Celebrity Apex Inaugural – November 2- November 4, 2021
There is something to be said for the excitement you feel prior to departing for a trip. After a two year hiatus due to COVID-19, the butterflies of anticipation were in full force as we arrived at the gangway for the Apex. The irony was not lost on boarding a Celebrity ship and receiving a Hollywood rivaled welcome from all the staff and crew. We were happy, they were happy and for those 2 nights “normal” had returned.
With time working against us, we set out to tour the ship in all of her glory from bow to stern. From the luxury of the Retreat, to the heart of the Grand Plaza we put our step counters to the test before our attendance was requested for the official naming ceremony. As the largest bottle of champagne we’ve ever seen (called a Sovereign for those interested) collided with the hull, the sun shone brightly as the Apex’s Godmother Reshma Sujani shared her words of wisdom and vision for female empowerment.
