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

We went with a group of 16, and we knew the cruise Line Celebrity Xpedition is the best that sails there. We were not disappointed. We did the 2 nights prior in Quito and 1 post night day in Quito, and the 7 day sailing around the ... Read more

We agree with most of the information provided in reviews contained in this forum but with less enthusiasm. I will add some personal thoughts. The itinerary was fine but after seeing bluefooted boobies, sally lightfoot crabs, sealions, ... Read more

The cruise around the Islands of the Galapagos was great. It far exceeded expectations and we were very happy. It seems that all the cruise lines are under the fist of the Galapagos Islands and have some very stringent rules they must ... Read more

I am not going to go into day to day detail as it has been done before and all is accurate. Celebrity definitely does a superb job in the Galapagos. From the airport to the JW Marriot, meals on land and on the ship the staff are all ... Read more

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

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

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

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

This is not a detailed review about each stop as this has been done, but one about enjoying life. The stars of this cruise are the animals large and small, land and water. We went in the quote "rainy season" and never had a drop. We ... Read more
