New Celebrity Apex Expansion

New Celebrity Apex Expansion

Celebrity Cruises has just released news that the highly anticipated inaugural season of Celebrity Apex has expanded, as the second revolutionary Edge Series ship will now be completed ahead of schedule and enter service earlier than anticipated in 2020. Guests can now enjoy a sneak peek of Celebrity Apex on a new Preview Sailing; a four-night itinerary out of Celebrity Apex’s launch port, Southampton. The Preview Sailing will depart on 1st April 2020 and call at Bruges, followed by an extended stay in Amsterdam, offering guests the opportunity to explore this city by day and night.

Hot on the heels of the launch of the award-winning Celebrity Edge, the 2,918-guest Celebrity Apex will feature innovative signature features exclusive to Celebrity Cruises’ Edge Series ships, including the Magic Carpet - a cantilevered platform suspended from the side of the ship; open-air plunge pools; an outdoor Rooftop Garden; vast spa; no fewer than 29 unique restaurants and bars; and a stunning three-deck dining and immersive entertainment space - Eden.

Guests will be able to take advantage of the signature Edge Series staterooms featuring Infinite Balconies, the design of which has been carefully developed by renowned London-based designer Kelly Hoppen, MBE. Suite guests will also enjoy two exclusive new sanctuaries, The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge.

Jo Rzymowska, Vice-President and Managing Director, Celebrity Cruises UK, Ireland & Asia commented: “After a phenomenal response to our ‘game-changing’ ship Celebrity Edge last year, we couldn’t be more excited that sister ship, Celebrity Apex, will take to the water earlier than expected. The four-night ‘Preview Sailing’ is the perfect introduction to luxury holidays at sea on a ship that breaks all the rules”.

Following this extra sailing, Celebrity Apex will continue its European mini-season with five cruises to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe in spring 2020, before home-porting in Rome and Barcelona for the rest of the summer.

If ever a new ship demonstrates a ‘wow-factor’, Celebrity Apex has it in spades. Designed completely in 3-D and with concepts that are fresh, exciting, en vogue and comfortable, this new class of 129,000-tonne ships has send a volt of energy through the cruise industry. They are the essence of Celebrity’s Modern Luxury style.
