Celebrity cruise revolution continues with unveiling of exploration ship Celebrity Flora

Celebrity Cruises continues its stunning revolution in ship design with the unveiling of Celebrity Flora, designed expressly to explore for the awe-inspiring Galapagos Islands.

One of the most energy-efficient ship of its size in the diverse archipelago, the 100-guest Celebrity Flora will offer seamless sea-to-shore transportation, and anchorless technology that maintains the ship’s position while protecting the sensitive sea floor.

Innovative outward-facing design gives guests 360-degree views of the islands, while personal suite attendants, new dining venues, an open-air stargazing platform and expert-led ecological seminars will round out the modern luxury holiday experience.

“Celebrity Flora marks another example of our revolutionary ship design by allowing the destination and its environment to influence every decision we’ve made,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president of Celebrity Cruises.

“From the luxurious all-suite accommodations to industry-first, eco-friendly innovations, we’ve created a ship that brings a new level of luxury, sustainability and natural exploration to the region. Guests will feel as though they’re boarding a high-end yacht for a week of unparalleled adventures, and they are.”

Enrique Ponce de León, Ecuador’s Minister of Tourism, throwing his support behind Celebrity, said: “Celebrity Flora will undoubtedly mark a very important milestone in the tourism development of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, offering high quality and sustainable tourism.”

The natural beauty of the islands, the diversity and uniqueness of the species that it harbours earned this archipelago the reputation of being a living laboratory of evolutionary processes still in progress. The region made room for the development of a large number of flora and fauna that do not exist anywhere else in the world, making the Galapagos a very unique place of global importance for the common heritage of humanity.

Celebrity Flora will sail from Baltra year-round offering two unique 7 night itineraries, making her first sailing on 26 May, 2019. Each of these itineraries can be complimented with 10, 11 or 15 night packages including pre and post cruise tours in Quito, the capital of Ecuador and to Machu Picchu in Peru.
