Even at sea, it can be hard for vacationers to completely shut off their electronic devices and relax completely. That’s why Celebrity is delighted to announce that it has partnered with digital trailblazer Randi Zuckerberg to create the Take Care of YourSelfie program, encouraging guests to embrace a tech-life balance that complements their lifestyle onboard and at home.
Celebrity just launched the first part of the campaign with five specially designed “Take Care of YourSelfie” spa treatments and services that will be available at the Canyon Ranch SpaClub at Sea onboard Celebrity’s ships beginning next month. Each of these experiences—which include an indulgent vitamin facial (fACEial Time), a specialized manicure (Texticure) and an invigorating mind-body workout (Control ALT Delight), a VOYA organic seaweed body wrap (Get wrAPPed), and a detoxifying ritual (InstaGlow)—are designed to help guests rejuvenate their bodies and help achieve a successful and thriving tech-life balance.
We recently spoke to Randi about her favorite spa treatments, her most recent vacation, and most important, how she pampers her selfie!
Celebrity Cruises: As a busy businesswoman and mom, when’s the last time you took care of your selfie?
Randi Zuckerberg: For me, taking care of your selfie means taking time to focus on what’s truly important in life, what makes you happy. For me, that’s my family. We just had a little boy in October and I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to truly unplug, disconnect from work, and focus on being present with my new baby and family.
How do you personally balance the amount of technology in your life?
The fact that I can always be connected from the palm of my hand to anyone, anywhere in the world, is both a blessing and a challenge. Without this tech, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do—travel, give speeches, make television appearances—and be away from my family. Apps like Skype and FaceTime are magical. However, it’s easy to get so consumed with tech that we forget to put it away and focus on the people that truly matter. I make a concerted effort to put my gadgets away when I am around my sons so they don’t grow up feeling like they are competitive with a device for my attention. And when I’m out to dinner with my husband or a friend, I put the phone away and out of sight so I can give my undivided attention.
What are your favorite spa treatments and services?
I love yoga—it’s such a wonderful way to start the day. That’s why I’m really excited about our Control ALT Delight yoga treatment with the T-spheres. It’s an exciting new way to take a yoga workout that we’re all familiar with, and add that extra bit of intensity and oomph.
What’s your favorite part of Celebrity Cruises and the Canyon Ranch SpaClub onboard?
Where to begin? I recently had the opportunity to tour Celebrity Reflection, and I was blown away by the Persian Gardens area with the heated stone beds that overlook the ocean and the cold plunge room. It was so relaxing; I wanted to move in! The gym was also breathtakingly beautiful. Who wouldn’t want to workout overlooking the beautiful blue ocean!
What’s your favorite part of cruising?
I love cruising because there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re there on a romantic getaway or with a big group—everyone can have the exact vacation they want to have—and then all find time to join up as a group and have fun together. Personally, you’ll find me in the spa or on one of those heated beds in the Persian Gardens!
When’s the last time you went on vacation? Where did you go? What was your favorite part of it?
Last summer, before the baby arrived, we went on a “familymoon” to Hawaii. It was me, my husband, and our older son, Asher. We had a blast and we really took the time to unplug and enjoy one another because it was the last time we were going to go away as a family of three!
What do you wish you had more time to do?
As a busy working mom, it’s easy to put yourself last. There’s always something that needs to get done at work, at home, with the kids. For me personally, I love theater and the arts – I wish I had more time to see shows and go to arts events. One day, right?
