Explora Journeys Cruising With Multi-Generational Families

Explora Journeys is welcoming families aboard with a dedicated program that caters for multi-generations travelling together.

With suites that interconnect, a Nautilus Club for young and teenagers, and special destination experiences created to maximize enjoyment for all generations, families embarking on the trip of a lifetime on board EXPLORA I and EXPLORA II can expect an inspiring journey and wonderful memories.

Guests can choose from 78 interconnecting suites in three luxurious categories: Ocean Suites, Ocean Penthouses and Ocean Residences. These onboard apartments allow families the freedom to create their own ‘home at sea’ with all the privacy they require. Of course, groups don’t come in standard sizes, so families can choose an arrangement that will give them the space they need. All accommodation reflects Explora Journeys’ rigorous standards of modern European craftsmanship and vibrant design.

For guests booking a minimum of three/maximum of four suites, with one suite required to be an Ocean Penthouse or Ocean Residence groups can enjoy this space together as a social hub, to gather, relax and enjoy each other’s company in a private setting.

In addition, travellers with children will benefit from one under-18 in each suite sailing for free as well as complimentary transfers to the ship for all guests booked on the Journey Together Gathering program.

Even the most dedicated parents value a little downtime – a tranquil drink, a leisurely swim, or just sitting quietly and enjoying a panoramic view of a perfect sunset. They will find all this and more at the Helios Pool & Bar, reserved solely for adults. In the other public spaces – restaurants, lounges, pools and bars – children are more than welcome. At any time of the day, the culinary team will be delighted to offer a variety of choices to accommodate the wishes of our little guests.

Chris Austin, Chief Sales Officer, of Explora Journeys, said: “Designing our Journey Together Gatherings program has been a highly collaborative process with the travel advisor community.  We are proud to launch this unique program, providing a valuable opportunity to target gatherings of friends and multi-generational families.”

A family adventure is all about sharing, caring, learning and exploring – and building a wealth of unforgettable memories. Guests can look forward to all this and more. Children, for instance, will have fun while they discover more about the planet: ‘edutainment’ activities might include a visit to a space centre where they will be hosted by an astronaut. Budding oceanographers might find themselves on a whale-watching adventure brought to life by riveting stories from a marine biologist.
