Get Goop-y at sea with Gwyneth Paltrow’s wellness cruise

We love a themed cruise here at Travel Weekly, so you can imagine how tickled pink we were to learn that Celebrity Cruises is hosting its first ‘Goop at Sea’ experience.

Yes, THE Goop.

For the uninitiated, Goop is Gwyneth Paltrow’s wellness and lifestyle brand that plummeted its way to fame for encouraging women to steam their vagina and want you to allow bees to sting you.

Most recently, Paltrow’s brand made headlines for selling a candle that smells like her vagina.

But we digress.

Goop is striding its way into the travel industry, hosting an experience onboard Celebrity Apex from 26 August 2020 to 6 September 2020 on a journey through the Mediterranean.

The cruise will even be graced by the presence of Paltrow herself and Goop’s chief content officer, Elise Leohnen, who will be joining the cruise from 30 August to host a special onboard experience for retreat goers.

Paltrow and Leohnen will be joined by the brand’s very best ‘healers’ and some ‘expert talent’ who will host three workshops (one for the body, one for the mind and one for the soul).

“Goop’s brand DNA is based in curiosity, and curiosity is an essential component of travel. With Goop at Sea, we’ll be invoking that adventurous spirit with a series of transformative experiences led by a few of our most-trusted wellness practitioners and healers,” Paltrow said in a statement.

The cruise promises to help passengers “push past a block in a relationship, reconnect with their own body, quiet their inner critic or find purpose, joy, or five minutes to de-stress”.

Tickets are available for guests who book suite class accommodations and start at US$75o (around $1,070).

So, if you or your clients have cash to burn, need to get their lives together or just REALLY want to meet Paltrow, you can go here for more info.
