With international travel back in full swing, cruise ships are taking to the seas, with the Cruise Lines International Association predicting that passenger numbers this year will surpass 2019, thanks to an anticipated 31.5 million cruise passengers for 2023. Explora Journeys, for its part, has set off on its maiden voyage from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Reykjavik, Iceland. Before arriving in Reykjavik, it will spend seven nights traversing the majestic landscapes of Lerwick, the Shetland Islands, and Kirkwall, Orkney. This exciting expedition is the first in a series of cross-continental itineraries that seek to redefine the traditional cruising experience.

Some would say that modern-day cruise ship travel has lost its magic, trading enriching experiences for over-bloated itineraries and overcrowded facilities. But traveling isn’t always about ticking as many bucket list items as possible – it can also be about breaking away from your daily reality to reconnect with yourself and nature. Explora Journeys provides guests cultural immersion and an opportunity for inner and outer discovery on their quest for the Ocean State of Mind. Inspired by the turquoise waters of the seas and oceans, this mindset is characterized by calm, unity, elegance, and joy, allowing passengers to get in touch with their higher selves as they discover new destinations.

During the ship’s maiden voyage and on further trips to come, guests can enjoy a variety of en suite and onboard amenities. A welcome bottle of champagne and complimentary Wi-Fi allows guests to settle in peacefully while getting to know their home away from home. Then, they can choose from nine distinct culinary experiences so the palate can go on an adventure, too. Access to the spa’s thermal area is available for those who need to wind down, plus well-being and fitness programs to ensure the mind and body are ready for the days ahead. All this is bolstered by authentic, cultured, and intuitive service from Explora Journeys’ team of hospitality experts for an unparalleled sensory experience.

Explora Journeys, which has recently been brought under the same Ireland and UK umbrella as MSC Cruises, has themed its maiden voyage around the charming allure of the Scottish highlands and Icelandic geysers. The first chapter unfolds in Glasgow, where a cutting-edge arts scene is a feast for the eyes, from Medieval spires to Victorian gems. One could duck into museums or explore the rugged countryside before hopping on again to hike the 2,000-foot heights of Fort William, the next stop. After enjoying the panoramic views, more breathtaking sights await at the Isle of Lewis, where people often spot seals and whales, and at Kirkwall, where travelers can bask in the ancient wonders of sites like the Standing Stones of Stenness.

Then, the harbor town of Lerwick is an ideal spot to take a break, where tourists can visit historical ruins and find the locale’s iconic ponies. The journey isn’t over yet – the next stop is Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, where there are more ewes than people, to partake in Faroese cuisine and shop for sweaters to take home. Everything commences in a two-night stay at the final destination, Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital. From snow-capped volcanoes to rides on Icelandic horses to shooting across glaciers on snow scooters, adventure-seekers will surely meet their match. For those who want a more relaxed experience, there are always the wellbeing springs, the blue lagoon, and the geothermal-fired bakery and greenhouse. After that, it’s another seven nights on the beautiful ship as it returns to the Danish capital.

As Explora’s first cruise ship continues to stretch her sea legs across the oceans, the company is gearing up to take its seat at the table of luxury world travel, continuing to curate exquisite experiences for its guests. So whether you’re a thrill-seeker looking for edge-of-the-earth encounters, a discerning traveler on the hunt for a truly customized experience, or a first-time sojourner who wants to tick off must-do adventures sans the hassle, Explora Journeys might have something for you.
