Celebrity Apex makes UK home port debut

Celebrity Apex has become Celebrity Cruises’ first Edge-class ship to homeport in Southampton.

The 2,910-passenger vessel, built in 2020 as the second in the Edge series, will run a summer season of departures from the port.

The first itinerary is an eight-night sailing to the Norwegian fjords with other destinations to be served until October including the Canary Islands and northern Europe.

Cruises range in duration from four to 13 nights.

Celebrity Cruises president aura Hodges Bethge said: “We’re bringing one of our most innovative ships, Celebrity Apex, to Southampton, providing guests the opportunity to sail in style directly from the UK. 

“It’s an exciting time as we elevate cruising from the region, enabling our guests to explore and restore with premium facilities, elevated food and drink experiences, and exciting activities and entertainment.”
