← Back to who we are

Ocean View Monaco made its first steps in the world of beauty back in the 70s with high end and luxurious offshore hair salons.

After having spent long periods of time in Bali, we acquired consolidated know-how and practise in the Bali culture of well-being to sail into the adventure of opening a wellness centre (spa) onboard of one ship. It was 1995: several offshore hair and beauty salons to manage and one wellness centre onboard of a ship to play with and to discover. Almost 20 years later, what started as an adventure and curiosity, became our passion and core business: OVM grew into a spa management company with wellness centres onboard of all MSC Cruises’ ships.

Throughout the years, we supported and shared our partner’s achievements of new ship christenings, as those were new OVM spa christenings as well:

  • April 2003, MSC LIRICA
  • May 2004, MSC ARMONIA
  • 2004, MSC SINFONIA
  • June 2004, MSC OPERA
  • June 2006, MSC MUSICA
  • May 2007, MSC ORCHESTRA
  • April 2008, MSC POESIA

Starting from 2008, a new ship did not only mean a new OVM spa, but also an enrichment of OVM’s already exhaustive wellness and beauty menu with the introduction of brand new and innovative signature treatments:

  • December 2008, MSC FANTASIA – Candle massage
  • July 2009, MSC SPLENDIDA – Aurea del Mare
  • March 2010, MSC MAGNIFICA – Aurea Thalassa, Aurea Papaveris, Aurea Hydra Plus, Aurea Relaxa, Hymalayan Dream, semi-permanent eyelash lengthening and thickening treatments
  • May 2012, MSC DIVINA –Shu Uemura hair ceremonies, two new exclusive well-being beds enhance the effects of Himalayan Dream and Aurea del Mare (Himalaya Venus crystal salt and a water bed), Teenage Kicks programs and the first OVM vintage barber shop
  • March 2013, MSC PREZIOSA – Harmony Suite Rituals, Enjoy the Colour Program (at the spa bar), Adidas gear corner shop, redesign of the traditional thermal area to include an exclusive frigidarium and tepidarium
