Industry’s First Charcoal Sauna at Sea


As part of the ongoing only-found-on-NCL’s Prima Class holiday experiences such as the world’s first three-level racetrack at sea and dry drop slides, the Brand will unveil the industry’s first charcoal sauna.


A charcoal sauna is a type of radiant heat system that reaches temperatures of between 30-50 degrees Celsius by using an outer layer of charcoal. It is derived from Japanese and Korean wellness practices. In addition to boosting circulation and metabolism, the sauna also helps remove toxins from the body and treats muscle tension, including relief from backache, headache, and arthritis thanks to the connective tissue and muscles release.

  • Ocean Spa Wave Massage.
  • Musclease Aroma Spa Ocean Wrap.
  • Cellutox Aroma Spa Ocean Wrap.
  • Zero Gravity Wellness Massage.


The spa will also feature a relaxation area featuring 22 hot stone loungers. Guests can also arrange to stay in the relaxation area featuring 22 hot stone loungers or one of the 28 exclusive spa balcony staterooms, providing travellers with access to the elevated Mandara Spa.
