Showing the depth of the demand for wellness, fitness and “personal healing” is the future launch of Blue World Voyages, a new upscale, small-ship line designed totally with a wellness and active lifestyle focus. Gene Meehan, the line’s chairman and founder, is a health, fitness and spa entrepreneur as well as a competitive rower, climber and golfer. Blue World’s co-founder and CEO is John Richards, a former executive with Starbucks, Four Seasons Hotels, The Red Door by Elizabeth Arden, and early in his career, Royal Viking Line.
Blue World’s fitness- and health-focused global itineraries will focus on small ports and destinations that feature hiking, cycling, water sports and world-class golf options, plus one-of-a-kind cultural and educational opportunities. Look for an immersive, luxury experience with sports-themed activities, an extensive spa and health center and wellness excursions.
