Celebrity Cruises Announce Another New Ship
Tuesday 21st November 2017, 9:57am
Celebrity Cruises have announced they will build a new ship which will be custom-made for sailing the Galapagos archipelago.
With the capacity to carry 100 passengers, Celebrity Flora is set to debut on May 26th 2019. The vessel will be all-suite and will feature floor-to-ceiling windows as well as anchor-less technology which will assist with reducing the environmental impact on the sea floor.
Celebrity Flora will be the first ship of its kind ever to be designed and manufactured specifically with the destination in mind, which in this case is the captivating Galapagos Islands. Celebrity followed in their own footsteps of the revolutionary new ship, Celebrity EdgeSM, by designing Celebrity Flora in 3-D.
This advanced technology lets them experience every space on board in virtual reality to fine-tune every detail of the design before she’s even built. This process allows Celebrity to create the most state-of-the-art ship to ever sail the Galapagos Islands.
Celebrity Flora marks an evolutionary turning point in the approach to ship design by allowing the destination and its environment to spire and influence every decision made. From the luxurious all-suites accommodations that incorporate 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, we’ve created a ship that truly differentiates between visiting this incredible corner of the world and experiencing it.
Celebrity Flora also features Celebrity’s innovative outward facing design that makes the destination the center of attention to create a definite connection between guests, the ocean, and the stunning islands. By focusing the direction of spaces outward at every opportunity (including suites and even bathrooms), we virtually erase the boundaries between ship and destination to create a sense of truly being in the destination, experiencing the destination, instead of just visiting it.
