10 Reasons to Cruise the Galapagos Islands

Two of our lucky team members were recently given the opportunity to cruise on board Celebrity Cruises' amazing purpose-built expedition vessel, Celebrity Flora, around the Galapagos Islands.

Celebrity Flora was built specifically for the region, with a maximum of only 100 guests permitted on board, as per government regulations in the Galapagos Island region. This limit on ship capacity makes for not only a much more intimate and personal expedition cruise experience, but also allows for the conservation of the beautiful islands and reefs in the area. When Katy and Emma - our lovely Cruise Connoisseurs here at Panache Cruises - set foot on board Celebrity Flora just two weeks ago, the vessel was only around 75% full. This meant they felt like they had the whole ship to themselves - and the islands too! Read more about Katy's personal experiences in her recent blog post.
