FROM THE BRIDGE
Just for you—your exclusive Captain’s Club Newsletter is here
April is right around the corner, and we’re thrilled to welcome Celebrity ApexSM to Europe for her inaugural sailing. The second ship in our highly anticipated Celebrity Edge® Series is filled with exciting experiences from bow to stern. Here’s an exclusive look at what’s in store—including details about the ship’s inspirational godmother, new culinary surprises, and revolutionary entertainment that’s unlike anything else at sea. Once again, we’ve pushed the envelope, and we’re excited to share it with loyal guests like you.
For a game-changing ship like Celebrity Apex, we wanted a game-changing godmother. We found that in Reshma Saujani, bestselling author and the Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code. This international nonprofit organization is working to close the gender gap in technology while teaching girls confidence and bravery through coding. It has already reached 185,000 girls in all 50 states, Canada, India, and the U.K. We’re also teaming up with Reshma and Girls Who Code to offer educational coding programs and other enriching experiences aboard Celebrity Apex and Celebrity Edge®.
Celebrity Apex offers a world of restaurants, bars, and lounges. In fact, there’s over 29 distinct food and beverage experiences. Pull up a seat at our newest venue, Craft Social Bar, with dozens of craft brews, wines, and cocktails on tap. Savor the choicest cuts of meat and freshest premium seafood at Fine Cut Steakhouse. Watch your tabletop come to life at the new animated Le Petit ChefTM experience and menu. And of course, toast each meal with a pairing from the most awarded wine collection at sea. Here’s a taste of what’s on board:
Day and night, Celebrity ApexSM is an endlessly entertaining destination in itself. We’re introducing an array of new shows in our most state-of-the-art theater yet, with a curved, 180-foot-wide 4K LED screen that completely surrounds you in the experience. In Eden’s breathtaking, three-story space, you’ll enjoy brand new daytime activities that inspire you to learn, create, and play—and new immersive performances to intrigue you each night. There’s plenty more to explore, but here’s an exciting sneak peek:
We’re excited to announce our new 2022 Galapagos sailings. Few places in the world have remained as truly unspoiled as the Galapagos Islands. And there’s no better way to discover this amazing archipelago than with us. We’ve created a showcase of the most inspiring spaces at sea, resulting in a distinct Galapagos Island fleet. Learn more about Celebrity FloraSM, the first all-suites, mega-yacht designed especially for these islands; Celebrity Xpedition®, the original explorer; and Celebrity Xploration®, our most intimate escape.

By now, you’ve heard about The Celebrity RevolutionSM—our $500-million modernization that will transform every one of our award-winning ships. On February 14, Celebrity Silhouette® embarked on her first post-Revolution sailing. Guests can now experience all The Retreat® has to offer right on board Silhouette—including every stunning suite with the addition of four new Sunset Suites; personalized butler service for every Retreat guest; and an exclusive lounge, formerly known as Michael’s Club. Plus, a private restaurant for Retreat guests featuring menus crafted by our Michelin-starred chefs, including signature dishes from chef Daniel Boulud. We’ve also made stylish upgrades to every stateroom, including new veranda furniture, eXhaleTM bedding featuring luxurious Cashmere mattresses, and more.
Eight additional staterooms were added, including four inside single staterooms designed with the solo traveler in mind. And since we’re always looking for new ways to open your world through globally inspired culinary experiences, we’ve enhanced Silhouette’s restaurants, lounges, and public spaces. You can gather for a toast at the newly reimagined Passport Bar. Discover more than 40 craft beers, along with creative cocktails and gourmet comfort food at our inviting, new Craft Social (formerly Cellar Masters). Soak up some of the best views aboard over cocktails at an upgraded Sunset Bar. And enjoy the updated Lawn Club, featuring eight refreshed Alcoves, an oversized outdoor movie screen, and a new shaded lounge area complete with banquette seating and hammocks.
We love to hear from our members about their experiences onboard Celebrity. What keeps you sailing on Celebrity? What’s your favorite ship and why? This month we caught up with the 2019 Top Cruisers on Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Infinity. See what they had to say about their time onboard.
“We love sailing with the Celebrity fleet, particularly Solstice, as we have a great rapport with the officers and crew. Also, we are very impressed with the standard of the ship, the officers and crew, cabins, food and service. It is the level that we have come to expect and appreciate of a 1st class cruise line. We recommend [Celebrity] cruise line and Solstice to anyone.”
“We sailed on Celebrity Infinity this fall for 62 consecutive days. We enjoyed the unique itinerary and shopping at many new locations for us. The entire staff was so accommodating and acknowledged us throughout the ship. Best staff we have ever encountered during our many years of cruising. They made us feel like family on the ship. Our cabin attendant Tanja was the most wonderful person during the cruise, always asking if we needed anything else done. She always had a smile. The food on the ship was also excellent. The chefs would stop by frequently to see how everything was tasting”
