Celebrity Cruises will be offering the ultimate glamping experience on-board Celebrity Flora, as she sails through the lush archipelago of the Galapagos.
Glamping in the Galapagos
The experience will be on Celebrity Flora’s top deck, where guests can dine, drink and sleep under the stars for the once-in-a-lifetime experience. The ship has been custom-built just for the Galapagos region, meaning that guests have the best viewing opportunities and experiences possible while on-board.
Up to four guests can book the experience, Galapagos Glamping, with reservations including two cabanas – one fitted with a double bed for sleeping and the other for enjoying a mouth-watering alfresco meal.
The experience offers guests a chance to witness the stunning night skies of the Galapagos first-hand, with close to zero light pollution in the region. This allows for the ultimate star gazing experience – the perfect opportunity to cosy up with loved ones and watch the night turn to day.
Food and beverages available during the experience include exclusive campfire-inspired delights, cocktails, carefully selected wines and s’mores, as well as a delicious dinner – all of which are part of the experience. In the morning, a full bed-side breakfast will also be available to enjoy as the sun rises in the stunning Galapagos region.
What’s more, a naturalist will be there to point out constellations like the Southern Cross and the Big Dipper, as well as talking about the surrounding nocturnal wildlife.
Celebrity Cruises President and CEO, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said:
“Celebrity Flora was specifically designed to bring our guests closer to the Galapagos Islands than ever before – from its outward-facing design that takes guests to the water’s edge, to the enhanced custom-designed Novurania yacht tenders. And now our new Galapagos Glamping experience gives guests an incredible opportunity to experience the destination the ship was built for, on a whole new level, under the millions of stars above.”
Celebrity Flora’s inaugural season
Celebrity Flora is due to make her maiden voyage in May 2019, when she will sail alternate ten- and 11-night tours, with the option to select a 16-night itinerary which comprises an inner and outer loop of the Galapagos.
She has been intimately designed to let you get closer to the unique, biodiverse region of the Galapagos, featuring eight decks, 1288-square-foot suites and space for up to 100 passengers.
The price has yet to be revealed for this once-in-a-lifetime, but we think it will be worth it! Would you like to experience glamping at sea on-board Celebrity Flora? Is the Galapagos on your bucket-list? Let us know in the comments below!
