Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO, Celebrity Cruises, explains:
“When Celebrity Apex launches in Southampton in 2020 it will be another incredible moment for our company and for the UK & Ireland market, especially as it will be ten years since we last named and operated a brand 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.”
Boasting some of the most luxurious accommodations, the Edge-class of ships - including Celebrity Apex – has been built to offer the ultimate cruise experience - featuring more suites than any other Celebrity Cruises ship. The two Iconic Suites will be the most spacious found anywhere in the fleet featuring over 2,500 square feet of space both indoors and out, plus 82 feet of wraparound glass windows giving uninterrupted views out to sea from the lounge, bedroom and dining room.

This includes four main dining restaurants, one exclusive Suite Class and one exclusive AquaClass restaurant, and seven brand new specialty restaurants.
Currently being built at the Chantier de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France, Celebrity Apex will enjoy its official launch celebrations in Southampton, including the prestigious naming ceremony.
