Explora Journeys, the luxury cruise line from MSC Group that is scheduled to launch this July, has unveiled a third group travel program.
A Journey Together Gatherings group is created when a group is traveling together in a minimum of three suites (maximum of four), with one of the suites required to be an Ocean Penthouse or Ocean Residence. Benefits for the group include one under-18 passenger in each suite sailing free, as well as complimentary transfers to the ship for all guests booked in the Journey Together Gatherings Group.

The program, along with Journey Together and Journey Together+ will be headed by newly appointed Charter and Journey Together Lead, Cindi Occhuizzo. She has more than 30 years of experience in the luxury travel industry having previously spent time at Kuoni, Disney Cruise Line and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. She will be supported by newly appointed Journey Together and Charter Operations Expert Vilma Moutsatsos.
"I am delighted to welcome Cindi and Vilma to our global charters and incentives team and I know they will be great assets for us in this important market," said Chris Austin, chief sales officer at Explora Journeys. "They will work closely with the MICE market as we roll out our Journey Together programs to our luxury travelers. Designing our Journey Together Gatherings program has been a highly collaborative process with the travel advisor community. We are proud to launch this program targeting gatherings of friends and multi-generational families."
