EXPLORA I, the first of four luxury best-in-class ships, set sail in 2023, with the remaining ships ready to set sail in 2024, 2025 and 2026.

Exquisitely designed with the guest and relaxed, home-like comfort in mind - and in partnership with the world’s foremost superyacht and luxury hospitality designers - the innovative ship seamlessly blends elegant Swiss precision with modern European craftsmanship and vibrant design.

With 461 oceanfront suites, penthouses and residences, guests will enjoy feeling closer to the sea and in port thanks to their floor-to-ceiling windows and personal private terrace. Suites will start at 35 sqm (377 sq ft) which makes them among the most spacious for the luxury cruise category.

Fourteen decks provide ample indoor public space, maximising guest choice and create areas of quiet seclusion and privacy. Generous outdoor decks boast more than 2,500 sqm (26,909 sq ft) delivering stunning views of the sea, with 64 private cabanas across 3 outdoor pools. A fourth pool, with a retractable glass roof, will allow swimming and poolside relaxation in any weather. Combined with various indoor and outdoor whirlpools on the ship’s promenade deck, the ship has been designed with water as a real focal point of the onboard experience - helping our guests discover their ocean state of mind.

Tailored to suit personal preferences, flexible dining times at nine distinct restaurants will provide unrivalled variety at sea. Each venue will celebrate global culinary talents, with a focus on provenance and wholesome ingredients sustainably sourced from local partners. To make sure guests are spoilt for choice, several indoor and outdoor bars and lounges will also be in place to unwind and relax.

The wellbeing experience onboard was inspired by our love for the sea, with a spacious indoor/outdoor spa and fitness area on board. From treatment rooms to state-of-the-art fitness equipment, group workout classes to personal training appointments, tailor-made programmes make keeping well while on holiday effortless and enjoyable. Bespoke wellness experiences at each destination will make relaxation and rejuvenation easily accessible both onboard and ashore.

Combining knowledge, experience and passion, our Luminaries enrich the personal and collective ‘‘Ocean State of Mind”.

Designed to enrich the soul, a programme of destination-inspired talks, courses and informal conversations that inspire exploration and discovery.

Reimagining entertainment with the right vibe for the right time, with the perfect blend of vibrancy and privacy across more than 10 indoor and outdoor bars and lounges.
