Celebrity Apex Cruises
Celebrity Apex is the second of Celebrity’s Edge Class ships, arriving in April 2020. The ship is recognisable for its cantilevered side platform – Magic Carpet – that lowers and raises to four levels for fast embarkation and tendering, for a specialty restaurant, as an al fresco expansion of lido deck, and “Dinner on the Edge” for 90 guests. Embarkation uses facial recognition. The Celebrity smart phone app executes all your requests – including opening your cabin door.
Celebrity Apex presents a complete re-think of cruise ship engineering, features and design. British architect Tom Wright (of Burj Al Arab in Dubai fame) designed the Magic Carpet, Rooftop Garden, Solarium, and Resort Deck. Balconies have become “Infinite Verandas” that provide either a full-height-glass view over the water edge; or with closed bi-fold glass doors become an outdoor ‘French-balcony’ and inside living area. With the first option, your stateroom has unobstructed sea views but with the comfort of full AC and 23% more floor space as compared with Solstice Class ships in the fleet.
The vessel is designed to cater to all ages – from singles, to multi-generational families (as it has many inter-connecting staterooms). Deck 2’s expansive multi-purpose ‘foyer’ facilitates fast embarkation, and which during the cruise can be set up for lectures, teen activities, and conferences. The Retreat, a suite-only enclave, features a private pool on its sundeck. The Retreat Lounge brings a heightened level of style and sophistication, along with personal butler service.
