Xpedition image
We were very excited when we finally bit the bullet and booked a cruise on the Celebrity Xpedition. This was going to be an experience that we would hope that we would never forget. We sailed through South America and Antarctica on this voyage, and needless to say this was not a cheap trip to say the least.

We tried to tie everything together with Celebrity when booking the cruise as we booked all travel arrangements with them. This included our flights to the port and to the ship, as well as back home. The Quito airport was a bit of challenge in this scenario as the airport is small, so it does not stay open around the clock. With flights very early in the morning, we actually had to rush to get on our flight. We had some trouble with the transfer to the airport, along with some waiting at the airport we did not enjoy. In the end though we made it to and from Baltra and all was perfectly fine.

We stayed in a very basic inside cabin, nothing special, but I must say that the cabin stewards made us feel as though we were the only passengers on the ship.

The cruise itself was fantastic in terms of where you went and all of that, it is just that the food sort of ruined the experience, it is a cruise remember!

negative of cruise Negatives of Cruise
The biggest complaint that I have and the reason that this is not all I had hoped for is due to the fact that the food was just a major downer. We do not expect the fanciest food in the world, but we certainly do expect to have some good tasting food considering the trip cost thousands of dollars. When we got steak one night, it was not cooked appropriately. Lunch locations did not even stay open during all of the promised hours. The only good thing I ate all week was pasta, very disappointing.

I would reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for .
