We had to give ourselves a Christmas Present! However it seems so far away Oct 18,2015. I didn't even have a calendar that went out that far and had to go online to look at the dates LOL ;OD however it is always wonderful to plan and dream away.
I was talking to a travel agent couple last week on the Divina. They said doing the Xpedition was one of the best cruises they had ever done. Very personalized service, all-inclusive, etc. I think they'd done it twice around the Galapagos.
Dave, I read so many wonderful reviews on Cruise Critic and it seems that everyone agrees that it was an unforgettable and trip of a lifetime. I was surprised how fast the ship fills even though it is way out there in the future. I wasn't able to get the cabin of my choice on 3 different dates but no big deal really. Very exciting and we are done our Christmas Shopping LOL
One important thing I forgot to mention. If anyone is Elite and thinking about going Celebrity will no longer be offering the 10% off of the Galapagos Cruise as of Dec 31, 2013. It made me a tad mad but they said it was never a benefit but an offering. It was never presented that way at all. It was on our list so we decided to at least get the 10% off.
It is all inclusive so that is nice, drinks, internet, gratuities, transfers, all excursions etc.. The trip includes the R/T flight from Quito to the ship in Baltra. We did the 11 day so everything in Quito is included. I did find air to Quito R/T from Norfolk for $782. but who knows what it will be in 2015. I will use Choice Air more than likely. I was happy to get the 10% but didn't like the idea we had to move on it so soon.
