MS Xpedition is a cruise ship for Celebrity Cruises and the sole ship of the Xpedition class[citation needed]. The ship is an alternative to the line's larger ships, offering more personal attention afforded by its smaller size. With the ship's limited capacity of 96 passengers and an active itinerary, it is marketed to a younger and a better educated demographic than the average cruise ship passenger.

The ship currently sails to the Galápagos Islands, revisiting the ports of Charles Darwin. The ship's shallow draft allows it to access ports in the region that larger cruise ships cannot visit.
