Celebrity Flora Marks an Evolutionary Turning Point in the Approach to Ship Design for the Galapagos
Updated: Nov 10, 2018
Celebrity has designed the 100 passengers all-suite Flora vessel with meetings, incentives, charters, and events in mind. Celebrity Flora is set for its maiden voyage in May 2019. Creating a sense of being truly immersed in the destination, Flora will feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows throughout with innovative outward facing design.
State-of-the-art technologies make Celebrity Flora one of the most eco-friendly vessels sailing this pristine archipelago. Flora will feature environmentally friendly systems, the ability to convert sea water and air-conditioning condensation into fresh water, as well as provide in-room water filtration stations for even further purification. In addition, Flora will have anchor-less technology that can maintain a ship's position while also protecting the sensitive sea bed from damage. It is set to be energy-efficient with a 15% reduction of fuel consumption and fewer air emissions thanks to an advance propulsion system; in addition to unique hull configuration and specially designed diesel engines. Celebrity cruises continues its focus on corporate responsibility in its ship designs, while providing passengers with a unique experience.
Seven public spaces are available on the Flora to gather for events and meetings.
The largest of the public spaces being the following:
Discovery Lounge located on Deck 4 can accommodate 100 guests. It is the main gathering spot on the ship, Discovery Lounge is where passengers can gather for presentations and to find out more about excursion options. At night, the lounge transforms into an entertainment venue with full bar, stage for live entertainment and comfortable seating including sofas and lounge chairs.
Darwin's Cove, located on Deck 3 can accommodate 72 guests. It will also house the Guest Relations area, and will be the spot for passengers to find cold towels, infused waters and other refreshments. This is also an area used as a meeting gathering place for group. As well as where passengers can find the naturalist team to ask about daily activities, excursions, or to talk more about the #Galapagos.
The Vista is an open-air area that can accommodate up to 59 guests. A nice area for team building events while unwinding and releasing all the tension into the ocean. Also a great area for enjoying the whirlpool tub, sink into a cocoon-style lounger with a favorite book or drift off for a recharging nap. Settle into a private cabana for cocktails with friends and colleagues.
The remaining spaces are fitting for group gatherings of 40 and less guests.
