The luxurious Celebrity Apex will make her debut in April 2020 from Southampton. Like her industry-changing sister ship, Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Apex will feature an innovative outward-facing design and transformational accommodations that invite guests to take in the breathtaking world around them.
In total, Celebrity’s 2020 European season will feature six award-winning ships, two of which will have been reimagined as part of ‘The Celebrity Revolution’, an ambitious $500-million revitalisation programme that will introduce breathtakingly redesigned accommodations, reimagined spaces, and state-of-the-art experiences across the brand’s fleet. The best-in-class fleet will visit the most cities ever by Celebrity in a single season – with more than 90 ports of call across 27 different countries.
New destination experiences will include a first-ever mini season of sailings from Lisbon, Portugal, as well as country-immersive sailings that provide greater, in-depth experiences for travellers in either Greece or Italy. This season also introduces new ports for Celebrity, including Trieste, Italy and Isle of Portland in Dorset. Back by popular demand, the brand is also returning to Oslo, Norway; Agadir, Morocco and Kusadasi, Turkey, where guests can explore the ancient city of Ephesus.
With more time in ports, more overnight stays and more in-depth experiences, travellers will be able to experience more new places in Europe than ever before and do it aboard the most spectacular spaces at sea.
As the newest ship in the Edge Series, Celebrity Apex will feature impeccable accommodation, including Edge Staterooms with Infinite Verandas and two-story Edge Villas with outdoor plunge pools, as well as 29 world-class culinary venues.
Celebrity Apex will debut in Southampton where she will offer a mini season of five sailings to European destinations, including the Norwegian Fjords and the northern coasts of Spain and Portugal. Aboard Apex, travellers can experience a new 10-night Capital Cities Cruise with visits to iconic cities including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Oslo and Paris.
After Celebrity Apex’s Northern Europe mini season, she’ll spend the rest of her inaugural summer sailing seven to 12-night itineraries.
During her peak season, Apex will venture through the sparkling western Mediterranean from Barcelona and Rome, offering a range of itineraries that visit a variety of ports, including Naples, Italy; Florence, Italy; Monte Carlo, Monaco; Cannes, France; Palma De Mallorca, Spain one way and Valencia, Spain; Ibiza, Spain; Provence, France; Nice, France; and Florence, Italy the other way. The ship will also make special visits to Lisbon and Valletta.
Celebrity Edge will join her sister ship, Celebrity Apex, in the Mediterranean and offer a full season of sailings in the eastern region and Adriatic. On 10 and 11-night itineraries, Celebrity Edge will take travellers to Trieste, Italy – a unique crossroads of Latin, Slavic, and Germanic cultures – where they will stay overnight and spend two days, providing the opportunity to explore Trieste and Venice all in one in-depth stop. Celebrity Edge will also transport travellers to some of the most breathtaking places in the world, including the Amalfi Coast, Malta, and the picturesque, sun-soaked islands of Greece.
“Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Apex were designed to change the way travellers experience the world, and that’s exactly what they will do this season,” said a Celebrity Cruises spokesperson.
