check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚ What about you? Does the idea of being in a snow room in the middle of the Caribbean Sea entice you? I’m looking forward to seeing it. Norwegian Escape joins the fleet in October 2015, and will offer cruises from Miami. (Image courtesy of Norwegian Cruise Line)
