Simmons Review - Galapagos Cruise Jan '17

Dialy excursions to individual islands.  Naturalists were most informative and easy to understand.  All questions were answered without hesitation.  All seemed to have a strong appreciation for their job.

Expert guided hikes and snorkeling, then return to pampered luxury on board Xpedition. All staff were delightful and helpful. Their only wish was for you to learn and enjoy every minute of the tour.

From the time we were met at the Quito airport until the time we departed Quito, Celebrity staff made this trip perfect.  Everything was right on time.  Service was warm and personal.  The trip was casual, yet elegant at the same time.  No need to dress up, but the dining room was lovely, staff were very attentive, the bar staff made all our drinks cheerfully and quickly.  The naturalists were with us on every shore excursions to explain all the magnificent birds, animals and plants, and always were looking out for our safety while we hiked or snorkeled.  The ship was immaculate and everything was well-organized and timely. I could not have asked for more and the whole trip exceeded our expectations in every way.

This cruise was everything Celebrity promised....... and more! The crew of the ship was awesome. Everyone was very friendly and did everything to make sure all of the guests were comfortable and happy. The naturalists were OUTSTANDING! No matter the situation, they were reassuring, patient, and supportive. The stops that we made optimized the kinds of animals and terrain that we experienced. It was worth every cent that we paid. I can't say enough good things about sailing on the Xpedition and the crew.

This WAS the trip of a lifetime.  With about 90 passengers, you get to know just about all your fellow travelers, and we made great friends.  The staff was also outstanding.  Special mention goes to bartender Ana, always prepared and always with a smile.

 

 Loved the snorkeling opportunities.  Excellent, informative naturalists (though sometimes things got a bit repetitive), and helpful presentations.  The walks can be a challenge, so invest in good trekking shoes before you go.  You may want to consider below the knee pants or knee pads, because falling on the lava rock would not be pleasant and you may want to kneel to take photos. Also loved having walking sticks available.

 

The ship is comfortable and enjoyable.  My only complaint is that the mattresses and pillows could be of a better quality.

1) The internet is VERY slow if you can get on at all. There should be a way that they can fix this. 2) I would recommend that if you have your own snorkeling mask, you bring it. The ones that they provide are a 1 size fits all style that doesn't.

Internet was very slow but it was good to unplug for a bit. I used the ships mask and snorkels and they were great but I'm a recreational snorkeler. There is a small ships store on board for a few gift type items and clothing but bring batteries if you need them and plenty of sun screen! nausea meds
