Highlands Ranch Travel
A Quest to the Galápagos
Celebrity Cruises® transports you on an intimate journey to one of the world’s richest marine ecosystems: the Galápagos Islands. A double UNESCO World Heritage site, these dramatic volcanic islets grant endless entertainment as playful sea lions splash about while iconic blue-footed boobies stand proudly atop blackened rocks. Plus, the recent addition of two ships to the Celebrity Cruises® fleet gives you even more all-inclusive voyages to choose from as we plan your vacation of a lifetime.
Get Up Close and Personal
With Celebrity’s signature Xperiential Travel℠ program, we’ll bring you up close and personal to the Galápagos Islands’ allure.
Delve into the untamed wilderness of the Galápagos with shore excursions that are included in your voyage. On the island of Santa Cruz, you’ll contemplate the origin of species among experts at the Charles Darwin Research Station, explore the highlands where massive tortoises lumber in the wild and venture deep into underground tunnels sculpted by molten lava.
Complimentary gear and guided excursions transform a scenic cruise into an explorer’s delight. Seahorse-shaped Isabela Island, one of the most volcanically active destinations on Earth, sets the stage for an exhilarating trek among the foothills, with land iguanas and finches as your companions. Spot the unmistakable gait of Galápagos penguins and flightless cormorants from your nimble Zodiac, and snorkel in waters rich with marine life including sea turtles, manta rays and sea lions.
Just as nature’s laboratory will leave a lasting impression, we can create more meaningful moments when we arrange an escorted stay in Quito, Ecuador, before or after your cruise. Marvel over the magnitude of standing by Earth’s precise midpoint at the Middle of the World Park and Museum, and step beyond the stone façade of Iglesia Compañía de Jesús to stand in quiet awe among the shimmering details of its gilded interior.
A newly expanded fleet encompasses Celebrity Xpedition®, Celebrity Xperience℠ and the catamaran-style Celebrity Xploration℠, surrounding you with modern luxury as you venture into some of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. With six unique itineraries to select between northern and southern loops, we’ll arrange every last detail of your ultimate all-inclusive voyage to the Galápagos — ranging from seven to 15 nights.
While adventure runs strong on these voyages, your vacation is replete with modern luxury on Celebrity Cruises®. Twice-daily excursions chart land and sea, and everything you need is included, from snorkeling equipment and wetsuits to binoculars and walking sticks. Evenings are enriched by engaging conversations and lectures from an onboard Galápagos National Park expert, as well as indulgent fine-dining menus crafted by a Michelin-starred chef paired with free-flowing wine, beer, spirits and coffee. Seamless land transfers and deluxe accommodations, along with included gratuities, make your vacation completely effortless, leaving you free to experience culture and nature all in one journey.
