Celebrity Flora was built in the Netherlands and launched in May 2019. She is an expedition cruise ship built specifically for the Galapagos Islands; an all-suite ship that incorporates sustainable and natural materials in her design.
Her Dynamic Positioning System means that no anchors are used when she docks, helping to protect the seas and corals of a fragile ecosystem. She also features an Oceanscope, which helps people to understand the ecology and ocean currents of the Galapagos.
The name Flora was influenced by the exotic and unique flora and fauna found in the Galapagos Islands. The designer, Adriana Hoyos, used many natural elements found in the region to help design the interior of the ship. The different textures used represent elements such as the sand, volcanic ashes and leaves.
Many of the facilities on board help to create a luxurious experience. These include glamping pods on the top deck, high-end tender yachts and an al-fresco grill.
