Day 1 - Baltra, Galapagos Islands

Arrive: Sun 22 December 2024 / Depart: Sun 22 December 2024 at 14:30

During World War II, Baltra served as a U.S. military base protecting the Panama Canal from enemy attack. Now the cactus-strewn landscapes of Baltra are home to the region's main airport and where you will meet the ship. After just a short bus and zodiac ride you will be aboard. Your luggage will be delivered straight to your stateroom, giving you the opportunity to explore the Celebrity Xpedition, a 296-foot mega-yacht and your home for the week.

Day 1 - Daphne Island, Galapagos

Arrive: Sun 22 December 2024 at 17:00 / Depart: Sun 22 December 2024 at 18:00

The cliff shore of the island is home for sea lions, pelicans, blue footed boobies and tropic bird. In addition, large schools of fish can be observed from the zodiac rides.

Day 2 - Puerto Egas, Santiago Island

Arrive: Mon 23 December 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Mon 23 December 2024 at 12:00

With its sandy beach and black rock, blue-water grottos this stop offers a taste of Galapagos geology, some great snorkeling, and an opportunity to see shore birds and Galapagos fur seals. Excursion options include a long walk along the shore to the grottos to see fur seals, followed by optional swimming and snorkeling or a shorter coastal walk, and optional swimming and snorkeling.

Day 2 - Rabida Island, Galapagos Islands

Arrive: Mon 23 December 2024 at 15:00 / Depart: Mon 23 December 2024 at 19:00

The landscapes of this small island are visually stunning. It’s the top of an old volcanic cone bathed in crimson. The rocks and sand are hued brilliant red and sit amid coves of clear aqua blue water. A short hike up a steep hill provides for several spectacular overlooks, while you search the high cactus for finches and other birds. A Zodiac ride along the coast is also an option, as guests look for sea lions, fur seals, and birds. A brackish lagoon just behind the landing site sometimes provides an extraordinary opportunity?to get up close and personal with flamingos—a photographer’s dream, when it happens. A swim off the beach or snorkel along the shore afterwards is just the way to end the day.

Day 3 - Punta Moreno, Isabela Island

Arrive: Tue 24 December 2024 at 07:00

A prized stop along Isabela’s coastline. It is a sheltered inlet and one of the westernmost points in the Galapagos. A scenic zodiac ride offers excellent wildlife viewing and access to a rich mangrove ecosystem. Blue-footed boobies, pelicans, and nesting flightless cormorants perch on small rocky islands in the Bay. Penguins often pop up when you least expect it and nearby blue-footed boobies dive into the sea like missiles. The Zodiacs carefully cruise into the shallower reaches of the ecosystem to look for rays, sea turtles, and schools of fish. Great blue herons and Galapagos hawks can also be seen within the branches of the mangroves.

Day 3 - Punta Moreno, Isabela Island

Depart: Tue 24 December 2024 at 19:00

Tagus Cove on Isabela has historically provided shelter for wayfarers and was one of the places Charles Darwin visited in 1835. A strenuous hike up the side of a volcanic tuff cone brings us to a wondrous view of Darwin’s Lake, where debate still rages as to the origin of the water (ask your Naturalist). Along the way, finches flit among the trees and the island’s craggy geologic features come into view. A stunning overlook to the other side of the island ends the trail. In addition, experienced snorkelers are availed a deep-water snorkel here and if conditions cooperate, it can be spectacular, filled with sea turtles, fish, penguins, cormorants and the possibility of seeing marine iguanas feeding underwater on algae.

Day 4 - Sullivan Bay, Santiago

Arrive: Wed 25 December 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Wed 25 December 2024 at 12:00

Here you have the opportunity for a morning hike over a blackened landscape that is nothing less than a geologic wonderland. At every step, the hardened twists and turns of lava that flowed during a volcanic eruption in the 1900s are visible. Collapse craters, hornitos, and lava cactus dot the trail and where black pahoehoe lava flows between high piles of red volcanic debris (scoria cones). It resembles a strange Martian landscape. A short Zodiac ride along the coast provides additional viewing of the island’s interesting geology along with the opportunity to look for blue-footed boobies, sea turtles, and more.

Day 4 - Bartolome, Galapagos

Arrive: Wed 25 December 2024 at 13:00 / Depart: Wed 25 December 2024 at 19:00

We’ve taken a page out of Darwin’s Red Notebook and learned that to be relevant—to keep up with the times—we have to evolve to fit perfectly into the ever-changing world around us. More specifically, the environment around us. With 10 years in the Galapagos, we’ve learned and evolved our vacations to meet the needs of the modern explorer. We’ve adapted to bring you updated luxuries that elevate your experience in this precious archipelago to the next level. The way we see it, the Galapagos Islands may be primitive, but your vacation there doesn’t have to be.

Day 5 - Las Bachas, Santa Cruz

Arrive: Thu 26 December 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Thu 26 December 2024 at 12:00

A beautiful white sand beach on the northern coast of Santa Cruz Island. The name “Las Bachas” comes from the mispronunciation of the word “barges” by the local population during the 1950s when WWII barges broke their moorings and ran aground on the beach. This is also one of the largest nesting areas of the Pacific Green Sea Turtle in the Galapagos. A short beach walk brings you to a pond to look for flamingos and other shorebirds. Afterwards, this is a fantastic beach to relax, go for a walk, swim, and maybe practice snorkeling.

Day 5 - North Seymour

Arrive: Thu 26 December 2024 at 13:00 / Depart: Thu 26 December 2024 at 21:30

North Seymour Island is just north of Baltra and was formed through a series of sporadic uplifts. It took about a million years for the island to reach its current level. Now above the sea, the layers of lava that originally erupted underwater have created a low-lying island packed with wildlife. The island is home to the largest nesting colony of frigatebirds in the Galapagos along with blue-footed boobies, finches, land iguanas, marine iguanas, and sea lions. A hike along shore and into the island’s interior brings you up close and personal to just about everything the island has to offer. You can also choose to go on a short Zodiac ride along the coast to search for fur seals, sea lions, and red-billed tropic birds. And for the more adventurous and experienced, jump in for a deep-water snorkel.

Day 6 - Puerto Baquerizo, San Cristobal

Arrive: Fri 27 December 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Fri 27 December 2024 at 12:00

Here we have the opportunity to visit the small waterfront town of Puerto Baquerizo, the administrative capital of the islands. Excursion options include a tour of a local interpretation center and time for shopping or a fast-paced long walk to view scenic vistas, followed by a visit to the interpretation center.

Day 6 - Punta Pitt (San Cristobal)

Arrive: Fri 27 December 2024 at 15:30 / Depart: Fri 27 December 2024 at 18:00

Pitt Point is located on the northeastern tip of San Cristobal Island. After disembarking onto the small greensand beach, you'll hike up to a plateau, where the view and landscape are so spectacular it is well worth the effort. A steep gully leads up the cliff to a breeding ground for all three varieties of boobies: red-footed, blue-footed, and Nazca. It’s one of the few places in the Galapagos where you can see all three species nesting together.

Day 7 - Puerto Ayora, Galapagos

Arrive: Sat 28 December 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Sat 28 December 2024 at 19:00

Santa Cruz is the second-largest island in the Galapagos and home to Puerto Ayora (the largest town in the islands). In 1959, the Ecuadorian government declared all the islands, except areas already colonized, as a national park. In the same year, the Charles Darwin Foundation was founded to promote scientific research and ensure the conservation of the Galapagos. In 1992, the waters surrounding the Galapagos were declared a marine reserve. Here, you have the opportunity to visit a giant tortoise reserve in the lushly vegetated highlands, where the animals roam free in their natural habitat. On another excursion, a short drive through town brings you to the Galapagos Park Service giant tortoise breeding station and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Afterwards there is time to wander through the lovely streets of Puerto Ayora for some shopping.

Day 8 - Baltra, Galapagos Islands

Arrive: Sun 29 December 2024 at 07:00 / Depart: Sun 29 December 2024

During World War II, Baltra served as a U.S. military base protecting the Panama Canal from enemy attack. Now the cactus-strewn landscapes of Baltra are home to the region's main airport and where you will meet the ship. After just a short bus and zodiac ride you will be aboard. Your luggage will be delivered straight to your stateroom, giving you the opportunity to explore the Celebrity Xpedition, a 296-foot mega-yacht and your home for the week.

Celebrity Flora From Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity Flora is the first ship of its kind to be built especially for the Galápagos Islands. This 100 passenger all-suite mega-yacht features our innovative outward-facing concept—designed to ensure the destination remains the center of attention during your sailing. Inspired by the islands and built with natural materials, the ship merges seamlessly with the surroundings, giving you a feeling of total immersion. To bring you an even more in-depth experience, certified naturalists from the Galápagos National Park are on board to guide the journey. Proving you can practice responsible tourism and deliver ultimate luxury at the same time, Celebrity Flora was built with the latest environmental technologies. The dynamic positioning system allows the mega-yacht to remain on station without dropping anchors, protecting the seabed—and the solar panels supplement electricity, reducing emissions. The result is one of the most eco-friendly ships sailing anywhere—just one reason Celebrity Flora was voted “Best Overall Cruise Ship” in 2019.
