Celebrity Cruises has announced that the highly anticipated inaugural season of Celebrity Apex has been 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 (UK). The Preview Sailing will depart on 1 April 2020 and call at the beautiful city of Bruges, followed by an extended port of call in Amsterdam, offering guests the opportunity to explore this one-of-a-kind city by day and night, kicking off a mini-season of five sailings from Southampton.
Hot on the heels of the launch of the award-winning Celebrity Edge in late 2018, Celebrity Apex will feature innovative and breath-taking signature features exclusive to Celebrity Cruises’ Edge Series ships, including the Magic Carpet, an ever-changing cantilevered platform suspended from the side of the ship; open-air plunge pools with 270-degree views; an outdoor Rooftop Garden; a 22,000 ft. spa; 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 an Infinite Balcony, 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.
The additional four-night Celebrity Apex Preview Sailing will be priced from £889 for an Oceanview stateroom, based on two people sharing.
Celebrity Apex will then continue its European mini-season with five cruises to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe in spring 2020, before homeporting in Rome and Barcelona for the rest of the summer.
