The Galapagos is best described as a place that you can’t truly describe, only experience. Celebrity Flora is incredible with a team of naturalists, who are employed by both the cruise and the national park. Essentially, these people know what they’re talking about. The naturalists lead walks, kayaking and snorkeling voyages around the island, giving great insight about all the amazing animals you’ll experience on the trip. They answer every question you can ask and make every experience fun, inclusive, and very educational.
In terms of the cruise, the Flora is an amazing boat. It holds a maximum of 100 people, so you’ll never feel cramped. The staff to guest ratio is close to 1:1, so you’ll never have an issue with getting assistance. The staff, in general, are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. They are funny, kind, engaging. These are truly some of the best people working in the service industry I have ever encountered.
The Flora itself is very high quality. Regular rooms all hold two people. They’re not huge, but the cruise isn’t long enough to make it feel cramped at any point. The cruise itself is very engaging and occupied with activities, so you’ll never be in your room for long periods of time. The suites are about double the size of a regular room, with great balconies. Everything on the cruise is high quality. The Flora is a very new-looking boat. Every person on my cruise, that had any previous experience with any different cruises or cruise lines, said that this was the highest quality cruise they had ever been on.
