Trip of A lifetime: Celebrity Xpedition Cruise Review by Hoytj
Overall Member Rating
Trip of A lifetime
Destination: South America
Flew to Baltra in the Galapagos the next day. Loaded onto the Expedition via PONGAS - we know them as Zodiacs. 20 person rafts that were our transport for the next week - sometimes with wet and sometimes with dry landings.
Expedition holds about 100 passengers and had over 60 crew including 6 wonderful naturalists. All meals and top shelf liquor all day More was included, as were all gratuities.
8am departures for two hour hikes each morning then another island and another hike in the afternoon. More picture opportunities than you can possibly imagine. Sea lions, iguanas, turtles, birds that defy the imagination, sharks etc - and you can snorkle with them if you choose.
It was a little rocky on the ship for sleeping some nights. Almost everyone had seasickness patches - see your doctor.
Wonderful food and crew - almost all from Ecuador. Trip was exactly as advertised. Expensive but I would highly recommend it. Less
