Celebrity Xploration CATAMARAN

What is this?

The Celebrity Xploration yacht (formerly Athala) is a luxury catamaran that combines all of the comforts and amenities (e.g. Jacuzzi) of a larger yacht with the relaxed exclusivity of a small vessel. It sits proudly among the very best yachts that operate at the Galapagos Islands. The social areas have a very comfortable and homely feel with attention to detail, some rooms have private balcony, and adjoining rooms are available for families (if requested in advance). Another real plus is the presence of a cruise Director aboard to ensure extra smooth running of the trip and 4 double kayaks available for use!

Group transfers to/from major hotels in Quito and Guayaquil is also included, as is VIP lounge access at Baltra Airport.

The Celebrity Xploration yacht operates an alternating Galapagos itinerary both of which are interesting options, and it is also possible to combine itineraries into a longer 15 day Galapagos cruise.
