Our Great Galapagos Adventure by thegaspars2

This was a great adventure and we loved every minute. There is a 2 meter distance you are required to maintain between you and the wildlife, however no one explained this to the animals so be prepared for some amazing up close encounters. This ship is a great choice for teens through active seniors without mobility issues. Although it was not a problem for us, if you're prone to motions sickness come prepared.

Put it on Your Bucket List! by JerichoGirl

I was in the Galapagos in 1993, it is still very similar to my 1st trip 25 years ago. You will not be disappointed, bring good walking shoes (or hiking boots) and be prepared to walk on lava rocks in some areas. The ship did provide walking sticks if you need one. Bring a great zoom lens, you will be thrilled if you buy a 60x zoom. Be prepared to take LOTS of pics, everything is a picture opportunity. Be in the moment and enjoy nature. Thank goodness the wifi is very slow on the ship it really makes you unplug.

Book now! Celebrity is going to decommision the smaller catamarans and use the 100 passenger ships as the norm (I believe you have about a year to still book the smaller catamarans). This smaller way of cruising is excellent for seeing and experiencing the Galapagos Islands.

Pack extra batteries/memory cards for your camera and don't forget an underwater camera too!
