Video Transcript:

Hi everyone! Colleen McDaniel here, Editor-in-Chief of Cruise Critic.

Now today onboard Celebrity Apex I wanted to highlight the pool deck. They call this the Resort Deck and it really does feel like a resort. It's this great space with a really nice-sized pool, plenty of lounge chairs and gorgeous artwork everywhere. There's also a bar and, of course, the best selfie spot on board this ship.

So we are on Deck 15, which is a deck up from the Resort Deck. Now you get a really great view of the pool back here. You can see the Mast Grill, which offers hamburgers and hot dogs throughout the day, and you get a really great view of the cabanas, which are available for rental throughout the day. My favorite feature on this deck is actually the jogging track. As a runner, I really appreciate the fact that it has some undulations -- it's not just a lazy loop around the deck. It has a little up, a little down and offers a nice view no matter where you are.

Now behind me you can see what they call the Champagne Glass -- or the Martini Glass -- hot tubs. These are a really popular spot, especially after the sun goes down. They light up and they're absolutely beautiful.

If sun worshipping isn't your thing or if you just need a little space to chill, the adult-only area -- The Solarium -- is your spot. This is a totally relaxing space where you can grab a lounge chair, sit, read, nap and just enjoy the day while you're at sea.

Thanks for watching, and be sure to come back because we're gonna have more great videos of this great ship.
