Replacing Celebrity Xperience and Xploration in 2019, Celebrity Flora is specially designed to give you the best in Galapagos cruising experiences, while having minimal impact on this stunning environment. With everything from solar panels and state-of–the-art water purifiers to a dynamic positioning system meaning no seabed destroying anchors are needed, Celebrity Flora helps to ensure that the Galapagos’ unique environment is preserved for generations to come. What's more, when it comes to the onboard experience, get ready to relax and unwind in preparation for the next day's adventures in the luxurious surroundings of the public spaces and cabins.
There are two dining venues to choose from onboard Celebrity Flora. Guests can either choose the Seaside Restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the Ocean Grill which gives you the chance to enjoy deliciously fresh and locally sourced seafood each day. Here you can dine under the stars and enjoy a view as fantastic as the cuisine. Of course, other smaller refreshments are always available, as is full 24 hour room service.
After a day exploring this astonishing destination, unwind in style during your evenings on Celebrity Flora. The Discovery Lounge is where you will find other guests sipping on a cocktail before or after dinner, with a pianist playing live in the background. To admire the amazing night sky, take your drink out onto the Stargazing platform where you can enjoy guided stargazing or simply marvel at the spectacle on your own with binoculars provided. For a more unique experience, guests can opt for the glamping experiencing. Start off the evening with an exclusive campfire-themed dinner, followed by guided stargazing and sleeping under the stars in a private cabana.
There are two main Celebrity Flora itineraries to choose from, the Inner Loop itinerary and Outer Loop option. Both stop at varying points throughout the Galapagos Islands and you have the choice from 7 to 15 nights. In addition, as part of your fly cruise, you can add a trip to Machu Picchu as the grand finale to your Celebrity Galapagos adventure.
There will be land excursions at awe-inspiring locations throughout the cruise with an expert guide. These passionate naturalists will show you the fantastic range of the archipelago’s landscapes and wildlife from marine iguanas to the birds that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution. There will be hikes and snorkelling sessions to observe the wondrous variety of species inhabiting the Galapagos and boat rides back and forth and to otherwise inaccessible locations in the trusty zodiacs.
The Discovery Lounge is the social centre of life aboard Celebrity Flora. Here you can mix and mingle with your fellow guests at the bar and take in the gorgeous scenery beyond. In addition, this lounge plays host to fascinating presentations and talks by expert naturalist guides to give you background information so you can fully appreciate this unique corner of the world.
If you want some peace and quiet, head up to the Observatory. From here, you have even more serene views and can pick out one of the books in the library dedicated to the Galapagos’ history and biodiversity. Meanwhile, when wanting to get out in the open, the Vista is where you can recharge your batteries with a dip in the soothing hot tub, lounge in the sun and sip a cocktail.
Due to the nature of expedition cruises aboard Celebrity Flora, there is no access for passengers with limited mobility. However, there are zodiacs to whisk you back and forth from the excursions on land and two pools to relax in as you take in the views from the deck. There is also unlimited Wi-Fi, with spa treatments available too.
