  • All aboard the Glacier Express

    Switzerland’s Glacier Express is known as the world’s slowest express train” an eight-hour journey during which passengers experience panoramic views as they cross 291 bridges and go through 91 tunnels between St Moritz and Zermatt.

    The popularity of this train journey means that it has now taken a luxurious turn: due to high demand the Glacier Express now offers an ‘Excellence Class’ aboard its two new twenty-seater carriages.

    Lavish in design, the ‘Excellence Class’ carriages will offer the highest level of comfort to its passengers – each passenger is guaranteed a window seat from which they can enjoy unobstructed views of the remarkable landscape, plus they will have access to the exclusive ‘Glacier Bar’ and have their every need catered for by the on-board, personal concierge service.

    As for dining, passengers will be offered a regional five-course meal with accompanying wines throughout the journey, and Champagne, aperitifs, amuses-bouche, coffee, tea and snacks will also be available throughout the day.

    Excellence Class seats can be reserved from 9th December 2018 onwards, with journeys starting from 2nd March 2019.

    Beauty Queen

    Mareel Wellness & Beauty is set to launch aboard Cunard’s newly-refurbished luxury cruise liner, Queen Elizabeth. The new spa concept has been developed in partnership between Cunard and the wellness visionaries at Canyon Ranch.

    The new holistic spa treatments will debut aboard the Queen Elizabeth, then extend to Cunard’s other luxury vessels, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary, across the next twelve months.

    The entire spa facility has undergone a lavish revamp to work with the new treatment menu, incorporating ocean hues of blue, green and coral to create an oasis for guests. The treatment menu aboard the Queen Elizabeth will include mineral-rich seawater and marine-based experiences, and guests can enjoy a meditation room, sound therapy facilities and a couple’s suite for seaweed bathing rituals.

    The products used in the spa treatments are sourced and created through socially-responsible techniques with organic and sustainably-harvested ingredients.
