Celebrity Xperience

Ship Overview

Operated by: Celebrity Xpeditions

Celebrity Xperience was formerly named Eclipse.

Celebrity Xperience is perhaps the finest boutique expedition vessel cruising the Galápagos Islands today. Large enough to travel the Pacific in comfort and safety, small enough to dock at remote ports and negotiate inter-island landings with agility, Celebrity Xperience is the perfect size for an expedition-style adventure and the choice for travellers who prefer the intimate, comfortable atmosphere and attentive service of a smaller boutique vessel to a larger cruise ship. Celebrity Xperience features outstanding open-air spaces, comfortable cabins, and spectacular al fresco dining.

The 26 spacious staterooms accommodate up to 48 guests - just half the number usually found on a ship this size. This means that passengers can enjoy the generous accommodation of a larger vessel, while preserving the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller yacht. Exploring with a small group of like-minded fellow travellers, guests can experience tailor-made itineraries led by certified naturalist guides.

In 2015, Celebrity Xperience was the recipient of the prestigious World Travel Award in the category of 'South America´s Leading Boutique Cruise'.

Dining

Celebrity Xperience's chic indoor dining room features panoramic windows and and all guests can be accommodated in one sitting. The cuisine is a blend of international and local Ecuadorian flavours, freshly prepared and served buffet-style. Whether it is a hearty breakfast, a themed lunch or a delicious dinner, guests can enjoy quality meals combined with efficient service and outstanding views. Celebrity Xperience is the only mid-size vessel in the Galapagos that serves a large proportion of its meals outside. Located at the stern of the ship, the al fresco dining area allows guests can savor a scrumptious meal with the islands’ stunning scenery as a backdrop. The al fresco area also features a bar, which is open at lunchtime and in the evening.

Features

Celebrity Xperience offers a generous amount of usable space due to her low guest numbers. The main lounge provides a relaxed atmosphere for socialising, watching documentaries or sipping a cocktail at the lounge bar. There is comfortable seating, perfect for the nightly briefings and lectures given by the naturalist guides who bring this complex region to life and illuminate your time in the Galápagos. One of the most popular areas on board is the Sun Deck, ideal for stargazing, soaking in the Jacuzzi, or relaxing in the comfortable sun loungers. In addition to shaded seating areas and exercise machines, the best seats in the house for wildlife viewing are found at the observation point - an excellent spot for whale and dolphin sightings. The reception area is the heart of Celebrity Xperience, with information on daily activities and anything else guests may require. The boutique sells an assortment of T-shirts, jewelry, books and Celebrity Xperience apparel, as well as toiletries and other convenience items. The well-stocked library is a quiet place to catch up on some reading, play a board game or watch a documentary.

Celebrity Xperience's expedition team is highly regarded and expert naturalist guides offer nightly briefings and lectures on the day’s discoveries and specific topics related to the islands. There is one English-speaking naturalist guide for every 12 guests. Expeditions ashore are undertaken by motorised dinghy, locally known as 'pangas' due to the fragile nature of the islands’ ecosystems. Certain visitor sites do not allow land excursions, so these are explored by panga. The ship also features a fully-equipped snorkelling department, and a fleet of kayaks which allow a wonderful opportunity to observe the wildlife up-close along the cliffs and in the water.

Celebrity Xperience has an open bridge policy, which means that guests are welcome to visit the captain and his officers for a lesson in navigation throughout the cruise.
