Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Today, I'd like to tell our river cruise customers about the all-inclusive Galapagos Islands vacations of Celebrity Cruises. For more than 14 years, Celebrity has shown travelers the amazing sights of the Galapagos, Ecuador's wildlife-rich archipelago located about 600 miles west of mainland South America. In May 2019, the line debuts the Celebrity Flora, the first ship designed and built especially for cruising in the Galapagos.

Vacations To Go customers can save up to 81% off Celebrity's Galapagos itineraries, which begin in Quito, Ecuador, and range from 10 to 16 nights. Click here for departures and prices.

The upfront price of your Celebrity Galapagos sailing includes gourmet meals from menus crafted by the line's Michelin-starred chef, all beverages on board (including select wines, beer, spirits, soft drinks, bottled water, coffee and tea), Wi-Fi, guided shore excursions with naturalists, gratuities for onboard crew and guides, Galapagos National Park admission fees and the use of snorkeling equipment, wetsuits, binoculars and walking sticks.

Your pre-cruise stay in Quito -- with two hotel nights, meals and sightseeing -- also is covered in the upfront rate, along with round-trip air from the mainland to the ship in Baltra. Celebrity also offers itineraries that include post-cruise hotel stays and sightseeing in Santa Cruz in the Galapagos, or Lima, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley in Peru.

Launching on May 24, the 100-passenger Celebrity Flora is an all-suite ship offering the largest and most luxurious suites in the Galapagos Islands. Some accommodations feature Celebrity's new Infinite Verandas, where you push a button and a window lowers to open your entire cabin to the fresh air. Touch-panel automation allows you to control your suite's temperature, lighting and blinds. In-room amenities include a customized minibar, filtered water station, 24-hour dining (with full dinner service), free laundry service twice per sailing and complimentary backpacks and rain ponchos.

Two 1,288-square-foot Penthouse Suites come with indoor and outdoor living areas and a telescope for spying on sea lions or surveying the stars.

The Celebrity Flora will be one of the most eco-friendly ships in the Galapagos, using anchorless technology that keeps the ship in place while protecting the seabed. The vessel was designed in 3-D, allowing Celebrity to inspect every space in virtual reality and fine-tune the details. It features two restaurants -- including the Ocean Grill for alfresco dining -- a glass-enclosed observatory, a stargazing platform, a plunge pool and a hot tub. The Vista is an open-air retreat with 360-degree views, loungers and private cabanas, while Darwin's Cove and the Naturalist Center provide plenty of information about the Galapagos and its wildlife.

Guests go ashore in Zodiacs designed for 12 travelers each, in small-group explorations led by expert naturalists. During those excursions, you'll meet the remarkable wildlife of these remote islands: frigate birds showing off 7-foot wingspans, waved albatrosses gliding gracefully across the sky and 5-foot-long iguanas sunning on the rocks. Snorkel amid sea lions and white-tip reef sharks, and get up close to lava lizards and giant tortoises.
