Celebrity Appoints 1st Female Captain in Galapagos
For the first time ever, a female seafarer will navigate the archipelago of the Galapagos as captain. A native of Ecuador, Nathaly Albán will now be captain of Celebrity Xploration. Captain Albán has worked on several ships in the region, first joining the Celebrity family in 2006 as third officer onboard the 100-guest Celebrity Xpedition.
Continuing the brand’s dedication to advancing the role of women in leadership, Albán’s appointment follows that of Celebrity Summit’s own Captain Kate McCue. “Empowering strong women and elevating them to deserved leadership roles is a cause that is close to my heart, and one that Celebrity Cruises truly values,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.
