Celebrity Xploration offers guests the once-in-a-lifetime experience of sailing to the legendary Galapagos Islands. She is one of three ships which cruise these waters, alongside Celebrity Xpedition and Celebrity Xperience, which allows you to witness the wonders these islands behold.
The ship has an occupancy of just 16 passengers, giving you the ultimate small ship experience and offering encounters with destinations you cannot experience elsewhere. Witness whale watching from the Sun Deck, broaden your knowledge with a briefing from the on-board Galapagos National Park certified naturalists, or simply settle down with a good book in the Lounge.
The dining choices are much more limited than that offered on the larger Celebrity ships, due to the size and occupancy on-board. The main dining venue is The Dining Room, which offers delicious food throughout the day. There is also an alfresco terrace to enjoy dining alongside the superb scenery that the Galapagos has to offer.
There are eight staterooms on-board Celebrity Xploration, the Junior Suite with Veranda and the Elite Ocean View Stateroom. Both of these feature a king-size bed with 300 thread count and 100% Egyptian cotton linens, plenty storage included in your bathroom and wardrobe, flat-screen TV, fridge stocked with a choice of beverages, WiFi and pillow menu. Guests also have complimentary use of premium bathrobes, beach towels, snorkel equipment and wetsuits.
The 16-passenger ship offers space to relax and unwind on-board. The Lounge is a relaxing indoor venue perfect for reading, watching a documentary or even enjoying a cocktail. This is also the area where most briefings take place from the Galapagos National Park naturalist – offering you first-hand insight into the destination. There is also a Sun Deck, great for enjoying the warming rays in the day and star-gazing at night. Why not even take a dip in the Jacuzzi on-board as you witness the wonders of the Galapagos from your ship?
Compared to the bigger ships, there are no cabaret or West-End shows on offer during your down-time, instead passengers can relax from a busy day exploring the Galapagos as spectacular wildlife offer their own night time performance. Watch nocturnal swallow-tailed gulls swooping across the night sky or catch a glimpse of whales as they breach the waters at dusk.
