We know that although world-travelers have some things in common, there are all sorts of explorers. That’s exactly why we’ve expanded our vacations in the Galapagos Islands to provide even more comprehensive, all-inclusive packages you can find to satisfy every type of modern explorer.
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.
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!
Our eight day/seven night 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.
