Explora Journeys logo

Explora Journeys is the new luxury lifestyle travel brand launched by the MSC Group with the ambition to redefine the luxury cruise category.

The concept: Vibrant, cosmopolitan, relaxed European luxury at sea. Instead of cruises, Explora Journeys create authentic journeys – of the mind and across the world's oceans. 

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

Explora I


The ocean and its influence sit at the heart of the Explora Journeys brand. The ocean connects you with yourself, people, and the places around you.

It relaxes you and creates an energy that inspires inner and outer discovery, broadens horizons, and triggers new connections.

All of this creates a powerful, transformative, yet universal emotional connection. It's the Ocean State of Mind.

The Ocean State of Mind is reached only with Explora Journeys. It’s why all they do is designed to offer refined yet effortless luxury, with the opportunity to explore and transform the inner and outer self, resulting in a uniquely rewarding physical, intellectual, and spiritual state.


All Suite Ships

Each of Explora Journeys 461 ocean-front suites, penthouses and residences – all DESIGNED with a refined, European elegance – are created to bring guests CLOSER to the ocean itself, with floor-to-ceiling windows and PRIVATE sun terraces.

With unrivalled space and privacy – and service that means everything is taken care of – you can relax into your comfortable home at sea with your luggage delivered and a chilled bottle of champagne waiting as you undertake your ocean journey.
