The Galapagus -- What a treat!

Sail Date: March 01, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Great trip for young and old. 4 generations went and all had a good time from the snorkelling to the iguanas litterally at our feet. Spring break saw 12 pre teens on the ship and they all had fun together. Plenty of family groups and older couples. The guides were fantastic and offered 3 different levels of excursions in the am and pm. Crew was great and someone always there to help. EVERYTHING included in the price even the alcohol so NO bill at the end!! I would not take anyone younger the 10 due to the trips and walking and the smallness of the ship which does not offer any child care as it is an expedition not a cruise. Beware of staying in Quito as it is high and afew of us suffered altitude sickness. Celebrity coul not have improved this trip.

Pros: 90 passengers / 60 crew!! all inclusive!! wonderfull views of nature up close

Cons: ??? nothing except altitude sickness in Quito - proir to going to Baltra

Recommends Celebrity Xpedition? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was in perfect shape and the crew was always painting etc when everyone went ashore to keep up the condition of it.
Food and Dining
What choice and such wonderfully prepared and presented. Wait staff were very highly trained
Cabin / Stateroom
You never spent much time in the cabin for fear of missing something!
Service and Staff
They made everyone feel special and were always willing to help
We loved the crossing of the equator performance
Three levels of activities offered am and pm and the option to stay behind. Not many stayed behind!! Mainly because of sunburn!! Naturalists were great and the evening briefing was very helpful on the next days events.
