When Explora Journeys CEO Michael Ungerer shares a picture of the lobby in the cruise line’s first ship, he gets the same question over and over. “What hotel is that?'” he told USA TODAY in an interview.

That’s what the new luxury line from the MSC Group is going for. The brand will launch the first of six planned vessels, Explora I, in the summer of 2023, and is aiming to provide an intimate ocean cruising experience, more like a floating boutique resort than a traditional cruise ship.

That applies to the itineraries, which will take passengers places larger ships may not, as well as the accommodations, which consist of 461 suites designed to feel as homey as they do luxe. “Home away from home is a very overused phrase so we call it ‘Homes at Sea,'” Ungerer said.
