Evolving your idea of a Galapagos Vacation
The Galapagos Islands is an archipelago off the coast of Ecuador that is like nowhere else on earth. Its calm waters have created a haven for diverse flora and fauna.
The Most Luxurious Ship in the Galapagos
Combining luxury with adventure, there is no better ship for exploring the Galapagos than Celebrity Flora, a brand new ship from Celebrity Cruises that has been specifically designed for the Galapagos Islands.
Celebrity Flora provides a small-ship cruising experience similar to a private yacht, but with all the 5-star service, gourmet meals, luxurious suites and fabulous lounges you have come to expect from a luxury cruise.
Celebrity Flora is built with an outward facing design to maximize your enjoyment of the outdoor experience. When you are not enjoying the panoramic views from the sun deck or al fresco dining area, you can enjoy peaceful views from the solitude of your own veranda which blurs the line between outdoor and indoor living.
Suites on Celebrity Flora also all come with personal suite attendants, oversized bathrooms and décor that is sustainable and regionally inspired.
Conservation Where it Counts
Visiting the Galapagos will inspire a fierce desire to preserving this natural wonderland. Celebrity Cruises feels the same way; the Galapagos’ delicate ecosystem was at the forefront of the ship planning process.
Celebrity Flora is designed to leave a minimal footprint on the environment utilizing an anchorless technology, a system to convert seawater into fresh water, and a focus on reducing waste through recycling and reuse, as well as providing an in-room water filtration system to reduce plastic bottle waste.
In-Depth Exploration and Animal Encounters
You will no doubt want to experience and learn as much as possible about the Galapagos Islands while there. Celebrity Cruises makes this easy to accomplish. The Marina on Celebrity Flora provides ease of access to the Galapagos Islands. It accommodates three Zodiacs, agile inflatable boats that are perfect for quickly disembarking and exploring the islands; getting up close to the animals, birds and reptiles.
The island is home to unique species including the huge Galapagos tortoises and enthralling marine iguanas, both of which are endemic to the islands. Also endemic are the birds nicknamed Darwin’s finches since they helped Charles Darwin develop his theory on evolution while he was in the Galapagos. You will also have the chance to swim alongside frolicking seals.
Off the ship, you will be accompanied by a certified Galapagos naturalist who will regale you with interesting facts and history about what you are seeing. Back on board, you can attend presentations about the Galapagos in the ship’s Discovery Lounge and dine with the ship’s naturalist, so you become an expert on the islands yourself.
If you care about the environment, love luxurious vacations and want an off-the-beaten-path adventure you will never forget, a Galapagos Islands cruise on Celebrity Flora is just the vacation you are looking for.
