Default Galaxy, Margarita Island

I am cruising on Galaxy on Oct. 26 and I just noticed that Margarita Island, Venezula was added as a port of call. When did this happen? I can't find any information on it. Does anyone know anything about this? Thanks.

Syd,
We are sailing on the same trip and your message was the first I heard about the change. Doesn't show up on the tickets, I would like to know something about this new destination as well. I'll be looking forward to reading any info that shows up on the board.

Harry

Why not call your T/A or 1-800-celebrity and ask?

I called Celebrity's Customer Service and they did indeed confirm that this was added!

They had no additional information at this time regarding excursions, etc.

I think it's really cool! Pleasant little surprise!

We stopped at Isle de Margarita when we cruised on the Ocean Princess last year. From what I recall, which isn't much, it was not the most memorable port of call.
I believe the town was about a 30-45 minute drive from where the ship's tenders dropped passengers. Though I remember reading that they were working on docking facilities closer to town.
I know this isn't great help, but it's all I remember<G>

Regards,
Kuki

Hi:
Well I am going on the Galaxy on December 14, and it will be nice if we go to Margarita Island. I've never been there. But I would like to know if this place is added to cruise or it is replacing another island?

Well I hope somebody knows and write me back, I will appreciate it.

Lillian

Well here I am again. Thats true, Isla Margarita was added to the route of the Galaxy Ship. Now has 5 ports to go. This is wonderful.

Celebrity has just posted their ship's tours for Margarita island. This might be a good option to consider since many general reviews of the island are not that "favorable".
Bon Voyage
