In addition, Oceania's onboard Canyon Ranch SpaClub will offer discounts to passengers who pair their wellness tours with matching spa treatments.
The new tours debut on Riviera's April 9 and Marina's April 10 sailings. In addition, wellness-minded passengers can take advantage of Canyon Ranch healthy selections in the main dining rooms, vegan smoothies and breakfast options on the pool deck, and a full onboard spa and fitness center, complete with single-sex saunas and steam rooms, which are open to all passengers.
