The Apex is a beautiful ship, but it has short comings in some key areas important to onboard life. First is the infinite balcony. Yes it adds space to the cabin but it has too many design flaws. You can't open the window without shutting down your AC, and when you sit in the chairs and look out, there is a broad metal bar in the middle of your view. Cabins were good with good storage. Our cabin was quiet but the couple we were with, had to be moved to another floor due to popping sounds in their wall. The theatre was fantastic. Beautiful screen and special effects, made for super shows. Enjoyed all the entertainment. Ship was well below 50% capacity, but the entertainment venues such as Grand Plaza were always overcrowded during prime times, and the Oceanview cafe was near full during prime dining times. Don't know how they can handle a full capacity ship. Shops need a broader range of merchandise, including necessities to meet passenger needs. Rooftop Garden movie screen was great, but the landscaping needs to be revised so people can see the screen from all the seating without being blocked by a shrub. Walking track of varied slope was great idea. We dined in all of the main dining rooms and the food and service was very good, but again we had a well under capcity ship. Would we sail it again? Maybe.
