Queen Elizabeth's spa is called Royal Spa, of course, because everything else on board is so much to be associated with the royal! The spa area is in the bow on the deck 9 so every time we took the lift from the cabin to the pool deck, we ended up outside the spa entrance.

I threw light glance at the entrance, but at the same time I did not throw in to book a treatment. Sometimes, so, the holiest holy to me requires time to approach. In addition, I know that the best treatment prices on a cruise will only come after a couple of days! Very true, so when the "Top to Toe" treatment was offered for 129 USD instead of 224 USD, which corresponded to a discount of almost 400, I turned to :-).

Top two Toe is a 75 minute long enjoyment that includes as the name also reveals - full head to foot treatment: full body massage, foot and ankle massage, skull massage, shorter facial treatment and eye augmentation.

After signing up in the saving session, I was able to relax in the nice relaxation area in comfortable armchairs with access to tea and nuts. First I filled in a health certificate that gave the therapist a fingernail of my health status and what I felt most in need of. In addition, you are basically writing that you take responsibility for possible side effects ... (which never happened to me, but still strange moods of all kinds are common abroad).

The first thing I told the therapist was that I had just washed the hair for the evening and therefore asked her to skip the scalp massage because I would not get fat of oil or creams again. I had a piece of paper that I did not feel very good at but still thankful for protecting her hair during treatment. Another reason, which I did not understand because she would not massage her head, is my poor hair quality ever since that miserable Keune treatment followed by the terrible dehydrogenation with hydrogen peroxide. Everything goes off or rages just watching it :-(.

Anyway, what impressed with the treatment was the therapist's technique. She obviously had good grip and long experience. However, I did not get so relaxed, but I'm rarely affected by Steiners people (Steiner is a third-party company that runs almost every cruise line) - the pace, the chat, the efficiency, the sales ... everything goes against the spa idea about relaxation. In addition, the therapist made a couple of big tabs that made me more stiff than soft ... when, for example, she began to massage my buttocks, I asked her not to stay. I even pulled up the trousers to mark where the boundary went. What did she do then? Stack your hands for the trousers and continued massaging the buttocks! I was told to say that again; I explained that I was not comfortable with the massage of that area and showed her hand where I wanted her to stay. It went well like that, but at least it became better.

When the full body massage was done, she completely pulled my son off my paper cap, explaining that her hands were not greasy and began to massage her head anyway, though I had asked her to stay! So, even though she was good at what she did, I have to give her minus for the lack of flexibility and responsiveness of the customer's wishes.

I was also a little skeptical about the last step of facial treatment; she was hugely free to use many different products (luxury and beauty from Elemis and Bliss) that she did not mess with, but the washing-up momentum was the same. The warm, damp towel she easily pulled over her face made only half the job. I did not like the idea that stocks of different products (with all that they contain) remained on the skin and could not really relax now.

IMG_0944_1With the service charge, the closing price was about 920. The treatment was 75 minutes so even if it was not cheap it was not expensive than it usually is land. Perhaps another therapist or treatment would have worked better, or with a guest who is less petious than me, because I really want to think that if you are not going to get away with an enjoyable spa treatment when you are on a dream trip at sea, when will you do it?

In addition to the spa, there is a well-equipped gym as well as the Royal Bath House bath and sauna department. Only those who bought a special entrance card have access (the availability is limited for each cruise, which is controlled by the price; on this 12 day cruise, daily access cost about 1580 kronor wild I remember).
