Back

Keeping our oceans clean doesn't just make good business sense. It's critical to the future of our planet. And you don't have to look far to find examples of our efforts on our ships.

Aboard the Celebrity Xpedition®, we've planned our entire Celebrity Galapagos experience in conjunction with the Galapagos National Park. This journey follows strict environmental guidelines, and our naturalist guides are certified by the Galapagos National Park. We've also established the Galapagos Fund, an onboard conservation program that gives guests an opportunity to participate in the ongoing conservation of the islands. The Program draws on Celebrity Xpedition guest donations, totaling approximately $150,000 annually, which is matched by Celebrity with cruise credits. Donations to this fund are used exclusively to benefit charitable organizations in the Galapagos Islands. We invite you to read more about our environmental stewardship efforts below.
