Explora Journeys, MSC Group's new luxury lifestyle brand, has unveiled the design of its Owner's Residence on board EXPLORA I, the first of up to six luxury ships.
The Owner's Residence creates the largest living space on board, the brand says, featuring multiple harmonious spaces to relax, entertain and unwind while enjoying panoramic ocean views from the private outdoor terrace, extending over the full ship's width.
The space spans over 280 sqm (3,014 sq ft), comprising a spacious suite area of 155 sqm (1,668 sq ft) and a 125 sqm (1,345 sq ft) outdoor terrace, complete with an infinity whirlpool and a dining table for eight guests.
"Every aspect of the design of our Owner’s Residence reflects the meticulous curation of all details. We have partnered with renowned brands to provide an unparalleled experience for our guests. Sofas and chairs are by iconic design brands like Knoll and Molteni & C, outdoor furniture is from Manutti, sophisticated lighting solutions are designed by Astep and the luxurious double vanity bathroom is made of precious Calacatta marble. All these incredible details create an elegant, yet effortlessly relaxed European sense of luxury," said Jason Gelineau, head of product at Explora Journeys.
Guests staying in the Owner's Residence will enjoy dedicated private butler services by the Residence Manager, unpacking and packing services, itinerary and transport planning, as well as private in-suite dining.
They will also have unlimited priority reservations for all culinary venues and a complimentary treatment at Ocean Wellness - The Spa.
The Owner's Residence comes features and benefits, including a bespoke king-sized bed sleep system, a telescope, fine bed linens from Frette, extensive pillow selection, and a Dyson Supersonic hairdryer. Guests will also have access to a Technogym Bench and Technogym Case Kit, a private bar replenished according to their preferences, and an in-suite welcome bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2013.
Explora Journeys has prioritized sustainability and eco-friendly features, such as refillable bathroom amenities, an espresso machine with bio-degradable pods and a complimentary personal refillable water bottle for each guest have been incorporated into the in-suite offering.
In addition, guests staying in the Owner's Residence will enjoy roundtrip home to airport ground transfers, a complimentary pre or post-journey hotel night, and roundtrip transfers from/to hotel and port.
They will also have one private driver ashore subject to availability, and unlimited priority reservations for all culinary venues.
