Celebrity Xpedition runs aground in Galapagos

Recommended Posts

Cruise Mapper shows Xpedition cruising in Galapagos. But so far no passenger updates on Cruise Critic. I am on March 14 cruise so here's hoping all is now ok. But am still showing cabin 305 on closed deck 3!!??  Gerry

Do you have access to the Galapagos Desk? 866-973-8466 is the number we call from the States. Even Celebrity’s main number should be able to help you.  Good luck!

I'm on March 7th cruise.  Had cabin 416 (now closed)

 

Received notification 4 February of reallocation of cabin.

Looking good!

It's possible they took advantage of provisioning at the shipyard and will finish up in Baltra. 

 

I (very) dimly recall reading that they have to have all Ecuadorian provisions onboard. But that was 7 years ago when we did our first Galapagos cruise.

Yes, I believe you are correct! And lest we forget the infamous lobster incident, lol!

I called our Australian number. I think I knew more about the status of Xpedition than he did - a guy in a call centre who knows where. But he took my details as I suspect Galapagos people not in - due to time zones. Will hopefully call back with details. But I did check Celebrity website and they are selling cabins on 14 March 2020 cruise; so probably ok. I'd just fell better with room not of deck 3.  Gerry

Good luck, I hope things get sorted out for you!
