Explore the Islands

Within this small archipelago, each of the Galapagos islands is uniquely diverse. Some have shorelines draped in mangroves, others are rugged volcanic outcrops jutting defiantly from the sea. You won’t see the same distribution of wildlife on any two islands, and each has its own history, both geologic and otherwise. See what’s in store on each of the exciting stops on your itinerary.

The Wildlife Of The Galapagos

Protecting the planet we love

We don’t just love visiting the Galapagos—we are passionate about preserving it. We’ve done so much to leave these islands virtually untouched that Ecuador’s Secretary of Tourism holds Celebrity Cruises® as the standard of excellence for reducing our carbon footprint. Your entire Galapagos experience practices the highest levels of environmental stewardship. The chocolate on your pillow is from a local company that sources its cacao from small local producers, the hull of your ship is painted with silicone to move her more efficiently, and we’ve helped local farmers and fishermen establish practices that deliver fresh, sustainable food to your plate on board. We’re committed to improving the quality of life for the residents of the Galapagos Islands and ensuring future generations get to experience this magical place just as you get to today.

What our guests are saying

Our cruise on the Celebrity Xpedition exceeded our expectations. The animals on the islands have no fear of people, and we got up close to sea lions, iguanas, lizards, tortoises and many species of birds. The naturalists were very knowledgeable, spoke excellent English, and were attentive to the needs of their group. The Galapagos Islands are an incredible destination, and Celebrity did an outstanding job of making sure we had a good time while we enjoyed them. Our visit to the Galapagos Islands was a fantastic experience.

My family and I cruised the Galapagos on Celebrity's Xpedition ship and it was incredible. Up front I would say that this is NOT your typical cruise and best for those who are active and want to see all the islands have to offer. The staff onboard the ship were the best we've had on a total of 10 other Celebrity cruises, they are available 24/7 and will fulfill almost any request. The islands are amazing and you will never get this close to wildlife anywhere! Overall, I would highly recommend both cruising the Galapagos and cruising with the Celebrity Xpedition. Truly exceptional experience and service!

The experience is one of those events that is life changing. Each island offers its own special personality and wildlife. The staff and the naturalists are top shelf. A naturalist must accompany guests on the islands, and each and every one is well educated and versed on the science of the Galapagos, in addition, all are Ecuadorean and offer much information on the country and culture. The food on board is wonderful, all meals are included in the ticket price, including the bar. Because of the small passenger list, it allows guests to get to know one another. Life long friends were made on our cruise. If I could buy a ticket tomorrow, I would be on this cruise again in a heartbeat.

The Celebrity Xpedition Galapagos cruise was a great adventure that exceeded our expectations in so many ways. When they advertise that it’s all inclusive they really mean it.

If this isn't on your bucket list, add the Galapagos today and I don't see how anybody could handle making that check mark any better than the Xpedition.

Each day we thought it was the "best day" and then the next day was even better.
Everything is meticulously well organized, and works like clockwork
