Carnival Targets Men and Teens for New Spa Program

Pampering will be taken to a new level when
Carnival Cruise Lines’ new Carnival Liberty is introduced in Europe
this summer. Responding to trends in the spa industry, Carnival has
added an array of barber services for men, tooth-whitening treatments
and a spa program aimed at teens aboard the 110,000-ton SuperLiner.

      The expansive 13,300-square-foot Spa Carnival health and fitness
center will also feature state-of-the-art exercise equipment, fitness
and aerobic classes, and a wide variety of sophisticated
European-style treatments.  A new youth spa program, called Generation
YSPA, will offer treatments created specifically for today’s teens.
“According to current spa industry data, an increasing number of men
are interested in receiving spa and salon treatments, and we have
responded with a comprehensive barber services menu,” said Bob
Dickinson, Carnival president and CEO.  “Likewise, our YSPA program
caters to teens, and our other new spa services make Carnival
Liberty’s health and fitness program one of the most comprehensive in
the Mediterranean cruise market this summer.”

      The new barber menu will include the “Express Shave,” which
decongests and polishes the skin, while providing a clean, close
shave; the “Deep Cleanse Men’s Grooming with Shave,” which expands on
the “Express Shave” with a soothing face and scalp massage, and a deep
pore cleansing mask; and the “Shave of All Shaves,” which combines the
“Express Shave” with a targeted anti-aging mini-facial and skin
treatment that includes a face, scalp, hand and arm massage, and
facial mask.

Other new spa services will include Gentle Touch Tooth Whitening, a
system that uses an FDA-approved non-toxic gel and laser therapy to
gently lift away stains from coffee, nicotine, red wine and other
strong food colorants.

Carnival Liberty’s spa also will offer a variety of popular
European-style treatments, such as Aroma Stone Therapy and La Therapie
Facial, as well as the Generation YSPA program, which features face,
body, hair and nail treatments created just for teens.


Located on Spa Deck 11, Carnival Liberty’s spa will house complete
locker room facilities, steam rooms and saunas with ocean views, and a
boutique offering spa products for sale.  A full-service beauty salon
will feature hair styling services, manicures and pedicures.
The gym will feature Life Fitness rowing and stair-climbing machines,
treadmills and exercise bikes, as well as free weights. An aerobics
studio will offer a range of instructor-led fitness classes, including
low- and high-impact aerobics, yoga, kickboxing and spinning.
Menus in Carnival Liberty’s Golden Olympian and Silver Olympian dining
rooms will feature Spa Carnival Fare, a selection of dishes that are
lower in fat, calories, sodium and cholesterol, as well as vegetarian
and low-carb dishes at every meal.  Emile’s Restaurant, the expansive
two-level casual poolside eatery, will offer an extensive salad and
fruit bar, and a 24-hour frozen yogurt station.
