Im confused about all the terms like health club, fitness room, gym, spa, and salon. Whats the difference?
Well, in General, the difference is that the purpose of each room their own and also they have different inventory. For example, in the fitness room you can find only cardio equipment or multiple weight dumbbells, yoga mats, while the gym will be a bar and a bunch of iron for strength training
Many cruise lines use the terms somewhat interchangeably. • Health Club: Generally, a health club is a large facility with a dedicated aerobic room or area; resistance equipment (free weights and exercise machines) area; steam and/or sauna rooms; and changing rooms. Health clubs often have juice bars and massage rooms, as well. • Fitness Room or Gym: These facilities usually refer just to an exercise room with free weights and machines. A few older cruise ships offer only such a facility. • Spa: A spa usually applies to an elaborate facility offering such personal services as face and body wraps, mud baths, aromatherapy, and similar pamperings. • Salon (or Beauty Salon): A salon usually refers to a beauty salon where hair styling, haircuts, facials, manicures and pedicures are offered. Today, most cruise ships cluster the facilities of their health club, spa, and beauty salon together, further obscuring the distinction of each.
