Celebrity Xpedition: For nature lovers & adventurous spirits

Have you sailed on Celebrity Xpedition? We'd love to hear your take and see your photos. The following information was curated by Cruiseable.

Snapshot

Since 2004, Celebrity Xpedition — the expedition ship in the Celebrity Cruises fleet — has been transporting guests around the Galapagos Islands. Designed not just for travel, but for exploration, the 98-guest Xpedition is the sole ship of her class and is designed to sail the pristine environments surrounding the Galapagos Islands. Passengers will encounter personalized service, innovative cuisine, and comfortable staterooms. 

One of the best features of cruising on the 296-foot vessel is the immersive nature of the experience. From the knowledgeable crew to the Galapagos National Park-certified onboard naturalists, you will learn all about the delicate archipelago and its natural and evolutionary significance. Land exploration tours are available for all types of guests who either want hardcore adventure or to soak in their environs at a more leisurely pace that does not require excess physical stamina.

Who will like sailing on Celebrity Xpedition

Celebrity Xpedition is similar to adventure tour companies offering cruises around the Galapagos Islands. The main difference is her association with Celebrity Cruises, which allows guests to explore in style.

Because this is an active cruise, it might be better suited for people who don't have medical limitations that restrict their ability to walk on uneven surfaces.

Where Celebrity Xpedition sails

Home port: Baltra, Galapagos

Destinations: The Celebrity Xpedition is a Galapagos-based ship, varying the routes in and around the Galapagos Islands. For example, a 7-night cruise visits a dozen locations including Cormorant Point, with its large flamingo lagoon, and Punta Suarez on Hood Island, known for marine iguanas and sea lions.

Cruises on this ship

Adventure travelers wanted

Sailing around the Galapagos Islands is a trip of a lifetime, and sailing on Celebrity Cruises Xpedition in the Galapagos is designed to bring together adventure cruising with a touch of luxury. The ship cruises slowly around this unique volcanic archipelago and maximum effort is put into educating passengers on the history, ecology, marine biology, and evolution of the islands. You actually might just feel like Charles Darwin while exploring the region. 

Dining

There are two restaurants to enjoy: The Beagle Grill, named after Darwin's ship, and  Darwin's Restaurant, a five-star restaurant located on the Marina Deck. Umbrella drinks are served at the Blue Finch Bar and the Discovery Lounge is the place to unwind in front of the vista.

Activities

Be ready for a number of exhilarating excursions and a wide variety of onboard activities to keep you busy. If your priority is to learn as much as possible about the area, then you're in luck: The interactive immersion program begins with the ship's chief naturalist and cruise director who hold briefings outlining each day's excursion. Everyday ashore brings a new adventure with a chance for wildlife encounters. If you prefer to take a less immersive approach to your cruise vacation, then kick back and enjoy the spa.
