It’s well-known that there are a variety of spa offerings for adults on most cruise ships, including massages, facials, manicures, and even a thermal suite with things like saunas and whirlpools. What many people don’t know, though, is that some cruise lines also include teens in some of the fun.
While only a couple of these cruise lines include a dedicated spa area for teens, all four offer an exclusive menu of treatments available for passengers 13 to 17 years old.
Disney Cruise Line — Chill Spa
Within Disney Cruise Line’s Senses Spa & Salon is an enclave just for guests ages 13 to 17: Chill Spa.
With its own nature-inspired color scheme and use of tropical flower and butterfly décor elements, Chill Spa feels distinct from Senses Spa. There, teens can unwind and relax with their very own menu of treatments and services.
Offerings include the Heavenly Massage, Hot Chocolate Wrap, Surfers Scrub, Ice Cream Manicures and Pedicures, Tantastic Body Bronzer, and the Acne Attack Facial. Mother/daughter and father/son massages are also available.
Note: A parent or guardian must accompany teens throughout the duration of their treatment. Chill Spa can be found on all four of Disney Cruise Line’s ships.
Carnival Cruise Line — ZSpa
Carnival Cruise Line offers a spa experience for teens ages 13 to 17 called ZSpa. Unlike on Disney, ZSpa isn’t actually a dedicated space; it’s just a variety of offerings created specifically for younger cruisers.
Treatments within the ZSpa menu include the Superfood Insta-Glow Facial, Clear Skin Multi-Mask Facial, manicures and pedicures, and hair services. And like Disney, mother/daughter and father/son massages are also available.
Specialized fitness classes are available to teens, as well.
Note: A parent or guardian must accompany teens throughout their spa treatments. ZSpa offerings can be found on all of Carnival’s ships.

Royal Caribbean — YSpa
Royal Caribbean International’s list of spa treatments for teens ages 13 to 17 is called YSpa, and it appears that either Royal or Carnival was influenced by the other when they named their teen spa program!
On most ships, YSpa is also similar in concept to Carnival in that there isn’t actually physically separate location for teens in the spa. On the Oasis-class vessels, however, YSpa is more like Disney — it does have its own area.
YSpa offers a variety of treatments including manicures and pedicures, facials, a deep conditioning hair treatment, and massages. Mother/daughter and father/son massages are also available.
“Fitness Frenzy” classes are also offered for teens 16 and older, usually at the ship’s aerobics studio.
Note: Teens under 16 years old must have a parent or guardian accompany them throughout their spa treatment.
And finally, Celebrity Cruises also has a special menu of services available for teens ages 13 to 17. Options include deep cleansing facials, manicures and pedicures, hair treatments, and Megawhite Express laser teeth whitening. And just like the other lines, Celebrity offers mother/daughter and father/son massages.
In the ship’s fitness center, teens can take lessons on how to improve their gait or posture, or get a custom workout routine created by one of the ship’s trainers.
Note: A parent or guardian must accompany teens during their spa treatments and during visits to the fitness center.
