In May 2019, the industry will get its first wellness cruise line in Blue World Voyages. According to Gene Meehan, its founder and chairman, the plan is to turn an existing 900-passenger ship into a 350-passenger one, making the top level a spa and relaxation deck. Fitness facilities, including yoga and spinning studios, golf and soccer simulators, and batting cages will fill another level; a bike shop will outfit passengers for rides during port calls. Seven-night itineraries in the Mediterranean will start around $3,400 a person.
