This is a most incredible voyage, and you will sail with Celebrity Cruises, known for its highest standards of food and service!

 

Take a journey back in time with modern day luxuries

Many destinations promise visitors the chance to "step back into history." A Celebrity Xpedition to the Galapagos Islands perhaps best exemplifies that promise, as we take you to a destination that helped to shape one of the world's leading scientific doctrines.

Known as the inspiration for Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, this cluster of islands is so isolated that many of its creatures cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. From the giant tortoises to the marine iguanas and finches, the Galapagos islands afford you the chance to observe a living laboratory of adaptation.
