Explore the Galapagos Islands Onboard Celebrity Flora

Introducing Celebrity FloraSM, the first ship designed and built specifically with the Galapagos in mind. Every space, including the all-suites accommodations, features Celebrity Cruises’ innovative outward-facing stateroom concept, getting guests closer to the destination than ever before. With every state-of-the-art technology, innovative materials and design — Celebrity Flora is one of the most eco-friendly and environmentally conscious ships sailing the Galapagos today.

Celebrity Flora offers the largest and most luxurious accommodations in the Galapagos Islands. In fact, every stateroom on board is a suite that includes an unrivaled array of indulgent design features, services, and amenities. Full room automation that lets you control everything with the touch of a button. Premium linens and bathrobes. Personal Suite Attendants. Chocolates and bath products sourced locally from Ecuador. Integrated drinking water filtration systems in every suite.  On Celebrity Flora, unwinding after a day of adventures in the islands is easier than ever.


Guests that opt for a Penthouse Suite will be indulged with the largest, most luxurious suite sailing the Galapagos islands. With up to 1,288 total square feet of indulgent home-away-from-home comfort, these lush havens are the ultimate complement to the extraordinary destination. The Royal Suite is a modern refuge thoughtfully designed to pamper guests and highlight the destination. Experience 559 of total square feet featuring a separate living area, bedroom, and private veranda. New to the Galapagos Islands is the Infinite VerandaSM. A key transformational element, this game-changer virtually takes your entire room to the water’s edge with the touch of a button. The Sky Suite with Veranda offers a total of 330 square feet, including a private, spacious (84 square feet) veranda. The signature Cashmere CollectionSM Bedding invites you to sink into it. In fact, it’s so indulgent, we dare you to have a better night’s sleep anywhere else.


Galapagos Glamping is the first sunset-to-sunrise experience of its kind in the Galapagos Islands. Enjoy an exclusive and delectable dinner featuring campfire-themed delights and cocktails. Experience a naturalist-guided stargazing session under the constellations of both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, as you sail along the equator. Sleep under the stars in a cabana that transforms into a comfortable double bed. Wake up to the sunrise and a private breakfast before you leave for your daily island adventures.

Celebrity Flora’s custom-built Novurania tenders will transport you in comfort and style. They feature stairs with a metal railing that fits flush against the open aft, creating a seamless ship to shore transportation system that makes it even easier to go exploring the islands—a first in the Galapagos. Each tender also features a hydraulic ramp that makes wet landings in the islands much more convenient—and less wet. It can also be used as a platform that makes getting on and off for snorkeling much easier. Other features not found on the standard tender include storage space for snorkel gear and interior seating, in case you’re not comfortable sitting on the sides of the tender. They also feature rubber grips on the sides for a comfortable place to hold onto while you explore the islands.

Hungry? When it’s time to take a break from exploring for a bite to eat, Ocean Grill is the place to be. From grilling up the highest quality sustainable seafood for lunch, to the spectacular Dinner Under the Stars, Ocean Grill is the envy of any destination restaurant – on land or at sea.

After you indulge in a delicious meal, the Discovery Lounge is where you’ll be socializing, unwinding, and being entertained by performances and conversations with your crew and fellow explorers.

Wondering how you can end your night? The stars in the night sky over the Galapagos Islands are a brilliant sight to see. There’s no better place to witness these celestial marvels than on the Stargazing platform. Enjoy guided stargazing or simply take in the spectacle on your own.

On the first day of your journey, you’ll be greeted at the airport by a Celebrity Cruises representative, and transferred to the JW Marriott hotel in Quito.

Celebrity Flora marks an evolutionary turning point in the approach to ship design—creating a sense of being truly immersed in the destination, instead of just visiting it.

All this to ensure that your visit to these primitive islands is anything but. What are you waiting for?
