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 incredible food option experience and freshly prepared always to your taste. This was by far one of the best cruise experiences I have ever had. What I loved was the dress code on Board, no stuffy black tie for dinners, rather resort style casual during the day, and for Diner resort style chic, however, should you wish to dress up, there is nothing stopping you from doing so, it is just not a requirement as with other cruises. I stayed in the Ocean view Terrace suite which is there entry level room, which has no shortage on living space in the room, complete with walk in closet and walk in shower, king size bed, lounge area and then the outside terrace which has a table and chairs along with a daybed lounger, the suite comes with a suite attendant that is there to attend to your request from cleaning to restocking the mini fridge with you favorite drinks and ice and in general just making sure that you have everything you require in the suite. with 4 pool deck areas and multiple hot tubs scattered around the ship on different decks, you will always be able to secure your spot in the sun to lounge by the pool and with multiple bar and lounge options on board, you will also never be too far from having your favorite drink. Multiple restaurants and culinary options all top of the line quality and healthy options, will ensure you never go hungry.

With a host to guest ratio of 1:25 per guest you will never feel like you have to wait for service anywhere.

The itinerary itself was also great, as Colombia has always been on my list of destinations I wished to visit and doing with a cruise ensure that this could be done safely. Colombia is vibrant and alive with color and amazing food and people.
