A new chapter in luxury ocean travel has begun with the official delivery of EXPLORA I, the first luxury ship to join the esteemed fleet of Explora Journeys. This momentous occasion marks a significant milestone for the brand, which aims to offer discerning luxury travelers a transformative and purposeful ocean travel experience like no other.

Setting Sail for Extraordinary Journeys

The maiden journey of EXPLORA I will depart from Copenhagen, Denmark, on 1 August 2023, whisking guests away on a remarkable seven-night sailing to Reykjavik, Iceland. Along the way, travelers will have the opportunity to explore the captivating landscapes of Lerwick, Shetland Islands, and Kirkwall, Orkney, before reaching the picturesque destination of Reykjavik.

But the adventure doesn’t stop there! EXPLORA I will continue to traverse the majestic landscapes of Northern Europe, offering a range of itineraries both on and off the beaten path. Afterward, the ship will cross the Atlantic Sea via Greenland to spend autumn in North America, winter in the Caribbean, and spring on the US West Coast and Hawaii. Finally, it will return to Europe in Summer 2024 for an exquisite collection of journeys in the Mediterranean Sea.

Unrivalled Luxury and Design

EXPLORA I perfectly blends elegant Swiss precision with modern European craftsmanship, delivering an unparalleled luxury experience that captivates the senses and encourages an “Ocean State of Mind.” With 461 oceanfront suites, penthouses, and residences designed as “Homes at Sea,” guests can indulge in sweeping ocean views, private terraces, and an array of culinary delights across six vibrant restaurants.
