The Celebrity Xpedition has emerged from a seven-day makeover in Panama, now surrounding guests in upgraded comforts as they explore the Galapagos Islands.
According to officials, it’s another bold step in “The Celebrity Revolution,” beyond the introduction of two industry-changing ships – Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Flora – and the US$500 million modernization of the rest of the brand’s fleet. When Xpedition made its stylish return to service yesterday (Sept. 23), the revitalized ship debuted an array of enhancements across the 100-guest mega-yacht, from redecorated staterooms, lounges and restaurants that perfectly complement the natural beauty of this one-of-a-kind destination, to faster and more reliable WiFi that allows guests to stay connected even as they disconnect.
“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,” noted Celebrity president Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “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 unrivalled Galapagos offerings to an entirely new level.”
In June 2019, Celebrity Xpedition will debut enhanced suites 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 cruise, as well as premium backpacks and rain ponchos that they can take back home with them. When unwinding in their suites on board, guests will enjoy stateroom attendants who can help with packing and unpacking, full in-suite dinner service, upgraded premium bathrobes, luxurious Kuno bath products from Ecuador, and more.
