Cruise 100 to Galapagos Islands
Guests of Celebrity xpetion.
It is a hidden gem in the celebrity fleet;
Take the advanced cruising style of the line to one of the most eco-efficient places
Different places on Earth.
The presence of celebrities in Galapagos may not be very good.
It takes much longer to keep secrets.
The line recently announced an ambitious plan to build a brand new cruise ship for adventure cruises in the Galapagos Islands.
Known as the Celebrity Flora, this 100-
Passenger ships will usher in a brand new category of ships for Celebrity Cruises and open up new options for past celebrity guests and those who want to travel to Galapagos cruises.
Lisa Lutoff said: "Celebrity Flora marks another example of our revolutionary ship design by allowing destinations and their environment to influence every decision we make --"
Perlo, President and CEO of celebrity cruise lines.
"All from luxury
Suite accommodation to industryfirst, eco-
Friendly innovation, we have created a ship that brings new levels of luxury, sustainability and natural exploration to the region.
"Celebrity Flora will take turns sailing for a week --
Long "inside" and "outside" ring cruises to the Galapagos Islands create the possibility for returnto-back 14-
The day's trip through the island was almost repeated by no port.
Designed for the Galapagos Islands, this ship will have huge floorsto-

The design on the front ensures that these islands will never be seen, and celebrities add some really cool technical features to the ship, like an anchor-free positioning system, it allows the vessel to stay in one place without using potentially damaged anchors;
Star viewing platform; in-
Room water filtration stations that eliminate demand for plastic bottled water; and eco-
Friendly engines that reduce fuel consumption and emissions at the same time.
"We are very pleased with the decision of the celebrity cruise company to build a cutting cruise --

Celebrity Flora will be equipped with board lectures and educational programs
It is equipped with boarding docks loaded with three Zodiac rafts at the same time.
This will greatly reduce the shipping time from the ship and allow guests to spend more time on shore.
Guests of the Galapagos Islands will enjoy the full adventure plan.

Building a new operating ship in Galapagos is not an easy task.
The area is one of the world's most regulated cruise destinations, everything
All the way to the food on board and the crew who provided the food
With a few exceptions, procurement must be made from Ecuador.

The early renderings I saw about the ship looked amazing.
Celebrities may be famous for their great fame.
Cruise to well

Celebrity Flora will begin her maiden voyage on May 29, 2019.
Reservations are open.
