Immerse yourself in the charm and beauty of Europe's waterways and discover Luxury Cruising with Explora Journeys

We meander some of Europe's most charming waterways, liquid highways leading us from landmark to historic landmark. With six times as many canals as Venice, Hamburg sees us wind through Speicherstadt and past the sensational Elbphilharmonie; in design-forward, architecturally bold Rotterdam, we follow the wide river as it cuts a swathe through this Dutch-Brooklyn, and in Bruges we stroll the romantic tree and mansion-lined canals, restaurants and cafes spilling to the water's edge. Across the channel, we walk in the footsteps of kings, artists, playwrights and poets.

Explora Journeys offer immersive travel experiences that take you off the beaten path and into the heart of local cultures. They offer a unique way to explore the world, with a focus on authentic encounters and meaningful connections. Luxury ocean travel redefined for a new era, with every detail designed from scratch and crafted into an unmatched experience at sea.

Ocean Suites elegantly combine space and light to help you truly relax and feel closer to the ocean.

Ocean Terrace Suites at 35 sqm (377 sq ft) are amongst the largest in the category. Floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the suites in light and private sun terraces help guests truly relax and bring them closer to the ocean that carries them on their journey.

Explora Journeys is redefining ocean travel for a new generation of discerning explorers.
