THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

Discover the magic & mystery of the Galapagos
Located in the Pacific almost 1,000 km from Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and the surrounding marine reserve is a 'melting pot' of marine species, from the giant Galapagos tortoises that wander distant highlands, and prehistoric marine iguanas who sun themselves on black lava rocks while tiny Galapagos penguins dart through the water.

Known as the inspiration for Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, this cluster of islands is so isolated that many of its creatures cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. Spot the rare, Blue-footed Booby by its distinctive bright blue feet. Sit next to sea lions as they loll on the beach. Photograph giant tortoises as they graze on undisturbed. Being able to get so close to such rare and wild creatures is a privilege, magical and unforgettable.

Travel with Celebrity Cruises® to one of the last uninhabited places on earth, where the wildlife outnumbers travellers.

Extraordinary Place. Extraordinary Ship. All Suites. All Inclusive
Celebrity Flora® is Celebrity Cruises' first purpose-built ship specifically designed for the Galapagos Islands. With Celebrity's signature innovative outward-facing design, the luxurious 100-guest Celebrity Flora® erases boundaries ensuring you experience this typically remote destination to the fullest. The ship boasts 360-degree views of the islands, new dining venues, personal suite attendants and an openair stargazing platform, all with the destination in mind.

The decor throughout incorporates sustainable, natural materials to complement the destination. The latest ecofriendly technology is also employed, including solar power for energy efficiency, plus a dynamic positioning system that allows the ship to stay on station without using anchors, protecting the fragile seabed.

Indulge in the largest and most luxurious accommodations in the Galapagos Islands, where every stateroom is a suite. Dine on delectable menus, curated by a Michelin-starred chef, and allow your Personal Suite Attendant to help you unpack. This luxury mega yacht ensures that your visit to these primitive islands is anything but.

Access to the experts:
A team of highly qualified naturalist guides accompanies every sailing, sharing their deep knowledge of this archipelago. Together, you'll explore each island, where we'll introduce you to Galapagos tortoises, sea turtles, marine iguanas and more. Back onboard, your education continues with presentations on the fauna and flora you've seen, and what lies ahead.
