On a cruise ship
Celebrity Apex: Innovative, state-of-the-art sailings
The 2,910-passenger Celebrity Apex, which debuted in June 2021, offers groundbreaking design and cutting-edge spaces unlike anything else at sea along with its nearly identical sister ship Celebrity Edge.
Sip cocktails, socialize or dine on the Magic Carpet, a cantilever platform on the side of the ship set five to 13 stories above sea level that allows passengers to feel like they are floating above the sea. Unwind in the widest range of staterooms in the Celebrity Cruises fleet, from Infinite Verandas to two-story Edge Villas to jaw-dropping Iconic Suites.
When you want some private time, suite guests can head to The Retreat, a spacious outdoor lounge area with a full-size pool and bar, concierge service, a lounge open 24/7 and a dedicated restaurant. The Resort Deck features a large lap pool flanked by sculptural trees and two martini glass shaped whirlpools that overlook the deck below. Explore the Rooftop Garden by day and especially by night, when the giant LED screen springs to life.
Dining offers a wealth of choices, beginning with four complimentary main restaurants, each with a distinctive design and signature dishes inspired by specific regions of the world, as well as several superb specialty restaurants. New technologies even make an appearance at Le Grand Bistro — before your meals arrive, animated characters will appear on your table to show you how your meal is prepared.
