Celebrity’s new-luxury mega yacht offers thoughtfully curated experiences to one of the most biodiverse regions in the world.
MIAMI – Travelers who have waited more than 15 months to experience the wonders of the world set sail in the breath-taking Galapagos Islands aboard the luxurious, state-of-the-art mega yacht, Celebrity Flora. The first of the new-luxury brand's three ships to resume sailing the extraordinary archipelago, guests will be treated to a curated seven-night itinerary through a world unlike any other.
Guests can now explore the Galapagos’ spectacular wonders in ultimate luxury, aboard Celebrity Flora, a mega-yacht built specifically to navigate the waters of this natural paradise.
The sailing will be shortly followed by the award-winning Celebrity Xpedition on July 24 and the intimate 16-passenger Celebrity Xploration on September 18. They will both equally explore the Galapagos with Northern and Southern Loop itineraries, while offering ultimate individual indulgences.
"The Galapagos islands are a treasure and a destination that is incomparable to any other in the world. We couldn't be more excited to welcome guests aboard the most special ship in this region for the very special, bucket-list voyage they have been dreaming of for so many months," said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo.
Combining unparalleled luxury and specular vistas, Celebrity Flora was built specifically to navigate the waters of this natural paradise. Inspired by the islands and built with a variety of natural materials, along with the latest environmental technologies, the ship merges seamlessly with its surroundings. And, to fully immerse travellers in this extraordinary landscape, certified naturalists from the Galápagos National Park are on board to guide the journey.
In this extraordinary destination, unique experiences abound, 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.
Healthy at Sea
Celebrity Cruises has established new health and safety measures in accordance with guidance from public health authorities, government agencies, and its own team of health and safety experts to provide guests with the peace of mind to fully enjoy their voyage.
All Celebrity ships will sail with a vaccinated crew. In the Galapagos, U.S. guests ages 16 and older must be fully vaccinated and, as of August 1, 2021, all U.S. guests ages 12 and older must be fully vaccinated.
