Taking to social media, one user called out the prices, and labelled Paltrow “out of touch.”

“Gwyneth Paltrow, in my opinion, is one of the most out of touch celebrities out there,” he tweeted. “$6000 a ticket is far too much!”

Another lamented the actress, calling the cruise “pretentious.”

“For that amount of money I’d expect more than just a few talks,” another user wrote. “Goop just reeks of pretention – and I’m already prone to seasickness so this definitely won’t help.”

According to Celebrity Apex website, passengers who book a $4,049 suite can purchase a $750 ticket for the August 30 event.

Additional lodging per person starts at $2,129 for Inside room, $2,849 for the Veranda room, $2,949 for the Concierge Class room, and $3,299 for the AquaClass room.

Speaking to USA Today earlier this month, Paltrow said: “I love being on the water, I love being by the water and I love being in the water.

“With goop at Sea, we’ll be invoking that adventurous spirit with a series of transformative experiences led by a few of our most-trusted wellness practitioners and healers.”

Passengers on the Celebrity Apex will be able to join an intimate conversation between Paltrow and goop’s chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, three smaller group sessions led by expert talent (one for the body, one for the mind, one for the soul), and a closing keynote chat.

“We’ve coupled our commitment to wellness with goop’s incredible roster of cutting-edge doctors, practitioners, and thought leaders to bring you the ultimate wellness experience at sea,” said Celebrity Cruises.

“On Celebrity Apex’s August 26, 2020 sailing, suite guests will have the opportunity to engage with goop Founder & CEO, Gwyneth Paltrow and goop’s chief content officer, Elise Loehnen via a Q+A; and work with their very best healers.”

“Whether guests are looking to push past a block in a relationship, reconnect with their own body, quiet their inner critic, or find purpose, joy, or five minutes to de-stress, through transformative work, they will develop a toolkit that they can take with them off the ship and into their everyday life.”

Paltrow added: “We’ve had massive success with In goop Health, our wellness summit that translates goop’s content into a tangible, high-touch experience.

“This partnership with Celebrity Cruises allows us to bring goop to new audiences and to meet readers where they are. goop’s brand DNA is based on curiosity, and curiosity is an essential component of travel.”

The announcement follows the upcoming launch of Paltrow’s Netflix mini-series The Goop Lab.

The show will focus on the actress’ wellness and lifestyle company, giving viewers an insight into her business.

The six-part doc-series will premiere on Netflix 24 January. Each of the six episodes will focus on a different area of wellness from energy healing to female sexual pleasure.

Paltrow and Loehnen aim to try different wellness and lifestyle methods to enhance their experiences of life.

In one episode, they will meet with a sex therapist who says they need to look at themselves naked. Paltrow also discusses what she experienced when she visited a psychic.

Following the release of the trailer, many took to social media to air their concerns, with some criticising the s show for “unregulated” wellness treatments with some calling it “an insult to science.”

Dr. Jen Gunter, an OBGYN and author of The Vagina Bible said: “This looks like classic Goop: some fine information presented alongside unscientific, unproven, potentially harmful therapies for attention, with the disclaimer of ‘We’re only having conversations!'”

Canadian physician, Dr. Philippe Chouinard, tweeted: ‘The Goop Lab, also known as “How to Insult Labs Doing Actual Scientific Research.”‘

Paltrow launched her lifestyle brand Goop in 2008, beginning as a weekly-email newsletter before becoming a fully fledged brand complete with e-commerce, pop-up shops, a podcast and now a doc-series.
