Celebrity Cruises Offers Conservation Program on Galapagos Expedition

Galapagos Islands Sullivan BayTravelers sailing to the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity Cruises can experience immersive land excursions that range from dining on authentic cuisine prepared by local residents to contributing to the protected islands by giving new life to a native tree species.

Celebrity established the Galapagos Fund, an onboard conservation program, to give guests an opportunity to participate in the ongoing conservation of the islands.

Guests sailing to the Galapagos on Celebrity Xpedition have the opportunity to participate in Celebrity’s Scalesia Reforestation Project. The project invites guests to join the efforts of Celebrity Cruises and the Galapagos National Park to achieve their goal of planting 5,000 Scalesia trees, an endemic tree that has lost much of its habitat in the Galapagos.

The project is among several immersive experiences available to guests aboard the Celebrity Xpedition.

Visitors can visit a family farm on the island of Santa Cruz and dine on local fare as a part of Celebrity’s immersive cultural experience that directly connects vacationers with residents of the local community.
