Typical Passengers

Joining sister ships Xpedition and Xperience, Celebrity Xploration is a good fit for eco-minded adult travellers who want to get up close and personal with the natural landscapes and wildlife of the Galapagos. Its tiny size means that you’re able to travel to more exotic destinations, taking part in adventurous excursions without leaving behind the luxury that Celebrity is famous for. 

Ship Amenities 

This ship is charter-only, suitable for small groups or families who want to go deeper into destinations like the Galapagos over a 7-day period. It’s a small catamaran, so you won’t find all of the flashy bells and whistles that you might expect on a larger ship. However, you can watch whales from the Sun Deck, top up your tan on a sun lounger, or sit down to learn more about the region from a team of onboard naturalists. There’s a small library on offer, as well as a selection of board games to keep you occupied as you sail from one intriguing destination to the next. Amenities include a dining area and bar, Jacuzzi and small shop next to the purser’s office where you can find a few sundries. The ship’s Lounge offers a relaxing interior perfect for cuddling up with a good book or watching a documentary with drink in hand. 

Cabin Amenities 

This intimate travel experience comes with your choice of eight luxurious staterooms, each offering either a window or veranda to make the most of the sweeping views. Rooms include two lower beds which can convert into a single Queen if desired, as well as plenty of storage space. Customise your night of sleep with a choice of soft or firm mattresses as well as a full pillow menu. Linens are high-quality, made from 100% Egyptian cotton with a 300-thread count. Standard amenities include a flat screen TV with movies available, a direct-dial telephone, personal safe, vanity desk with hair dryer, and individually controlled air conditioning. You can stay connected with Wi-Fi, available in all public areas, and of course the staff is always on hand to assist you with complimentary touches from beach towels to binoculars! 

Dining Options

Passengers onboard Celebrity Xploration are treated to a full meal service in the airy Dining Room, which serves a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All of the meals use fresh, locally sourced ingredients including sustainable seafood. If you prefer, you can enjoy your meals out on the deck with an open air shade canopy and specialty music to match your meal. Enjoy an Early Riser continental breakfast to get a jump on the day, or an exclusive Dinner Under the Stars experience on special evenings. Naturally, room service is available upon request should you wish to dine in private! 


Entertainment revolves around the excursions, led by expert naturalists certified by the Galapagos National Park. They’ll take you out in Zodiac boats to explore this beautiful archipelago, while preserving its habitat. In the evenings, you can chat to them about what’s planned for the next day, or enjoy briefings about the region. The ship’s lounge is open day or night for those who wish to read, engage in conversation with fellow passengers, or visit the bar for a refreshing cocktail. 

Sports and Wellness

This tiny ship may not have a full gym and spa, but you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get active during expert-led excursions. The Sun Deck is the primary area for rest and relaxation, with its plush sun loungers, teak accents and relaxing whirlpool hot tub to soothe tired muscles.
