Celebrity Xploration


Imagine visiting the same islands Charles Darwin did on your very own private catamaran. You don’t have to imagine it, because we’ve created it for you. Celebrity Xploration® is a 16-passenger intimate journey that’s perfect for family get-togethers, getaways with friends, or small groups who want to explore together. Designed for off the beaten path discovery, you’ll discover hidden gems like Los Lobos (named for sea lions) and Kicker Rock (the very icon of the Galápagos). Of course, a luxury venture wouldn’t be complete without a cozy stateroom, with a window or veranda offering a personal view of the amazing archipelago; a personal refrigerator stocked with beverages of your choice; room service; complimentary snorkeling equipment and wet suits; and more.
