Celebrity Xperience: Small-ship sailings to the Galapagos
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.
What's included in your fare
Celebrity promises that Xpedition will offer "excellent service and food, intimate setting for exotic voyages, together with many of the amenities found on larger ships." Celebrity Xperience cruise fares include beer, liquor, soft drinks, house wine and all gratuities and shore excursions.
Dining options feature a main dining room with elegant yet casual ambience. Guests can also enjoy an Early Riser continental breakfast and lunch under the open air shade canopy including specialty drinks and music. On special nights, they can choose Dinner Under the Stars.
Activities on board
The Lounge Bar, on the Weather Deck, is where passengers get daily briefings, lectures, movies, entertainment and full bar service. The Reception area is a gathering place before dinnertime or prior to going ashore. On the Boat Deck, the library features a variety of books, table games and video games. The outdoor relaxation area offers a shade canopy, lounge chairs and a whirlpool. There are also two exercise bikes.
Celebrity Xperience has 24 spacious, all ocean view, fully air-conditioned staterooms and four decks. All amenities offer an intimate atmosphere and all the gear you'll need, such as wetsuits, snorkeling equipment and binoculars, included to help guests fully experience the most amazing archipelago in the world.
