The second Edge-Class ship to arise from Celebrity Cruises, Celebrity Apex will be prepared to set sail from Southampton in April 2020.
Promising luxury accommodation, world-class culinary venues and unforgettable entertainment, she will continue the revolutionary trend for Celebrity Cruises.
The future of sailing with Celebrity Apex
Construction began on the ship in July, when the steel cutting ceremony took place in the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard, St. Nazaire. With her being the second Edge-Class ship, many features will mirror that of the much-awaited Celebrity Edge due to launch later this year.
One of the more prominent features is the Magic Carpet – a movable platform and the first of its kind to be offered at sea. Other additions include two-deck jogging tracks and martini-glass hot tubs.
New accommodations will also arrive with the Edge Class, with the Infinite Veranda cabins boasting bi-fold doors to blend the outside with the inside and offer 23% more space when compared with traditional balcony cabins. The Edge Class will also be the first for Celebrity to offer solo cabins for travellers cruising alone.
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity’s President, said:
“When Celebrity Apex launches in Southampton in 2020 it will be another incredible moment for our company and for the UK market, especially as it will be ten years since we last named and operated a new ship from the UK […] Celebrity Apex will continue our tradition of reimagining what is expected from all aspects of a holiday at sea and elevate modern luxury cruising in ways never seen before.”
Celebrity Apex is set to go on sale 29 November, ready for her debut in 2020! We can’t wait to find out more!
