Celebrity Cruises’ Galapagos Islands exploration ship Celebrity Xpedition was due back into service at the weekend after a seven-day revamp.

Enhancements across the 100-passenger vessel include redecorated cabins, lounges and restaurants, and faster and more reliable wi-fi.

The ship was set to resume sailings on Sunday following a week-long refit in Panama.

It will be joined in the region by new-build Celebrity Flora in June 2019.

Company president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said: “Our commitment to the Galapagos Islands has never been stronger, because we know, having sailed these awe-inspiring islands for so many years, what a life-changing experience it is to come here.

“The upgrades we’re making to Celebrity Xpedition and the upcoming arrival of our new Celebrity Flora, the first ship designed specifically with the Galapagos Islands in mind, will transform the way our guests discover this amazing place and take our unrivalled Galapagos offerings to an entirely new level.”
