7 Night Galapagos Islands Inner Loop (Baltra Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 05, 2015
Ship: Celebrity Xpedition
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 601
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The Celebrity Xpedition was an exceptional cruise with a great itinerary and overall amazing experience of the Galapagos natural ecosystem, of the land, the geological transformation, of the range of life-forms in the water, the birds and land-animals.

There are two areas of improvement recommended:

1. No smoking should be enforced.  We were in the Penthouse Suite but a neighboring suite (602) had heavy smokers and their smoking was not curbed by the staff.  

2. Some of the "naturalists" were not very knowledgeable and also were rude or unfriendly - very unlike normal Celebrity experience.  Their boss was also grumpy, possibly unsuited for the job.

Comfortable but rocked a lot. Main issue was the excess second-hand cigarette smoke in the hallway and the outer deck from Suite 602. We did not understand why all the 602 transgressions were ignored.
