Offering a refreshingly intimate and cozy experience that can only be found on a smaller ship, the Celebrity Xploration is the ideal way to visit the Galapagos Islands. Designed for only 16 guests, you'll feel the sense of community as you lay back to the sound of the ocean aboard the sun deck, or spend some relaxing in the lounge.
While this ship from the Celebrity Cruises line is small, you'll still have plenty of room. With a private fridge filled with your choice of drinks and laundry services, the Celebrity Xploration will make you feel like an A-lister. Dine al fresco in the ship's outdoor dining area, and make sure you bring a camera to capture the stunning ocean and stars. Galapagos experts are also on board to provide a fascinating insight into nature you'll encounter. As you cruise on the Celebrity Xploration and approach the stunning Galapagos Islands, you'll understand the irresistible charm of a small ship.
The cruise exemplifies intimacy with only eight staterooms. The two options - Elite Ocean View and Junior Suite, 180 and 190 square feet, respectively - both provide luxury and comfort through room service and a choice of a soft or firm mattress. Recline on the Junior Suite's balcony as you take in the idyllic view, or take some stunning photos from the Elite Ocean View's generously large windows.
Dining & Gastronomy
While eating in the dining room, you'll feel at home thanks to the cozy setting and decor. The food takes things to an even higher level of excellence - you'll truly notice the freshness and quality of the ingredients and seafood. In the outdoor dining area, cool off in the shade with a drink in your hand. What's more, special Dinner Under the Stars nights promise a unique dining experience.
Entertainment and Activities
Soak in the rays on the sun deck, where you'll catch a glimpse of nearby whales and can marvel at the vivid starry sky. Grab your favorite drink at one of the two bars, or head over to the lounge for some quiet time with your traveling companion. The long couches are perfect for sinking into and taking a peaceful afternoon nap.
Casual clothes - shorts, T-shirts and caps - are okay during the day but not for dining. During the evening, passengers should wear smart casual attire, such as pants, jeans, long-sleeved tops, and skirts. On Evening Chic nights, men should wear pants or designer jeans, with a sweater or a dress/button-down shirt. Women should wear elegant tops, cocktail dresses, designer jeans, pants, or skirts.
