Celebrity Cruises announce Galápagos expansion

Celebrity Cruises has announced its expanding its Galápagos fleet with the addition of two additional vessels.

The company is planning on acquiring Galápagos Islands tour operator Ocean Adventures which operates two ships, the 48-guest ship M/V Eclipse and the 16-guest catamaran M/C Athala II.

Ocean Adventures has 64 landing permits, and will grow the Galápagos fleet capacity for Celebrity Cruises by 65 percent. Celebrity has operated the 100-guest Celebrity Xpedition for more than 10 years in the Galápagos.

The expanded line-up means modern luxury travellers looking to experience the Galápagos Islands will be able to choose a ship whose size and intimacy suits their personal preference.

Guests can choose from a number of immersive explorations of the local culture, including local hotel stays, encounters with local residents, and unique tours. The fleet expansion also allows Celebrity Cruises’ guests to take advantage of new packages that celebrate the most breath-taking spots in Ecuador – such as the Andes Mountains – and Peru, where Machu Picchu and Amazon packages are enduringly popular.

As part of its commitment to the Galápagos Islands, Celebrity Cruises rigorously follows guidelines set by local authorities to protect the assets of the Ecuadorian archipelago, including the robust kaleidoscope of flora and fauna found there, like giant tortoises, prehistoric iguanas and blue-footed boobies.

The new ships will be renamed Celebrity Xperience and Celebrity Xploration
