Celebrity Xperience

Celebrity Xperience - Galapagos Liveaboards - Dive Discovery Galapagos

Celebrity Xperience is an upscale expedition vessel that offers unparalleled levels of comfort and service. Large enough to travel the Pacific in comfort and safety, small enough to dock at remote ports and negotiate inter-island landings with agility, Celebrity Xperience is the perfect size for an expedition-style adventure and the choice for travelers who prefer the intimate, comfortable atmosphere and attentive service of a smaller boutique vessel to a larger cruise ship. She features outstanding open-air spaces, comfortable cabins, and spectacular al fresco dining.

Our 24 spacious staterooms accommodate up to 48 passengers – just half the number usually found on a ship this size. This means that passengers can enjoy the generous accommodation of a larger vessel, while preserving the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller yacht. Exploring with a small group of like-minded fellow travellers, guests can experience our unrivalled itineraries led by certified naturalist guides.

Our expert naturalist guides offer nightly briefings and lectures on the day’s discoveries and specific topics related to the islands.

Dining & Social

Passengers appreciate the “non-cruise” atmosphere aboard the Celebrity Xperience: informal and unregimented with a warm sense of camaraderie. While you might like to change out of your beach clothes for dinner, you won’t need a wardrobe any dressier than “smart casual” wear.

Indoor Dining
The Celebrity Xperience’s chic indoor dining area features panoramic windows, and all guests can be accommodated in one sitting. Our cuisine is a blend of international and local flavors, freshly prepared and served buffet-style. Whether it is a hearty breakfast, a themed lunch or a delicious dinner, guests can enjoy quality meals combined with efficient service and outstanding views.

Al Fresco Dining
The Celebrity Xperience is the only mid-size vessel in the Galapagos that serves a large proportion of its meals outside. Located at the stern of the ship, our al fresco dining area means that guests can savor a scrumptious meal with the islands’ stunning scenery as a backdrop. The al fresco area also features a bar, which is open at lunchtime and in the evening.

The main lounge provides a relaxed atmosphere for socializing, watching documentaries or sipping a cocktail at the lounge bar. There is comfortable seating, perfect for the nightly briefings and lectures given by our naturalist guides who bring this complex region to life and illuminate your time in the Galapagos.

Sun Deck
One of the most popular areas on board is the Sun Deck, ideal for stargazing, soaking in the Jacuzzi, or relaxing in the comfortable sun loungers. In addition to shaded seating areas and exercise machines, the best seats in the house for wildlife viewing are found at the observation point – an excellent spot for whale and dolphin sightings.

Our well-stocked library is a quiet place to catch up on some reading, play a board game or watch a documentary.

Island Excursions

On island excursions, you will have a unique opportunity to interact with the natural world to a degree that is virtually impossible anywhere else on the planet. Our certified naturalist guides are there to educate you on evolution and showcase the uniqueness of each individual island. Celebrity Xperience anchors offshore at the visitor sites, and motorized dinghies carry you to landing points.

On the islands, you follow marked trails, walking at a leisurely pace, with your guide explaining the unusual sights you see. Activity levels range from Easy to Difficult, so guests can select walks that match their interests and abilities.


Throughout the cruise there are several opportunities to delve into the spectacular underwater world of the Galapagos Islands. It is not unusual to share the marine environment with rays, sea turtles, sharks, flightless cormorants, penguins, marine iguanas, a multitude of fish, and of course the ever playful sea lions.

We offer two types of snorkeling: from the beach, which is suitable for beginners, and deep water snorkeling from a motorized dinghy. The use of snorkeling equipment and wetsuits is complimentary on Celebrity Xperience.


For those who don’t want to snorkel, kayaking provides a wonderful opportunity to observe the wildlife up-close along the cliffs and in the water. When the water is clear, it is fairly common to spot sea turtles, sea lions, rays and even dolphins. Your guide and a motorized dinghy are always nearby for safety, and no prior experience is required.

Whale Watching

Although sightings are not guaranteed, with a keen eye and some luck you may see some whales during your cruise, especially between June and September. An announcement will always be made if a whale is spotted from Celebrity Xperience.
