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

For our 20th anniversary my husband and I cruised the Galapagos on the Celebrity Xpedition in March 2011. We opted for the 10 day option which included 2 nights pre-cruise in Quito and 1 night post-cruise. I'd recommend this option to ... 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

We are in our seventies and this was our 7th cruise. Exploring the Galapagos was something that had been on our "to do" list and it turned out to be a trip of a lifetime on a perfect ship. Many people have offered comprehensive reports on ... 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

We flew from DFW to Miami, then from Miami to Quitoon January 21, purposely breaking the flight up into two legs with a long layover in Miami, which gave us time to go into South Beach for a great lunch and little sight seeing. We arrived ... Read more

This was my wife and my 21st cruise and 11th on Celebrity. As others have said, this was a "bucket list" cruise. We have put it off for years mainly for the cost. At first glance these cruises seem expensive. However, when I look at the ... Read more

Since the Xpedition carries only 90 or so passengers, getting on board did not involve long lines or delays. We were bussed from the airport on Baltra to a pier, boarded small 16 passenger Zodiac boats and taken to the ship. Our baggage ... Read more
