To celebrate the launch, Celebrity Cruises is offering savings of up to 25 per cent on selected sailings when booked before July 31, 2019.
One of the most energy-efficient ships of its size in the unspoiled archipelago, the 100-guest Celebrity Flora is the first ship of its kind designed specifically for the Galapagos Islands.
Featuring all-suite accommodation with personal attendants, onboard certified naturalists, and Celebrity Cruises’ signature outward-facing design, the ship has been thoughtfully designed to bring guests closer to the Galapagos Islands than ever before.
The ship is the first vessel in the Galapagos to be equipped with cutting-edge oceanographic research equipment, known as Oceanscope. The programme builds on a more than 20-year relationship with University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science that benefits from a cruise ship’s consistent itinerary to create a perfect and cost-effective way for scientists to gather and measure ocean circulation dynamics.
Guests can enjoy one of the world’s top destinations for incredible wildlife and biodiversity whilst embracing the beautiful and unspoilt white sandy beaches of Gardner Bay. The daily agenda will include making friends with iguanas at the enchanting Dragon Hill, snorkelling alongside sea turtles at Daphne Island and taking in the breath-taking views of the undiscovered archipelago.
The 10-night Galapagos Islands Outer Loop fly/cruise on Celebrity Flora departing 28 February 2020 starts from £8,309 per person in a Deluxe Suite including return flights from London Heathrow, based on two people sharing.
