Our Insight

Why Explora Journeys?

Explora Journeys aims to appeal to a cosmopolitan mix of sophisticated travellers who appreciate great food and wine, immaculate service and the most comfortable surroundings, but who are also looking for a slower paced way to travel, with time to soak up the destination and come face to face with different ways of life. Superb worldwide itineraries have been launched, with inaugural sailings highlighted in each region.

On board Explora Journeys' Explora I and Explora II there are 461 oceanfront suites and residences with floor-to-ceiling windows and all with private terraces. Suites start at an impressive 376 square feet for entry level accommodation, so no matter the category you choose, you are going to enjoy plenty of private space.

With fourteen passenger decks there is ample indoor public space and plenty of facilities. Outside, there are generous outdoor areas boasting more than 27,000 square feet of space with three outdoor pools. A fourth pool, with a retractable glass roof, allows swimming and poolside relaxation in any weather.

An attractive guest to crew ratio of 1.25 to 1 highlights the focus on service, and the benefits that can result from that including flexible dining in a great choice of restaurants - six in total, with a variety of cuisines and, of course, top quality ingredients sustainably sourced. Entertainment is low key and high quality. Rather than broadway-style shows in a large theatre, there are instead several more intimate venues offering more choice to discerning guests.

MSC has taken an admirable lead in the development and implementation of new technology, planning adaptable technology in the drive for a net zero future and a total commitment to recycling. The design incorporates provision for battery storage allowing future hybrid power generation, as well as the latest selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, enabling a reduction of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 90%. Ship-to-shore power capabilities (cold ironing) will avoid CO2 emissions while in port, assuming the port has the appropriate technology.
