The Galapagos are a magical place. Is the Xpedition just as magical?
"We saw numerous Blue-footed Boobies, a bunch of sea lions, including a baby (just a few days old per the naturalist) who was in the same area as a huge Sea Iguana and the red crabs.We also saw a few huge gray Pelicans, many sea turtles bobbing up their heads, and the water was so clear that as we passed one of the sea turtles we could clearly see it underwater...."Read More

Our cruise package included a three day land tour of Quito, Ecuador as well as a week long Galapagos cruise. The tour package included lodging at the excellent JW Marriott hotel in Quito (2 days prior and 1 day after the cruise). Meals were included in the land tour as well as transportation and a tour of the old town. The JW Marriott was top of the line and likely rated five stars. The ...

This is a long, "Log style" review. If you just want the summary scroll down to the bottom. XPEDITION 11-17-21 Our adventure begins on Wednesday, November 16. We had arranged appointments for rapid PCR tests at the CVS clinic in Palm Beach Gardens. Although we arrived early they took us right away. We met up with our traveling friends at their home in Jupiter and began heading ...

The Galapagos southern loop was exceptional. Traveling with reduced capacity made for a very intimate expedition. The food, service, and accommodations were beautiful. I completely understand and appreciate the care and concern from island to island, as we were asked to wash off our shoes, each time, so no seeds or poop could be transferred to another island. The talks were invaluable and ...

Our cruise on Xpedition was a celebration of my 40th birthday, and the trip truly exceeded expectations. From the exceptional staff to the fresh local food on board, we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. Xpedition is a relatively old ship by modern cruise standards, but she has aged well and is lovingly maintained. We were surprised how much she felt like a true Celebrity ship just on a much ...

This was a bucket list item for me and my friend. I wanted to see what Darwin saw in 1835, and he wanted to see the Galapagos tortoises, since he has two "normal size" tortoises as pets. Our wives had no interest in going, so we shared a room together. We wanted to spend time in Quito, Ecuador, so opted for the time in Quito before and after the islands. We flew into Quito from our ...

My wife and I did the Western loop of the Galapagos on the Xpedition. The cruise was wonderful, meeting or exceeding all of our expectations. A detailed review follows. My wife and I generally look for values when we cruise. We try to book mainline cruise trips for $100 or less per person per day. Needless to say, there is no such option in the Galapagos. The best “deal” we could find ...

We have sailed with Celebrity a few times and almost all of our experiences have been excellent. This trip was no different. Although the ship is going for a complete refit this year, it was kept in good order and well organised. Our room was well designed, so although smaller than large ship cabins, it was fine. All of the ship's staff are excellent, the service in the bar and dining room, rooms, ...

We knew we would love the Galapagos, but we didn't know how much! My husband, my son and I shared cabin XS 500 on Xpedition and had a fantastic time. The ship focused on the activities, including snorkeling and hiking and we packed activities into each day. We were tired but happy when we got home. The crew and amenities were great and we feel we got good value for our money. I would go to ...

Bucket list cruise. Crew was great and the onshore staff too. If you don't like the cattle call feel of the big ships, this for you. Two to three excursions a day will keep you busy and teach you how to get on and off the Zodiacs. Food not as lavish as the big ships but still very good and plentiful. Cabins are not huge, but they're comfortable. I've been on 20+ cruises, at least 7 or 8 on ...
