Galapagos Cruises from Celebrity Cruises
Travel back in time to the magical islands that enchanted Charles Darwin and inspired his studies. Six hundred miles west of Ecuador, for millions of years they have been home to plants and animals that have evolved and adapted to this unique environment. The islands are beautiful, but the true splendor comes from their unique place in the ecosystem and the opportunity you now have to encounter the past, face to face.
A trip to the Galapagos islands is so unique and so full of monumental experiences that you should never spend a moment thinking about logistics or details. Celebrity Cruises' Galapagos adventures are blissfully all-inclusive, free of worry and planned with Celebrity luxury down to the last detail. So you immerse yourself in centuries-old landscapes and rare bird sightings, or hang out with an immense 70-year old tortoise for the day. Celebrity Cruises has taken care of everything from pre-and post-cruise stays, flights, transfers, meals, beverages, shore excursions and more.
