Trip report from March Galapagos cruise on the Celebrity Flo

In partial thanks for all the help I have received on this forum, I'm providing a link to the trip report I just completed for our March cruise to the Galapagos Islands on the Celebrity Flora. The report also includes the follow-on land tour to Machu Picchu and other Peru sites. You can easily skip over the land tour part if you want to.

Anyway, you can get directly to this latest trip report at:

or, you can get the full list of our trip reports to choose from at:

Oh, the above web site is my own personal, non-commercial, web page.

Also, I should point out that my trip reports are rather photo intensive. There are over 200 photos in this report.

By the way, if anybody notices any errors or mistakes in the descriptions or names of places, don't hesitate to let me know, either here or via a personal message. After a few days, one thing started to run into another...

FYI, Celebrity has two other ships in Galapagos: XPloration and XPedition,

Thanks for the report.

Yes, the Expedition was at Santiago Island the same day as we were. There is a photo of it in the March 9 day of activities. We did not see the Exploration. Note that I tend to use the more common spellings of the ships names.... Celebrity calls them Xpedition and Xploration, using the Celebrity "X" trademark.

Wonderful review! We are looking to book a Galapagos trip for next spring and this gave us a great taste of what is to come. Can I ask you how you decided between the Flora vs Xpidition and which route to take?

I wish I could say that I made some thoughtful decision between the ships and routes, but the ship choice was mainly because we had been on several other cruises on Windstar ships of 149 passenger capacity and were happy with that, so the 100 passenger capacity Flora seemed to be somewhat similar. While there seem to be two different routes the Flora takes, they are probably about 75% the same, and I did not research the differences. For us, we had a limited timeframe within which we could travel and the dates for this route matched the time/dates we had available better.
