Celebrity Xploration

February 2018 - 7 Night Galapagos Southern Loop (Baltra Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Xploration

Put it on Your Bucket List!

I was in the Galapagos in 1993, it is still very similar to my 1st trip 25 years ago. You will not be disappointed, bring good walking shoes (or hiking boots) and be prepared to walk on lava rocks in some areas. The ship did provide walking sticks if you need one. Bring a great zoom lens, you will be thrilled if you buy a 60x zoom. Be prepared to take LOTS of pics, everything is a picture opportunity. Be in the moment and enjoy nature. Thank goodness the wifi is very slow on the ship it really makes you unplug.

Norwegian Pearl

April 2015 - 31 Night Panama Canal & Alaska (Miami To Seattle) Cruise on Norwegian Pearl

Miami to LA Panama Canal Cruise on NCL's The Pearl

First off I'd like to say that 17 days on a cruise boat is way too long, but to do the Panama Canal right there was no way around it. We loved our cabin, a mini suite #11150 top cabin floor on the very back of the ship, little wind and fantastic views.

The day going through the Panama Canal was wonderful, especially since you could sit on the balcony and watch the entire process. The TV in the room had a channel with a web cam showing the ship from the front so we could see both ends at the same time, pretty great.

Freestyle cruising is the way to go, eat anytime (we never had to wait for a table and only 2 of the restaurants require "dressing up" (capri's for women, men in pants-jeans OK with a collared shirt, no open toed shoes for the guys, otherwise shorts and flip flops were good for all the other restaurants.

The crowd on the ship was older, canes, walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, so sometimes things go slow, a little too slow.

We were excited about the ports in Columbia, Guatemala and Costa Rica, but they were not that great and the distance to do anything was far. The ports in Mexico were much better except for Puerta Chiapas (which we have no idea why they stop there).

If you need a LONG vacation but only have 17 days... go on a cruise...you will feel like you have been gone for 2 months.

JerichoGirl's Tips

Celebrity Xploration Celebrity Xploration - Book now! Celebrity is going to decommision the smaller catamarans and use the 100 passenger ships as the norm (I believe you have about a year to still book the smaller catamarans). This smaller way of cruising is excellent for seeing and experiencing the Galapagos Islands.
Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - Lotus Garden a restaurant on the ship had amazingly good Chinese food, the pot stickers were delicious. Cagney's had the best filet I had ever eaten. Two pools plenty of room for everyone.
