Galapagos Islands

Xpedition visits isla espanola

The Galapagos Islands is a destination of rugged beauty and evolutionary wonder. With the arrival of the revolutionary ship Celebrity Flora, your experience in this unspoiled corner of the world will be anything but primitive.

Celebrity Flora is the first ship of its kind designed and built specifically for the Galapagos Islands. The ship features an innovative outward-facing design that makes the islands the center of attention to create a definite connection between guests, the ocean and the stunning islands.

Celebrity Flora offers the most luxuri¬ous accommodations in the Galapagos Islands. In fact, every stateroom on board is a suite with incredible design features, including full room automation. With just the touch of a button, guests can adjust lighting, air conditioning, curtains and even the Infinite Veranda. The cruise includes in¬dulgent services and amenities, including Personal Suite Attendants who will help you unpack—and pack again. Whether travelling your voyage is on Celebrity’s newest ship, Flora, or the newly remodeled Xpedition with only 48 guests, or Xploration, a catamaran for 16 guests that is able to access hidden gems of the islands, your voyage will be unforgettable

Thanks to Celebrity’s passionate focus on protecting the environment, Celebrity Flora was built with every state-of-the-art option and the latest technology including solar panels for supplemental electricity, an anchorless dynamic positioning system to help protect the seabed below, a reverse osmosis water system to sustain water needs on board and silicone paint to glide with less fuel – to make her one of the most eco-friendly and environmentally safe ships on the planet.

Celebrity Cruises is also passionate about leaving the world a better place. Since 2014, they have worked in collaboration with local organizations, the Galapagos National Park, naturalists and guests to introduce more than 50,000 plants in support of the Scalesia reforestation effort.

Celebrity considered virtually everything you might need to relax and enjoy these legendary islands making your trip as convenient, relaxing and memo¬rable as possible. From pre- and post-cruise luxury accommo¬dations and transfers down to the gratuities, it is all included. You will enjoy delicious meals made fresh from locally sourced ingredients (menus crafted by a Michelin-starred chef), bever¬ages (including spirits and wine) and shore excursions (each led by a Galapagos National Park certified naturalist). Travelers can explore further with additional South American packages, includ¬ing pre- or post-cruise visits to Quito, Cuzco and Machu Picchu.

Celebrity Flora also recreates the nostalgia of camping, now in stylish cabanas atop the ship that creates the experience Celebrity calls Galapagos Glamping. Sip on campfire-inspired cocktails, savor delicious meals and taste wines paired perfectly for “roughing it.” Local naturalists lead stargazing at night, and when the sun rises again, campers wake to the wonderful aromas of a stellar breakfast- it is unlike any other camping experience.

On your journey to the Galapagos, you will be amazed by breathtaking beauty and unique wildlife, including 100-year-old Galapagos giant tortoises, free-diving marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies and a host of exotic fauna found nowhere else on earth.

Step aboard the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruises where a wealth of unparalleled experiences awaits you.
