Celebrity Cruises has launched its new edition cruise ship Celebrity Flora. A masterful exponent of stunning ship design, Celebrity Flora is a dedicated cruise ship for the Galapagos Islands, a deeply enigmatic archipelago of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The ship is an elevated and inspired approach to marine exploration, meticulously designed expressly for the awe-inspiring Galapagos. As the exclusive India representative of the brand, Indian travellers can book a cruise trip on the ship through TIRUN and enjoy an unparalleled cruise experience to a destination that is considered to still have the primitive spirit of Earth alive, in a ship that is the embodiment of cutting-edge technologies in the world of cruising.
The 100-guest Celebrity Flora offers seamless sea-to-shore transportation, and includes anchorless technology that maintains the ship’s position while protecting the sensitive sea floor. Innovative outward-facing design gives guests 360-degree views of the islands, while personal suite attendants, new dining venues, an open-air stargazing platform, and expert-lead ecological seminars are some of the numerous features that distinguish the modern luxury vacation experience.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises said that Celebrity Flora marks another example of our revolutionary ship design by allowing the destination and its environment to influence every decision they have made. From the luxurious all-suite accommodations to industry-first, eco-friendly innovations, we created a ship that brings a new level of luxury, sustainability and natural exploration to the region.
Commenting on the launch, Varun Chadha, CEO, TIRUN said, that “Celebrity Flora is one of the most energy-efficient ships in its class, with a 15 percent reduction of fuel consumption and equivalently fewer air emissions. Celebrity Flora provides retreat to the travellers bringing the outside in, through Celebrity’s signature outward-facing layouts and heralded Infinite Verandas. Added to it is the lure of the destination itself. Giant tortoises, Komodo dragons, sea turtles, iguanas and flamingos are just a taster of the species that can be found on the 19 volcanic islands that make up the Galapagos, along with the pristine beauty of the beaches and the landscape. With the destination being a significant incentive, a cruise aboard Celebrity Flora promises a memory of a lifetime that Indian cruise enthusiasts and adventure seekers can hardly afford to miss.”
