A Galapagos Islands cruise onboard Celebrity Xpedition offers an exciting and intriguing island hopping cruise holiday. 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, whilst the hungry pelicans openly try to steal fresh catch from the fishmonger. 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 Flora , a Celebrity cruise on Celebrity 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 100 guests and with a staff/guest ration over 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 stopping off at legendary Machu Picchu.
