Explora Journeys, the luxury ocean cruise line of MSC Group, is extending its wave season promotion for the upcoming 2024 season. Guests can choose from itineraries onboard Explora I, which includes the beautiful scenery of Hawaii and the US Pacific Coast from March to May 2024, or Mediterranean ports from June to November 2024 onboard Explora I and Explora II beginning August 2024. The “Total Luxury Offer” is available until the end of February and guests can take advantage of savings of up to 40%.
Koray Savas, Vice President of Hotel Operations at Explora Journeys said, “Explora Journeys takes pride in curating itineraries that feature off-the-beaten-path destinations as well as marquee ports, providing a unique blend of relaxation and exploration, while allowing ease of access. Our European art of hospitality is seamlessly integrated into each journey, allowing those traveling with us to experience the warmth and authentic charm of these diverse destinations in effortless luxury and comfort. With a host-to-guest-ratio of 1:1.25, we offer a truly personalized experience for every guest onboard.”
Guests can explore from the city of Vancouver to the volcanic Hawaiian islands as they sail the Pacific Ocean aboard Explora I. The itinerary allows for 5 days at sea allowing guests to relax and enjoy an “Ocean State of Mind.” Once in port, guests can enjoy hikes in Volcano National Park, helicopter tours over active volcanoes, a private tour of Pearl Harbour, all while the ship remains longer in port giving time for a traditional Hawaiian Luau and so much more. Each itinerary will ensure guests will enjoy genuine cultural, historical and culinary offerings.
Summer of 2024, guests can sail both the Eastern and Western Mediterranean Sea aboard Explora I and Explora II. The itineraries range from 7- to 21-nights and include ports in Mykonos and Athens, Greece; Ibiza, Spain; Venice, Italy; and Istanbul, Turkey. Guests will be treated to lesser traveled destinations like Rovinj, Croatia; St. Tropez and Calvi-Corsica, France; Porto Cervo and Portofino, Italy; Syros, Greece; and Marmaris, Turkey. Each itinerary will give guests the opportunity to discover a blend of cultural, historical, and culinary delights.
Koray Savas further added, “Explora I and Explora II, which will join our fleet in August 2024 with her inaugural sailing from August 11, offer the discerning traveler the ultimate way to experience the Mediterranean this summer. From sunrise to sunset, guests can indulge in truly European luxury both onboard and in our carefully curated destinations. We stay longer in ports, offer overnight stays, and choose unconventional arrival and departure times to ensure a truly unique experience – far away from the crowds.”

Each ship offers six diverse restaurants serving culinary dishes from Mediterranean to Pan-Asian inspired. With 11 bars and lounges, four swimming pools, the ocean-inspired wellness facility, and spacious suites allow each guest to feel “Home at Sea.”
