With only two months to go until the world welcomes Celebrity Apex to the seas, Celebrity Cruises have released the much-anticipated details of what new features we can expect onboard the new Edge Class ship.
“Celebrity Edge changed the cruise industry and raised the standard for ‘new luxury’ vacations,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises “Celebrity Apex – the second ship in our revolutionary Edge series – goes even further. It takes every onboard experience to the very peak of what’s possible at sea.”
Celebrity Cruises are planning to further enhance their culinary palate on Celebrity Apex with evolved concepts, new delicacies and new menu offerings from Celebrity’s Michelin-starred Chef Cornelius Gallagher. This will include:
Craft Social Bar is a relaxed, casual bar space that will be offering draft cocktails, wines on tap and more than 50 of the world’s rarest craft beers.
A new 3D digital animation dining experience at Le Grand Bistro. A fusion of entertainment and dining, the digital menu offers such dishes as spring pea soup and filet mignon, while diners enjoy a story that chronicles the life adventures of Le Petit Chef.
A new Eden dining experience. A remarkable three-story indoor natural Wonderland, with sweeping panoramic outward-facing windows. It will feature a unique culinary journey of all-new a la carte appetizers, entrees and desserts.
In addition, new menu items have been created for Raw on 5, Magic Carpet, Fine Cut Steakhouse, Rooftop Garden Grill and the four Main Restaurants.
Celebrity Apex will also be debuting exciting new entertainment offerings, in the stunning, contemporary design for The Theatre, including a 23-foot-tall 4K LED screen curving around the stage and a 20-foot tall Tree of Life, complete with over 3,000 LED leaves. This technology plays a starring role in several all-new production shows and programming exclusive to Celebrity Apex.
Rockumentary will celebrate some of the greatest classic rock moments in history. Tree of Life will take guests on a journey of relatable life moments, illuminated by the changing seasons of the tree, and set to pop-rock music. Crystalize energizes the night with an inspiring and visually stunning performance featuring light, laser projections, custom video content, music, dance, and incredible aerial acrobatics.
Widely regarded as the most unique space on any cruise ship, Eden indulges every sense with a variety of entirely new experiences that creatively transform the environment throughout the day from morning, noon to night.
Evening entertainment can also be found at The Club, with the debut of Caravan, a more intimate and alluring evening cabaret-style production.
Celebrity Apex will see a new spa management collaboration with OneSpaWorld and a new wellness programme for the modern traveller throughout the onboard spa and sanctuary, designed by Kelly Hoppen. Highlights include:
F45 Training, a unique 45-minute, station-based, heartrate monitored team training workout.
A new Women in Wellness well-being program centring on the emotional, physical and spiritual health.
An array of new spa offerings, including more than 120 soothing treatments and a new collection of state-of-the-art treatment tables.
Celebrity Apex debuts Spring 2020 with a mini-season of five sailings to European destinations. After the Northern Europe mini-season, the Apex will spend the rest of its inaugural Summer sailing seven to twelve night itineraries in the Mediterranean, with visits to bucket-list destinations such as Lisbon, Portugal and Monte Carlo.
