Celebrity Cruises is known for large ships that hold thousands of passengers, but sailing to the remote Galapagos Islands, some 500 miles off the coast of Ecuador, is the mega-yacht-like Celebrity Xpedition, a sleek-looking vessel that combines adventure travel and luxury. A voyage on Xpedition is the way to see these legendary islands in comfort and style without missing any of the excitement of getting up close to wildlife that is so tame you can almost touch it — but note that reaching out to try is strictly verboten.
All of Celebrity Xpedition's staterooms are outside and spacious, Darwin's Restaurant is elegant, and the Discovery Lounge is a perfect place to relax and listen to nightly lectures by Ecuadorian naturalists, who sail with the ship and take small groups on walking tours around the islands. You'll get hot and dusty, but who cares. These excursions are so amazing you won't want to go back to the ship!
Entertainment options include evening lectures by the expedition teams. Ship amenities include massages, a fitness center, a hot tub, an alfresco bar, a library and an Internet café.
