Smart Voyager Certification

As one of Ecuador's leading conservation organizations, Conservacion y Desarrollo developed the Smart Voyager sustainable tourism certification program, which awards its seal of approval to tour boat operators and hotels in Ecuador who meet a set of strict conservation standards for protecting the environment, wildlife and the well-being of workers and local communities.

Discover Galapagos on board the finest small ship available. The Celebrity Xperience allows the more discerning traveler to experience one of the world’s greatest natural treasures in the comfort of an elegant and unique cruise and expedition vessel. The Celebrity Xperience offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service and was designed to meet the exacting demands of a luxury cruise.

In designing her layout we chose to compromise on cabin numbers in order to provide our passengers with unrivalled cabin space and ample social areas. The Celebrity Xperience is unique in offering the generous accommodation of a larger vessel, while preserving the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller yacht.

Whether you are snorkeling with sea lions, watching a blue-footed booby feed its young, or following a giant tortoise through the forest, the Galapagos Islands will surpass all expectations. And there is no better way to enjoy the wonders of the islands, than on board the Celebrity Xperience.

"We had a wonderful trip to South America and really appreciate all you did to help make it so good. The ship was great. Very comfortable, friendly crew, good and knowledgeable guides, and a very interesting trip in all respects. We were as pleased as we could be. All of the other arrangements you made went smoothly with essentially no problems." - John Porter, USA
