About Explora Journeys Cruises

Explora Journeys is the luxury brand from cruise giant MSC Cruises which will start out with one ship, Explora I, in 2023, followed by three identical ships each year afterwards.

With 922-passengers and 461 all-balcony suites, the ships come in very much at the larger end of the luxury segment.

The 14-deck vessels will have four swimming pools, including one with a retractable roof; nine dining "experiences" and a crew to guest ratio of 1.25 to 1.

MSC's owners, the Aponte family, have long harboured ambitions to have a dedicated luxury brand and Explora Journeys has their hand all over it, with the logo designed by Alexa Aponte-Vago, CFO of the MSC Group, daughter of founder Gianluigi Aponte and wife of Chairman Pierfrancesco Vago.

And concept -- "for guests who want to stay longer, leave later, and travel deeper,” -- and European design, is also part of that vision.

Their aim is to "reinvent the classic cruise experience for the next generation of cruise travellers".

A great choice for really slow cruising.

From the first images the ships looked great, but the info was coming in slow and the silence before the actual sailing was killing us.As our TA kept reminding us, my wife and I were among the first Belgians to book a cruise on Explora, almost as soon as this Panama sailing was announced.Read More

Stunning Explora1

The ship design, the well trained and positive crew delivering exemplary service, the mix of interesting ports, the brilliant cuisine and the engaging entertainment and activities have all blended to make a highly recommended Cruise experience.Small touches ( eg Steiner binoculars available in every suite, heated bathroom floors, beach towels at the gangway as you go ashore, reliably excellent coffee served by well trained baristas provided from all F&B outlets, generous supply of towels around all 3 pools and 7 jacuzzis, double as well as single, deck loungers) set the brand apart.Read More
