Celebrity Apex Homeports In Southampton For First-Ever Season From The UK

Celebrity Apex has arrived in Southampton, becoming the first Edge-class ship for the Celebrity Cruises fleet to homeport in the UK.

The European season for this ship starts with an eight-night voyage to the Norwegian Fjords, exploring destinations such as Bruges in Belgium, Geiranger, and Kristiansand in Norway.

Throughout the summer, Celebrity Apex will offer four-to-13-night sailings, covering Northern Europe and the Canary Islands. A standout journey is a 12-night cruise through the Norwegian Fjords and Arctic Circle.

Entertainment on board features three exclusive stage shows: Rockumentary, Tree of Life, and Crystallize. Guests can also enjoy cabaret shows and various themed activities, and there’s plenty to enjoy during the day too.

And there’s also The Retreat – the stunning ship-within-a-ship concept where the most luxurious suites at sea can be found, along with plenty of beautiful shared spaces exclusively for the use of Retreat guests.

And I’ll be onboard the ship next week for a short cruise to see what she’s like – make sure you’re following me on Facebook to see more from the ship as I explore!
