The newest Celebrity cruise ship, Celebrity Apex, joined its sister ship, Celebrity Edge, the leading Edge-class ship, in the Bahamas in the fall of 2020 — but the ship’s arrival was slightly delayed.
Celebrity Apex was originally scheduled to set sail in March 2020, debuting in Southhampton, complete with passengers, but the ship’s Caribbean sailings were put off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While a virtual celebration took place earlier in the year, it wasn’t until Fall 2020 that Celebrity Apex finally made its way to the Bahamas, where it was greeted by not only Celebrity Edge, but also Celebrity Reflection, Celebrity Silhouette, Celebrity Equinox and Celebrity Summit. A naming is scheduled for October 2020 in Fort Lauderdale.
If you’ve had your eye on this cruise ship for a while, and can’t wait to sail aboard Celebrity Apex once the ship finally does open for passenger sailings, here’s everything you need to know.
