Luxury & Science Aboard the Celebrity Flora

If a trip to the Galapagos Islands is on your bucket list it may be time for you to check out the Celebrity Flora. Celebrity Flora offers the largest and most luxurious accommodations of any ship sailing that particular itinerary... and then some!

Every stateroom on board the Celebrity Flora is a suite that includes an unrivaled array of indulgent design features, services, and amenities. There are exciting dining venues, an open-air stargazing platform, expert-led ecological seminars, and custom-designed Novurania yacht tenders, which create a seamless sea-to-shore experience. However, looking deeper, it is apparent that the Celebrity Flora is much more than a gorgeous luxury mega yacht.

Celebrity Cruises had the opportunity to blend exploration and research by making Celebrity Flora the first vessel in the Galapagos to be equipped with cutting-edge oceanographic research equipment, known as Oceanscope. The program builds on the relationship with University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science that benefits from a cruise ship’s consistent itinerary to create a perfect and cost-effective way for scientists to gather and measure ocean circulation dynamics. The system will track and map the region while measuring sea-surface temperatures and gathering data critical to research prediction of El Niño and La Niña. All findings gathered by Celebrity Flora will become a source data globally accessible to researchers as well as giving guests the opportunity to learn more about the region and its scientific importance.

Celebrity Flora will sail from Baltra year-round. Her first sailing just days away.
