Among the signature massages and treatments offered here (all ending with sound therapy) are Salt Stone Therapy, Color Therapy, Herbal Poultice Massage, Elemis 1000 Flower Detox Wrap, Elemis Biotec facials (8 skin therapies for anti-aging, brightening, pigmentation and general skincare). The spa also features the first at sea "Kerastase Institute" (hair treatment lab). Treatment rooms are equipped with latest-technology tables, including "WellMassage 4D" tables (by the German manufacturer Gharieni) and "MLW Amphibia" (Spa Wave system with water-filled cushions adapting to body's anatomy).
Spa Cafe and Juice Bar (a la carte bar for healthy bites, smoothies and fresh-squeezed juice during the day.)
The Solarium is an adults-only sundeck with 1 swimming pool and 2 Jacuzzis (whirlpool hot tubs) and a glass-roof cover.
The midship-located Pool Deck (aka Resort Deck) is a resort-style sundeck featuring 2-story high glass walls, 1 large swimming pool (lap pool), sunbathing area (with premium chaise lounges facing out to the sea), outdoor theater (large LED screen), 6 oversized cabanas for rent (starboard). The area is served with drinks by Pool Bar (outdoor poolside bar) and with fast food by Mast Grill. At night, the pool deck transforms into a "deck party" area with live music and outdoor movies.
There are a total of 6 spacious cabanas available for rent and offering comfortable seating, high ceilings, amazing sea views.
The starboard-located "Magic Carpet" is a glass-roofed, cantilevered platform designed as a panoramic outdoor venue. It has capacity 90 seats and features comfortable seating, a full-service bar, stage for live music performances. The Magic Carpet lounge bar is mobile (like a large elevator), moving up and down 13 decks. Magic Carpet also serves as a tender-embarkation area. In the evenings, the Magic Carpet stops on Deck 16 to offer the "Dinner on the Edge" dining experience. When it stops on Deck 14 (in front of the cabanas), it becomes a pool deck extension. When it stops on Deck 5, it serves as an alfresco dining appendix to the ship's main dining room restaurant. "Destination Getaway" is Magic Carpet's dedicated embarkation point when the platform is positioned at its lowest level.
Oceanview Cafe is Celebrity Cruises signature buffet restaurant with live cooking stations and a bakery.
II Secondo Bacio (part of Oceanview Cafe) is a la carte-priced grab-and-go counter for specialty coffees and fresh-squeezed juices.
