Achieve a Restful Vacation with Ease

Jan 26, 2016 03:33AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle




There are plenty of reasons to plan a getaway, but new research suggests that better sleep may top that list for many travelers.

A sleep-inspired survey recently conducted by Wakefield Research confirmed that people yearn for a good night’s sleep both at home and on vacation. More than half of Americans (57 percent) get less sleep than they need, but 59 percent of Americans frequently struggle to sleep well when on vacation. 

A sleep-worthy surface
When planning your next trip, keep in mind that some specific features of your accommodations can help ensure you have a journey filled with memories and plenty of rest. At the top of this list: your mattress.

Look for a travel host that values your sleep as much as you do, such as Princess Cruises, which is rolling out skillfully designed beds created specifically to deliver the ultimate night of sleep. The new Princess Luxury Bed features a plush, two-inch thick pillow top, a nine-inch, single-sided medium firm mattress for enhanced support and individually wrapped coils for less partner disturbance.

“We’re committed to ensuring that our guests come back from their cruise vacation feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “With our guests’ overall wellness in mind, we’ve invested in the design and development of our new Princess Luxury Bed with leading experts in both the science of sleep and design to offer the most comfortable and rejuvenating sleep at sea.”

Princess worked closely with board-certified sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus, “The Sleep Doctor” and clinical psychologist, bridging his scientific knowledge of sleep with the latest technology in comfort to design the optimal mattress for guests to experience true relaxation.

“It’s important to remember that above all, sleep is a sensory experience and all five of your senses must be prepared for slumber in order for sleep to come easily and last all night long,” Breus said. “I believe we’ve come up with some really unique aspects for not just the bed itself, but the entire experience that will allow guests to sleep really well.”

Aesthetic impact
An environment that encourages you to relax and unwind can also play a pivotal role in allowing you to return from a vacation feeling well-rested and renewed.

With this in mind, Princess also enlisted the help of renowned HGTV design star Candice Olson to ensure its new luxury beds make an immediate visual impact as guests enter their staterooms. Highlights include a European-inspired duvet and 100 percent luxurious Jacquard-woven cotton linens.

“I want to ensure Princess guests can experience just how beautiful sleep can feel,” Olson said. “The goal in creating this linen set for Princess Cruises is to create a bed that is calm, soothing and tranquil.”
