Wellness Cruises: How to sail with Gywneth Paltrow

Join fitness experts that will work on your mind body and soul on a ‘goop trip’ curated by Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

When it comes to pampering and wellness we all know what the doctor prescribed – a vacation with a GP. No, not an actual doctor, but the Wellness Goddess and Queen of goop herself: Gwyneth Paltrow.

Not content with running her own lifestyle brand while juggling a stellar career in Hollywood, and making those candles with a very questionable scent, Gwyneth has now entered the world of travel, becoming a Well-being Advisor and curating exclusive wellness offerings for Celebrity Cruises.

That means while she may not actually be on board, the Iron Man star has had more than a hand developing design details for the wellness cruises that last year went around the Caribbean with a crew of experts including a clairvoyant and trampoline fitness guru.

The actress is now working with the cruise line to help create a series of exclusive holistic wellness programming and products to enhance guests’ time on board, including fitness kids for AquaClass participants, on-demand in-cabin wellness TV content and a signature goop smoothie at The Spa café.

Her team of experts will lead a variety of workouts and ‘restorative and expanding classes for the mind body and soul’ to enrich guests’ well-being while on board the luxury brand’s ships.

Sailing out of Miami or Fort Lauderdale, last year’s goop cruises featured author and energy healer Dana Childs, trampoline and dance guru Colette Dong, movement curator and trained dancer Tina Jackson, clairvoyant acupuncturist and spiritual teacher Deganit Nuur, and fitness expert and Bodylicious class founder Drea Wheeler.

The cruise line’s Women in Wellness programme also includes Elemis founder Noella Gabriel, holistic wellness expert and best-selling author Kimberly Snyder, Ruth Zukerman, co-founder of Soul Cycle and Flywheel Spots, Olympian Morgan Mitchell, yoga guru Katie Bruaer and goop’s very own Wellness Director Kiki Koroshetz.

‘As our guests have returned to travel, they’ve expressed how sailing has been a source of healing for them after a very challenging year,’ said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. ‘Nowhere else can guests experience this powerful confluence of the serenity of the sea with physical and emotional wellness.’

The wellness journey starts the moment you step on board with The Spa which offers F45 fitness classes and Peloton cycling with sea views, as well destination-inspired treatments. At the heart is a SEA Thermal Suite with eight distinct therapeutic experiences inspired by nature. Guests can book into the line’s AquaClass staterooms with a cashmere mattress, pillow menu, yoga mat, spa packages and an exclusive ‘clean cuisine’ restaurant, Blu, that has plant-cased options and inventive dishes crafted by a Michelin-starred chef.
