Silversea Cruises, pioneers in luxury cruising will unveil their wellness programme OtiumSM on board the brand new Silver Dawn from March 2022.
In a nod to the cruise line’s Italian heritage, Otium takes inspiration from the leisurely nature of the ancient Roman lifestyle. In Roman culture, Otium – the opposite of negotium, the non-existence of pleasure – was a time dedicated to leisure, in which people bathed, conversed, sung, theorised, drank, ate but most importantly, relaxed.
Completely diverging from the new age of wellness programmes, Otium encourages balanced indulgence. From your luxurious, comfortable base at sea the focus is on pampering and pleasure over sacrifice and delayed gratification. Built and designed on principals that wellness should be a natural, highly enjoyable focus of the day, especially while on vacation, Silversea have recognised that living well and being well and not mutually exclusive and that wellness need not be a solitary or silent experience, rather a social pursuit best enjoyed with others, yet in the very exclusive environment found on board these small, luxurious ships.
OtiumSM will transform the way guests relax and enjoy their personal space. An elevation of the already high levels of comfort, it will provide a customised, multi-dimensional wellness journey throughout the Silver Dawn, starting in some of the most spacious suites at sea, growing with a curated range of treatments in a reimagined spa and trickling out to permeate every moment of the cruise experience.
