The Galápagos Islands have been the center of scientific research for decades.  The islands are unrivaled in unique flora and fauna you’ll not see anywhere else in the world.  Experiencing this part of the world is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.  Celebrity cruises offers around six 7-night cruise itineraries a year as well as vacation packages ranging from 10 to 16 nights.

The cruise offers begin in Quito, Ecuador.  Quito is a beautiful city situated on the equator.  Then they set out aboard one of three Celebrity cruise ships, the Flora, Xpedition, and the Xploration.  The Flora launched in 2019 and is the first ship of its kind built solely for the Galapagos.

It’s a beautiful ship inside and out, and as a 100 passenger ship, you are guaranteed to have a personal experience built just for you.  After departing Quito, you’ll venture to the Galapagos and get an opportunity to go on a guided tour of the islands, while a guide points out the specific species of plants and animals you will never see anywhere else.

The extended vacation packages would be the offer we would strongly suggest.  They also begin in Quito, but instead of just sailing out of that beautiful city, Celebrity’s trained guides will show you the city, give you the opportunity to straddle both hemispheres at the same time, as well taste South American cuisines all after your 7 day Galapagos excursion.  The 10 day vacation gives you all this as well as the 11 day, the only difference being an extra day to relax at Quito.  The 16 day vacation is different though.  You’ll see the Galapagos as well as Quito, but they’ll also take you down into Peru to see Machu Picchu.  This famous historical site from the 15th century is an Inca citadel located in the Andes mountains.  Without getting too much into details about it, we’ll just say that its definitely
worth it.

All these vacation packages are pricy and may not be for everyone.  But it is certainly a once in a lifetime experience.  You’ll be able to see the Galapagos, Quito, both hemispheres, and if you decide to you’ll see the Andes mountains and Machu Picchu.  If you have any questions about these cruises, don’t hesitate to ask!  We would be happy to help!
