First off, we had a fantastic cruise that at times was covid silly, but at the end of the cruise 100% of passengers and cruise guests tested negative. Masks worn at all times when moving about, but not eating or drinking. Getting to Athens and through civic test at the pier had its challenges, but relax you are on vacation, just follow the rules and paperwork. We civic tested before we left ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We originally were due to travel to Bali our trip of a lifetime and as the borders remained closed due to Covid we decided last minute to book a Cruise . From the moment we arrived at the port until we disembarked we were in what can only be described as a surreal world. As first time cruisers we didn't know what to expect but we spent the week with smiles on our faces. We were booked into an ...

We swapped to this cruise as our cruise on Apex ath the beginning of November from Fort Lauderdale was looking unlikey due to the entry restrictions to the USA. We arrived slightly early and were able to straight for our Covid test which was complementary. 20 mins later the results were in, just make sure you have pre registered all your details with the tester's app. Another 20 mins and ...

After a couple of covid bumps and bruises booked the Apex because it seemed like Greece was a go. Never been to Greece and never on an E class ship so win/win. A few extra hoops to travel during covid, but my oh my well worth it. Brand new ship roughly 950 passengers on a ship that can hold 3k and sites in Greece that were not overflowing with massive crowds. I was totally blown away by Apex. ...

There is nothing that can compare to spending time with friends. Everything else is icing on the cake. We spent three days in Athens and seven nights on the Apex with longtime friends. On this adventure, however, the icing on the cake was delicious. For us at least, The ship and service were unmatched compared to all previous cruises. Traveling with only 900 guests on a ship that normally ...

Our first cruise after the covid lock down. And one of the very first cruises of the Celebrity Apex itself. The ship came into service in 2020 but due to the covid crisis couldn't sail with passengers before summer 2021. We sailed with her through the Greek waters and it was like a Greek myth. Great weather, wonderful islands, a great ship and an excellent service. We were only 400 passengers and ...

We originally chose this cruise as it was visiting Israel. Unfortunately, due to unrest in the country and Covid issues, the Israel ports were replaced with Mykonos and Cyprus. Then, as the sail date got closer, Cyprus was replaced with Dubrovnik Croatia. About a week before sail date, we had decided to cancel. Just a few hours before contacting Celebrity and Delta Airlines to cancel, we ...

DW & I reeled in the fears and booked this cruise when the itinerary was Greece & Israel knowing the whole trip was a gamble w/ this pandemic thang. Many said we were crazy to even try but ultimately things worked out better than expected. Gots to flex like a Gumby doll and roll with it if you wants to travel these days and was it ever good to go back Jack and Do It Again. Brings me back to ...

The ship is new - modern - full of variety. The main dining room, now is four main dining rooms. Speciality restaurants are available at an additional cost but there is substantial choice without a 'need; to visit these. Celebrity staff are back providing an excellent servvice, and staff were really vigilant in practicing mask wearing. It made one feel just that little bit safer. The ...
