In reading other people's reviews, we noticed a constant theme which was, "trip of a lifetime" and that proved to be the same with our trip. If you are planning on taking this trip as a relaxing cruise, think again and change to another ... Read more

Just recently returned from a 12-day Eastern Mediterranean trip, over all we had a great time. The Solstice staff were engaging and happy to make the stay on the ship as enjoyable as they can. We did not partake in the specialty ... Read more

We went on the same cruise as Patthecruiser and had the stateroom next door to his. My comments are similar to his. This was an overall wonderful experience. The small ship with only 92 passengers meant that we got to know nearly ... Read more

The Ship: There have been ample reviews about the decor of the ship and I admit its impressive, with some wonderful artwork. The cabins are lovely, about the best we have seen apart from no light on the balcony, great beds and bedding no ... Read more

Amen to "the trip of a lifetime." Plan on a lot of walking and never a dull moment, but everything was so well done and coordinated by Celebrity. I can find nothing to fault about the entire cruise. You all will have the best time, but ... Read more

We booked this trip 18 months in advance after visiting a travel show. I was a little concerned because I didn't think the Galapagos cruise on Celebrity could be as good as everyone said, but I was wrong... It was better. We have never ... Read more

We were interested in this cruise because it sailed so far north and because it had many days at sea (every other day), which are the ones we enjoy the most. In summer we try to escape from the heat, and look for cold and long days. ... Read more

For our 20th anniversary my husband and I cruised the Galapagos on the Celebrity Xpedition in March 2011. We opted for the 10 day option which included 2 nights pre-cruise in Quito and 1 night post-cruise. I'd recommend this option to ... Read more

Like all the other Cruise Critic correspondents, we had a great time in the Galapagos - we have done 37 previous cruises and this was probably the best. We Brits can fly from Europe to Quito direct, via Madrid or Amsterdam, but we ... Read more

We are in our seventies and this was our 7th cruise. Exploring the Galapagos was something that had been on our "to do" list and it turned out to be a trip of a lifetime on a perfect ship. Many people have offered comprehensive reports on ... Read more

This was my wife and my 21st cruise and 11th on Celebrity. As others have said, this was a "bucket list" cruise. We have put it off for years mainly for the cost. At first glance these cruises seem expensive. However, when I look at the ... Read more

Since the Xpedition carries only 90 or so passengers, getting on board did not involve long lines or delays. We were bussed from the airport on Baltra to a pier, boarded small 16 passenger Zodiac boats and taken to the ship. Our baggage ... Read more
