Celebrity Flora has not only rewritten the book on Galápagos luxury, but she's torn it up and thrown it over the side! This stunning, purpose-built Galápagos cruise ship is the most luxurious and high-tech large yacht in the Galápagos fleet. Featuring all-suite accommodation, Celebrity Flora brings Galápagos luxury right up to date and also gives a glimpse of the future.
Stunning accommodation, with the “wow” factor Every cabin on Celebrity Flora is a suite, and all feature a personal suite attendant, private balcony, mini-bar, in-room filtered water system, 24-hour in-suite service, full in-suite dining service… there's too much to list here!
Every room features a state-of-the-art room automation system that brings full control of every amenity to your fingertips. Thoughtful extra touches include binoculars in your suite, sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, aloe vera soother, and more. There's even a pillow menu, ensuring a perfect sleep.
For the ultimate Galápagos adventure, why not upgrade to a Premium or Royal Suite? For a trip-of-a-lifetime, the Penthouse Suite occupies the entire width of the ship, offering an unbroken view out across the stern from its remarkable floor-to-ceiling windows and private balcony. Other upgrade suites include "infinity balconies" - where with the touch of a button you can open your panoramic window and convert your room into a breathtaking opening onto the Galápagos.
Stunning spaces to eat, relax, and unwind Social areas on Celebrity Flora are no less indulgent than her suites. The Discovery Lounge and Bar is the perfect place to relax with a pre-dinner drink. It's also where you will gather with your like-minded passengers to watch briefings from the highly-experienced onboard naturalists who will bring the Galápagos to life for you.
Dining is a stand-out experience. As well as in-suite private dining you can join fellow guests in the Seaside restaurant. Here you will enjoy mouthwatering international and local specialties made with the freshest local produce, while enjoying unrivalled views thanks to the restaurant's panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows.
Outside spaces are no less indulgent. Why not head up to the observation deck and enjoy a cocktail at the outside bar? Or choose from a shady or full-sun position in the outdoor lounge?
For guests looking for some tranquillity, the Observatory houses a library with floor-to-ceiling windows and comfortable armchairs.
Exploring the Galápagos Despite her outstanding luxury, Celebrity Flora recognises that the Galápagos Islands are the real stars of the show. Designed specifically for the islands, Flora has been fitted with state-of-the-art equipment that minimises her impact on the ecosystems, while letting you get closer than ever before. For example, she has been equipped with a Dynamic Positioning System that allows her to remain stationary without the need to drop anchors that can damage the sea bed.
The dedicated Marina at the stern of the ship makes boarding her fleet of zodiacs (known in Galápagos as "pangas") quick, safe and comfortable, allowing you to spend more time in and around the islands. Guests are always accompanied by a professional Galápagos naturalist guide, with a maximum of 16 guests per guide. This ensures an intimate and in-depth experience of the islands and their wildlife for everyone.
Excursions include island landings, panga rides, snorkeling and swimming, both from the ship and the shore, and much, much more. You can even enjoy an astronomical tour of the equatorial sky from the ship's unique Star Gazing platform.
You have a choice of two Galápagos itineraries with Celebrity Flora - the Inner Loop and the Outer Loop. Both offer excellent experiences of the Galápagos but have their unique flavors. If you are unsure as to which would suit your needs better, please contact one of our Galápagos travel advisors today to learn more about each of them.
Our Comments What can we say, other than "wow"! The Flora does re-write the book on luxury and service in Galápagos. We love her high-tech environmental systems, so crucial in protecting the delicate habitats of Galápagos. But we also love her stunning suites, fabulous service, and beautiful itineraries. It's rare you get the chance to sail on a brand new, purpose-built super-luxury Galápagos ship… so if you can, you should secure your booking right away. Oh, and if it's a special occasion cruise, do try and get either a Royal Suite or the Penthouse - they are simply remarkable.

Sustainability on board the Flora
At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.
The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.
But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay.

Food & Drinks on board the Flora
The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.
You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.
Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.
