Celebrity Xpedition

Ship Rating:


The Celebrity Xpedition is the highest rated ship in the Galapagos Islands, offering excellent food and service and an intimate setting for its exotic voyages, with many of the amenities usually found on larger ships. All accommodations are oceanview, and dining options include the main dining room, Darwin's Restaurant, which has an elegant yet casual atmosphere, and the outdoor Beagle Grill. Guests can enjoy a drink while taking in the views at the Blue Finch Bar. The Discovery Lounge is home to a small library with information on the Galapagos Islands and a small stage for lectures and presentations given by naturalists who will accompany you during your voyage. When it's time to unwind, there's a spa, sauna, hot tub and sunning area located on the Sunrise Deck.

Unlike other Celebrity ships, the cruise fare for Celebrity Xpedition includes soft drinks, beer, house wine and liquor, all shore excursions and gratuities for the onboard staff. The vessel is consistently honored as the most eco-friendly ship in the Galapagos, and its features include the most advanced wastewater treatment system in the islands, an onboard desalination system covering the freshwater needs of the ship (other than drinking water, which is bottled), and dedicated recycling room and staff. The company provides financial support to numerous local conservation projects, education and habitat restoration.
