Celebrity Cruises largest ever UK deployment has been unveiled featuring the inaugural season of new ship Celebrity Apex and the fresh from dry-dock newly revolutionised Celebrity Silhouette.
Jo Rzymowska, vice president and managing director, Celebrity Cruises UK, Ireland and Asia explains:
“2020 is a landmark year for Celebrity Cruises. The commitment and support of our trade partners is recognised in our largest ever investment into the UK and Ireland. I’m incredibly excited to launch, name and operate Celebrity Apex out of Southampton for its mini season and first ever cruises in April 2020.
“Plus, Celebrity Silhouette will be one of the first ships to unveil a cutting edge, refreshed look, thanks to our $500 million ‘Revolution’ investment, which sees us take the fleet to the Edge. 2020 is an exciting culmination of Celebrity Cruises’ vision for the growth of our business in Europe.”
Our second ship in the coveted Edge-class, Celebrity Apex will preview and be officially named in Southampton in April 2020. Five cruises to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe ranging from seven to ten nights will then be on offer before Celebrity Apex repositions to Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome) to continue its European season.
Returning to Southampton for a third consecutive season, Celebrity Silhouette’s guests embarking in Southampton in April 2020 will be the first to enjoy our multi-million-dollar Revolution upgrade programme. Celebrity Silhouette will boast two new Suite categories, a new exclusive outdoor lounge exclusively for Suite Class guests in the Retreat Sundeck, and a stylish makeover throughout the ship.
