Explora Journeys – The Future of Luxury Cruise


Explora Journeys is a new luxury cruise line that was announced in 2021 and is scheduled to begin sailing later this year. The company aims to provide a unique and immersive travel experience for its guests focusing on sustainability and exploration. This new luxury cruise line represents the ambition and long-held dream of the MSC Group and the Aponte family to redefine luxury ocean travel for discerning luxury travellers.

The ship Explora I will be the first ship launched, followed closely by Explora II and then several others in 2024, 2026, 2027 and 2028, respectively.

Explora II

Discover Explora Journeys’ first ship, the Explora I

Explora Journeys will initially launch with one ship, the Explora I, which has been specifically designed for exploration in remote destinations. She will sail to lesser-known destinations around the world, including Antarctica, the Arctic, the Amazon, and the South Pacific.

This ship will offer luxurious, serene and spacious accommodations across each of the ship’s 461 ocean-front suites. These include Penthouses and residences that have been created with refined European elegance, comfort and simplicity as the focus to offer a real ‘Home at Sea’ to Explora Journeys guests.

This new high-standard luxury cruising company is committed to sustainability and responsible travel. Explora I will be equipped with the latest environmentally friendly technologies, such as a hybrid propulsion system, and the company will work to minimise its impact on the environment in all aspects of its operations.

Guests on Explora I will have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities, including kayaking, hiking, wildlife watching, and cultural tours. The ship will also have a team of expert guides and naturalists on board to provide educational lectures and lead excursions.
