MSC Group’s new cruise line, Explora Journeys, has announced that it will be setting sail in Alaska in 2024.
The luxury line’s CEO Michael Ungerer said “Explora Journeys’ Alaskan experience will inspire and excite in equal measure, especially for those who are curious for remarkable exploration. Blending luxury and adventure from soaring mountains, Arctic tundra, giant rivers, fjords, and glaciers, to deep, frozen oceans and vibrant wildlife, Explora Journeys will ensure a one-of-a kind experience.”
Both on the ship and ashore, passengers will have the opportunity to enjoy authentic Alaskan cuisine featuring locally-sourced seafood, game, and the freshest produce. Local favorites such as Coho salmon and Dungeness crab will be served, complemented with a beer or cider from one of Alaska’s renowned microbreweries.
