Global Morning News – A Brand New Luxury Ship with a Special Travel Lady Discount

Posted on: June 20, 2023

There is a lot of excitement in the cruising world with the announcement of a brand new cruise line – a small ship luxury cruise offering an all inclusive experience on the seas in some of the largest suites on the ocean. The new Explora I launches in July and you have a chance to experience this beautiful lady with a special discount from The Travel Lady.

But let’s look at the details first –

The ship:

  • 461 ocean front suites
  • 3 outdoor pools
  • 1 indoor pool
  • 9 dining experiences
  • Smallest suite on board is 377 sq ft.
  • Private terraces which are amongst the largest in the category
    • Large floor-to-ceiling windows with elegant interiors
    • Spacious walk-in wardrobe with a seated vanity area
  • Environmental supporting technologies
  • Hybrid-ready energy solutions
  • Waste-management and energy-saving solutions
  • No single-plastic used on-board and ashore

This is more like a super-yacht than a cruise line. Lots of space and pampering.

Explora is also trying to make this an all inclusive experience for you with the following inclusions – wifi, gratuities, unlimited beverages including fine wine and premium beverages.  In suite mini bar.

Which cruise to choose?

I really like this one – the Inaugural British Isles Cruise.

This departs Southampton on 24 August 2023 and sails for 10 days around the British Isles ending in Glasgow.

The timing is such that you get a chance to see the Edinburgh Tattoo. This famous show features performances from British Armed forces, commonwealth and international military bands and it takes place at Edinburgh Castle.

The ship visits the very top of Scotland and even pops over to Northern Ireland for a visit.

A quick visit to Liverpool and then up to Glasgow.
