Celebrity Xpedition Cruise Review by bdymott

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2017
  • Destination: Galapagos
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom

We wanted a boat larger than the 14-16 passenger ones you see most often in the Galapagos. The ability level of vast majority of passengers was limited. Very few passengers under the age of 60. We are very experienced snorkelers and were looking forward to deep water snorkeling offered to advanced snorkelers. Unfortunately, there were always a few passengers electing to go on these excursions and interrupted our experience since they could barely swim much less snorkel. We went in February, so water was warm enough to swim with just a rash guard, no wet suit needed. We took our own mask and snorkel and used their fins.

You need to know the internet service is practically non-existent, could barely retrieve emails, but no attachments. The ship has plenty of room to roam and get away from annoying passengers. We had cabin #311, a smaller one, and it had plenty of room, plus you are seldom in the cabin.

Food was good, disappointed no lobster was available. All staff onboard provided exceptional service. Naturalists were all outstanding, especially Marta. Shore excursions included and had two levels of ability. Definitely not a cruise for teenagers or children. It's a bucket list experience and expensive, so we'd not be going again, but would recommend others take this trip.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom
Cabin XD 311

Get 2 twin beds, even if you're a couple, otherwise one person is jammed against the wall. Plenty of room in cabin. Do not waste money on more expensive cabin. We could hear anchor going up and down, but not a big deal. Ship movement was minimal.
