The luxury cruise program has clearly resonated with travelers, but Inspirato is neither a massive cruise line nor a boutique cruise brand.

Instead, the company specializes in a travel subscription program that gives its members access to luxury vacation homes, hotels, events, and trips around the world, including some aboard cruise ships.

Since Inspirato isn’t a cruise brand, the company will partner with different operators like Uniworld Boutique River Cruises and Emerald Cruises to charter and operate the ships.

And travelers are clearly excited: Within the first day of the program’s unveil, the Greece and Egypt itineraries both sold out “immediately,” according to the company.
