Celebrity Xpedition

As the first of our unique Xpedition Class, Celebrity Xpedition is a little different to the rest of the Celebrity Cruises fleet. Sailing to the legendary Galapagos Islands, Xpedition offers a once in a lifetime experience∘ that is half luxury cruise, half intrepid exploration.

This smaller ship is the perfect place to relax after a day spent exploring the mythical Galapagos∘ Islands. From the peace of the library to the serenity∘ of the hot tub on the sun-soaked sunrise desk, you’ll soon find your personal favourite spot on Celebrity Xpedition.

You can also enjoy spectacular views of the natural wonders outside from the Blue Finch Bar on the Panorama Deck. The Discovery Lounge, with its warm and lively atmosphere, hosts daily lectures∘ from a number of expert naturalists, preparing you for the rare and unique creatures awaiting you on the shores of the Galapagos Islands.
