Celebrity Cruises’ 2021 Galápagos sailings featuring the purpose-built Celebrity Flora, debuting this spring, and the modernized Celebrity Xpedition.

The line has been sailing to the Galápagos since 2004.

'All this time in the destination allows us to perfect every detail of the vacation experience and offer our guests a one-of-a-kind, seamless and completely unforgettable vacation,' Celebrity president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said.

Celebrity Flora

With its all-suite accommodations, the 100-passenger Celebrity Flora will be one of the most energy-efficient ships of its size in the protected archipelago. The ship will offer seamless sea-to-shore transportation with innovative Novurania Yacht Tenders, and a top deck glamping experience. Outward-facing design gives 360-degree views of the islands, while personal suite attendants, new dining venues, an open-air stargazing platform and expert-led ecological seminars elevate Galápagos travel offerings.

Revitalized Celebrity Xpedition

Following its seven-day revitalization in September 2018, Celebrity Xpedition debuted with an array of enhancements across the 100-passenger mega-yacht, from redecorated staterooms, lounges and restaurants to faster and more reliable Wi-Fi.

This June, Celebrity Xpedition will debut enhanced suite services and amenities coinciding with the arrival of Celebrity Flora. Celebrity Xpedition suite passengers will be geared up with marine binoculars to use on their cruise, as well as premium backpacks and rain ponchos that they can take home. Stateroom attendants can help with packing and unpacking and provide full in-suite dinner service. Other additions include upgraded premium bathrobes and luxurious bath products from Ecuador.

Ten-, 11- and 16-night packages

Both Celebrity Xpedition and Celebrity Flora offer 10-, 11- and 16-night packages that feature pre- or post-cruise expeditions to bucket-list destinations and including one of two seven-night Inner or Outer Loop Itineraries, both sailing from Baltra in the Galápagos.
