Explora Journeys announced its partnership with Steinway & Sons, the piano company known for handcrafting grand pianos since 1853.

“This exceptional partnership brings a unique opportunity to celebrate and share musical excellence with a trusted, legendary luxury brand that shares our passion for talent, and demonstrates our commitment to undeniable quality,” said Michael Ungerer, chief executive officer of Explora Journeys.

“With the pianos supplied by Steinway & Sons and an enrichment program bringing the finest musicians in the world to interact with our guests, we are thrilled to take this journey together.”

Starting with the summer of 2023, acclaimed and new pianists will entertain guests with live performances that reflect the regions through which the ship will sail aboard Explora I, according to a press release. 

Ben Steiner, chief executive officer of Steinway & Sons said: “From the very beginning, we realized that Explora Journeys were doing something very special and innovative in the luxury travel space, much in the way that we have innovated in the piano world with Spirio. We felt an instant synergy between our companies due to our shared vision of excellence, and the more I see of Explora Journeys and their incredible ships, the more impressed I have become.”

Three Steinway Spirio piano players will be onboard each of Explora Journeys’ ships. 

A Celebratory Journey from Québec to New York City is scheduled for October 3, 2023 and will be joined by four Steinway Artists. The ship will call at La Baie (Saguenay), Baie-Comeau, Havre-Saint-Pierre, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and Halifax, before arriving in New York, on October 13. 

Upon the ship’s arrival in New York, a morning VIP tour of the legendary Steinway workshops will be hosted which will give the guests a glimpse of the craftsmanship.
