Exciting news from Celebrity Cruises…… they have announced that Celebrity Apex is going to be christened in Southampton in 2020! There will also be a number of Southampton sailings to take advantage of which is great news for us here in the UK!

This will be a first for Celebrity Cruises, as for this period they will have 2 ships sailing from the UK! Celebrity Silhouette will again be sailing from Southampton in 2020 after a successful summer season this year.

Apex will be sister ship to Celebrity Edge and will be the second of 4 planned Edge Class ships.

Itineraries will be on sale in November 2018 so keep your eyes peeled for the release of these! The Southampton sailings are sure to be popular, so early booking is key!

This news was delivered in a press conference in France while on a shipyard visit to see how Celebrity Edge is coming along.

Cruise Club UK’s very own Andy Cookson was lucky enough to be on this visit to the dockyard and came back with only great things to say about the highly anticipated Celebrity Edge which launches in November this year.

Some innovations on board include the ‘Infinite Balcony’s’ which are designed to bring the outdoors indoors and have bi folding doors which connect the balcony to the cabin itself, seamlessly. There will be the ‘Magic Carpet’ which is a movable deck designed to be used in a variety of ways; such as a bar on the resort deck or an outside speciality restaurant extension and will also be used as a tender launch. On the pool deck there will be 2 huge ‘Martini Glass’ style Jacuzzi’s which will look down on to the deck below.
