Espanola Galapagos Islands
DURATION:8 Days/ 7 NightsREGION:South & Central AmericaSHIP:Celebrity Xperience
Situated 1,000 kilometres off the coast of Ecuador, the Galápagos archipelago consists of 19 islands and more than 40 islets offering a unique interaction with nature. The Islands are synonymous with survival and the celebration of the diversity of species on earth. There is perhaps no better way to discover the Galápagos
Islands than aboard the boutique small ship Celebrity Xperience. With an expert, English-speaking naturalist guide for each 12 guests and guest numbers limited to 48, the ship offers spacious indoor and outdoor areas, with more outdoor space than any other boat of the same size operating in the archipelago.â€‹
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'.
