Dream Cruises to a Bucket-List Destination

Apr 02, 2019


Perhaps the only thing more amazing and spectacular than the Galápagos Islands is when you journey there on a Celebrity Cruise.

For one thing, you’ll cruise with ultimate all-inclusive convenience – worry-free and well-planned, right down to the last detail. And you’ll do it on a pair of the most remarkable ships afloat – the state-of-the-art Celebrity Xpedition and the all-new, all-suite Celebrity Flora, the first ship of its kind designed and built specifically with the destination in mind – the captivating Galápagos Islands.

An irreplaceable ecosystem and living museum of natural history and its creatures, the Galápagos Islands are home to animals and plants found nowhere else on Earth – giant tortoises, free-diving marine iguanas, the beautiful and animated blue-footed boobies – and the source of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, it’s surely a “bucket list” destination. And as such, you probably don’t want to fill your head with logistics or details. Thankfully, no matter which stunning Celebrity vessel you choose for your Galápagos vacation, one of the best features is that they’re all-inclusive. All you have to think about is finally getting up-close and personal with an awesome array of wildlife.

Celebrity Xpedition

As its name states, this is an expedition ship; that is, smaller in size than your typical cruise ship, therefore more maneuverable and able to take passengers on much more intriguing journeys to hard-to-reach corners of the planet. But don’t get the idea that luxury is thrown overboard – on the contrary, Celebrity Xpedition carries only 100 passengers max, and is filled with deluxe indulgences, including room service, in-suite dining, massage services, complimentary plush bathrobes, a fitness room, and live music. In addition, there are nightly lectures presented by certified naturalists from Galápagos National Park, who are on board during your entire vacation.

Premium, Deluxe, and Outside Staterooms are incredibly spacious, and newly enhanced suites take the elegance a step beyond, with upscale amenities from private verandas, to pillow menus, to personal suite attendants.

Celebrity Flora

From the luxurious accommodations that incorporate sustainable, natural materials, to the innovative outward-facing design that makes the destination the center of attention, Celebrity Flora, the fleet’s newest ship, truly differentiates between merely visiting this incredible corner of the world – and really experiencing it.

The indoor and outdoor spaces on Celebrity Flora are large sanctuaries that showcase endless ocean views and the extraordinary Galápagos Islands. These spaces are also designed to educate, inform, and easily connect you to the naturalists, other guests, and the islands themselves.

Celebrity Flora offers the largest and most luxurious accommodations to the Galápagos Islands. In fact, every stateroom on board is a suite that includes an unrivaled array of design features, services, and amenities to spoil you. Full room automation lets you control everything with the touch of a button. Dine on delectable menus curated by a Michelin-starred chef, and allow your Personal Suite Attendant to help you unpack. The Galápagos Islands may be primitive, but Celebrity Flora is anything but.

A Range of Experiences

Both Celebrity Flora and Celebrity Xpedition offer two deluxe 7-night Galápagos cruises to choose from, with packages of 10, 11, or 16 nights also available. These all-inclusive vacation packages include pre-cruise and post-cruise adventures in Quito, Ecuador, Lima and Cuzco, Peru, plus the extraordinary Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.
