Shortly after Explora Journeys first ever sale to celebrate Black Friday, the brand new luxury cruise operator is offering their second ever sale. Since their launch in August 2023, Explora has been slow to offer discounts or bonuses for early adopters outside of additional onboard credit via status matches. Now, Explora Journeys is offering both discounted fares and additional onboard credit! Plus our customers can get extra onboard credits! The brand-new five-star luxury ocean cruise company is welcoming 900 passengers or less at some of the lowest prices seen in this market! Come experience the ocean state of mind on Explora Journeys.
Explora Sale – Total Luxury Offer
Explora Journey current sale is the Total Luxury Offer. You can save up to 40% off rack rates during this promotion. Then to sweeten the deal, every suite also receives EUR 400 Journey Experience Credit (€200 per person) aka onboard credit (OBC) per suite. The icing on the cake, deposits are reduced to just 10%! Making this a perfect opportunity to plan your 2024 vacation!
Yet, I can sweeten this offer even more! Because everyone who books via Scott & Thomas Travel and asks for me (ask for Rocky!) or emails me directly receives an additional €150 per person (person 1 and 2 in each suite). Meaning that EVERY suite that books via this offer earns €700! Just one more reason to still use a travel advisor!
The Journey Experience Credit (JEC) aka OBC can be used towards all onboard experiences including dining experiences, the ultra-exclusive selection of wines, cocktails and beverages, our collection of Destination Experiences, treatments at Ocean Wellness – The Spa, curated shopping at The Journey, as well as towards onboard suite upgrades.
Why Travel with Explora
Explora Journey is owned and has the backing of MSC. Meaning this company is stable and is not going away. Yet instead of welcoming 3,000 plus people on board, this ship is pure luxury and a smaller ocean liner, with all the bells, whistles, spa, gym, pools, restaurants, and more! Trying to attract those who typically sail with Seabourn, Regent Seven Seas, Viking, or SilverSea to experience something new, modern, and different. The M/S Explora I is already in the water and Explora II is coming in 2024. If you like the “suite part” of larger ships, such as the Royal Caribbean Haven, or the Signature Suites on Holland America, come over to Explora and try something new!
Explora Journey Cruises have redefined the concept of luxury on the high seas. Learning from Crystal Cruises, Seabourn and Silversea, they have this down. From the moment you step on board, you are enveloped in an atmosphere of opulence and comfort. Impeccably designed cabins and suites offer panoramic views of the ocean, providing a constant connection to the natural beauty that surrounds you. The attention to detail is unparalleled, with every inch of the ship exuding an air of sophistication.
In a world filled with bustling cities and fast-paced living, there’s an undeniable allure to escaping it all and setting sail on the open seas. That’s where Explora Journey comes in. With built in sea days, to enjoy the 5 star resort at sea, you can both see new places and enjoy relaxing without port fatigue! Plus, right now, you can experience Explora Journeys at a highly discounted rate!
Explora Journeys welcomes you to explore the Caribbean, Atlantic, Pacific Oceans and further around the world at the lowest prices recently seen in luxury. As we plan your trip on Explora Journey Cruises, prepare to be transported to a realm of luxury, exploration, and discovery!
With 461 all Oceanfront balcony suites, zero inside rooms, zero obstructed views, 11 restaurants, 4 pools, an adults only area and more. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be seeking out this luxury cruise line. The reviews are in, and EVERYONE is impressed!
Come and experience all inclusive cruising, where nearly everything is included. I invited my readers to experience explora earlier this year and wrote more about how awesome Explora Journey is, and why Explora is such a good deal with all of the inclusions. A quick recap below.

- Welcome champagne on arrival

Explora Cruise Sale
Explora Journeys is offering their second ever sale, and it falls just in time for the holidays. The sale ends on January 31, but based on their previous sale, DO NOT WAIT! As Explora sells more rooms, they reduce the discount. Similar to what you see on airlines. I had a family book 4 rooms on a single sailing, and when their friends wanted to join the discount dropped from 50% off to 20% off!

What I love about these trips is that Explora builds in extra sea days. Too often guests have port fatigue and spend every day running. Explora invites you to relax and enjoy the pools, spa, open bar, and entertainment. Every sailing has 1-2 sea days on a 7 day sailing. More on longer sailings. You can actually disconnect, enjoy the spa and the ship, and just relax! You don’t have to go go go while on vacation!
Don’t see what you’re looking for, but want to try Explora or another small ship? Talk to me, shoot me an email and I can help you find the best deal!
There are obviously hundreds more options on sale. You can email me for more details or check out Explora Journey’s website. Just be sure to book via me to get your additional onboard credit which can be utilized at the Spa, towards an excursion, or for the Michelin star dining option. If you reach out via our main website you must ask for me, Rocky to get the additional onboard credit.
Solo Travelers on Explora
Explora Cruises is one of the only operators with little to no solo supplement. Unheard of in an industry that often charges 100% more when traveling alone. Explore the world with your friends in your own suites or bring a single friend along. Consider traveling alone and meet new friends on your journey. Solo supplements are currently between 10-25% on most journeys. Solo travelers who book via Scott and Thomas also enjoy all the onboard credit of 150.
Explora Journeys if offering up to 40% off luxury cruises in 2024. If you want to experience smaller ships, a premium all suite experience with near 1:1 staffing where just about everything is included, then Explora Journeys is for you. Book via Scott and Thomas and ask for Rocky to receive up to €700 per suite as onboard credit. A bonus of 300 euros for booking via me vs directly! This deal is among the best in the luxury industry segments! Or easier yet just email me and we can lock your deal in. The current total luxury offer is good until Jan 31, 2024 but do not delay! Explora has a bad habit of reducing the discounts as more people book rooms.
