Galápagos Islands

While there are several ways to visit the Galápagos, this page mainly focuses on a cruise with Celebrity Cruises, specifically their 7-night loop itineraries, which in our opinion, are terrific ways to experience the Galápagos Islands.

A destination. An adventure. An experience of a lifetime.

Once, volcanos spat and lava flowed, creating an archipelago of 19 islands with a marine reserve that serve as a living museum of evolution. Extreme isolation and the convergence of three ocean currents developed the most unusual wildlife.

Since the animals here don’t fear humans, you can truly get up close and personal, looking into the eyes of a Galápagos marine iguana, and walking among penguins – the only penguin species north of the equator. Here, you’ll discover creatures whose very existence forms the basis for one of the most famous scientific theories in history.
