Galapagos was on our bucket list. We booked this trip 19 months prior. This was trip B. We did the 10 day, which included 2 nights in Quito pre cruise and one night post cruise. Quito was OK but not anything to look forward to. Yes, we ... Read more

The Xpedition Sales Team is grossly uninformed and a number of Xpedition Passengers concurred that the information provided prior to departure from U.S. is very sparse and this team is not incentivized to provide helpful information to the ... Read more

My thirteen year old daughter talked me into this trip but I couldn't convince my wife and other daughter to join us because they are prone to seasickness. I researched this trip extensively here and read all reviews. Suffice it to say ... Read more

Visiting the Galapagos Islands has been on our bucket list forever, but it always seemed very daunting (both the cost and the expedition nature of the trip, especially on small boats). When we learned about Celebrity Xpedition, we felt ... Read more

Check! Was a great cruise. We were in cabin 506. It had a king bed and balcony. I highly recommend the balcony. We used the table and chairs and had cocktails and read books and star gazed nightly. Ship is a bit dated and needs a ... Read more

We booked 1 1/2 years in advance and this trip exceeded our expectations! Celebrity has everything down perfect. We were on the April 10 trip which included 2 nights in the Marriott in Quito pre-cruise and 1 night post-cruise. Here is a ... Read more

This tour was booked on a previous Celebrity cruise and it was our first expedition sail. Scanty Information about the tour specifics given, and the fact that I organized everything from my computer in Switzerland gave us a flash of ... Read more

In my opinion. All the Celebrity email promotions were useless, including my birthday credit because they were targeted to everything but the ship I was on. No-one at Celebrity phone center has any idea what the Xpedition is about.  ... Read more

A wonderful trip where we saw no end of wildlife, and I would recommend to anyone interested in birds and aquatic life. In terms of giving an account of what you will see and the standards of the crew and naturalists I don't think I can ... Read more

There were so many things I was worried about when selecting a Galapagos Cruise so I'll try to address those. 1. Itinerary A or B? We talked with a couple who just came off A and were doing B with us and asked their opinion. They said ... Read more

I'm not going to repeat what many other reviewers have already said about this fantastic cruise. I found their reviews to be very helpful, and I am going to add a few of my own comments and suggestions. Most importantly, this is a very ... 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

We decided to do Celebrity's 13-day package. It starts with two nights in Quito, moves to seven nights on the Xpedition, then continues with one night in Lima, three nights in Cusco, and a last night in Lima. We wanted to make the trip as ... 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
