Cruises aboard the Celebrity Flora set sail on July 4th to the Galapagos Islands, marking the cruise line’s return to the Galapagos, which will be followed by Celebrity Expedition on July 24 and Celebrity Exploration on Sept. 18.
“The Galapagos islands are a treasure and a destination that is incomparable to any other in the world. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome guests aboard the most special ship in this region for the very special, bucket-list voyage they have been dreaming of for so many months,” said Celebrity Cruises president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, in a press statement.
Celebrity Flora was built specifically to navigate the waters of this natural paradise, built with a variety of natural materials, along with the latest environmental technologies, the ship merges seamlessly with its surroundings. And, to fully immerse travelers in the landscape, certified naturalists from the Galapagos National Park are on board to guide the itinerary.
In this destination, guests can take part in various activities ranging from hiking otherworldly volcanic landscapes to snorkeling alongside sea turtles in their natural habitat. Guests can also partake in twice-daily shore excursions guided by Galapagos National Park certified naturalists or stay onboard to relax and be treated to locally-sourced cuisine crafted by a Michelin-starred chef.
