Celebrity To Build New Expedition Vessel

Not to be left out of what will soon be the latest boom in the industry, luxury expedition ships, Celebrity Cruises will build a brand new expedition vessel called Celebrity Flora.

Celebrity is no stranger to this market. They currently sail the Xpedition class of vessels in the Galapagos islands. These three vessels were all purchased from former owners, however the Celebrity Flora will be a newbuild. The unnamed shipyard will be in the Netherlands. The 100pax ship will be designed solely for the Galapagos and her maiden voyage is scheduled for May of 2019.

Take a look at her deckplans. She’ll feature two unique aft penthouses with alternating angled balconies.
