Celebrity Cruises’ newest ship, Celebrity Apex, has arrived in Southampton where crew are preparing for its first transatlantic sailing to Miami.
Celebrity Apex was due to have been the first of the line’s ships to be launched in the UK for over a decade, prior to the pandemic. However, the proposed naming ceremony on 30 March had to be scrapped, as did its planned summer cruises in the Mediterranean.
The ship was welcomed into the UK south coast port by Jo Rzymowska, vp & md, EMEA for Celebrity Cruises from onboard a launch which tracked her arrival.
Built in Saint-Nazaire and handed over to Celebrity Cruises in March, Celebrity Apex finally left Chantiers de l’Atlantique in August.
It will now re-position to the US for the winter.
