MIAMI – November 7, 2016 – Magnificent views, pristine environments and pre-historic iguanas and blue-footed boobies are just a few things you’ll find when sailing the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruises. Bookable now for sailings beginning March 25, 2017, adventure seekers will be able to sail onboard the beautiful Celebrity Xploration, experiencing the Galapagos Islands through a modern luxury lens. Following its recent upgrade, which was completed on Oct. 16, 2016, the state-of-the-art, 16-guest intimate catamaran emerged from drydock equipped with Celebrity’s signature services and amenities and will offer two alternating, unique itineraries. This is the Celebrity Distinction.
Guests can now select accommodations in one of the beautiful, catamaran-style ship’s eight luxurious staterooms and junior suites; each offering memorable views as well as upgraded premium mattresses and pillows, plush bedding, LCD TVs and internet service. Newly upgraded public areas include a vast, refreshed bar in the Al Fresco outdoor grill area; modernized, sophisticated dining room; climate controlled wine storage for each varietal; revitalized sun deck; and renovated main lounge and boutique area featuring two 65-inch TVs.
“A distinct unparalleled, all-inclusive experience like the Galapagos journey warrants a uniquely intimate ship, and that’s Celebrity Xploration. The ship’s design and layout highlights stunning views, and while our guests are taking in those breathtaking views, they will also enjoy a best-in-class, modern luxury experience,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “This ship is also perfect for multi-generational families or those looking to charter a sailing for a life changing vacation.”
Explore the natural wonders of the Galapagos onboard this intimate ship. As part of the truly all-inclusive Galapagos experience, all Celebrity Xploration cruises will offer enthralling shore excursions led by expert naturalists and feature fresh regional seafood and fish with menus inspired by Celebrity’s Michelin-starred chef.
