Celebrity Xperience: Small-ship sailings to the Galapagos

Have you sailed on this ship? The following information was curated by Cruiseable.


Celebrity Xperience joined the Celebrity Cruises fleet in March 2017 after undergoing a top-to-bottom refurbishment. She now provides an array of all-inclusive cruises and a choice of all-inclusive vacations to the Galapagos.

The ship's itineraries offer guests an option of several pre- and post-cruise land experiences. With 24 stylish staterooms — each featuring an ocean view and detailed extras that make a big difference — you'll find it easy to unwind and explore.

The ship, formerly the Eclipse from Ocean Adventures, is a smaller alternative to Celebrity Xpedition, offering guests even more personal attention. The ship's capacity of just 48 passengers and active itineraries attract a younger, better educated demographic.

Where Celebrity Xperience sails

Celebrity Xperience offers 7-night, 10-night and 13-night cruises in and around the Galapagos Islands, throughout the year. In addition, Celebrity also offers Xperiential Galapagos packages, interactions with locals, multi-night hotel stays and a list of destinations in the region that includes Darwin Bay, Puerto Villamil, Black Turtle Cove, Wall of Tears and Chinese Hat Islet.
