About the event

You don't want to miss this exclusive, private event in the Houston Zoo's new Galapagos Exhibit!

Join Exemplary Travel Advisors & Celebrity Cruises for cocktails and dinner as we explore the Galapagos and beyond at our very special private charity event benefiting the Houston Zoo.

What to Expect

Upon entering the Zoo, you will be escorted to the first stop for our private event in their new Galapagos exhibit. With a welcome drink in hand, you'll have plenty of time to relax and enjoy this one-of-a-kind display without the crowds. The group will then enjoy a special animal encounter before enjoying dinner and an evening of scintillating information, entertainment, and surprises. 

As you enjoy your meal, our special guests will regale you with stories of the Galapagos, how your donations will help the Houston Zoo and support conservation projects, and the amazing opportunities Celebrity Cruises provides in the Galapagos and beyond.

This event is adults only. Even though we love the kiddos (and they love the Zoo) we ask that you leave anyone under the age of 21 at home.

How to Dress

Please come in your best "resort chic" outfits. Not sure what this means? We've got you covered. Just check out our Pinterest Board for ideas. Keep things light, flowy, and comfortable as we explore.
