A cruise is one of the most relaxing ways to travel, with plenty of scenery, sunshine, and fresh air. You can pick from the very best destinations and spend your time sunning yourself on the ship’s deck, and be looked after from the moment you leave until you arrive at your destination. But after a little time in the sea air you may wish to treat yourself to a day of pampering, to restore your skin, hair and nails to their natural glow.
Orlando is home to some of the very best spas in the world, including what are commonly referred to as ‘the big three’. They may be a little more expensive, but are worth every penny. Find out more about the spas and treatments they offer below:
