Sail from Southampton all summer long on board Celebrity Apex in 2024
Summer may be in full swing, but it’s never too early to start booking unforgettable cruises for your clients next year – particularly when one of Celebrity Cruises’ newest ships, Celebrity Apex, will be sailing out of Southampton for the whole summer season.
With voyages departing between May and October 2024, the ship will be sailing to some of Europe’s most sought-after destinations, from the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands to northern Europe and Iceland.
Itineraries consist of shorter four-day voyages to spots including the Netherlands and Belgium, and longer 13-day voyages to give guests the chance to see Portugal, Spain and the Balearics in one trip.
But it’s not all about the destinations. Celebrity Apex is the second ship in Celebrity Cruises’ Edge series, boasting some of the most incredible facilities at sea, all while guests enjoy optimum comfort and service.
There are 29 restaurants, bars and lounges on board, one of which is the Magic Carpet – a platform suspended on the outside of the ship that moves between decks two and 16, serving as a restaurant or late-night bar and boasting unparalleled ocean views.
And for those clients who would like an extra dose of luxury on their voyage, recommend The Retreat, where they will have access to an exclusive restaurant, all-suite accommodation, a private terrace and more.
