Naming ceremony for Celebrity Apex

Celebrity Cruises’ new ship named in Fort Lauderdale before kicking off inaugural season

Celebrity Cruises’ new luxury ship Celebrity Apex has been named during a special ceremony in Fort Lauderdale.

The naming ceremony on Tuesday (November 2) was led by the ship’s godmother, Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code, and author of ‘Brave, Not Perfect’.

After the ceremony, the ship set sail on its inaugural Caribbean season, visiting Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Belize, and Grand Caymans.

Celebrity Apex features two-storey villa accommodation with plunge pools, 29 restaurants and lounges, a spa and luxury boutiques, including Montblanc, Bvlgari, Cartier and more.

Other ship highlights include The Magic Carpet, a cantilevered space above the sea which offers guests great views while sipping cocktails or having dinner.

The new luxury liner also boasts The Retreat which has suite accommodation, a private restaurant, an exclusive lounge and sundeck, as well as a team of hosts to look after guests 24 hours a day.

“We are elated to welcome Celebrity Apex to our family of magnificent vessels that push the boundaries of what’s possible on a cruise ship,” said Richard Fain, chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group.

Celebrity Cruises is also offering holidaymakers 50 per cent off a cruise fare for a second guest in any stateroom onboard its new luxury fleet for anyone booking onto sailings between December 1, 2021, and April 30, 2023, when booking before December 13, 2021.
