Celebrity Cruises Announces Galapagos Sailings for 2023, Giving Guests the Chance to Explore this One-of-a-Kind Destination in Ultimate Luxury
MIAMI (March 10, 2021) - Celebrity Cruises has today announced its 2023 sailings around the stunning Galapagos Islands - perfect for those looking to plan a vacation that’s on every world traveler’s “must see” list.
From New Year’s Eve 2022, the new luxury travel brand will offer six unique, in-depth itineraries that are meticulously designed to ensure travelers experience the best of the islands on every sailing. Guests will also be able to choose from three stunning ships—the luxurious, state-of-the-art mega-yacht, Celebrity Flora®, the award-winning Celebrity Xpedition®, and the intimate 16-passenger Celebrity Xploration®.
For those looking to explore the Galapagos’ spectacular wonders in ultimate luxury, Celebrity Flora®, a mega-yacht built specifically to navigate the waters of this natural paradise, is ideal. Inspired by the islands and built with natural materials and the latest environmental technologies, the ship merges seamlessly with the surroundings. And, to fully immerse travelers in this extraordinary landscape, certified naturalists from the Galápagos National Park are on board to guide the journey.
In 2023, Celebrity Flora® will offer two unforgettable sailings around the Galapagos: Outer Loop and Inner Loop itineraries. On either itinerary, guests will spot exotic wildlife, walk on volcanic islands and black-sand beaches, and witness some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
Meanwhile, Celebrity Xpedition® and Celebrity Xploration® will both explore the equally beautiful 7-Night Galapagos Northern Loop and 7-Night Galapagos Southern Loop. In this extraordinary destination, every island offers its own unique experiences, from hiking otherworldly volcanic landscapes to snorkeling alongside sea turtles in their natural habitat.
What’s more, vacations to the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruises are all inclusive, meaning guests won’t have to spend a single minute thinking about logistics and details. Alongside twice-daily shore excursions guided by Galapagos National Park certified naturalists, locally sourced cuisine from menus crafted by a Michelin-starred chef, drinks, unlimited Wifi, tips, luxury hotel stays and flights between Ecuador and the islands, everything has been thought of - even any equipment needed, like snorkeling apparatus, wetsuits, binoculars, and more is included.
Across all sailings, Celebrity Cruises also offers comprehensive 10-to-16-night vacation packages, adding even more bucket-list adventures into one vacation from the history and culture of Quito, to the charm and beauty of Lima, and the ancient allure of Machu Picchu, the legendary Inca citadel perched high up in the Andes.
