“In summer 2024 discerning travellers will now have the opportunity to travel on our two ships on carefully created and combinable itineraries both in the Western and Eastern Mediterranean, embarking from easy access ports and uncovering hidden gems in lesser traveled destinations,” he added.

The 461-stateroom ship will visit destinations such as Portofino, Porto Cervo, St-Tropez, Calvi, Mahon and Monte Carlo. Itineraries range from seven to 21 nights.

EXPLORA II follows the arrival of EXPLORA I which entered service in August 2023. The company is set to add four additional luxury vessels by 2028.
