MIAMI - Celebrity Cruises announced its Summer 2021 return to sailing the breath-taking Galapagos Islands on one of the new-luxury brand’s three stunning ships that offer itineraries in this unique part of the world.
Beginning July 4, the luxurious, state-of-the-art mega yacht, Celebrity Flora, will be the first to resume sailing the extraordinary archipelago, followed by the award-winning Celebrity Xpedition and intimate 16-passenger Celebrity Xploration on July 24, and September 18, respectively.
All ships will sail with vaccinated crew and will be available to vaccinated adult guests and children under the age of 18 with a negative PCR test result. In addition, all guests should review and comply with local requirements for entry to Ecuador and the Galapagos.
For a limited time, Celebrity is also including airfare in the purchase of a Galapagos vacation package, carefully curated 7-night Celebrity Cruises itineraries combined with all-inclusive land-based accommodations and activities to create 10- to 16-night unforgettable vacation experiences. The offer is valid for roundtrip economy or business class airfares departing from US or Canadian gateways and valued at up to $750 per person including air taxes and fees on applicable vacation packages on sail dates departing between July 3, 2021 - December 31, 2023. Flights must be booked via Flights by Celebrity by June 30, 2021.
Each ship offers a unique experience for this must-see location. For those looking to explore the Galapagos’ spectacular wonders in ultimate luxury, Celebrity Flora, a mega-yacht built specifically to navigate the waters of this natural paradise, is ideal. Inspired by the islands and built with natural materials, including the latest environmental technologies, the ship merges seamlessly with the surroundings. And, to fully immerse travellers in this extraordinary landscape, certified naturalists from the Galápagos National Park are on board to guide the journey.
Celebrity Xpedition and Celebrity Xploration will both equally explore the Galapagos with Northern and Southern Loop itineraries, while offering the ultimate individual indulgences.
In this extraordinary destination, every island offers its own unique experiences, from hiking otherworldly volcanic landscapes to snorkelling alongside sea turtles in their natural habitat.
Guests can also partake in twice-daily shore excursions guided by Galapagos National Park certified naturalists or stay onboard to relax and be treated to locally-sourced cuisine crafted by a Michelin-starred chef.
From the history and culture of Quito, to the charm and beauty of Lima, to the historical significance of the extraordinary flora and fauna visible everywhere, guests can check multiple items off their bucket list with Celebrity Cruises’ sailings to the spectacular Galapagos Islands.
As with all Celebrity Cruises sailings, everything has been thought of for guests including unlimited Wi-Fi, drinks, and tips; and vacation packages add luxury hotel stays and flights between Ecuador and the islands.
