Exploring new sights with Explora cruises


Explora looks to offer travelers a unique luxury experience on the water. The company's first ship started sailing this year and new ships will be added to its fleet over the next few years. (Read our blog post here about the Explora's great features and luxury experiences.)

With the new ships come new destinations for Explora. The company recently released its sailing schedule through 2026, so let's take a look at a few of its upcoming journeys!

With two ships, EXPLORA I and EXPLORA II, setting sail in 2024, Explora will offer a wider range of destinations and itineraries. Upcoming journeys range from shorter getaways lasting around a week to longer voyages spanning up to 21 nights. Explora offers a slower travel pace than many other companies and overnight stays in ports to allow travelers more time to enjoy each destination.

With growing interest in North America, EXPLORA I will make its way from Barcelona to the Caribbean, where it will sail through the Winter 2024 season. Popular destinations will include Bridgetown, Pointe-à-Pitre, St John’s and San Juan.

Beginning in April 2025, EXPLORA I will make its voyages through the Mediterranean, allowing travelers to enjoy beautiful landscapes, rich history, and thriving culture. Travelers will get to explore destinations along the Dalmation Coast and Aegean Sea.

Plenty of beautiful sights, culinary experiences, and culture await travelers in winter 2025 to 2026 as EXPLORA I travels through the Red Sea and Arabian Peninsula.

EXPLORA II's maiden journey will span from Barcelona to Civitavecchia (Rome). Travelers will be able to explore picturesque stops throughout the Western Mediterranean through November 2024, visiting places like Ibiza, Port-Vendres, Portofino, Monte-Carlo, and Monaco. The ship will then make its way to the Caribbean for perfect winter getaways for travelers wanting to soak up the sun.

EXPLORA II will make its way back to its Mediterranean destinations before returning to the Caribbean in winter 2025-2026. Journeys will include stops in Pointe-a-Pitre in Guadeloupe; Roseau, Dominica; Little Bay, Montserrat and Marigot, St. Martin.
