Explora Journeys has released its first set of destination experiences, as part of the inaugural Mediterranean itineraries for Explora I, which is set to launch in May 2023.
The luxury line said it will offer a “blend of well-known destinations”, such as Ibiza, with “lesser-known ports”, including Calvi in Corsica, France, and Kastellorizo, Greece.
In every destination, guests will be able to discover “authentic Mediterranean cultural, historical, and culinary delights”, Explora added.
Experiences will take place in small groups, from two to 25 guests.
Examples include a private tour to the Premier Grand Cru Classé Château Margaux, an estate north of Bordeaux, France, and a flamenco masterclass in Cadiz, Spain, or photography class in Mykonos, Greece.
Explora Journeys offering ‘transformative’ experiences
The line’s head of itinerary planning and destination experience Sacha Rougier said: “Blending luxury and adventure, Explora Journeys will ensure a one-of-a-kind experience.
“Enriching and exhilarating – Explora Journeys connect travellers with the unique destination experiences of a lifetime, and we look forward to offering these authentic, immersive, and transformative experiences to our guests.”
CEO Michael Ungerer added: “The ingenuity of the bespoke destination experiences created by Explora Journeys is set to surpass expectations, leading our guests on a journey of self, social and active discovery, fulfilment, and enrichment, easing them into an ocean state of mind.
“Explora Journeys is committed to delivering inspiring and sustainable tourism as we strive to leave a positive footprint for the next generation.”
Earlier in July, the line signed an agreement for the construction of an additional two hydrogen-powered ships, taking the total fleet from four to six vessels.
In addition, Explora III and IV will now also be powered by LNG, with the two ships to be enlarged to enable the installation of a new generation system.
