Today marks the 100 day countdown to the highly-anticipated launch of Celebrity Apex. The first Celebrity Cruises ship to be launched in the UK in ten years, the stunning Celebrity Apex will make her debut sailing from Southampton, with a mini-season around Europe from 1st April 2020. I sailed on Celebrity Edge earlier this year and was totally wowed – take a look here at my full review and ship tour, via Cruise International Magazine.
Setting a new standard of luxury and innovation at sea, Celebrity Apex is hot on the heels of her sister-ship, the award winning Celebrity Edge, which this year became one of TIME Magazine’s Worlds Greatest Places. Hailed as a game-changer in the industry and credited for redefining luxury holidays at sea, Celebrity Edge’s brand new sister ship will continue this legacy when she sails out of UK shores for the first time in 2020 ? changing the way guests experience the world.
In just 100 days, Celebrity Apex will join Celebrity Edge as the second in Celebrity Cruises Edge-Series of ships, with a mini-season of incredible sailings around Europe straight from Southampton! By stepping on board, guests will be transported to a number of sought after destinations, from the sun-soaked coasts of the Mediterranean to the dramatic Fjords of Norway, there is an eclectic range of tempting 4-10 night itineraries to choose from. Next year will see Celebrity Apex open up the world to guests in a way never seen before, making this an unmissable travel experience for those seeking both luxury and adventure alike.
Beginning her European mini-season with an Apex Preview Sailing on 1st April, Celebrity Apex will visit the vibrant cities of Amsterdam and Bruges, before embarking on her Spain and Portugal inaugural sailing, enabling guests to immerse themselves in the rich culture and beauty of Bilbao, Lisbon, Porto and Paris.
For guests looking to discover Europe’s most luxurious cities, a 10-night Northern European Capital Cities holiday allows guests to explore the most aspirational travel destinations, including Oslo, Copenhagen and one of ABTA’s 12 places to watch in 2020, the Netherlands. Departing 13th April 2020, prices are £1,499 per person based on two people sharing an Oceanview Stateroom. The cruise includes an overnight stay in Oslo and departs from Southampton, calling at Oslo (Norway), Copenhagen (Denmark), Berlin (Warnemunde, Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Bruges, (Zeebrugge, Belgium), Paris (Le Havre, France) before returning to Southampton.
Like Celebrity Edge, she will be packed with a number of technological and design wonders that aim to reimagine cruising for the luxury traveller by connecting guests with the ocean like never before. Amplifying the holiday experience, Celebrity Apex will host breath-taking accommodation brought to life by legendary designer Kelly Hoppen MBE, as well as the stunningly innovative Magic Carpet, a transformative venue that floats up and down the side of the ship. Other features on board Celebrity Apex include amazing open-air plunge pools with 270-degree views, an outdoor Rooftop Garden, 29 world-class culinary venues and bars and a stunning three-deck dining and immersive entertainment space, Eden.
Celebrity Cruises is not only revolutionising its ships but also the unforgettable experiences onboard. Continuing with its industry-first partnership with the American Ballet Theatre, Celebrity Apex will host the acclaimed dance company onboard her inaugural sailing on 5th April 2020, bringing the world’s best classical dance experience to sea.
