What facilities are on Celebrity Flora?
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, it is here you can attend the fascinating presentations and talks by the expert naturalist guides to really give you background information and 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.
Unfortunately, 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.
What itineraries and add-ons are available?
There are two main Celebrity Flora itinerates 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 Macchu Pichu as the grand finale to your Celebrity Galapagos adventure.
What excursions are available?
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.
