About Explora Journeys:
European elegance introduced to the oceans of the world
New luxury cruise line Explora Journeys combines centuries-old seafaring experience with superlative European refinement to introduce a bold new vision for luxury ocean travel.
Explora Journeys 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 of six ships in the Explora Journeys fleet, EXPLORA I, sets sail in 2023, closely followed by EXPLORA II in Summer 2024. With the founding family as passionate about preserving the sea as they are exploring it, each ship will be RINA DOLPHIN certified for reduced underwater noise whilst sustainability initiatives include no single-use plastic on board or ashore.
Onboard, European elegance permeates every detail. EXPLORA I and EXPLORA II will feature 461 suites, penthouses and residences – each with sweeping ocean views from their floor-to-ceiling windows and private sun terraces – offering 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, EXPLORA I and EXPLORA II 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.
Explora Journeys offers unlimited beverages, fine wines, and premium spirits, including in-suite minibar, speciality coffees teas and soft drinks available any time. For connoisseur guests or those wishing to elevate their experience or celebrate a special occasion, an ultra-exquisite selection of wines, spirits, and liqueurs, will also be available for an additional fee.
Their recently announced Ocean Wellness philosophy has been curated to assist guests to reach the Ocean State of Mind; offering an array of highly effective, restorative experiences far removed from urban noise and the always-on digital culture. Guests can immerse themselves in tranquillity, at one with the rhythm of the ocean. Over 10k square foot of space is dedicated to a luxurious spa, indoor and outdoor wellness areas, contemporary fitness facilities in partnership with TechnoGym, outdoor Sports Court and Running Track.
All this supported by an industry-leading guest to host ratio of 1.25 to 1, allowing for an intuitive, effortless, and culturally intelligent service style that makes for the perfect hosts on-board.
Experiences are tailored to small, intimate groups, from 2 to 25 guests. Always with an emphasis on exclusive, off-the-beaten-track encounters focussed on a slower pace of travel to allow guests to fully immerse themselves in each destination, whilst not leaving their mark on the places they explore.
Destination experiences are categorised into five different interest types to help guests curate the ultimate tailored adventure.
Beyond Boundaries: Once-in-a-lifetime, soul-stirring experiences for active travellers who enjoy pushing their boundaries and changing their perspective on the world.
Tailored Experiences: The travel equivalent of haute couture, these highly exclusive experiences are customised for those who value rarity in its most authentic form.
Enchanting Explorations: Meticulously designed to usher in the next level of exclusivity for small, intimate groups to witness exclusive moments, that are off limits to most.
Boundless Discoveries: These expanded must-do experiences include hidden wonders and VIP access for unbridled finesse.
In-Country Immersions: Designed as multi-day overland experiences with luxury accommodation before or after sailing, these are opportunities for guests to delve deeper into the culture of the countries they visit in intimately sized groups.
