Constellation Journeys responds to strong luxury touring demand

New cruise charters with Emerald Cruises, Silversea and more

Constellation Journeys has scaled up its global cruise and touring operation, releasing a range of bespoke journeys to satisfy ‘extraordinary demand’ for exclusive groups through 2024/2025.

The Melbourne-based company expanded its cruising journeys via partnerships with Emerald Cruises and Silversea. Launched in 2017, the company designs its all-inclusive journeys around adventurous travellers with a penchant for escorted luxury touring, by privately chartered aircraft, luxury train or cruise vessel.

“We are thrilled with response to our style of journeying and have increased our inventory accordingly to meet extraordinary early demand,” said Dan Kotzmann, Founder and Managing Director, Constellation Journeys.

“The challenge for our industry in recent years has been a trend across the industry of very late bookings, as consumer confidence slowly recovered. However we are now seeing a very clear reversal of that pattern. Our guests are booking with certainty, two or more years in advance,” he said.

Kotzmann said only two suites on the privately chartered Aqua Mekong (owned by Aqua Expeditions) remain available for Constellation Journeys 2024 Vietnam, Cambodia and Mekong journey departing in February, with the company’s 2023 Heart of Central Europe tour, a 19-day grand private tour, already fully booked.

“It booked out so swiftly, we immediately announced a repeat journey departing in October 2025,” Kotzmann said.

“We’re excited to have also exclusively chartered the all-suite Emerald Sakara which was launched in August 2023, to take our guests to discover Islands of the Mediterranean. She is luxurious, built in the style of a superyacht, yet still small enough to dock in the heart of many gorgeous European locations.

Kotzmann said Constellation Journeys was equally delighted to continue its relationship with Silversea Cruises in 2024.

“We will have guests joining Silver Wind, a small, ultra-luxury expedition ship, to explore the Arctic region in June next year and Constellation Journeys guests will also join Silver Shadow to discover Canada and New England in August,” he added.

Constellation Journeys is also offering an itinerary through Central Europe by privately chartered train, along with a trip through India by private jet and an adventure through Africa aboard the Rovos Rail, and more.
