MIAMI — Celebrity Cruises has launched the first ship designed specifically for the Galapagos Islands.
An energy-efficient ship, the 100-guest Celebrity Flora will feature Celebrity’s signature outward-facing design concept, giving guests 360-degree views of the islands.
All-suite accommodations – including Sky Suites with Infinite Veranda – will offer service by personal attendants. Celebrity Flora also provides a glamping experience at sea, new dining venues, an open-air stargazing platform, expert-led ecological seminars and custom-designed Novurania yacht tenders.
Celebrity Flora provides the highest ratio of Certified Naturalists per guest (1:9) in the Galapagos, who will offer travelers an in-depth experience with certification by the Galapagos National Park.
Equipped with cutting-edge oceanographic research equipment known as Oceanscope, Celebrity Flora is the first vessel in the Galapagos to blend exploration and research. The system will track and map the region, while measuring sea-surface temperatures and gathering data critical to research prediction of El Niño and La Niña. Guests will be able to view the data through real-time visualizations onboard the ship, providing an opportunity to learn more about the Galapagos Islands region and its scientific importance.
