Following a weeklong makeover in Panama, Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Xpedition will return to service in the Galapagos on Sept. 23, 2018 with a new look and several enhancements.
Changes made to the 100-guest mega yacht include redecorated staterooms, lounges, and restaurants, the addition of water filtration systems on every deck, and upgraded shipboard IT systems, which will improve the speed and reliability of the ships’ full-coverage WiFi. Then in June 2019, Celebrity Xpedition will debut enhanced suite services and amenities coinciding with the arrival of the new Celebrity Flora. Suite guests will be geared up with marine binoculars to use on their sailing, as well as backpacks and rain ponchos that they can take back home with them. When unwinding in their suites, guests will be able to take advantage of full in-suite dinner service, upgraded premium bathrobes, luxury Kuno bath products from Ecuador, and stateroom attendants who can help with packing and unpacking.
“Our commitment to the Galapagos Islands has never been stronger, because we know, having sailed these awe-inspiring islands for so many years, what a life-changing experience it is to come here,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, in press materials. “The upgrades we’re making to Celebrity Xpedition and the upcoming arrival of our new Celebrity Flora, the first ship designed specifically with the Galapagos Islands in mind, will transform the way our guests discover this amazing place and take our unrivaled Galapagos offerings to an entirely new level.”
