With an intimate delivery ceremony, Celebrity Cruises has welcomed Celebrity Flora, the first expedition mega yacht designed specifically for the Galapagos Islands.
Celebrity Flora, the first ship designed specifically for the beautiful Galapagos Islands has officially joined the Celebrity Cruises fleet. In honor of the significant moment Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.’s Chairman and CEO Richard D. Fain hosted a ceremony aboard Celebrity Flora, while docked in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
“The delivery of Celebrity Flora is a momentous occasion,” said Richard D. Fain. “Designing a new ship specifically for the Galapagos Islands was an exciting challenge and we think Celebrity Flora succeeded beautifully. It is of course luxurious – but it’s also the most energy-efficient ship of its kind in the region, which further demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and protecting the vital ecosystem of this unique place.”
The most energy-efficient ship of its kind in the region, the 100-guest Celebrity Flora was designed specifically to explore the Galapagos.
The cutting-edge new ship features Celebrity’s signature outward-facing design concept, giving guests 360-degree views of the islands, and all-suite accommodations – including an unprecedented 50-percent Sky Suites with Infinite Veranda – with service provided by personal attendants.
Unique to Celebrity Flora are the first-ever glamping experience at sea, new dining venues, an open-air stargazing platform, expert-led ecological seminars and custom-designed Novurania yacht tenders, which create a seamless sea-to-shore experience.
Celebrity Flora will have the highest ratio of Certified Naturalists per guest (1:9) in the Galapagos, who will offer travelers an in-depth experience with certification by the Galapagos National Park, recognizing their extensive educational training and commitment to maintaining the pristine nature of these islands.
Celebrity Flora will sail from Baltra year-round, making her first sailing on June 30, 2019. For more information visit Celebrity Cruises.
