Celebrity Apex adds some longer Mediterranean sailings in debut season

Celebrity Apex, the sister of 2018's Celebrity Edge, added new sailings to its 2020 debut season in Europe

Celebrity Cruises introduced four longer Mediterranean itineraries for the new Celebrity Apex in 2020.

Among these are three 10- and 11-night Eastern Mediterranean sailings and a new 11-night Western Mediterranean sailing.

Greece, Malta and Turkey

Two 11-night Greece, Malta and Turkey cruises depart from Civitavecchia (Rome) visiting Istanbul, Kusadasi (for Ephesus), Santorini, Mykonos, Piraeus (for Athens), Valletta (Malta) and Barcelona. On the 10-night Greece, Malta and Turkey cruise, destinations include Barcelona, Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, Bodrum, Piraeus, Naples and Civitavecchia.

Spain, France, Italian Riviera

The one-of-a-kind 11-night Spain, France and Italian Riviera voyage sails round-trip Barcelona to Marseille, Monte Carlo, Santa Margherita (Italy), Civitavecchia, Naples, Palma de Mallorca and Valencia.

Celebrity Apex will debut in Southampton with a mini season of five sailings to destinations including the Norwegian Fjords and the northern coasts of Spain and Portugal. A new 10-night ‘Capital Cities Cruise’ includes visits to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Oslo and Paris.

After this Northern Europe mini season, Celebrity Apex will spend the rest of its inaugural summer on seven- to 12-night cruises in the Mediterranean, with visits to cities like Lisbon, Istanbul, Monte Carlo and Cannes.

Six-ship season includes Celebrity Edge

Celebrity Apex is among six Celebrity vessels in Europe next year, including sister ship Celebrity Edge, and Celebrity Silhouette and Celebrity Constellation, both refreshed in ‘Celebrity Revolution’ upgrades.

As earlier reported, a new port for the line is Trieste, Italy, and Celebrity will operate its first mini season of sailings from Lisbon that include overnight stays in the city.

Country-immersive sailings are also being introduced focused on Italy and Greece. As well, 2020 marks Celebrity’s return to Istanbul and Kusadasi, and to Oslo. Overnight stays will be available in Oslo, Dublin and Reykjavik, among 48 overnight port calls in Europe.
