In 2018, we’ll see the launch of the newest addition to the fleet, and we’re pretty proud of her. After our very own TUI Discovery scooped the Best New Cruise Ship award at the Editors’ Picks last year, and with her sister ship, TUI Discovery 2, setting sail in May, we’re sticking with our tried-and-tested formula – with more than a handful of swish extras, too.
TUI Explorer’s going to be All Inclusive as standard, so your only problem’s going to be picking which of the 10 eateries or 10 bars you fancy. We’re bringing back firm favourites – Surf & Turf, Kora La and the Snack Shack – as well as adding in some new faces. The clue is in the name at Umi Sushi and the Hot Stone Grill, and a new dining area, The Mediterranean, will cover off pizza and tapas. For sweet teeth, Scoops ice cream stall is the go-to. At sundown, Indigo will steal the show – it’s in a first-rate spot at the very top of the ship, and will team ocean views with a casino and a nightclub.
As unwinding’s the name of the game on holiday, we’ve also upped the ante in the spa department. It’ll have 11 different areas, including The Veranda – an adults-only sunbathing spot with daybeds. Plus, we’ve thrown in a Finnish sauna with panoramic windows, luxury treatment rooms, and a space reserved for couples.
Cabin-wise, we’ve pulled out plenty of stops. There’ll be 14 family-sized balcony cabins, with room for up to five people to bed down, and they’ll all measure 20 square metres. Elsewhere, TUI Explorer’s standard cabins are anything but. There’ll be more outside space on the balconies, and the inside cabins are the largest in the fleet, boasting 16 square metres each.
TUI Explorer’s setting up shop in Palma, Majorca, and for starters, will be heading off on a trip around the Western Mediterranean, taking in the likes of Florence, Barcelona and Lisbon. Here’s the best bit – the first four itineraries will be going on sale next month, so you’ve got barely any time to wait.
