Your first steps onto Apex will take your breath away! This gleaming jewel impresses from the go. And with our THIS IS ME party on the upper decks tonight, you’ll get your first chance to connect with other Vacayans. Check out all the amazing things to do in Fort Lauderdale HERE.
SUN-FILLED DAY & SIZZLING NIGHT AT SEA
It’s our first sea day and you just know we’ve got some incredible moments in store. How will you spend this day? By the pool with cocktails in-hand? Or in the theater with everyone’s favorite Vacayan, Sister Helen Holy? The choice is entirely yours to make. We do know, however, that EVERYONE will be at our first V-Dance this afternoon. So be ready!
SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO
You’re finally starting to melt into all Apex has to offer. After a morning and early afternoon poolside, we finally arrive at our first port of call – the unmistakably beautiful and oh so gay San Juan! You’ll have your choice of excursions today OR you can just hit the Old Town on your own and explore all this fascinating city has to offer.
SAINT CROIX, US VIRGIN ISLANDS
Saint Croix offers a truly mellow island experience and a nice break from bigger, more crowded beach destinations. Beaches are abundant across the island; Butler Bay, Dorsch Beach, and Frederiksted Beach, Coakley Bay Beach, and Cane Bay Beach are all perfect for relaxed sunbathing and fun. Buck Island Reef National Monument and Sandy Point Wildlife Refuge aren’t far from the port at Frederiksted and make a great day trip for nature lovers. Foodies will certainly enjoy the mix of Cajun and Caribbean cuisines found here.
ST. JOHN’S, ANTIGUA
Colorful St. John’s is home to 365 white sandy beaches, historic testaments to British colonial occupation, and kitschy beach bars around every corner. St. John’s is perfect for lounging beachside, snorkeling and diving, or hiking to see Fort Barrington’s watchful eye overlooking the city. Tours to historic sites like Fort James and St. John’s Cathedral make for a great way to spend the morning, leaving plenty of time in the afternoon for tasty Caribbean cuisine and seafood, where the fresh catch of the day rules local menus.
SHENANIGAN-FILLED DAY AT SEA
After 3 days of island hopping, it’s time to make the most of our beautiful ship. Today, you can hit the spa, check out Eden for the first time, dance the afternoon away on the Resort Deck, or simply sleep in. You do you today. But tonight… be ready for our biggest party of the week!
ONE LAST RELAXING DAY AT SEA
After last night’s party and the after-party, today is all about recharging before heading home tomorrow. But before we wrap this up, our signature SHE’S A MESS V-DANCE will hit the upper decks! SHE’S A MESS is easy… just throw on one piece of every costume you’ve worn this week. This is our fun way of celebrating all the weird and whacky costumes worn over the week, so get crazy, Vacayans!
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA USA
We return to where it all started – beautiful Fort Lauderdale. We encourage you to stick around a few days to enjoy all this wonderful LGBT+ haven has to offer. Our friends at VISIT LAUDERDALE have compiled a great list of the amazing accommodations, bars, and restaurants the city offers HERE. If you’re flying home today, we recommend flights at 11am or later. Port Everglades is a short 15-minute taxi/Uber ride away from FLL Airport and you’ll have options to disembark Apex starting just before 8am.
Apex features luxury accommodations that range from modern two-story villas with plunge pools to staterooms with Infinite Verandas that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living, all carefully curated and designed by the award-winning Kelly Hoppen.
When you book online directly with VACAYA, you’ll enjoy 24×7 access to your booking information, Pay-In-Full Bonus Offers, No-Interest Monthly Payments, AIRLINE DISCOUNTS, and our BEST RATE GUARANTEE!
While our Solo Traveling with Ease Program (STEP) has been sunset, we offer some great recommendations for finding a roommate HERE.
Suite inclusions on standard non-charter sailings vary from the suite inclusions available on charter cruises. To better understand what’s included with each type of suite, we’ve created this helpful guide for you…

TRIP INSURANCE: GET IT!
With Covid-19 in our lives for the foreseeable future, we now have an even stronger rationale for recommending Trip Insurance. “Cancel For Any Reason” insurance has quickly risen in popularity, and for good reason. If you decide you don’t want to travel after the cancellation penalty period has begun, this type of insurance covers most if not all of your cancellation fee. It’s also a great way to help honor your Social Contract with VACAYA.
So go ahead and buy that bucket list trip, but protect your health and your investment by purchasing Trip Insurance. ❤️
