Launching in 2020, Celebrity Apex is the second ship in the Celebrity Cruises fleet to cruise from Southampton, the other being Celebrity Silhouette. Celebrity Apex is also the second ship in the Edge Class of cruise ships, matching her sister ship Celebrity Edge in features and more, to truly offer the pinnacle of modern luxury cruising.
With capacity for 2,900 passengers, Celebrity Apex features all of the onboard amenities that make Celebrity Edge so popular including infinite balconies, martini glass Jacuzzis, and the fantastic cantilevered platform; the ‘Magic Carpet’. Several new suites are also available with double storeys, wrap-around glass windows, and private plunge pools. In addition, Celebrity Apex will feature Infinity staterooms with full glass verandas to bring the outside in an unbelievable style.
The Magic Carpet is definitely a highlight of the Edge Class. This movable platform on the side of the ship can change to become different venues depending on which level it stops on. From al fresco dining to open deck bars, there’s something for everyone on the Magic Carpet.
In terms of dining you can expect the same level of fantastic cuisine as Celebrity Apex’s predecessors in the Celebrity Cruises fleet. Whether passengers opt for ‘free dining’ or prefer to try out one of the speciality restaurants onboard, there’s something for everyone with 29 unbelievable eating and drinking options to choose from.
Of these dining venues there will be four standard and seven speciality restaurants. Special mention has to go to Luminae, which is exclusively for suite guests as an alternative to the main dining room, and the Rooftop Garden Grill for homely burgers and barbecues out in the open air. However, as with most aspects on Celebrity Apex, the Magic Carpet simply steals the show for its truly unique dining experience.
Once again, Celebrity Apex boasts the same excellent entertainment venues and features as her sister ship:
The activities onboard Celebrity Apex are tailored so that every guest can enjoy themselves during the cruise. The large pool and jogging track on the Resort Deck mean that you can stay active during your holiday, although if you’d rather just dip your toes in the water while sipping on a drink, there is the Pool Bar where you can do just this. The ship is also a great place to indulge in some retail therapy and with top-end brands, you’re guaranteed to find a little holiday treat exactly to your taste. Celebrity also hasn’t forgotten about the younger guests onboard. Camp at Sea has been carefully organised so that children of all ages can take part in interactive and engaging activities.
Celebrity Cruises offer some of the finest spa facilities at sea with their AquaClass packages, which include unlimited access to the Persian Garden Spa, plus exclusive dining in the clean-eating speciality restaurant, Blu. As well as this, Celebrity Apex takes rejuvenation while cruising to a whole new level, featuring a 22,000 square foot spa complex designed by Kelly Hoppen, of Dragon’s Den fame. Featured spa and treatment facilities include zero gravity, ocean wave or salt stone massages out of an unbelievable 124 possible treatments.
