Sail Date: Jan 2023

We had a sunset veranda cabin on a 7 night western Caribbean cruise. The ship is a work of art with many beautiful venues. Our cabin was comfortable with a spacious deck that fit a table, two chairs and two loungers.

We had a premium drink package and had booked specialty dining on Le Petit Chef, Fine Cut and Edge on the Magic Carpet restaurants. We highly recommend dining at Fine Cut because the food and service were impeccable. We had dined at Le Petite Chef at Qsine on the Celebrity Millennium on two prior occasions and were looking forward to the experience on the Apex. Unfortunately, neither the food nor the atmosphere on the Apex were at the same level as the Millennium.

The Apex (and the other Edge Class ships) have opted for multiple main dining rooms (each with their own theme) instead of one large dining room. Unfortunately, this concept diminishes the cruise experience because you don't get to interact with other people and make new friends. The food at Oceanview Cafe was mediocre with limited options, especially at night. On the last full day at sea, the staff left us, and many other guests, feel like we had worn out our welcome because their priority was getting ready for the next cruise rather than giving us the full experience on our last day.

Cabin Review

Very comfortable cabin with large veranda.

Key West

If you stop in Key West you must stop at the Seaside Cafe at the Mansion for lunch. Best views and food in Key West.
