Once the vessel debuts in October 2015 guests will be able to experience several new spaces where they can unwind and relax all cruise long. One of the highlights is the ships Mandara Spa which will be the most innovative yet. Lets have a look at the new spaces that NCL has announced.
The Mandara Spa will be a prime public space where passengers will be able to take advantage of the most innovative Spa in the fleet. The Spa will span two decks and will include 17 heated lounge chairs along with unobstructed ocean views. A whirl pool, hydro-therapy pool, steam room, dry sauna, sanarium and saltroom are also key areas of the Mandara Spa.

In addition to the new Spa highlights guests will have the chance to enjoy the usual offerings of the Salon and Fitness spaces that will also have several special programs to get folks in shape.
The Snow Room will be part of the Mandara Spa and will be a unique place at sea to get away from those hot sunny open decks and heated lounge chairs. The snow room ranges from a frosty
