The first ship designed exclusively for the Galapagos Islands, Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Flora, will also feature a cruise industry first: A unique camping experience on the top deck of the luxury yacht that gives passengers an opportunity to dine, drink and even sleep under one of the most spectacular night skies in the world.
A "Galapagos Glamping Experience" will be offered on each sailing on Celebrity Flora.
Up to four cruisers who choose to pay a fee for the exclusive program will spend the night on the ship's top deck for a one-night-only adventure. Reservations include two luxury cabanas, one fitted with a double bed and the other for enjoying an alfresco meal.
The glamping experience was created to offer passengers a unique way to get closer to the natural surroundings of the Galapagos. A naturalist will also be available to highlight the stars and constellations visible from this region of the world directly from the cabana seats.
"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," said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises. "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."
Dinner with a View
Cruisers who book the glamping package will be treated to campfire-inspired culinary
delights -- from cocktails to carefully selected wines to s'mores. And while you gaze at the endless open skies above, a gourmet dinner is prepared. Campers will also welcome the spectacular sunrise with a full bed-side breakfast.
Celebrity Flora begins its inaugural season in 2019, sailing alternating 10- and 11-night cruises and tours throughout the Galapagos. Based in Baltra Island in the Galapagos, Celebrity Flora is set to debut May 26, 2019.
The exclusive "Galapagos Glamping" experience will be available upon request for a fee, on every Celebrity Flora sailing, subject to availability.
