Celebrity Cruises’ New Ship Lets You Camp Under The Stars

About this time last year, we revealed some of the early details regarding Celebrity Flora, a new ship from Celebrity Cruises set to start sailing around the Galapagos Islands in 2019. Now, more has been revealed about this custom-built vessel, including the fact that guests will have the chance to camp under the skies as they sail between islands such as Isabela, Santa Cruz and Floreana.

With the goal of taking you closer to the wildlife and natural scenery than ever before, the ship has a number of features that are sure to enhance your experience and the luxury glamping pods on the top deck definitely fall into this category.

Celebrity Flora

Available for an additional fee when booked in advance, the overnight adventure will consist of star-gazing, intimate dining and sleeping outside in the elements. There are two cabanas, one equipped with a table and the other with a double bed, so you can spend a romantic evening with a loved one (complete with your own cocktail menu) without missing a second of what’s going on around you. To help you make the most of your time, a naturalist will also be on-hand to point out key constellations and tell you more about the sky at night.

The glamourous touches on board Celebrity Flora don’t end there, though. As well as wonderfully appointed suites and public areas that bring you closer to the water, anyone sailing the Galapagos will be able to reach the shore in style courtesy of Novurania yacht tenders. Novurania is a big name in the luxury yacht industry and the company has purpose-built a fleet of tenders for this part of the world.

Other features that have already been announced include al-fresco dining in the Ocean Grill, the Vista lounge complete with comfy egg chairs and a hot tub, an upper-deck observatory, and innovative technology that will act as an anchor without damaging the ecosystems on the sea floor.
