Medi-spa treatments are about to become a major push for cruise lines around Australia, with Royal Caribbean’s new boss signalling she is looking at products like Botox injections.

The move comes as the Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia (CPCA) reveals that Australians are ranked as one of the world’s biggest spenders on Botox, consuming more than $350 million worth of the cosmetic injectable annually.

“We look at what are the brands that are hot, it could be Botox and other medi-spa experiences or a new type of tour off the ship,” said Susan Bonner, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s managing director and vice-president Australia and New Zealand, who was interviewed in The Australian newspaper about possible changes to the line’s product.

Medi-spa products are already big business for cruise lines. Steiner Leisure and Canyon Ranch spa places licensed physicians with a medical degree from a recognised college or university on ships, to offer popular cosmetic medical procedures such as Botox and fillers to guests.

The companies list almost every big brand on their website: Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line Carnival Cruise Lines, Carnival Australia, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, Cunard Line, Crystal Cruises, P&O Cruises.

Not all lines offer the treatments on Australian routes.

On Norwegian Cruise Line, the majority their 16-strong fleet offer medi-spa services such as fillers and Botox and more. Booking a consultation with a certified physician is free for: Restylane® Dermal Filler Treatments as well as DYSPORT® and BOTOX® Cosmetic Wrinkle Treatments.

They also offer Thermage CPT®* which uses radiofrequency energy to deliver a ‘non-surgical facelift’ but can also be used on the body.

For celebrity cruises, their Botox and Juvederm XC fillers are available only on selected vessels and must be booked onboard. Services are also not available when the vessel is in port.

The prices of these cosmetic treatments vary, especially for Botox and filler procedures as it is dependent on how many volumes is used in the treatment.

Other options available at the spas on different cruises include:
