In the spring of 2020, Celebrity Cruises will launch the second ship in its highly-lauded Edge series. With luxurious accommodations, dining that rivals the best on land, and an unparalleled commitment to service, Celebrity Apex provides guests with the best that modern cruise travel has to offer. One of the ship's most innovative features is its movable deck, or Magic Carpet. The cantilevered deck hovers over the water off the side of the ship and travels up and down over 16 decks, its function changing as it moves. When on Deck 2, the Magic Carpet is a tender platform for passengers waiting for transfer to shore; while stopped on Deck 5, it becomes an open-air extension of Raw on Five, the ship's go-to spot for sushi and oysters.
The innovation doesn't stop with the Magic Carpet. Celebrity has gone above and beyond to design a ship that truly breaks the mold. The Rooftop Garden on Deck 15 is covered with lush greenery and treetop sculptures meant to evoke childhood play areas. The ship's accommodations have also reached a new level of luxury thanks to their Suite Class rooms, which include a two-story villa with a private plunge pool. The ship's cutting-edge Infinite Verandas, which are available in Aqua Class, Concierge Class, and other Edge Staterooms, provide access to the ocean breeze at the touch of a button. Staterooms at every level feature sophisticated design elements and Celebrity's eXhale bedding and Cashmere Mattresses.
dining opportunities aboard ship provide something to delight the palate of
every passenger, from the most adventurous foodie to the pickiest of eaters.
Apex's main restaurant, Cosmopolitan, serves up new American cuisine with a
creative twist. Guests particularly love that they enter the restaurant via a
walk-through wine display. Another of the ship's main restaurants is Cyprus,
which celebrates the dishes and ingredients of the Mediterranean with an
emphasis on seafood. The ship's specialty restaurants offer a wide variety of
cuisines and atmospheres, ensuring that you'll be able to find the perfect spot
no matter what kind of dining experience you're after. As the name suggests,
Craft Social is the place to go for craft beers, inventive cocktails, and
gourmet bar snacks. The Rooftop Garden Grill gives you the chance to enjoy an
upscale take on backyard barbecue while taking in the ocean breeze. One of the
ship's most unexpected restaurants is Le Petit Chef, a groundbreaking
restaurant that features interactive, custom-made tables that display original
animation, which takes diners on a journey around the world, creating a true
fusion of dining and entertainment.
with everything else on the ship, the entertainment offered aboard Celebrity
Apex is second to none. The ship's largest entertainment venue is The Theatre, a
truly modern performance space designed to provide guests with an immersive
experience thanks to four stage areas and moving, projected backdrops. The
Theatre puts on a variety of shows, including full-scale musical productions
and pop concerts. The ship's most unique entertainment venue is the
boundary-defying Eden, a massive, multi-level event and dining space where you
might take a cooking class in the morning and watch an acrobatic musical
performance at night. Thanks to its three stories of windows, Eden is also an
ideal spot to simply relax and take in the ocean views.
windows in the world-class fitness center aboard Apex mean that you don't have
to miss out on ocean views while you get in your daily workout. Canyon
Ranch Fitness at SEA gives you access to state-of-the-art cardio equipment
as well as free weights and strength training machines. The fitness center also
has group exercise rooms where you can take classes like Core Sculpt, Zumba,
and Power Flow Yoga. If you prefer to get your heart pumping outside of the
gym, you can swim laps or hit the ship's outdoor jogging track, which will take
you from Deck 15 to Deck 16. Those who'd rather take it easy will find plenty
of laidback fun in the Rooftop Garden where you can sip a cocktail, play chess
on an enormous board, relax in a two-story, martini-shaped hot tub, or read
while lounging in the pool.
SEA Thermal Suite on Deck 14 is the latest evolution of Celebrity Cruises
iconic Persian Garden and the heart of the Apex's onboard spa. The space gives
guests access to eight nature-inspired therapeutic experiences like the
Rainfall Water Therapy Room, the Float Room, and the Crystalarium. The Spa
offers over 100 treatments designed to restore and rejuvenate. Massage
enthusiasts will want to book a Zero Gravity Immersion Massage, which is
performed on a high-tech table that makes you feel as though you're suspended
in air. The Spa is also home to stylists who can give you a trim or a complete
makeover. The heated tile loungers with a view are perfect for extending your
spa experience after your treatment.
Celebrity Shops aboard Apex are located just off the Grand Plaza on Deck 4. The
high-end boutiques feature fashion, jewelry, and accessories from some of the
world's most iconic brands. Cartier, Bulgari, and Tiffany & Co. all have
standalone stores offering jewelry and watches that are destined to become
treasured heirlooms. In addition to the permanent shops, most sailings also
feature trunk shows of luxury fashion, jewelry, or watches. Since onboard
shopping is tax and duty-free while at sea, it's the perfect opportunity to
pick up something special or grab gifts for friends and family.
Camp at Sea program ensures that there is plenty for kids to do aboard Apex.
With over 500 activities that change based on the ship's itinerary and
passengers, even the youngest cruisers will have an endlessly entertaining
vacation. Little ones will be delighted by Budsies, a program that turns
original artwork into a custom stuffed animal. Teens and tweens will love that
there is a space designed exclusively for them that is stuffed with Xboxes,
guitars, and movie screens. When it's time for some family fun, the Club on
Deck 5 hosts laser mazes, game shows, and other kid-friendly entertainment.
