When you book a cruise holiday, you want to discover new places, breathe in fresh ocean air, enjoy nature at its most majestic, eat delicious meals and, of course, relax.

Viking Ocean Cruises can help you do just that, with an award-winning spa onboard as well as a fitness centre, two pools and a salon.

Viking is the first - and only - cruise ship with a snow grotto onboard. Part of the spa's thermal suite designed in the Nordic tradition, the icy room is kept below freezing and boasts falling snow flurries from the ceiling.

The cruise ship also has a main pool with retractable dome for swimming in rain or shine, as well as a sleek, glass-walled infinity pool (the first at sea).

Those looking for some serious R&R can book one of over 30 spa treatments, like a Swedish deep tissue massage or Nordic hair ritual, and then unwind in the salt water filled thermal pool, steam room, therapeutic showers, hot tub or sauna. The spa also features plunge pools and heated ceramic loungers and for the brave, an ice-cold bucket dump.

There's also no better way to enjoy time away from daily stresses than by unwinding with a book - the library onboard has over 1,000 titles to choose from.

Don't miss these nine essential health and well-being tips that every cruise traveller should know.
