Celebrity Expedition Cruises

Celebrity Cruises are well-known for their premium cruising proposition, but an expedition cruise with them is an experience like no other. Their state-of-the-art ships, Celebrity Xpedition® and Celebrity Flora℠ are intimate vessels that explore the Galapagos. Celebrity Xpedition® has been recently upgraded, and even more luxury has been added with a variety of inclusions and maintaining its authenticity. It is one of the most awarded ships to sail the Galapagos Islands.

Celebrity Flora℠ is the first of its kind to be designed and built specifically with the destination at its centre which is again, the captivating Galapagos Islands. The all-suite accommodations use natural and sustainable materials in them. The Dynamic Positioning System allows the ship to stay in position without requiring the use of sea damaging anchors. It really is a ship which doesn’t just take you to this stunning part of the world, it takes you to the heart of it.

Excursions, Entertainment and Activities

Your entertainment and activities throughout your expedition cruise will all centre around the incredible destination you’ll be exploring. Highlight of how you can pass your time are below:

  • Excursions – you’ll be taken to the heart of the places you visit with immersive excursions all included within your cruise. Seal spotting, volcanic walks, boat trips and so much more await you on your expedition cruise.
  • Discovery Lounge – when you’re not learning about the islands from the team of Naturalists, the Discovery Lounge is where you can socialise, unwind, and be entertained by performances and conversations with your crew and fellow explorers.
  • The Observatory – if you want to learn even more about the Galapagos head up to the Observatory, the stunning library dedicated to the Galapagos Islands, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s no better place to cosy up with a book and take in the views.
  • Stargazing - the starry night sky in the Galapagos is truly a sight you’ll remember forever and you’ll enjoy it more than ever at the Stargazing platform. Choose to listen to a guided explanation or simply marvel at the spectacle alone using the binoculars provided.
  • Novurania Yacht Tenders – custom built tenders will take you closer to your destinations in style. Stairs with a flush metal railing against the open aft ensures a seamless transition to the islands, making them that bit easier to explore. A hydraulic ramp also protects guests from as much of the elements as possible and can serve as a platform for snorkelling when needed to. Rubber grips mean you can hold on better in choppy water and there is more storage and seating space than standard tenders too. The tenders are pioneering in the region.

Enrichment Programmes

A unique luxury expedition cruise needs unique experiences and Celebrity offers them right to you.

  • Galapagos Glamping – a first at sea, is the first sunset-to-sunrise experience of its kind in the Galapagos Islands. An exclusive campfire-themed dinner with cocktails will delight you. You can stargaze at constellations in both hemispheres whilst sailing the equator, guided by an expert to inform you. You can even transform your cabana into a double bed and spend the night sleeping under the starry night sky before enjoying a private breakfast at dawn starting the next day of your adventures.
  • Frost Science – Celebrity worked in collaboration with Miami’s Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science to produce videos that educate guests about the Galapagos making it a more immersive experience. The videos can be watched at your leisure in the bars or in your suite and are fun and engaging. In-depth 30-minute “TED” type lectures and 5-minute short videos make up the library and focus on topics that help to prepare guests for the next adventure on the islands.
  • EarthEcho – Celebrity have partnered with EarthEcho International, a non-profit organisation founded by Philippe Cousteau. Jr., to introduce a comprehensive and customised youth program designed to inspire and empower environmental advocates in the next generation and encourage youngsters to start work not to ensure a sustainable future. They engage with youth and the local community to support the protection and enhancement of the treasured ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands, and explore opportunities to expand the partnership to other regions of the world.

Sustainability

As the first ship ever designed for a destination, Celebrity ensured Celebrity Flora had the latest technology and state-of-the-art features to be as environmentally safe and eco-friendly as possible. The ship can stay on location without anchors thanks to the Dynamic Positioning System and also has solar panels to reduce the amount of fossil fuels used. Fresh water is also created out of sea water via a reverse osmosis system and provides the ship with all its water needs.

Celebrity takes its environmental responsibility very seriously and employs techniques across the whole fleet to help conserve the oceans.
