Just briefly, this is a hard working vacation to get to see as much as one can when leaving the ship. We used several private tours companies which gave us the advantage of having a smaller van, our own group, guide, driver but at half ... Read more

My husband and I are in our early 40s and this was our second trip on Xpedition. We took the 10-night cruisetour in Sept. 2007 and enjoyed it so much that we wanted to return. We decided to take the 13-night Galapagos cruise B with Machu ... Read more

We took the eight-day Galapagos cruise on the Celebrity Xpedition. While the Galapagos animals and environment are the core of the trip, Celebrity does finesse the supporting logistics. Like many visitors, we weighed up the big ship/small ... Read more

There are countless reviews on Cruise Critic about the Galapagos cruise on the Celebrity Xpedition and we echo the glowing reports already posted. So instead I am going to concentrate on only those items that we learned while on the ... Read more

My wife has had the Galapagos on her bucket list forever and we decided that if we wanted to really enjoy it we should go when we are able. It is not your typical cruise. Celebrity's Expedition is set up for adventure. While the staterooms ... Read more

Xpedition is billed as a "luxury" cruise in the Galapagos. The reality is that the Galapagos islands are a long way from anywhere (600 miles off the coast of Ecuador), in a challenging environment, so any cruise line operating there will ... Read more

We booked our recent cruise on the Xpedition in May 2012 and with much anticipation finally departed the US midwest at the end of January 2013. Since we always do our own air we decided to go to Quito a few days early to both escape the ... Read more

Celebrity Xpedition is comparable to the Regent, Crystal & Silversea cruises we have taken with regards to how you are treated on board. Our cruise stared in Quito, Ecaudor with a two night stay in the J.W. Marriott Hotel. This was a ... Read more

We took the 7 day cruise to the Galapagos and the add-on land trip portion to Machu Picchu. The entire trip was amazing! As far as the cruise to the Galapagos: -if you like nature: animals, fish, geology, land formations, climatology ... Read more

We booked the 10 day cruise with Celebrity spending 3 nights in Quito at the Marriott and 7 nights on the Xpedition in the Galapagos. Celebrity took care of us from the time we stepped off the plane until it was time to get on the plane ... Read more

We are not inveterate cruisers, having been on two cruises before succumbing to the blandishments of seeing a place we had always had on our list. We flew to Quito and were quickly enveloped by the Celebrity on-site staff, transported ... Read more

The Galapagos are a unique experience not to be missed. The Marriott, Quito, where the pre and post cruise stays were spent, was in, every sense, a luxury hotel. The crew of the Xpedition was courteous and attentive. The cabins were ... Read more

We agree with most of the information provided in reviews contained in this forum but with less enthusiasm. I will add some personal thoughts. The itinerary was fine but after seeing bluefooted boobies, sally lightfoot crabs, sealions, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its itinerary--very anxious to cruise the Panama Canal and we also used the cruise as our transportation back to Florida following a 2+week of independent travel throughout Peru and Chile. The cruise was our rest ... Read more

The cruise around the Islands of the Galapagos was great. It far exceeded expectations and we were very happy. It seems that all the cruise lines are under the fist of the Galapagos Islands and have some very stringent rules they must ... Read more

We recently lost our cruising virginity on a 14 day cruise from Buenos Aries around Cape Horn to Valparaiso. Quite frankly, I am glad we saved ourselves for Celebrity. My wife and I like active cycling and/or hiking vacations and we ... Read more

Cruising was a lot more comfortable than taking trains, planes, and other methods of rushing across Europe, trying to get to different places. The Solstice was a beautiful ship and I was glad to go AquaClass, because it gave me access to ... Read more
