Explora Journeys unveiled the design of its Ocean Penthouses and Ocean Residences on the Explora I, the luxury cruise line’s first ship scheduled to take its maiden cruise from England on July 17. 

Ocean Penthouses range from 463 to 732 square feet, and Ocean Residences range from 753 to 1,604 square feet. Explora described Ocean Penthouses as offering “a sumptuous retreat with oceanfront floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive terraces to unwind and relax.”

Penthouses offer a dining area for four and a large seating area. All have a walk-in wardrobe with a seated vanity area and feature a Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, heated floors in the bathrooms, binoculars, wireless bed-side charging, a personal mini-bar replenished according to the guests’ preferences, an espresso machine with biodegradable pods, a kettle and teapot, and a complimentary personal refillable water bottle for each guest. 

Ocean Residences offer separate living, dining and sleeping areas. They have a panoramic oceanfront terrace with a private outdoor whirlpool, a dining table and sun loungers. 

The names of the residences — Cocoon, Cove, Retreat and Serenity — reflect the calming effects of the ocean and the home-at-sea feeling. The Cocoon and Serenity Residences feature wrap-around terraces, while Cocoon, Serenity and Retreat residences offer a separate bathtub and walk-in-shower. Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble is used in the bathrooms of Cocoon, Serenity and Retreat residences. 

All Ocean Residences are served by a team of hosts providing butler service 24 hours a day.

Explora Journeys is working with Italian furniture company Molteni&C to furnish sofas, chairs and some outdoor furniture in suites. Also, suite terraces have been furnished with pieces by Manutti. Luxury bed and bath linens are from Frette.

Each suite will feature a master artwork in the living room along with additional complementary pieces and curated decorative elements.

The Explora I will feature in-suite fitness equipment by Technogym. Ocean Penthouses will be equipped with the Technogym Kit, while Ocean Residences will have an additional Technogym Bench available for guests.

Guests are welcomed with a chilled bottle of champagne: Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label in Ocean Suites, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2015 in Ocean Penthouses and Dom Pérignon Vintage 2013 in Ocean Residences.
