Get a sneak peek of new spa and fitness amenities on board Carnival Splendor, including the first Cloud 9 Spa and accommodation in Australia.

The ship is set to be Carnival’s newest and largest ship,  homeported year-round in Australia in December 2019.  Australians after some R&R will be “spoilt for choice”, says the line.

“Holidays are the perfect time to sit back, relax and pamper yourself, so we’re very happy to be offering a broad range of wellbeing options for Aussie cruisers,” says Jennifer Vandekreeke, Vice President Carnival Cruise Line Australia.

“If you’re after a rejuvenating holiday you can stay in our Cloud 9 Accommodation. And for those who just need some ‘me time’ after playing with the kids all day onboard (and who doesn’t?), treat yourself to an indulgent massage or facial, a relaxing hour in the thermal suite or an invigorating fitness class.”

The Cloud 9 Spa spans two decks and features more than a dozen treatment rooms, exclusive spa staterooms, a thermal suite and thalassotherapy pool as well as an expansive gym and fitness centre.
