Great ship

Review for a Pacific Coastal Cruise on Explora I

Smaller ship cruising was a new experience for us, and we are now hooked ! Overall the ship itself is beautiful, exceptionally clean and great staff. Embarkation in Vancouver took over an hour , however our suite was ready which was nice. The suite itself was lovely, apart from the pillows which we found so uncomfortable and the duvet was far too heavy ! We asked for a top sheet which did ...

WOW! What a memorable experience we have had sailing aboard Explora I – literally the experience of a lifetime!! From the moment we set foot on Explora I, we watched the Crew work nonstop, going well above and way beyond to make sure that everyone’s experience is world class. Their eagerness to assist and their attention to detail – all the way from the Captain to the Room Steward – is ...

So, my wife and I started with our first booking on any cruise line in over five years with a spur-of-the-moment trip to the Caribbean. We literally booked the cruise from our home in the Dallas-Fort Worth area on 1/18/24 and landed in Barbados the following day (1/19/24), boarding Explora I that same afternoon. Let that sink in: After completing the booking mid-afternoon of 1/18/24, we ...

My wife loves to cruise -- me -- not so much. And as we live in Miami, the lure of the Caribbean is limited -- give me Key West, anytime. But just got back from the Explora, with dear friends, and it was truly amazing -- a floating Four Seasons is the best way to describe it. The restaurants were all terrific. The only so-so meal was my own fault. At Marble, the steakhouse, the server warned us ...

I can't imagine any more luxury AND any better price/value than Explora for best in class cruising. We've booked 2 more cruises with them because we're afraid once this gem is discovered, pricing will go up. From the luxurious accommodations on Explora I to the staff to the cuisine to the entertainment, the specialty coffees, I honestly can't suggest any improvements. We were giddy everyday; ...

I have been on a few cruises in my life, from budget to Luxury cruises. Let me tell you, when it comes to luxury, comfort, attention to detail, Explora Journeys figured out the perfect balance, between high end luxury and comfort. From the day you set foot onboard till the day you get off, the friendliness of all the hosts the luxury, the laidback lifestyle you will adopt while on board to the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Explora Journeys has set out to redefine luxury travel for the next generation, creating an experience for affluent travelers who want a luxury experience while being given plenty of options in a less stuffy atmosphere. During their fifth month of sailing, we spent eight nights traveling between Miami and Colon, Panama. Throughout the cruise, Explora met or exceeded every promise they set out to ...

I have recently returned from Explora 1 Caribbean Cruise and would highly recommend this cruise. As an avid cruiser and been on many ships - this to me is more like a giant yacht with all the facilities of a larger cruise, however, smaller number of guests, giving you the cruiser a much more enjoyable experience. The ports of call were lovely (visiting smaller islands within the Caribbean ...

Loved it but room for improvement

This was our first cruise post lockdown, and we were keen to try this new line as our old favourite, Crystal, went bankrupt. Goal to compare Explora with past experiences on Regent and Silversea, and with “new Crystal” (upcoming). We were not disappointed and would definitely sail with them again, but there were a couple of significant areas where we need them to improve if they want to be at ...

Beautiful ship that needs SOME improvement to be a 5 Star Cruise

Before I get into details and such, we would like to state that we enjoyed the cruise immensely. Most of my critical comments are in the area of food and human factors, which are subjective. We have another cruise scheduled for next January on Explora II. (Overall, 4 Stars). We still think that Regent is a far superior brand to Explora, but it’s still nice to have a choice. Embarkation. ...
