Feeling nostalgic for the pampered, slow-paced cruising of yesteryear?
Then Princess Cruises’ 3,600-passenger
in June, should be a breath of fresh air. A centerpiece will be the
spacious Lotus Spa, equipped with 18 treatment rooms, a full-service
salon, and an ocean-view relaxation lounge.
It also boasts The Enclave, a thermal
suite housing The Hammam, a Turkish-
inspired steam bath; The Caldarium, an
aromatherapy steam room with heated
floors, seats, and walls; and four types
of sensory showers.
The ports of call on the
’ Eastern Caribbean journey also
hold their own: Relax on the beach with a
barbecue lunch at Princess Cays, and
enjoy an array of water sports or soak up
the European culture in St. Maarten.
Afterward, perhaps there’s time to sam-
ple one more spa treatment before the
call to cocktail hour.

Already known for its immersive wine cruises
and renowned collection, Celebrity has upped
the ante again, making major changes to its
wine program. Lists divided by varietals or
regions have been replaced by flavor-profile
categories, while at-sea offerings now include
more options from Australia, Germany, New
Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, South America,
and Spain. Those who prefer to buy by the bottle
have more than 100 new wines from which to
choose; for a smaller sip, there are 20 new half-
bottle selections and 13 additional by-the-glass
options. And connoisseurs can select from a
Reserve List that was previously exclusive to the
fleet’s specialty restaurants.
