Silversea Cruises has announced its pioneering wellness programme on brand new cruise ship Silver Dawn, which is set to launch in spring 2022.

Silversea Cruises continued to cement its place as an ultra-luxury cruise line today as it unveiled its pioneering new wellness programme Otium.

Diverged from already existing wellness programmes, Otium encourages a balance of indulgence, pleasure and pampering over sacrifice and delayed gratification.

Otium’s principles are built around the idea that wellness should be natural; something that is an enjoyable part of life that can be shared with others.

The wellness programme onboard the Silversea Cruises cruise ship will provide its guests with a customised, multi-dimensional wellness journey.

Silver Dawn’s spa will also be redesigned with Otium in mind.

The Chief Commercial Officer of Silversea Cruises, Barbara Muckermann described the new spa experience: “Silversea has long excelled at enabling guests to ‘travel deeper in luxury.’

“While the immersive aspect of our offering is easy to convey, the luxuriousness of our product can often seem intangible: guests really need to see it – to live it – to fully appreciate it."
