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

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

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

The experience is amazing. The comments and reflections by others adequately sum up the experience. I was impressed on the life boat drill. In my many years of cruising it was perhaps the best that I have experienced. Unlike the larger ... 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 did a lot of research before selecting this cruise. It is not a cheap investment to go on this ship. Almost all of the review are glowingly positive. Here were our experiences with this cruise. We purchased the before and after ... 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
