Darwin is also the name of the restaurant, named after the English naturalist, geologist and biologist, known for his theories on evolution. On deck there is an informal Beagle Grill. The boat has a maximum capacity...

You may have wondered what life in like on the Celebrity Xpedition. If you are used to a large ship that goes to safe large ports then this will be something very different, this ship has a shallow draft which allows it to get into many places others ships cannot imagine. It is a ship that repeatedly visits the...
