You can book your own suite at Explorajourneys.com or find the perfect discounted Cruise online and then contact me for additional benefits. It’s honestly 100 times better if you book via my travel agency Scott and Thomas Travel, because every person receives a bonus €150 onboard credit from those who book through us (€300 per suite).

What I love about these trips is that Explora build 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.
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. I have an entire list of all sailings on sale and the discount. So if you’re looking for the best deals, just email me.
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 0-25% on most journeys. Solo travelers who book via Scott and Thomas also enjoy all the onboard credit of 150 Euros.
More about Explora Journey Cruises
I wrote about Explora Journeys when they first started selling this summer. Since then I’ve had guests and coworkers experience Explora for themselves and everyone has been blown away by the experience. Explora is an upgraded Seabourn or Oceania cruises with newer ships and a true luxurious experience at sea. The new company is part of the MSC shipping and Cruise family. They are the elevated and more distinguished small ship version of MSC Cruises.
Explora is Luxury Redefined
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.
The ship features 461 ocean front suites with huge balconies and the ships are similar size to Oceania cruise ships. The Ocean Terrace suites are impeccable! At 377 square feet, they are among the largest in the industry. There’s also zero obstructed view cabins or Oceanview cabins on the ship. Meaning every suite is perfect for enjoying the deck! Even the verandas feel huge, nearly as large as inside cabins on some larger ships! The rooms also feature true king beds, not just two twins pushed together.
Every suite and journey comes with the following:
- In-suite welcome bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label
- Private refrigerated complimentary mini-bar, replenished dairy
- Espresso machine, kettle and teapot with a complimentary selection of coffee and teas
- Complimentary personal refillable water bottle for each guest
- Pair of binoculars for guests’ use during their journey
- Technogym Case Kit with a smart range of fitness gear is available upon request for in-suite training
- Spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower and heated floors
- Plush bathrobes and bath linens from Frette
- Dyson Supersonic TM hairdryer and illuminated make-up/shaving mirror
Explora World-Class Cuisine
One thing I love about the Explora ships is their dedication to a world class dining experience. Culinary excellence is at the heart of the Explora Journey Cruises experience. A diverse array of 11 different dining options awaits passengers, each one a gastronomic journey in itself.
From fine dining establishments featuring world-renowned Michelin rated chefs to casual eateries offering a taste of local flavors, the cruise ensures that every palate is satisfied. Explora is one of the ONLY cruise lines to feature a Michelin rated star chef on EVERY cruise. Not just a michelin inspired menu. The chef sails with Explora! Making their specialty restaurant among the best at Sea!
Truly All inclusive Cruising
Don’t worry about the cost of everything, because when you sail with Explora you are saving thousands because you don’t need the added packages for wi-fi, beverages, and more. It’s all included.
When you choose to cruise with Explora Journeys, the following elements are included in the price you pay at the time of booking:
- Welcome champagne on arrival
- Complimentary dining in nine restaurants
- Unlimited beverages, including fine wines and premium spirits
- Complimentary teas, coffees, and soft drinks
- Unlimited WIFI access throughout the ship for 3 devices per person
- Access to the spa thermal area
- Wellness and fitness activities
- All gratuities
Get on the ship, enjoy and relax! The only thing that cost extra is the Michelin star chef’s table tasting menu with a wine pairing for 80 euros. A huge discount compared to actually dining at a Michelin rated restaurant which often costs well over $300 per person. When you get off the ship, excursions are extra, but these are optional.
Onboard Entertainment and Enrichment:
Beyond the allure of the destinations, Explora Journey Cruises offer a plethora of entertainment and enrichment options on board. From Broadway-style shows and live music to educational lectures and wellness programs, there’s always something to engage and delight passengers. Explora also has a 14 member house band placing in different groupings through the ships. The cruise line aims to provide a well-rounded experience, catering to a diverse range of interests.
On Explora you get all the benefits of a large ship, without the crowds or the people. With only 900 people max, you will always have space to stretch out at one of the 4 pools without the need to fight for space.
