May 2019 will see the launch of a small cruise ship specifically designed for the Galápagos archipelago. Like the Celebrity Xpedition, the new Celebrity Flora will carry 100 passengers. At 333 feet long, however, it will be significantly larger than the existing vessel.

The design will provide space for two restaurants, two lounges, a stargazing platform and two 1,288-square-foot penthouses with floor-to-ceiling windows. The ship’s green credentials will be augmented by a desalination system to create potable water and a “dynamic positioning system,” which will allow the vessel to maintain its position without using an anchor and potentially damaging the seabed.
