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.

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.
This is a small ship in the Pacific. We did rock a lot, but the wave frequency was slow enough it didn't seem to be a problem for seasickness. I am not aware of anyone who had bad seasickness, but plan of bringing an ear patch if you tend to get sick.
The Xpedition never docks in port. You will always get off and on with an inflatable Zodiac boat. Staff are always there to assist you. The Zodiacs add to the adventure of you trip.
