Celebrity Xpedition gets Galapagos permit restored

By Tom Stieghorst
Celebrity Cruises said its license to sail in Galapagos National Park will be reinstated, but that another cruise has been canceled.

Celebrity's Xpedition ship will resume cruises with the June 30 sailing, a spokeswoman said. The June 23 cruise has been scrubbed.

In total, Celebrity canceled four Galapagos cruises after it was discovered that the Xpedition had locally caught lobster outside the season for lobster.

The frozen lobster tails were caught legally in season, Celebrity said. A new law, however, requires them to be consumed within five days of the end of the season in December.
