Massage Center

Massage center

On Duke of York we have developed a concept of cruise which combines the regenerative wellness inspired by such breathtaking location as the Maldives with a rather unique concept of onboard wellbeing, represented by a small MASSAGE CENTER specialized in Ayurveda treatments. A masseur is always on board. This ancient therapy, dating back over 6,000 years, will purify you from the toxins which are obstructing your energy channels, while natural oil- and herb-based massages will relax both your mind and your body.

Special Ayurveda week

Throughout the year we offer thematic Cruises dedicated to wellness where a  specialist in Ayurveda, will guide you through the art of simple relaxation with yoga, meditation and individual treatments. The Massage Center  is located on the second deck, it is equipped with every comfort to ensure our guests a total relax.
