Bastufantast or not, virtually any cruise ship (whether on the Baltic Sea or across other seas in the world) has a sauna, a bath and maybe even a spa. When I had a Christmas break recently I tried to try these opportunities on the ships I crossed.

The spa department at Birka was formerly Aqua Spa but has now renamed the more suitable Panorama Spa. In part, the somewhat quieter Panorama Bar wall is in the wall where they serve health drinks, and it is really panoramic from both the spa and the sauna.

This nice sauna is in the ladies' dressing room. There is also a sauna in the locker room for the sun & pool area. Panorama Spa also has a steam room. To get access you pay a fee; The Panorama Spa costs the 195 kronor Sunday to Wednesday, 295 kronor Thursday to Saturday. Then, in addition to loans of bathrobe, towel and slippers, there is also a necessary with Face products. Sun and pool costs the 120 crown for one hour.

On weekends, it may be a little drunk, often you see a bunch of guys with beer in the outdoor jacuzzi, for example. If you want peace and quiet, it's a good idea to cross the beginning of the week. But you should not be shy either; I have agreed that the caring staff ran away as "occupied" the outdoor pool so that everyone will enjoy 🙂.

Last I tested a pedicure, a little untouched, perhaps when you usually take a massage or facial. In fact, it was just the facial treatment I had booked because I was curious to test one with their "new" brand name Dermalogica and their concept of facemapping. But after all, many facial treatments lately I changed my mind at the last moment, which was no problem - oh what I appreciate flexible and accommodating staff !!!

Moreover, my choice proved successful; My therapist Erica (well known, we have met many times before) was a star even on foot care, and I was really impressed with how serious the pedicure she performed. Foot care is really something different (like everything else in the spa); Just at the spa, it's often too much lull-lull and I can not think of too much results. Often you get a scrub, a little foot bath, massage and that's it! At Birka, it was a full program with all the most professional tools and moments; grinding, grinding and filing.

Afterwards I disconnected and admired my feet that underwent a total transformation! Just getting your feet in the summer is a myth; Just in winter when they are locked up in several layers of socks, socks, slippers and tight boots around the clock, should they have a little extra care?

Must also suggest another plus at Panorama Spa / Birka; free spa when booked treatment! The person who has a treatment receives one hour's access to the splash at no extra charge, something that is not obvious everywhere. It makes it extra affordable and more motivating to book a treatment so do not miss it!
