Review summary

This was an incredible small ship experience in a magical location. Highly recommend!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We booked the before and after in Quito. With this option you will be flown to Baltra on a chartered jet and Celebrity ensures you move smoothly through the airport.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Plenty of great food and drink, including a lot of regional dishes that were delicious. On the Flora everything is included. You have to try a Yellow Warbler, delicious rum based drink.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
To be honest, there's so many excursions (2 or 3 per day) there's not a lot of on board down time. The crew provided informative talks, a crew music show, and a 2 part BBC Galapagos film.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a traditional veranda room. These are smaller than the "infinite" veranda rooms and lack the sea view tub, but we like being able to sit on a real veranda.

Ship tip

Be prepared to be very active. You will do a minimum of 2 excursions a day and you don't want to miss them.
