Celebrity Cruises will offer guests the opportunity to camp on the deck of its new luxury yacht in the Galapagos when it enters service in mid-2019.
Celebrity Flora, the first ship ever designed specifically for the Galapagos Islands, will provide four guests per night the top deck experience beneath the stars. Cabanas by day will covert to double beds by night.
“Our new Galapagos Glamping experience gives guests an incredible opportunity to experience the destination the ship was built for, on a whole new level, under the millions of stars above,”said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.
The experience includes two luxuriously inviting cabanas, one fitted with a double bed for sleeping, and the other for enjoying an al fresco meal. Celebrity Cruises says its Galapagos Glamping was created to “break down the walls and bring guests closer than ever to this stunning destination. To help guests fully appreciate the breathtaking views this experience offers, a naturalist will also be available to highlight the stars and constellations visible from this region of the world directly from the cabana seats.”
Cuisine for the experience will feature “campfire-inspired” delights, ranging from cocktails to wines and s’mores. Participants will also be served an exclusive dinner as part of Galapagos Glamping, along a full bed-side breakfast.
Celebrity Flora will operate alternating 10- and 11-night tours, and there is also the option for guests to select a 16-night itinerary— an inner loop and outer loop — to the region’s most stunning locales in 2019 and 2020.
Based in Baltra Island in the Galapagos, Celebrity Flora will make her debut sailing on 26 May 2019. Bookings are now open at www.celebritycruises.com/flora.
The Galapagos Glamping experience will be available upon request for a fee, on every Celebrity Flora sailing, subject to availability.
