Great, with a few reservations

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Other
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 smaller than usual, but we expected this. The naturalists were, generally, great, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food was about as good as we had experienced on Celebrity cruises in the past. All alcohol was included in the not insubstantial cruise price. All equipment was also provided. Everything was well organized and executed efficiently.

Only negatives:

A methane odor was evident in our cabin and in the hall on deck three. The crew was apprised of this, but no improvement was made.

Since there was really only one indoor common area, a single group could (and did) monopolize its use.

The food served on the Baltra-Quito flight at the end of the cruise was just about the worst airline food I have ever had More (and that is saying something).

These problems (with the exception of the odor) are minor. All in all, a great cruise. Less

Cabin review: XD311 Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom

Small cabin. Bed required one of the the two occupants to exit at end of bed, since one side rested against wall. Small bathroom. However, this said, the cabin was adequate for two with sufficient storage space. The rotten-eggs odor has been noted already.
