Storylines luxury residential community at sea announces the most comprehensive health and wellness facilities at sea. The company has partnered with Wellness Solutions for the innovative space on its maiden ship MV Narrative.

Wellness Solutions founder and CEO Tony de Leede has been named Storylines' wellness consultant. De Leede is a veteran in the wellness industry and respected globally for his innovation in the space, including the hugely successful Fitness First franchise in Australia.

"Many aspects of what we provide have never been done before. It's a ground-breaking, new age solution - the future of what people want.” -Tony De Leede
The 10,000 square foot wellness center will be open 24/7 and includes a waterfront gym, lap pool, meditation room, fitness class spaces, relaxation pods, jacuzzi, steam room, breathing and meditation chairs, recovery massage chairs, infrared saunas and more. There are also digital immersive activities which resident owners can play on-demand in ‘zen rooms’ where they curate their own experience through a choice of scents, lights and digital content including yoga, dance, stretching, aerobics, movement, meditation and breathing exercises. The digital content is also available in the residences so that owners onboard can focus on their wellness journey in the comfort of their home.
De Leede, who is also a homeowner onboard MV Narrative, said “What we offer is a complete all-round wellness experience. These experiences are proven to reduce stress and increase productivity, which is an important aspect of the lifestyle as many in the community will be working remotely. The key is to deliver these activities in bite sized chunks, which is more easily digestible and likely to become part of your daily routine, and ultimately a part of your lifestyle,” he continued.
MV Narrative’s wellness center also includes an anti-aging clinic under the direction of Dr. Brian Martin which offers services such as physical therapy, acupuncture, remedial massage, IV nutraceuticals, bioidentical hormone replacement, chelation therapy, pain management, aesthetic procedures and rapid metabolic weight loss. All these services are just a part of an overall individually-tailored health plan for residents, which includes access to personal trainers and nutritionists.
The wellness center (located on Deck 6) is only one aspect of Storylines’ health initiatives. The company promotes an active lifestyle throughout the ship including on Deck 4 which has a marina for kayaks, paddle boards, snorkel & scuba gear. That area also has a bike storage garage for residents to explore port cities and island paradises by bicycle. Additionally, Deck 15 is an outdoor deck dedicated to healthy living with a high-tech running track, pickleball court, yoga sun deck and juice bar. All of this is in addition to a medical center on Deck 5.
Another part of Storylines’ extensive wellness initiatives is providing healthy food. The ship has its own solar powered hydroponic vegetable, herb and fruit garden on board. It also boasts a farm to table vegetarian restaurant which accommodates all dietary requirements, and a low-waste farmers market, the first of its kind at sea.
