Celebrity FloraSM recently launched in the Galapagos Islands with an official naming ceremony. Former World Wildlife Fund International President and Flora Godmother, Yolanda Kakabadse, joined the festivities to bless the ship and all who sail on her. Designed in the spirit of on-going innovation in this region, our new ship furthers environmental initiatives that include protecting the islands and the surrounding pristine waters. With natural materials inspired by the islands and state-of-the-art technology, Celebrity Flora is one of the most eco-friendly ships sailing in the archipelago. Every space, including the all-suites accommodations, features outward facing design for continuous stunning views of the Galapagos Islands at every turn.
In our commitment to the environment and the ecosystem, we’ve partnered with the world-renowned Philip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Miami, to produce S.T.E.M. at Sea, a series of onboard activities dedicated to environmental science. Topics include plastic pollution, the world of plankton, and more. These exclusive activities are designed to engage, entertain, and educate in ways that will keep you and your family interested long after your vacation is over.
These enriching programs are currently available on Celebrity Equinox.
Zenith member Andy Geller recently embarked on a 2-week vacation aboard the newly revolutionized Celebrity EquinoxSM with his mother, Millie. As a seasoned traveler, Andy has been cruising for over 25 years, and actually introduced his parents to the world of cruising many years ago. He first cruised with Celebrity 22 years ago on Celebrity Mercury.
What keeps Andy sailing with Celebrity? “It’s Celebrity’s hospitality for sure. “Their Officers & Crew are the best at Sea !” . Once I get on board, I always say ‘It’s great to be home again’. “
And, this time around he experienced a Celebrity cruise like never before. It was Andy’s first time on Celebrity Equinox since its revolution in March. According to Andy, it did not disappoint. “The remodeled Equinox was absolutely stunning. I stayed in a concierge room this sailing, and loved all the upgrades, especially the bed, bedding and television. The new Retreat Lounge was also amazing – a brighter and very warm atmosphere.”
Andy was also able to get a spot at Daniel Boulud’s Chef’s Table while onboard. “This meal was an absolute treat and the best I’ve ever experienced,” Andy said. The evening began at Equinox’s new bar, Craft Social. “We were greeted with Champagne and small bites by the head chef and maître d' of Murano. “We then had two galley tours and since this was during dinner prep, it was action-packed!” Dinner was served at the private table in Murano and consisted of a 5-course meal designed by the master himself, Chef Daniel Boulud. Andy continued, “My personal favorite was the fourth course, duo of beef filet and short rib.”
Be on the lookout for Andy and Millie on your next cruise and be sure to say hello!
