Explora Journeys, a European luxury lifestyle brand, is set to transform ocean travel through a synergy of the chicest ships and the most immersive itineraries that allow guests to discover further, travel deeper and linger a little longer at each destination. These are enriching holidays for the curious, cosmopolitan traveller who wants to create connections that last long beyond the cruise itself.
Designed in partnership with the world’s foremost superyacht specialists and harnessing cutting-edge maritime technology, the first ship in the Explora Journeys fleet, EXPLORA I, sets sail in July 2023, with EXPLORA II setting sail in August 2024 and four more to follow by 2028.
Onboard, European elegance permeates every detail. The 461 suites, penthouses and residences - each with sweeping ocean views from their floor-to-ceiling windows and private sun terraces - offer guests comfortable homes at sea, with unrivalled space and privacy. Whilst more than 27,000 sq feet of outdoor space includes three swimming pools and 64 private cabanas, plus an indoor pool with a retractable glass roof, and 9,700 sq feet for the spa and fitness studios ensuring guests can do as much (or as little) as they like.
A celebration of global culinary talents, cultures, and passions, the ships will showcase sophisticated and varied culinary experiences across six vibrant restaurants plus in-suite dining, as well as in five of the 12 bars and lounges onboard (eight indoor and four outdoor), and a chef`s kitchen where guests can discover and enjoy diverse flavours from around the world - a truly unique culinary and beverage `journey of discovery`, inspired by the Ocean State of Mind.
On sailings between five and 52 nights long, guests will venture both on and off the beaten path, with nine Inaugural Journeys and a series of mesmerising itineraries that feature longer days in port and overnight stays. The Explora Journeys team look forward to welcoming guests onboard starting July 2023.
