My wife and I just returned home from Ecuador, having spent seven most memorable nights on the Celebrity Xpedition. Our ten day package included two pre-cruise nights, and one post-cruise night at the JW Marriott in Quito. We had looked at ... Read more

Others have done a _wonderful_ job of reviewing this cruise and their advice was very useful in letting us know what to expect. I'll just add things that either weren't mentioned or I would have preferred more emphasis on (or perhaps I ... Read more

This is not what I would describe as a leisurely pleasure cruise. There is no showroom or casino on the ship, very little entertainment & no pool. This is for those interested in close up encounters with an amazing variety of animals ... Read more

What you have read in other reviews is quite accurate. Here is my perspective: Celebrity planning - everything works like clockwork. Every detail is covered. Highly efficient and professional. You get what you pay for. When we arrived at ... Read more

The Celebrity Xpedition is an excellent choice for a cruise in the Galapagos Islands. The ship was built in Germany in 2001 and has been sailing in the Galapagos Islands for 10 years. They know what they are doing. We started in Quito. We ... Read more

This has taken so long to write because, basically, the experience left me speechless/overwhelmed. It’s taken a while to gain a perspective on it. Excursions/Activities: I could easily imagine striking off on my own and not seeing ... Read more

We had an excellent experience in the Galapagos on Celebrity Xpedition. Other people have detailed the itineraries and ship in great detail, and the ongoing discussion in the Role Call is quite helpful. The vast majority of people do the ... Read more

The Celebrity Xpedition made this trip very easy for us. We were picked up at the Quito, Ecuador airport on September 6 and transported to the Marriott Hotel where the check in was fast and the rooms were large and comfortable. A breakfast ... Read more

This was an outstanding cruise/land tour experience that did not disappoint. There were many choices to be made including time of year, weather preferences, wildlife sighting preferences, and Itinerary A&B. We could not decide which ... Read more

We were on an Xpedition Cruise from the 19th May - 26th May and had Suite 503, which was excellent. We cannot praise highly enough the staff on Xpedition - they were all fantastic. Diego, the Maitre'd, was amazing, he catered for my 'no ... 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

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
