This catamaran accommodates 16 guests in 8 spacious and stylish cabins, four of which have private balconies.
From your comfortable base aboard Celebrity Xploration, you will be able to explore the best visitor sites in the islands. There are many opportunities to hike, swim, snorkel, kayak, bird-watch and take great close-up photographs of the flora and fauna. Celebrity Xplorationanchors off-shore at two visitor sites per day. Join your naturalist guide onshore for excursions - maximum group size is 16 people. All guides are certified Class II or III naturalists and speak fluent English. On the islands you will follow marked trails, walking at a leisurely pace, with your guide explaining the unusual sights you see. You will spend 3 to 4 hours at each site, allowing plenty of time to explore the abundant wildlife. The snorkelling schedule allows several immersions during the cruise. The use of snorkelling equipment and wetsuits is complimentary. Most of the snorkelling activities take place before or after island excursions, so that you will not miss the hikes.
