Explora Journeys represents the ambition of the MSC Group and the Aponte family to redefine luxury ocean travel for discerning travellers.

Why are we unique? We don’t think of ourselves as a cruise line but rather a creator of journeys – enriching, respectful journeys that are inspired by the thing we are most passionate about – the sea. We are reinventing and redefining the classic luxury cruise, breaking conventions to deliver a uniquely different, new style of transformative ocean travel that inspires exploration in all its forms, all with a spirit and style of vibrant, cosmopolitan and relaxed European luxury.

With the first of four luxury ships scheduled to set sail in 2023, our itineraries will elegantly blend renowned destinations with lesser-travelled places for a journey that celebrates discovery and connections.

Onboard EXPLORA I, we’ll provide spaces that offer guests relaxed luxury - creating a home at sea – with 461 spacious and elegantly designed oceanfront suites, penthouses and residences, all with a private terrace. Guests will be spoilt for choice across nine distinct restaurants with flavours from around the world, whilst our array of indoor and outdoor pools, and the holistic wellness and fitness facilities ensure our guests can take time for themselves and truly let go.

Our style of service is authentically warm, cultured, intuitive and effortless – it’s why we think of ourselves as the perfect hosts, ensuring our guests’ expectations are always met and exceeded, while allowing them to truly relax and be themselves. This is perhaps the most important point of all – by intuitively understanding their needs, we help our guests restore life’s essential balance with a combination of discovery and appreciation for wellbeing and nature.

All this, to help our guests discover the Ocean State of Mind - reached only with Explora Journeys.
