(8:30 a.m. EDT) -- Oceania Cruises will introduce a new spa this winter to replace the fleet's existing onboard Canyon Ranch spa. The addition of the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center is part of the line's OceaniaNEXT initiative.
Aquamar Spa was created entirely by Oceania Cruises (rather than an outside spa company), inspired by guest feedback and the many benefits of travel. The program has multiple wellness pillars, focusing on spa treatments, fitness, enrichment and cuisine.

The spa's wellness services will include traditional and medi-spa treatments; its fitness center will offer complimentary exercise classes (such as yoga and Pilates), as well as personal training (for a fee). Healthy "Aquamar Vitality Cuisine" menu options will be added to main dining room menus. Aquamar's enrichment programming will be available onboard and ashore, with lifestyle seminars and Wellness Discovery Tours, shore excursions that are focused on different health topics, including reflexology, meditation and apitherapy (replacing Oceania's existing Canyon Ranch wellness tours).
"Our guests love balance -- they're active, they're leading rich and fulfilled lives. For them, wellness is not a pursuit, it's a lifestyle," said Bob Binder, president and chief executive officer for Oceania Cruises.

The Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center will be rolled out to three ships in 2019: Riviera (December 5), Sirena (December 7) and Nautica (also December 7). The spa launches in 2020 on Regatta (January 6), Insignia (January 8) and Marina (January 22).
Reservations for Aquamar spa treatments will open on a rolling basis, beginning in early November for Riviera, Sirena and Nautica. Upper-tier Oceania Club members, Gold and above, will receive Aquamar spa treatment credits as part of their membership perks.

Royal Caribbean Lays Out New Guidelines for Quantum of the Seas Cruise Ship Return in Singapore

(12:15 p.m. EDT) -- As Royal Caribbean gears up for a restart in Asia in December, the line has released several infographics outlining changes passengers will see on its ship in that region.

Quantum of the Seas will start sailing from Singapore on December 1, at half capacity with only passengers who live in the country and on "Ocean Getaways", or cruises to nowhere.

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Trademarks "Tracelet" Wearable Wristband

(12:25 p.m. EDT) -- Royal Caribbean International has filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new device to be called "Tracelet."

The application, which describes the service mark registration for Tracelet as "Rubber or silicone wristbands in the nature of a bracelet," was filed on October 15, 2020 under the subcategory of "cruise ship services."

Given the name, it is not unreasonable to expect Royal Caribbean's new Tracelet to function as a wearable RFID contact tracing device that could be used to mitigate any potential spread of COVID-19 that might occur onboard.
