Trip Overview

Taryn Daley and Alexis Leeming of Admiral Travel invite you to join them on a bucket list adventure to the land that inspired Darwin - The Galapagos Islands - aboard the Celebrity Xpedition.
Ecuador is a land of volcanoes, rainforests, colonial architecture, Inca ruins and Indian markets. But its most precious jewels are the wild and rugged UNESCO-protected Galapagos Islands, their name synonymous with the celebration of the diversity of species on Earth.
When you set foot aboard the state-of-the-art 100-passenger Celebrity Xpedition in the Galapagos Islands, be prepared for an experience like no other. Filled with indulgences, including room service, in-suite dining, massage services, complimentary plush bathrobes, a fitness room, nightly lectures by certified naturalists from the Galapagos National Park (who are on board during your entire vacation), and live music in the Discovery Lounge, you’ll experience the Galapagos Islands in style.
