VACAYA & CELEBRITY:
PUSHING MODERN TRAVEL TO BOLD NEW HEIGHTS

VACAYA is making a quantum leap up in the quality of ships we’ll be sailing for our annual big-ship Caribbean Cruise – taking you to the edge of what’s possible and then beyond!

Sailing Feb 17-24, 2024 for 7 magical nights from Fort Lauderdale to Puerto Rico, St. Croix, and Antigua, Apex will inspire you to reimagine everything you’ve ever known about cruising. Like VACAYA has done since the beginning, Apex also rewrites the playbook. And The V Team is thoughtfully reinventing the VACAYA experience from the ground up to match this stunning ship’s innovative design. From fresh new ways to dine to its immersive play spaces, Apex with VACAYA will unfold surprisingly and with all-new moments of wonder and awe. While you’ll certainly recognize a few common threads that tie all Celebrity ships together (like Café al Bacio, Blu, and Luminae), get ready to be wowed by premium touches from stem to stern!

Join 2,900+ friends from around the world for a fun-filled week with VACAYA on the high seas once booking opens to our Alumni Nov 8 and to the General Public Dec 15.

So, without any further ado, it’s time to take a peek (or is it peak with Apex?) at your next VACAYA vacation, our most thrilling yet!

And with all the added VACAYA benefits – from signature entertainment and welcoming parties to endless social activities and non-stop fun – it’s also an incredible value.

MYTH BUSTING UNLIMITED BEVERAGE PACKAGES

Ship
Like her industry-changing sister ship Celebrity Edge, which was named one of TIME Magazine’s “World’s Greatest Places” in her 2019 debut season, Celebrity Apex features innovative outward-facing design and visionary spaces from world-renowned designers, connecting Vacayans to the breathtaking world around them like never before.

The ship’s onboard experience stands apart from anything else at sea, and feeds today’s travel wanderlust with:

29 Restaurants & Lounges

Apex features an unrivaled culinary repertoire of 29 distinct restaurants, bars, and lounges, including the brand-new Craft Social Bar (The V Team’s favorite!). Globally-inspired menus crafted by Michelin-starred chefs bring the flavors of the world straight to the plate, providing an epicurean journey unmatched at sea.

COMPLIMENTARY DINING
In addition to Apex’s four main restaurants, you’ll find an array of complimentary dining options, as well. From Eden Café to The Spa Café and from Apex’s market-place inspired Oceanview Café to the poolside Mast Grill, there’s every opportunity to please your palate morning, noon, and night.

SPECIALTY DINING
Celebrity has stretched their culinary imaginations to introduce exciting new menus and dishes across Apex’s seven delicious specialty restaurants, from Fine Cut Steakhouse to Raw on 5 to Eden Restaurant and more. You’ll also discover an entirely new Le Petit Chef animated experience in Le Grand Bistro that will bring your tabletop to life. All this is just a taste of the culinary delights that await you in the specialty restaurants aboard Apex. Service charge applies.

The Magic Carpet

The Magic Carpet soars cantilevered above the sea and offers Vacayans uninterrupted vistas while sipping cocktails or having dinner and more!

At the very top of the ship, the Magic Carpet becomes an extraordinary venue high in the sky where we host mouthwatering experiences such as Dinner on the Edge. Down to Deck 14, the Magic Carpet becomes a stunning extension of the main pool area, while on Deck 5, it serves as an unforgettable, open-air dining experience. Then at the bottom on Deck 2, the Magic Carpet becomes an extension of luxury at The Destination Gateway – an unrivaled platform to board tenders to shore. And Apex’s tenders? Plush. Lush. And oh so fine. Hands down, the best at sea.

The Retreat

If you’re looking for a truly special experience, upgrading to a suite that’s part of The Retreat will get you additional perks that seem almost never-ending. The Retreat boasts stunning accommodations, a private restaurant, and an exclusive lounge and sundeck to rival any high-end resort. In addition, a dedicated team of butlers, attendants, and concierges on-hand 24×7 ensures everything is taken care of while on vacation for those guests who’ve chosen the “Suite Life.”

Infinite Verandas

The most transformational aspect of Apex’s stateroom design is the introduction of the Infinite Veranda, where with the touch of a button, your entire living space becomes the veranda, letting you walk right out to the water’s edge. What had once been the separated veranda space is now part of your room – making Apex’s staterooms among the most spacious at sea. For those who’ve sailed the rivers of Europe before, this innovative veranda design will be quite familiar.

Environmental Advocacy

VACAYA is proud to partner with Celebrity for many reasons, but one of the most important is their commitment to the environment. Celebrity Apex has developed the Blue Green promise to support sustainable and resilient ocean communities. From curbing emissions to reducing propeller noise, Apex employs technologies to minimize environmental impacts.
Itinerary
Discover the magic of the Caribbean on this custom-built itinerary that includes one of the hottest gay cities, San Juan, Puerto Rico and two of the world’s most magical islands in Saint Croix and Antigua. With 3 tantalizing days at sea, you’ll quickly realize that while ports are fun, our days (and nights) at sea are the place to be for the most creative party themes and dazzling lights, sound, and lasers that’ll keep you dancing til’ dawn.
