Explora Journeys represents the ambition and long-held dream of the MSC Group and the Aponte family to create a transformative luxury ocean travel experience and brand that redefines the luxury cruise category.
Explora Journeys cruises offer a unique and immersive experience for travelers, blending adventure and comfort. Onboard, you’ll find comfortable cabins, stunning views, and delicious food. The cuisine on Explora Journeys is a highlight, featuring fresh and local ingredients, as well as regional specialties. You’ll enjoy healthy, hearty breakfasts and delicious dinners, accompanied by fine wines. The ships also have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, encouraging passengers to mingle and meet new people. Explora Journeys places an emphasis on sustainability and preserving the natural environment, making it the perfect choice for travellers who want to explore the world while minimising their impact.
The Aponte family records date back to the 17th century from which 300 years of sea-faring expertise, alongside an inherent passion and respect for the sea has developed.
Indeed, the ocean and its influence on us as human beings sits at the very heart of the Explora Journeys brand.
The oceans connect you with yourself, people and the places around you. It relaxes you, and creates an energy in you that inspires inner and outer discovery, broadens horizons and triggers new connections.
All of this, creates an emotional connection that is powerful, transformative, yet universal.
It’s called the Ocean State of Mind
A state of mind that has helped create Explora Journeys.
A state of mind inspired by the blue waters of our seas and oceans.
Characterised by calm, unity, elegance and joy, that encourages inner and outer exploration and discovery.
One that appeals to our audience’s desire for mindful travel.
A state of mind that embodies a consciousness of how guests go, not just where they go.
This is what Explora Journeys will uniquely provide for our guests.
