Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship

Discover the Galapagos Islands on board one of the finest expedition vessels available. Ever since her arrival in Ecuador, the Celebrity Xperience (formerly the Eclipse) has surpassed the other options available in the Galapagos Islands, offering unparalleled levels of comfort and service. A 210 ft expedition vessel that accommodates up to 48 passengers in staterooms, each with a seaview, the Celebrity Xperience is the perfect base for any Galapagos adventure; a generously proportioned ship with a small yacht atmosphere.

Whether you are snorkeling with sea lions, watching a blue-footed booby feed its young, or following a giant tortoise through the forest, the Galapagos Islands will surpass all expectations. And there is no better way to enjoy the wonders of the islands, than on board the Celebrity Xperience.

Amenities on board the Celebrity Xperience
Dining Areas
All 48 passengers can be accommodated in one sitting in the spacious dining room. In addition to the elegant indoor dining room, there is an al fresco dining area located around the pool, where you can enjoy the islands' spectacular scenery over a delicious lunch. The al fresco area also features a bar, which is open at lunchtime and in the evening.

Lounge
There is a lounge for relaxation and for the nightly briefings on the day's discoveries and the following day's activities. 

Sun Deck
The Sun Deck is ideal for stargazing, soaking in the Jacuzzi, or relaxing in the comfortable sun loungers. In addition to shaded seating areas and exercise machines, the best seats in the house for wildlife viewing are found at the observation point.

Bars
The indoor bar is attended at all times and the outdoor bar's opening hours may vary according to weather conditions.

Library
There is also a well-stocked library for quiet study and reading.

Boutique
A boutique is located next to the Front Desk. It is open at all times, except during excursions to the islands. The boutique carries a selection of T-shirts, jewelry, books and Celebrity Xperience apparel, as well as toiletries and other convenience items.

Accommodations
The Celebrity Xperience has 3 types of cabin, all of which have sea views:

12 Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms on the Main Deck
8 Premium Ocean View Staterooms on the Boat Deck
4 Elite Ocean View  Staterooms on the Boat Deck

Fully air-conditioned, the Celebrity Xperience´s spacious cabins have either a queen or twin bed arrangement, and all twin beds can be converted to king-size beds upon request. Private bath facilities with biodegradable toiletries and complimentary use of bathrobes. Cabins are serviced three times a day. Elite and Premium Staterooms on the Boat Deck have picture windows and Deluxe Staterooms on the Main Deck have portholes.

The well-appointed bathrooms consist of a shower, toilet, sink, cabinet, hairdryer and a basket of toiletries. Guests are offered the use of complimentary bathrobes. Fresh towels are available every day should passengers require them; however, please take into consideration the water conservation policy that is in effect on board.

Activities on board the Celebrity Xperience​
Island Excursions
Celebrity Xperience anchors offshore at the visitor sites, and motorized dinghies carry you to landing points. Have a unique opportunity to interact with the natural world to a degree that is virtually impossible anywhere else on the planet.

Snorkeling
You can choose between two types of snorkeling: from the beach, which is suitable for beginners, and deep water snorkeling from a motorized dinghy. Delve into the spectacular underwater world of the Galapagos Islands and share the marine environment with rays, sea turtles, sharks, flightless cormorants, penguins, marine iguanas, a multitude of fish, and of course the ever playful sea lions.

Kayaking
For those who don't want to snorkel, kayaking provides a wonderful opportunity to observe the wildlife up-close along the cliffs and in the water. 

Panga Rides
Due to the fragile nature of the islands’ ecosystems, certain visitor sites do not allow land excursions, so you can explore the area by motorized dinghy.

Star Gazing
Since Galapagos offers cloudless skies most of the year, stargazing should not be missed. There are nightly lectures on the top deck with visual aids to enhance the sightings (December to April).

Whale Watching
There is always the opportunity to whale-watch while traveling between the different islands, especially from June to September. However, the best chance of seeing whales is off the northwest coast of Isabela on Tuesday. An announcement will always be made if a whale is spotted.

Equator Crossing
On Wednesday afternoon, after the panga ride at Punta Vicente Roca, the Celebrity Xperience will cross the Equator. Passengers are welcome to go to the bridge and observe the GPS showing latitude 0º and join the crew afterwards for a delicious Sushi in the al fresco area.

Open Bridge Policy
Navigation lessons from the Captain and officers are available whenever the ship is anchored.

Entertainment
On Tuesday evening there will be musical entertainment after dinner.

Lectures and Briefings
The expedition leader and the guides will give nightly lectures on the islands, in addition to briefings on the next day´s activities.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
