Celebrity Xpedition

A Galapagos cruise onboard Celebrity Xpedition offers an exciting and intriguing cruise holiday island hopping one of the world’s top bucket-list destinations. Small enough to go where other cruise ships can’t, Celebrity Cruises’ Xpedition is the perfect way to see the iconic Galapagos Islands’ endemic species of flora and fauna. Enchanting explorers and researchers for years, the Galapagos Islands are a nature lover’s paradise and one of the only places in the world where the local animals seamlessly interact with and belong to the local community. Don't be surprised to see the friendly fur seal lounging on the street or posing for photos while the hungry pelicans openly try to steal fresh catch from the fishmongers. Fans of wildlife research will love the Charles Darwin Research Centre and learning of his notable time spent on the islands.

Along with all-new ship Celebrity Flora and the catamaran - Celebrity Xploration - a Celebrity cruise on Xpedition is a great way to see this ultimate bucket-list destination. Sail through the fabled waters surrounding the Galapagos Islands and cruise with Celebrity Xpedition to experience a sense of intimacy that can only be achieved onboard a smaller ship. Accommodating just 48 guests and with a staff to guest ratio of around 1:2, Celebrity Xpedition provides a comfortable and intimate sailing experience that is half intrepid expedition, half luxury getaway cruise.

What’s more, this Galapagos adventure with Celebrity Xpedition can also be incorporated into a wider cruise and stay package such as an extension to wondrous Machu Picchu. Celebrity Xpedition is all inclusive with drinks, meals, shore excursions, snorkelling equipment, national park entrance fees, all included to name but a few.

Ship Facilities

There are two dining venues when cruising with Celebrity Xpedition, with all meals and drinks included:

  • Beagles Buffet and Grill- enjoy your meal outside while admiring the awe-inspiring views as the chefs cook up deliciously-grilled, locally-sourced fish and vegetables right before your eyes.
  • Darwin’s Restaurant- the main dining room onboard the ship, here guests can enjoy fresh food with flexible seating so guests can mix and mingle.
  • Room Service- available 24 hours a day for those who just don’t feel like leaving their cabin.

While the main draw of a cruise with Celebrity Xpedition is the incredible opportunity to discover the Galapagos Islands, this doesn’t have to mean that evenings aren’t just as memorable. After a busy day exploring you can relax with a drink in hand and exchange stories of the day, and listen to the Galapagos National Park naturalists give you information on the next day’s islands with everything you can see & do. Alternatively, for something a little more lively, head to the Discovery Lounge and take in some live music, perhaps even showing off your moves on the dance floor.

Recreation

With pleasant weather in the Galapagos’ year round, guests have access to snorkelling gear and trips out on Zodiacs to get up close and personal to the islands’ unique wildlife. This is even further enriched by certified expert naturalists giving fascinating talks in the Darwin Lounge before heading out for the day’s nature-filled adventure.

Spa and Fitness

Despite Celebrity Xpedition’s relatively small size in comparison to other ships in the Celebrity fleet, onboard guests will find a fitness room, spa with sauna and bookable treatments, and a hot tub on the sun deck.

Customer reviews for Celebrity Xpedition

We have just returned from a 7 night cruise on Celebrity Xpedition and how fantastic it was! This is a superb ship but the most impressive aspect of our cruise was the sheer efficiency friendliness and knowledge of the ship's crew. From the moment we stepped on board we were looked after, entertained and educated. Our cabin was comfortable the food was excellent and varied and when we went ashore our safety was paramount. The Galapagos Islands are truly spectacular, the animals didn't disappoint and we learnt so much about them from the naturalists who are so knowledgable and share this with enthusiasm and humour. I cannot think of a negative about my Galapagos experience on Celebrity Xpedition
