The Spa onboard the Norwegian Gem: Yin and Yang Spa & Salon Facilities
Relax and rejuvenate at the Yin and Yang Spa on the Norwegian Gem. Indulge yourself with an assortment of spa services: massages, acupuncture, body wraps, slimming treatments, facial treatments, tooth whitening, steam rooms, and water therapies. Hawaii based Mandara manages the spa. Steiner owns Mandara and also manages the majority of the spas on most of the cruise lines.
You should check onboard for the current list of services being offered on your cruise. Of particular interest in the Norwegian Gem's spa facilities are the couples massage room, men's & women's steam rooms, a whirlpool, thalassotherapy pool, and a dry float bed (used in body wraps).
The Salon onboard the Norwegian Gem offers hairstyling, cutting, coloring, eye brow shaping, waxing, manicures, pedicures, and facial treatments. The Yin and Yang Spa is located on Deck 12.
Norwegian Gem Spa Tips:
Make certain to book any Salon and Spa menu of services early -- they tend to fill up quickly. Also, be on the lookout for discounts offered for making appointments on the first or second day of the cruise. If you can't make it the day of the discount or if they are full, ask for an appointment at the discount rate for the following day. It doesn't hurt to ask and more often than not, they will honor the discounted price.
There will be drawings throughout the cruise for free services. Most of the time, you have to be there at the appointed time to win. It is worth showing up. This is especially true on sunny days in port where drawings may be offered before leaving port. Some people will still be off the ship and enjoying the sights. That will increase your odds of winning.
If you are waiting on a spa treatment or even if you have just finished, there still is a charge for the relaxation areas in the spa.
