 The brand’s Ocean State of Mind philosophy means immersive experiences that reward cruisers physically, intellectually and spiritually. EXPLORA I called on the port of Copenhagen, Denmark, on Aug. 15 before a sailing to Hamburg, Germany. After several weeks in Northern Europe, the ship crosses the Atlantic to winter in North America and the Caribbean Sea before returning to Europe in summer 2024 for Mediterranean Sea voyages.

EXPLORA II is currently being built in Italy, expected to come into service in August 2024. The first of two liquefied natural gas-powered vessels to join the line’s fleet, EXPLORA III, is expected in 2026, with EXPLORA IV in 2027.
