Glamping is coming to the Galapagos aboard the Celebrity Flora

MIAMI — Glamping on a cruise ship is real, and it’s heading straight to the Galapagos.

Celebrity Cruises has announced an exciting industry first: an ultra-luxe camping experience on the top deck of the Celebrity Flora that includes dining, drinking and sleeping under the stars.

Exclusively designed for the Galapagos Islands, the Celebrity Flora brings guests “closer to the Galapagos Islands than ever before – from its outward-facing design that takes guests to the water’s edge, to the enhanced custom-designed Novurania yacht tenders,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.

“And now, our new Galapagos Glamping experience gives guests an incredible opportunity to experience the destination the ship was built for, on a whole new level, under the millions of stars above.”

The one-night-only experience is available to four guests per night, and includes two luxurious cabanas, one fitted with a double bed for sleeping, and the other for enjoying an alfresco meal. A naturalist will also be available to the guests to highlight the stars and constellations directly from the cabana seats.

While under the stars, guests will enjoy campfire-inspired treats, from cocktails to carefully selected wines and s’mores. A delicious dinner followed by a full bedside breakfast cap off the experience.

The Galapagos Glamping experience will be available upon request for a fee on every Celebrity Flora sailing, subject to availability.

The Celebrity Flora will sail alternating 10- and 11-night tours, plus guests have the option to select a 16-night itinerary (an inner loop and outer loop) to the region’s most stunning locales in 2019 and 2020. Based in Baltra Island in the Galapagos, the ship will make its debut sailing on May 26, 2019. Bookings are now open.
