Spoiled absolutely rotten
"It is in a great location in the center of the ship, while seating at the bar is limited, there are plenty of tables and places to hang out adjacent to the bar.Prior to the cruise my family (we traveled with children aged 16, 18 and 19) envisioned us hanging out more in Eden, but I think the vibe there suffered because so few people were on the ship...."Read More

Questionable direction for Celabrity

After 21 Celebrity cruises we were looking forward to this post-Covid cruise. This shows we have previously been very satisfied with the Celebrity product. We had Celebrity flights and transfers, couldn't find any rep when coming out of arrivals, then the coach driver got lost. We are Captain's club Elite Plus but the only priority boarding was for Suite passengers. Captain's club benefits ...

The Celebrity Edge class ships have an amazing suite option. We have sailed in a Sky Suite (twice) and the cost to benefit ratio is super. You pay more than a regular cabin but not nearly as much as with some other lines. The ship-within-a-ship concept is real on these ships. As part of your fare, you get extra amenities and well-equipped cabins. The exclusive Luminae restaurant is fine, but the ...

We chose the Celebrity Apex September 1, 2022, sailing from Amsterdam, to explore England, Ireland and Northern Ireland. The original itinerary included a stop in Dublin, which was removed from our itinerary rather late in the game. We decided to take the cruise anyway, with an added stop in Portland/Dorset, UK. The ports were fabulous, and we mostly did non-ship shore excursions. The two ship's ...

We had originally booked this cruise in 2019 for a 2020 sailing. At that time the ship was Reflection and we were going to St Petersburg. We missed out on St Petersburg but we gained the Apex, a beautiful ship. I have been on a Millennium class ship before and I really like the Apex. The Apex has a different layout which feels more intimate. Some of the old favorites remain; the martini bar is ...

Great ship, beautiful decor but very understaffed and therefore horrible service in main restaurants.

Ship and decor Beautiful ship with nice and interesting corners and venues. Lots of new design elements, some of which though are bordering overly done. The main atrium, although at first very impressive, does not work as a heart of the ship, or place to meet. The Eden is a nice big area to relax, listen to music and enjoy the view thru its huge glass walls. . Entertainment The main ...

We found this itinerary appealing as Iceland and Ireland (and Norway the following cruise) were countries we had never visited and they would be cooler than our hot desert summer. It was our first E class ship and after reading opinions on this ship it was exciting to see for ourselves. Neither the ship nor ports disappointed! Love Amsterdam as the embarkation port - easy to fly to, train ...

This may have been the first near-capacity cruise that Celebrity Apex has had since its introduction and unfortunately it showed. The crew, though friendly and professional, appeared to be stretched thin. Service was slow in the MDRs and the food in the main buffet was below par. The biggest issue was the fact that Celebrity did not enforce the Covid rules they said they were going to ...

Well it sure was'nt the carribbean...lol. It was a sedate crowd with very little to do on sea days. The shows at night were very good and plenty of seating with 50% occupancy on the ship. The main dining room food was hit or miss and some of the meat was very tough. Eden was fabulous with excellent food and service. Steakhouse also very good. We should not have to pay extra for a nice dinner. ...

Beautiful Ship, but ...

I've previously sailed on the Equniox and thought it a much better ship. The Apex was beautiful, but not enough common areas to hang out to read a book or gather at a table to play a game. No promenade, no library, no ice bar. 14 decks compared to 19 on the Equinox, seems they took away common area for rooms. I appreciate we were only at 50% capacity, otherwise it would have been impossible to ...

I just finished Celebrity's survey that they email you post-cruise, but it did not give me a chance to say what I really wanted about this much anticipated cruise. Instead, this is going to be a really long review so I can get it all said! As an introduction, I am soon to be 65 and my husband is soon to be 68 with our son who is 18 and starting college in August. We live outside Philadelphia ...
