Celebrity Flora® marks an evolutionary turning point in the approach to ship design by allowing the destination and its environment to inspire and influence every decision made. From the luxurious all-suites accommodations incorporating sustainable, natural materials that complement the destination to the Dynamic Positioning System∘ that enables the ship to stay on station without the use of anchors to help protect the seas, they’ve created a ship that truly differentiates between visiting this incredible corner of the world and experiencing it.
Celebrity Flora® features an innovative outward-facing design that makes the destination the centre of attention. By focusing the direction of spaces outward at every opportunity, they virtually erase the boundaries between ship∘ and destination. Join them onboard the most state-of-the-art ship to ever sail the Galapagos Islands.

Ability to accommodate guests with special needs aboard Celebrity Flora® is limited. This ship does not have an elevator or accessible staterooms. There is very little wheelchair accessibility on the Galapagos∘ Islands, and service animals are not permitted in the Galapagos National Park.
Every ship in the Celebrity Cruises® fleet has been designed to make your cruise as relaxing and stress-free as possible if you have mobility impairments. You’ll find a range of services designed with your comfort in mind, and experienced staff are happy to assist wherever possible.

The spacious accessible staterooms∘ range from 272 sq ft to 381 sq ft (83 sq m to 116 sq m), with a generous five ft (1.5m) turning radius in bedrooms, bathrooms and sitting areas, so you’ll have plenty of room to manoeuvre.
SHIPS WITH ROOM TO EXPLORE
On board you’ll find wide, spacious corridors∘ that are designed to allow 180° turns for wheelchairs. Most decks are accessible through automatic doors, and all public rooms have entrances with gradual inclines. Celebrity also offer scooter access, accessible Blackjack tables in the casino, and accessible Guest Relations desks.

Smoking is not permitted in any of the dining rooms, casino, theatre, lounge, hallway, elevator, corridor, stateroom or on any stateroom balcony.

We’re replacing higher wattage halogen and incandescent light bulbs with longer lasting fluorescent and Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights throughout∘ our fleet. Fluorescent and LED bulbs require 80% less energy, generate 50% less heat, reduce energy consumption, last much longer and contribute to more efficient air conditioning due to the cooler bulbs.
Propulsion and Hull Design
A new approach to hull design and propulsion systems, resulted in significant energy savings. Ships equiped with Common Rail Diesel Engines reduce energy consumption and NOX emissions at all engine loads.
Heating, Ventilation, and AC
Our ships are equipped with the latest and most efficient air-conditioning equipment commercially available. Coupled with improvements in system design and automation.
Operation Conservation Measures
Our environmental policies guide both our shipboard and shoreside employees in beneficial environmental practices. Our crewmembers are an integral part of our energy-conservation efforts. Staff and guests are advised to turn off lights, water and appliances when not needed, adjust temperature∘ thermostats to comfortable levels when no one is present and using towels and bed linens more than once before laundering.
Fresh Water Consumption
We ask our crewmembers and guests to help us conserve water whenever possible. To help reduce the energy needed to produce fresh water, we have installed water-reduction technology∘ and appliances throughout our fleet to reduce the use of water-producing equipment that consumes fuel or electricity. These features include sink aerators, showerheads, reduced-flow dishwashers and low-consumption laundry equipment.
Advanced Wastewater Purification
We Installed Advanced Wastewater Purification∘ (AWP) systems throughout the fleet. These technologically advanced systems clean the wastewater generated onboard our ships to create clean water that exceeds ship wastewater discharge standards throughout the world.
Renewable Energy Sources
Our ships are equipped with solar power technology. The panels and the clean power they produce can help reduce the consumption of energy∘ derived from fossil fuels. 500m2 of solar panels produce enough electricity to power a ship's guest elevators or approximately 7,000 LED lights.
We have installed high-efficiency appliances throughout the ship in order to minimize their impact on climate change and reduce our energy load. Every type of appliance onboard our ships is being evaluated for efficiency, including TV's, coffeemakers, ice makers, ovens and dishwashers.
Across the fleet we have applied window films that are specially glazed to prevent solar heat from penetrating, thereby reducing the amount of air conditioning needed to cool the ship, thereby saving energy.
We apply new silicone paints on the hull, which are innovative and environmentally safe coatings that increase the smoothness of our ships' hull. By creating a smoother hull, we can reduce the amount of energy needed to travel through water.
As the first ship ever designed for a destination, we wanted to ensure that Celebrity Flora was built with every state-of-the-art option and latest technology to make her one of the most eco-friendly and environmentally safe ships sailing on the planet. From a Dynamic Positioning System that enables the ship to stay on station without the use of anchors (to help protect the seas) to the solar panels on Deck 7 (it’s the first ship of this size to have them) that supplements the ship’s electricity supply and reduces emissions. Celebrity Flora even uses reverse osmosis equipment to process sea water into fresh water that supplies 100% of the ship’s needs.
Godmother: Yolanda Kakabadse
With our passionate focus on environmentalism in the Galapagos Islands, our choice for Celebrity Flora’s Godmother was an easy one to make—Yolanda Kakabadse. She’s a prominent environmental leader and a champion of sustainable development and biodiversity preservation. Yolanda is a former Minister of Environment for the Republic of Ecuador and a former president of both the International Union for Conservation of Nature and World Wildlife Fund International. She has dedicated her career to leaving the world a better place, which is exactly why she’s the perfect fit.
We’ve partnered with EarthEcho International, a nonprofit organization founded by Philippe Cousteau. Jr., to introduce a comprehensive and customized youth program designed to empower a new generation of environmental advocates. The program is designed to inspire young people to act now for a sustainable future. Together, we’re engaging with youth and the local community to support the protection and enhancement of the treasured ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands, and we’ll explore opportunities to expand our partnership to other regions of the world.
