MIAMI, July 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelers who
have waited more than 15 months to experience the wonders of the
world set sail today in the breath-taking Galapagos Islands aboard
the luxurious, state-of-the-art mega yacht, Celebrity Flora.
The first of the new-luxury brand's three ships to resume sailing
the extraordinary archipelago, guests will be treated to a curated
seven-night itinerary through a world unlike any other.
The sailing will be shortly followed by the award-winning
Celebrity Xpedition on July 24
and the intimate 16-passenger Celebrity Xploration on
September 18. They will both equally
explore the Galapagos with Northern and Southern Loop itineraries,
while offering ultimate individual indulgences.
"The Galapagos islands are a treasure and a destination that is
incomparable to any other in the world. We couldn't be more excited
to welcome guests aboard the most special ship in this region for
the very special, bucket-list voyage they have been dreaming of for
so many months," said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO
Combining unparalleled luxury and specular vistas, Celebrity
Flora was built specifically to navigate the waters of this
natural paradise. Inspired by the islands and built with a variety
of natural materials, along with the latest environmental
technologies, the ship merges seamlessly with its surroundings.
And, to fully immerse travellers in this extraordinary landscape,
certified naturalists from the Galápagos National Park are on board
to guide the journey.
In this extraordinary destination, unique experiences abound,
from hiking otherworldly volcanic landscapes to snorkelling
alongside sea turtles in their natural habitat. Guests can also
partake in twice-daily shore excursions guided by Galapagos
National Park certified naturalists or stay onboard to relax and be
treated to locally-sourced cuisine crafted by a Michelin-starred
