The Carnival Freedom’s spa is small but offers a large number of treatment options.
Spa Carnival on the Freedom is not very big as compared to the spas on some other mass-market ships. That said, there are several different types of treatment rooms, from an inside (windowless) treatment room to one with an ocean view and one for couples. All spa rooms are swathed in relaxing, muted colors, and some rooms have showers used in certain treatments. There is a small salon accessible from the main entrance, and a spa pool connected to the complimentary locker rooms.
Several types of facial and massage treatments are available, at varying lengths and prices. Among the facial treatment choices is a Hydralift facial for $107, an Oxydermi facial for $152, a Collagen facial for $131, and a Skin Specific facial for $107. Massage treatments include a 75 minute Herbal Poultice massage ($176), an Aroma Stone Therapy massage ($135 for 55 minutes and $176 for 75 minutes), an Aroma Stone Therapy massage, ($135 and $175), a Bamboo massage ($143 and $179), as well as the standard Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Reflexology massages, available in single or couples massages for $107 and $242 respectively.
Though relatively small, the salon is full service, offering mani-pedis, waxing, hair cuts and do-styling, coloring and highlights. Men as well as women are welcome, and there are pampering and grooming services for men that include facial cleansing, shaves, beard trims and men’s hair styling. Prices for men start at $15 for a trim and up to $116 for a facial cleanse.
The Spa pool is a complimentary edition to Spa Carnival and you are free to use it whenever you would like. It overlooks the fitness studio which can be a little strange for people on both sides of the glass.
