Embrace the next era of luxury ocean travel in 2023/24 with Explora Journeys.

Founded on more than 300 years of maritime history, Explora Journeys will redefine everything you think you know about luxury cruising. Launching in 2023, this truly unique operator seamlessly combines immersive, destination-led discovery with an onboard experience that takes cues from the world’s finest hotels.

Sailing aboard the custom-built Explora I, you’ll stay in elegantly-appointed accommodation, enjoy world-class dining in various venues, and experience the best hospitality at sea. While ashore, you’ll have the opportunity to explore each destination in ways never previously thought possible, courtesy of a curated programme of shore excursions and bespoke tours.

Whether you choose to discover the picturesque ports and harbours of the Mediterranean or venture further afield to South America or Hawaii, Explora Journeys promises to take you there in unrivalled style and comfort.

Explora Journeys Ships

Explora Journeys ships elegantly combine European-style design and modern technology to breathtaking effect. Every element of the ship’s layout is considered; you’ll have warmth and comfort for those moments when peace and relaxation are needed, and a range of activities and facilities available when you’re looking for a way to pass the time. As a result, it’s almost simplistic to categorise the vessels as ‘cruise ships’. Instead, Explore Journey’s ships have more in common with luxury hotels, making Explora Journeys the perfect choice if you’re looking for an alternative to traditional resort-based holidays.

Explora Journeys’ flagship, Explora I, will debut in the spring of 2023 with new vessels set to follow in 2024, 2025, and 2026. The ships will be identical and offer 461 ocean-facing suites, nine restaurants, and best-in-class wellness facilities for no more than 922 guests.

Explora Journeys Itineraries 2023 / 2024

Explora Journeys will debut in May 2023 with an Inaugural Journeys Collection consisting of twenty voyages. The cruises available in the spring and summer include sailings to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, with autumnal cruises in Canada and New England departing in September. In addition, the ship will explore the Caribbean and South America in the winter before heading to Hawaii and Alaska in spring 2024.

Explora Journeys will visit 40 countries and 132 ports aboard Explora I in her maiden season. The itineraries range from 6 to 44 nights and feature a combination of visits to marquee ports alongside lesser-travelled locations. Furthermore, many Explora Journeys itineraries include late-evening departures, and overnight port stays, allowing you to make the most of your time at each destination.
