The protected nature of the Galapagos Islands and the small harbours which dot the coasts mean that access to the islands is restricted. To help protect the archipelago, only a limited number of visitors are allowed on the islands at any one time, and they must be accompanied by a licensed guide. This means that very few cruise ships can take you to the heart of the Galapagos Islands, in fact only three from the major cruise lines can access this amazing part of the world.
Until recently, the Celebrity Xpedition was the only cruise ship from a major line visiting the Galapagos Islands, transporting up to 100 guests at a time in absolute luxury to the stunning archipelago. Despite being smaller than most cruise liners, the specially-designed ship boasts an array of on-board features including the Blue Finch Bar positioned on the Panorama Deck and the Discovery Lounge – a charming public area which plays host to lectures from expert naturalists.
And after a day exploring the natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands, the hot tubs on the Sunrise Deck offer the perfect retreat for a little relaxation.
The smallest ship in the Celebrity Cruises fleet with capacity for just 16 people, the Celebrity Xploration can take you deeper into the mythical Galapagos Islands than any other cruise ship. Launched in March 2017, the small size of the ship promises an intimate experience unmatched by larger ships – so in between stops on the Galapagos Islands, you’ll be treated the highest standard of personal service.
And if the wildlife found on the Galapagos Islands whets your appetite for animal spotting, the Celebrity Xploration’s Sun Deck provides the perfect spot for whale watching.
Offering a selection of 7, 10 and 13-night cruises, the Celebrity Xperience has been designed to offer a seamless Galapagos Islands adventure. The beauty of the surrounding nature is allowed to flow through the ship, so you can trace every step taken by Charles Darwin. From the outdoor dining venue, Al Fresco, to the luxury Sun Deck, Celebrity Xperience provides you with an unobstructed Galapagos Islands adventure.
Thanks to the small 48-person capacity of the ship, holidaying aboard the Celebrity Xperience means you’ll be able to enjoy wonderfully personable and dedicated service every day during your Galapagos Islands cruise holiday.
