Celebrity Cruises has just unveiled another revolution in ship design that comes in the form of Celebrity Flora, an expedition ship due to sail around the Galapagos Islands.
The 100-guest vessel will be one of the most energy-efficient ships of its size in the archipelago and will offer guests seamless sea-to-shore transportation, including anchoress technology that keeps the ship in place without damaging the sea floor.
Celebrity note that the Galagapgos has piqued the curiosity of adventurers for centuries making it one of the most unique places on the globe.
Celebrity Flora will feature the cruise line’s outward-facing design and will virtually erase boundaries to bring the destination closer to guests onboard.
Additionally, educational, research-based programming will give travellers a chance to continue learning about the wildlife-rich islands; Darwin’s Cove and the Naturalist Center provide a wealth of information on the destination, and Discovery Lounge will hold Naturalist presentations and excursion information.
While onboard, passengers can unwind in the Sunset Lounge, relax in the open-air hideaway with 360-degree views called The Vista, gaze out of the floor-to-ceiling windows in the Observatory, enjoy a guided astronomy tour or watch the starry skies on their own from the Stargazing Platform.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served daily in the Seaside Restaurant whereas The Ocean Grill offers a casual dining space with panoramic views and Dinner Under the Stars.
Celebrity Flora will boast all-suite accommodations with over-sized bathrooms and Infinite Verandas and guests will have their very own personal suite attendant to tend to their every need.
The ship’s two Penthouse Suites are the largest in the Galapagos with separate indoor and outdoor living areas, customizable lighting and shades, and a telescope.
There are also Royal Suites, Ultimate Sky Suites with Infinite Veranda, Premium Sky Suites with Infinite Veranda, and Sky Suites with Infinite Veranda.
For those passionate about the environment, the ship will host a new advanced propulsion system, hull configuration and specially designed diesel engines that set it apart from other ships in its class.
Flora will also have a dynamic positioning system that allows it to stay in position without anchoring, with zero speed stabilizers that promise smooth sailing throughout the entire journey.
The ship also offers in-room water filtration stations and convert sea water and air conditioning condensation into pure, fresh drinkable water, which reduces the need for plastics onboard.
Celebrity Flora will sail from Baltra year-round, making her first voyage on May 26th 2019.
