Ship Facts: Celebrity Xpedition Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Xpedition Deck Plans
Galapagos Adventure
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 and food were satisfactory, this is not your typical high end cruise. The boat only accommodates about 90 people, which was just the right amount for a cruise like this. Each day would start at another island with private naturalists accompanying small groups to that morning's activity. These were broken up into easy and moderate types of hikes or snorkeling. While the actual activities were not difficult, it was hard for some to partake, as it might include climbing off a zodiac boat onto lava rocks. The scenery and wildlife were breathtaking and the staff and service on this boat were equal to anything I have experienced on a Crystal Cruise or a Four Seasons hotel. Absolutely phenomenal.

The boat itself was a perfect size for moving through the islands, but be aware that due to its size and poor stabilizers it moves and rolls quite a bit. One night was so bad that things were crashing off the shelves in my room and a water bottle came off the night table and struck me in the head. The food service was terrific, but please be aware that the food on this cruise is not up to Celebrity's typical standards. After speaking with some of the staff it was mentioned to us that the location of this cruise doesn't make it possible to stock the boat with all the finer things one might expect. Overall this was truly a fantastic experience. The Celebrity staff took care of us from the second we stepped off the plane in Quito and until we boarded the plane home. It was an incredible 10 days and my wife can now scratch it off her list. I wonder what's next?
