Kicking off in October, goop practitioners and experts will lead exclusive programming, including workouts and mindfulness sessions with a goal of enriching guests’ collective well-being while aboard the new luxury brand’s most exquisite ships.
The two company’s partnership was announced in January 2020 and has continued to evolve. In April 2021, goop’s founder and CEO Gwyneth Paltrow was announced as Celebrity’s Well-being Advisor. The goop team has curated new wellness offerings for Celebrity’s ships including fitness kits for AquaClass guests, on-demand wellness classes on stateroom TVs, a custom smoothie and more.
“As our guests have returned to travel, they’ve expressed how sailing has been a source of healing for them after a very challenging year,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “Nowhere else can guests experience this powerful confluence of the serenity of the sea with physical and emotional wellness.”
“Physical, mental, and spiritual well-being are inextricably connected—and how fun to explore all, on the water, in the Caribbean,” said Kiki Koroshetz, goop’s Senior Wellness Director and contributor to Celebrity’s Women in Wellness group. “We look forward to sharing the wisdom of an incredible group of teachers with Celebrity Cruises’ guests.”
Eager travelers can engage with goop’s roster of experts as they learn of the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of today’s modern traveler. Curated by goop, the practitioners include:
