We just got back from our 10-day vacation to Quito, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I cannot say enough great things about this whole experience. I will remember it always. We chose to book our airfare to and from Quito on our own - but once we arrived in Quito, Celebrity handled EVERYTHING! Ground transfers, meals in Quito, a tour of Quito, tips for tour guides, 2 nights pre-cruise and 1 night post-cruise at the gorgeous JW Marriott hotel (VERY nice), a separate check-in desk at the hotel, and then, of course, EVERYTHING on the ship. All drinks are included (wine, beer, champagne, and all cocktails!). ALL food (and boy howdy, there's a lot of food and it's phenomenal!) is included. All excursions are included - and it's not like a typical cruise where you have to choose from too many things you want to do. Each day, the excursions are practically the same, but differing in their intensity...so the decisions were always easy. Seriously, the list goes on and on and I'll probably run out of room soon. If you want more information about this trip, simply write back to let me know, and I'm happy to provide. Also - I'm happy to give you info. on dress code. We may have over-packed, but we brought the perfect clothes - and I'd love to make it easier on someone wondering what in the world to bring. Bon Voyage!!!!
