Having just returned from our 10 day Quito and Galapagos experience, there are still visions of land and marine iguanas, blue-footed boobys and giant tortoises floating in our heads. What an experience! And Celebrity does it right. ... Read more

Cruise included two night pre stay at the JW Marriott in Quito Ecuador. Hotel was very good. All meals included. Tour they gave us was not very good. Would have been better to have different options for tours. All transfers, drivers ... Read more

Going to this Galapagos cruise, I was very nervous about sea-sickness, inadequate staterooms or standard of food, etc. on the ship. None of these fears were realized. The stateroom (Suite 602) was very comfortable though admittedly ... Read more

This experience really exceeded my expectations. As a travel consultant I have traveled a lot. But this was the best nature cruise/vacation that I have ever experienced. From the moment we exited Immigration we were wrapped in the arms ... Read more

My husband and I did the 10 day package with Celebrity on Xpedition in cabin XS501. This was definitely a different type cruise than we are used (we like lazy beach time) but we knew that going in and were pleasantly surprised at how much ... Read more

Since I prepared myself my reading all the reviews that the people before me left I only find it fitting that I write a review to help the people after me. To start this off I am a 30 year old male that went with my wife, father in law and ... Read more

This was a trip I have wanted to do for many years. Hearing someone talk about his experience on this trip and seeing his pictures, the trip became a reality. My wife and I are in our late 60's and in decent health. We decided on the ... Read more

I just returned from a Galapagos cruise with Celebrity. The cruise itself is 7 days but the package includes 2 nights pre-cruise at the Mariott in Quito and 1 night post-cruise at the same hotel. The cruise package is all inclusive. ... Read more

To be clear, I'm not an experienced cruiser (only one prior cruise 25 years ago, with no plans to sail today's giant modern ships), and we don't fit the typical demographic—I'm a 52-year-old man traveling with my 18-year-old ... Read more

I loved this cruise. It was different than the many others I have taken--more nature; less commercial. No Diamonds International or commercials trying to sell something onboard. The naturalists make the trip a cut above. There was no place ... Read more

Extensive travel can foster skepticism about promotional information. In this instance the Galapagos aboard Xpedition is everything, and more, than the publicity promotes. I regretted that skepticism kept us from booking a b2b of both ... Read more

For those looking for a standard cruise this would not be your thing although Celebrity does its best to bring a lot of its standard cruise feature to this ship. For those looking for an amazing adventure with an up close and personal ... Read more

In the interest of full disclosure, my wife and I are not big cruisers. We travel extensively, but have only done a few cruises. Generally, we find them underwhelming. Celebrity's Xpedition in the Galapagos is an exception and we ... Read more

As many people have contributed very detailed reviews, which are very helpful with planning for this trip, I have decided to review it from a UK point of view and give personal observations. First this trip requires stamina, ... Read more

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

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
