Blue World Voyages to launch as new wellness cruise line

For fitness diehards, your ship has come in: The wellness-dedicated cruise line Blue World Voyages is readying to launch. 

Devoted to fit and active lifestyles, the line— led by Miami-based fitness professional and entrepreneur Gene Meehan — is gearing up to acquire three 350-passenger ships over the next five years, offering voyages with all on-board programming, cuisine and excursions designed with the line's sports/wellness/health ethos in mind. 

For instance, guests might sign up for cross-training, cycling or meditation excursions ashore; get a treatment at the palatial on-board spa; or take a dip in the ship's retractable lap pool.
