Celebrity Xploration is a ship that maintains the exceptional standards you expect of a Celebrity cruise, delivered via a highly intimate and sociable setting. Expect a luxurious combination of extravagant travel and astonishing exploration. Experience one of the world’s most incredible environments, as Xploration transports you to the Galapagos Islands. Highly exclusive, intimate and luxurious, this truly is a trip to be treasured.
Aboard Celebrity Xploration, experience a sense of community that can only be achieved with a ship this small. Built to transport and indulge no more than sixteen guests, the vessel provides an intimate setting in which to relax, unwind and exalt in all that the Galapagos can offer. With intuitive, industry-leading service, you are guaranteed an exceptional voyage like no other.
The cabins are split between Suites and Ocean View Staterooms. Spacious enough to be a comfortable place to relax after the day’s exertions, each room is also cosy enough to feel like a home away from home.
The Junior Suites are a spacious, 180 square foot space that features a convertible king size bed, large picture window and a private, secluded veranda. Expect premium bathrobes, a flat screen television and complimentary use of wetsuits and snorkel equipment, all included.
The Elite Ocean View Staterooms are slightly larger at 190 square foot, with the same features and amenities. They come without a veranda as standard, but still enjoy a large picture window with sensational ocean views.
The main dining area is known simply as The Dining Room, and is located on the Weather Deck. Serving throughout the day, it begins with a sumptuous buffet breakfast of freshly cooked classics, moves on to equally inspired lunchtime delights and ends with an a la carte and buffet combination for dinner.
There is also an Al Fresco option for dining, which allows you to take your food under an open-air shade canopy. The place to visit for a ‘Early Riser’ continental breakfast, this beautiful space is open to the elements. It occasionally sees dinner served too, creating a truly authentic and distinctive cruise experience.
The recreational focal point of Celebrity Xploration is undoubtedly the excursions you take upon reaching the Galapagos Islands. The awe-inspiring trips off-board give you an unparalleled experience of the location that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution. As you immerse yourself in the environment of this stunning archipelago, you may come face-to-face with its extraordinary residents, from reptiles, to birds, to crustaceans. A truly memorable and life-changing event.
The Lounge Bar is a great place to take stock, with documentaries regularly played on television, cosy spots to curl up and read, and daily briefings held each day. There is a full bar service, with drinks included on all voyages and a selection of comfortable, chic chairs and sofas on which to sit back and relax.
Out on the Sun Deck, you can soak up the rays and take in the views. The perfect spot for relaxation, grab one of the comfy sun lounger chairs and watch the world glide by. If you fancy a dip, then why not jump in the ship’s jacuzzi? This is an amazing place for whale spotting, star gazing and simply sitting back and taking it easy.
