Designed to bring a transformative experience for modern travelers, Celebrity Apex was introduced through the steel cutting ceremony at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. Predicted to be the next great thing to hit the luxury cruise ship market, Celebrity Apex will be launched second to the industry’s awaited Celebrity Edge.
The President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said that “welcoming Celebrity Apex into our family with the leadership team was a very special moment, especially when we all signed the ship silhouette cut from the first piece of steel.”
She added: “We are so grateful for our partnership with Chantiers de l’Alantique and are thrilled to work on another very special ship together. The success and momentum for Celebrity Edge has been incredible, and with Celebrity Apex we will yet again show how we are taking our brand to the next level. We are offering our guests the best way to experience the world in modern luxury style.”
Celebrity Edge is set to debut in December 2018, which as well brings an innovative and modern approach to luxury cruising. With her spacious staterooms, a rooftop garden, an elegant spa, several specialty restaurants, and modernized technology, Celebrity Edge raises the bar for Celebrity Apex to follow in the spring of 2020.
General Manager of Chantiers de l’Atlantique, Laurent Castaing stated: “We are proud to celebrate the launch of another incredible Edge Class ship with Celebrity Cruises. The brand is known for many industry firsts so it’s fitting that Celebrity Apex is the first to participate in steel cutting ceremony under our new name Chantiers de l’Atlantique, another milestone of the great partnership we have built together.”
