Celebrity Apex will join the Celebrity Cruises fleet in April 2020 - with cruises going on sale from 29 November 2018. The second of the revolutionary Edge Class ships, Celebrity Apex will sail to destinations far and wide from Southampton. She will have some of the fleet's most luxurious accommodation including the Edge Staterooms with Infinite Balcony and twin-level Edge Villas with outdoor plunge pools. This floating luxury paradise will mimic the resort-style environment of her sister ship Celebrity Edge with contemporary furniture and a light-coloured decor. There will also be no less than 29 world-class culinary venues, seven of which will be brand-new speciality restaurants; perfectly complemented by innovative signature spaces such as the Magic Carpet and the Rooftop Garden. A warm friendly atmosphere coupled with first-class service and a wide variety of innovative onboard facilities will add to your modern and luxurious cruise experience.
The dining experiences onboard Celebrity Apex will tempt you with a world of flavours. Dine at the Rooftop Garden Grill and taste a wide range of international cuisine from the a la carte menu. The Magic Carpet platform transforms into 'Dinner on the Apex', a 90-seater restaurant that opens in time for sunset each evening. Suite class guests can enjoy exclusive access to Luminae at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Situated alongside the 25-yard lap pool is the Pool Bar; sip your favourite cocktail, indulge in a selection of snacks, and take in the stunning surroundings. The Sunset Bar offers a range of drinks; it's the perfect spot to catch up with friends while enjoying the spectacular views.
Entertainment on board Celebrity Apex will caters to all tastes. Relax on the Pool Deck or in the adult-only Solarium; suite-class guests can escape to the exclusive The Retreat Sun Deck. The Magic Carpet, the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform, transforms into different venues with daily performances and musicians to enjoy. Discover the Rooftop Garden where you can catch a movie at the 'Taste of Film' venue or dance the night away to a live band.
