Explora Journeys  is an exciting new ocean experience  aimed at travellers who  may not have  considered a cruise before, but love to travel.  This is an opportunity for these travellers to   explore worlds that can only be discovered at sea.  To discover new destinations that they have never been to before. 

Explora Journeys has  an ambition to redefine the luxury cruise category and set themselves apart from other ocean experiences.   The ships have been designed as if they are super-superyachts. In fact, the design team is made up of superyacht maritime architects in partnership with Fincantieri, the world’s finest luxury shipbuilders.  

The concept:  To bring the vibrant cosmopolitan world of European luxury to the oceans of the world.  Instead of cruises, they create journeys across the oceans of the world. Visits to places on and off the beaten track.

On board: Spaces that offer guests relaxed luxury, creating a home at sea. Restoring life’s essential balance with a combination of discovery and appreciation for wellbeing and nature. This is what our new discerning travellers have asked for and this is what they will enjoy on Explora Journeys.
