Canyon Ranch SpaClub®
It is not surprising
that the most luxurious ocean vessel ever built features a Canyon Ranch Spa. This highly acclaimed health resort company has
elevated the spa experience to an entirely new plane with life-changing programmes from stress-relief classes to workshops
on diet, healthy aging and disease prevention. 51 Canyon Ranch health and wellness experts work in Queen Mary 2's 20,000 square
foot facility which includes 24 treatment rooms, a thalassotherapy pool with deluge waterfall, a whirlpool, thermal suite
with both herbal and Finnish saunas, reflexology basins and an aromatic steam room.
Take a virtual ride
into outer space, view the stars and other visual spectacles or take a course on celestial navigation in Illuminations, Queen
Mary 2's full-scale planetarium. It also functions as a grand cinema, a 500-seat lecture hall and even a broadcasting studio.
Queen Mary 2's cultural enrichment programme includes seven classrooms and a 500-seat auditorium
where you can attend workshops, seminars and lectures presenting a fusion of perspectives from the world's premier cultural
hotspots: New York and London. Classes range from fashion to foreign languages, watercolor techniques to period furniture.
