Celebrity Xpedition

The Galapagos vessel of renowned cruise group Celebrity was always going to be an impressive, luxurious ship, and as such the Celebrity Xpedition boat certainly does not disappoint. Although small compared to the group’s other cruises around the world, the Xpedition is one of the Galapagos’ larger vessels. With capacity for up to 100 guests, multiple drinking and dining haunts, a sundeck with Jacuzzi and even a gym and massage room, there are plenty of distractions when you’re not out exploring the archipelago on exciting excursions in style.

TWICE-DAILY ACTIVITIES IN THE GALAPAGOS

Celebrity Xpedition prides itself on providing fantastic tours of the Galapagos, taking place twice a day and always in the presence of an expert naturalist guide. To ensure that there is something to suit everyone’s tastes and abilities, excursions range from relaxed strolls to more challenging treks, gentle Zodiac rides to enthralling snorkeling experiences. There’s always an opportunity to catch sight (and even get up close to) some of the islands’ most extraordinary wildlife, leaving each and every visitor captivated by this special place. What’s more, naturalist seminars are held daily to keep you informed about the wildlife and changing environment of the Galapagos.

ALL-INCLUSIVE, HASSLE-FREE

For peace of mind, the Celebrity Xpedition offers a convenient all-inclusive policy. This means that meals and drinks can be enjoyed throughout the day and evening at either the Darwin Restaurant, Blue Finch Bar, Discover Lounge or Beagle Grill; even room service is complimentary. All your excursions are included as part of the package, along with necessary equipment, and so are the tips, national park entrance fees and onboard Wi-Fi. This ensures that your Galapagos cruise is hassle-free, leaving you to think about nothing else but the wildlife encounters and luxurious experiences to be had on such a special special trip.
