Introducing Explora Journeys

Refined and effortless luxury at sea

Luxury Ocean Cruises


Featuring vibrant, modern and relaxed European design, the all-new cruise line Explora Journeys pairs immersive itineraries visiting worldwide locations on and off the beaten track, with a luxurious, boutique home at sea. Launching in 2023, they aim to restore the balance between adventure and relaxation with a focus on wellbeing and wellness on board, while slowing down the journey, giving you ample time to explore each destination in detail. While at sea expect all-inclusive gourmet dining, fine wines, premium spirits, generous outdoor spaces and all-ocean-front suites, helping you discover your ocean state of mind. 

Home at sea

Inspired by rich European heritage, Explora Journeys aims to create a refined and effortless experience, taking elements from only the most luxurious hotels, spas and restaurants in Europe. On board, you’ll find a seamless combination of boutique-style suites with modern amenities focusing on a reconnection to the natural elements of each curated journey. Inviting spaces with elegantly designed interiors, natural tones, soothing accents and unique pieces adorn the halls and lounge areas throughout. No detail has been spared, as hosts tend to every need, meaning guests can focus on the journey ahead.

All ocean-front Suites

While exploring the far corners of the globe, you’ll experience stunning landscapes, storied ports and ever-changing horizons without compromise, sailing between destinations in your ocean-front suite. Designed with refined elegance in mind, each suite, penthouse and residence offers floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces – meaning you’ll never miss a moment at sea. Expect space, privacy and a welcome bottle of perfectly chilled champagne.

All-inclusive dining

Explora’s all-inclusive dining experience will be tailored and sophisticated, bringing with it a dash of soul and personality. With multiple restaurants on board, you’ll discover myriad options from pan-Asian to steakhouse to fresh, Mediterranean flavours, all made with fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from local partners and drawing on regional influences and healthy choices. Alongside the restaurants, you’ll also find a coffee lounge, poolside dining, culinary school and in-suite dining available on all journeys.

Lounge & bars

Aside from the suites and restaurants, indoor and outdoor lounge areas will offer a sanctuary to relax and reflect on the adventures of the day. And, with included fine wines and premium spirits throughout, guests will be able to enjoy wines from the world’s renowned vineyards, sip on an aged Scotch whiskey or enjoy a refreshing gin and tonic out on deck, without having to worry about the bar bill.

Health & wellbeing

During each journey, guests will enjoy plenty of free time at sea to rejuvenate body and mind. Indeed, with a focus on health and wellbeing, each ship will offer a state-of-the-art fitness centre with tailored programmes as well as bespoke wellness experiences at each destination. That’s alongside a panoramic running track and the option of group classes so you don’t have to go it alone. For those looking to relax and unwind, there will also be a choice of refreshing pools on board, including one with a retractable roof, so you can enjoy a swim no matter the weather. And, each ship will have a generous indoor and outdoor holistic centre complete with specialised treatments and thermal pools.

With new ships and a new philosophy, Explora Journeys strives to create a sustainable and environmentally friendly experience both on board and during port visits, from ancient heritage sites to delicate marine habitats. With no single-use plastics on board and ships that will use a combination of hybrid-ready energy, waste management, water treatment, energy-saving systems and smart technology, they’ll set new envornmental standards for the wider cruise industry. All that alongside carefully selected partner programmes to further enhance in-port sustainability and environmental awareness.
