I am not going to go into day to day detail as it has been done before and all is accurate. Celebrity definitely does a superb job in the Galapagos. From the airport to the JW Marriot, meals on land and on the ship the staff are all very professional and make it a seamless vacation. It is very inspirational to be in a place where the wildlife has no fear of humans. I travelled with my husband, we are both in our 50's and always did the long walk with no issues. This trip lived up to everything we could imagine and we would go back in a minute if given the chance. We saw every type of mammal, reptile and bird we expected we would see and more. The naturalists were fun, interesting and very proud of their country. We had Manuel, William, Fatima, David, Jorge and Marvi. Jean was our cruise director. All did an excellent job. The bar/restaurant staff were all very attentive.We stayed in the least expensive stateroom and had plenty of space, 2 closets and a roomy bathroom. Meals were excellent. We loved the fresh cold towels given out after the tours. Not an additional dime to spend on this 11 days unless you wanted to purchase souvenirs or Internet minutes on the ship. Not the cruise you want to wait too long to do as getting on the zodiacs from the wet landings can be a bit challenging if you have limited mobility. We hated to leave such a beautiful and serene country! Would recommend to anyone who is a nature lover. Hats off to Celebrity for a job well done!!!

Yes it is definately the

Cabin Review

Ocean View Stateroom
Cabin XO 318
Very quiet except for the anchor. It is a very small ship and I assume you would hear that from many of the cabins. Did not bother us at all. It was a good alarm clock. Good size for the least expensive category on the ship.
Good sized washroom and 2 closets plus a desk with chair.
