Health and Wellbeing on board Ambassador Cruises


With so many temptations on board a cruise it’s refreshing to see health and well-being becoming an essential aspect of a cruise holiday. Ambassador Cruise Line, known for its premium value and no-fly cruising, offers a unique experience where guests can focus on maintaining their health and wellness while enjoying the beauty of the sea.

Holidaymakers seeking a balance of relaxation and wellness would do well to consider Ambassador, given a key aspect is the focus on fitness and physical activity. Both ships Ambience and Ambition feature a fitness centre, an exterior jogging and walking track, swimming pool, splash pool and hot tubs. And to extend that feeling of rejuvenation, there’s the Green Sea Spa which includes a sauna, steam room, beauty salon offering hairdressing and pedicure and manicures. The extensive range of restoring spa treatments is incredibly well priced compared to many other cruise lines.

Guests can participate in a range of fitness classes led by professional instructors or create their workout routine using the modern equipment available. Whether you prefer cardio exercises, strength training, or yoga sessions, Ambassador  has something for everyone to stay active and healthy during their voyage of exploration. The range of ‘Mind, Body and Soul’ activities also include chair yoga, circuits pilates and healthy hips, catering to all fitness levels.

Silver Travel writer Sally Dowling had this to say on her recent review of Ambience: “For the more energetic there is a well-equipped gym on deck two alongside the beautiful Green Sea Spa: I know which one I preferred! The spa has been tastefully designed to evoke an atmosphere of calm and relaxation and there are some well-priced packages available. I enjoyed an hour ‘taster treatment’ comprising a selection of different massage treatments for £64. Top tip is to book a treatment as soon as you can after embarking as the slots soon fill up. Lido Deck has a swimming pool and splash pool surrounded by sun loungers and served by the Pool Bar. The Sun Deck is where you can take laps of the ship or join a yoga class in the Active Studio.”

The Green Sea Spa is noted for it’s tranquil atmosphere and skilled therapists who ensure that every guest leaves feeling rejuvenated and revitalized.

If dancing is your thing, then why not opt for ‘Chance to Dance’ in the Observatory, a quiet area of the ship during the day which offers ample room to put your best foot forward and try Ballroom, Sequence, Charlston and many other genres of dance. The Observatory comes alive in the evening. With its circular dance floor, it’s a post-show must for those who want to dance in to the early hours. Look out for the silent disco!

The next morning, why not join the effervescent onboard entertainment team, who will accompany guests should you choose to walk/jog the outdoor track. Located above the pool deck, it takes 6.5 laps to walk a mile. It’s a popular way to clock up the daily step count, or just simply chat and make new friends whilst at sea.

Dining plays a significant role in health and well-being, and Ambassador takes great care to provide passengers with nutritious and delicious meals. The onboard restaurants offer a diverse menu of fresh and healthy options, including salads, seafood, and vegetarian dishes. The cruise ship’s talented chefs use locally sourced ingredients to create flavourful and wholesome meals that cater to a variety of dietary preferences. Whether you are a health-conscious eater or a food enthusiast, Ambassador ensures that every meal is a delightful and nourishing experience.

As the winner of ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ at the 2023 Silver Travel Awards, we know Ambassador Cruise Line has really made its mark with their target audience of over 50’s, not least as health and well-being is an integral component of many people’s lives at that age. From fitness facilities to spa treatments to nutritious dining options, every aspect of the cruise is designed to promote guest’s physical and mental wellness. Whether you are looking to stay active, or relax and rejuvenate, Ambassador offers a comprehensive range of amenities and activities to keep you healthy whilst on holiday!
