Key West Florida gay cruise

 

Just the right amount of kitsch, Key West bursts with sunlight, boasts year-round tropical weather, and some of the clearest snorkeling and most preserved coral reef structures in the world. Cruise to Key West, Florida is one of the most popular ways to see this walkable, immersive city. It’s easy to feel at home in Key West among swaying palms and small fishing boats glittering off the harbor. Key West is also famously rough around the edges. Once mostly cut off from the rest of the world, it has persevered through countless hurricanes.

 

Cozumel Mexico gay cruise

 

Cruises to Cozumel, Mexico are popular for good reason—after all, Cozumel effortlessly balances its flashy side with a natural, unblemished beauty. The tropical climate promises close heat, plentiful sunshine, and pristine beaches for every kind of traveler.

Divers love Cozumel for its clear waters and preserved coral reefs. Beach lovers can rest and relax at beaches like El Cielo or Playa Palancar, while outdoor enthusiasts will find respite in the island’s jungles and national parks. There’s no shortage of beach bars, clubs, and dancing on the island for nightlife lovers, either. Cozumel may be one of Mexico’s biggest destinations, but it hasn’t lost its heart in the process.

Celebrity Apex - A Ship Designed to Leave the Future Behind

Celebrity Cruises, the company that brought you modern luxury cruising, has done it again. Introducing a revolutionary new ship that’s poised to change the way you experience the world—and a new class of ships designed to shatter all expectations.

With an innovative outward-facing design and visionary spaces that stand apart from anything else at sea (with the exception of her equally stunning sister, Celebrity Edge, of course), Celebrity Apex will revolutionize the way you experience the world.

Discover the unparalleled luxury of The Retreat, exclusively for all suite guests. Unwind in transformational accommodations that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living. Soar above the sea on the Magic Carpet. Surrender to the carefree pleasures of the Rooftop Garden. And embark on a culinary journey through an unrivaled collection of restaurants, bars, and lounges.

 

Celebrity Apex The Grand Plaza

The Grand Plaza
The Grand Plaza, a majestic, open, three-storey venue onboard our brand new Edge Class ships. Inspired by the piazzas of Italy and the invigorating energy of everyone coming together to savour a taste of the good life. Home to our incredible speciality restaurants, featured on different levels of the plaza - along with our popular Martini Bar, Café al Bacio, and the new Grand Plaza Café - the Grand Plaza is the ultimate gathering place on Edge Class.

 

Celebrity Apex Tuscan Restaurant

Dining & Bars
Brand new Edge Class ships are truly designed to change the way you experience the world - and such an unbelievable ship needs cuisine to match. Boasting a total of 29 distinctive restaurants, cafés, bars, and lounges to choose from, you’re sure to find a new favourite dish or cocktail every night of your holiday. With an incredible palate-pleasing collection of menus inspired by the destinations we visit, and visionary recipes created by our Michelin-starred chef Cornelius Gallagher, we’ll bring the flavours of the world to you - right onboard.

 

Celebrity Apex Entertainment

Entertainment
Entertainment onboard our Edge Class ships is just as revolutionary, just as technologically mind-blowing. It isn't something that starts and stops on a schedule. It lives and breathes, surprising you at every turn and making your holiday unforgettable.

Celebrity Edge Class ships surround you with engaging, spontaneous, and unforgettable entertainment moments that transport you from the everyday, every moment of your holiday.

 

Celebrity Apex Magic Carpet

Magic Carpet
Onboard our Edge Class ships, the highlight of our outward-facing vision is the Magic Carpet. The size of a tennis court, and reaching heights of 13 storeys above sea level, it is the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform. Majestically situated on the starboard side of our Edge Class ships, it is designed with comfortable seating, a full bar, and space for live music performances – so it truly is a destination itself. This spectacular space opens to several decks and transforms into a new and exciting venue depending on where it’s positioned.

 

Celebrity Apex Spa

Relaxation
Whether you want to clear your mind, fine-tune your body, reinvigorate your spirit - or all of the above - The Spa onboard our Edge Class ships is the unparalleled escape you deserve. The Spa elevates "me time" to a fine art, its design rivals any of the best spas in the world, and its nature-inspired approach to wellness includes an array of spa, beauty, and fitness experiences never before offered at sea.

 

Celebrity Apex Eden

Eden
Eden is unlike anything at sea – or anywhere. With three levels of sensory experiences, fully encased in glass and looking out to the ocean, it is a true window to the world. Where nature is effortlessly intertwined with design and performance art.

 

Celebrity Apex gay cruise pool

Pool Bar
Situated alongside the 25-yard lap pool (the largest in our fleet) and underneath an ever-changing, abstract mirror installation is the Pool Bar. An serene spot to relax, sip your favourite cocktail and take in your stunning surroundings.

 

Celebrity Apex Pool Deck

The Resort Deck
On The Resort Deck, which can be found on our Edge Class ships, you'll enjoy the main pool area, the new Rooftop Garden, the jogging track, and the adults-only Solarium. You’ll find endless ways to enjoy the outdoors and connect with the sea.

Gay Fort Lauderdale

Day 1 - Fort Lauderdale, Florida
One of the most desirable gay-friendly cities in Florida and a perfect destination for the gay visitor. Fort Lauderdale is home to beautiful sandy beaches and an exciting gay scene. Sometimes referred to as America’s Venice, most travelers stay close to the beach and the waterfront. Heading further into town you’ll find many restaurants, a good selection of hotels and numerous gay bars. The gay scene in Fort Lauderdale is expansive and diverse and boasts one of the largest scenes in Florida. The hub of the city’s gay community is Wilton Manors, a neighbourhood of Fort Lauderdale that is iconic for its high concentration of gay bars and clubs.

 

Gay Key West cruise

Day 2 - Key West, Florida
Key West is one of the most popular gay vacation spots in the USA. It’s located in one of the most remote parts of the country. Key West became a haven for artists – Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams numbered among its notable residents. Gay people were equally attracted by Key West’s bohemian vibe and the city’s official slogan is “One Human Family” and has been since 2000. You’ll find a big scene centred around several bars on Duval Street. The beaches are excellent, as is the food. The Floribbean style the island is famous for is very charming. Key West is a great destination for LGBT+ travelers of any age.

 

Gay cruise sea day

Day 3 - Day at Sea!
While at sea, take the time to recharge before the next adventure. Lounge by the pool, be spoiled at the spa, taste the delicacies or explore the venues on-board, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.

 

Caribbean gay cruise - Tulum, Mexico

Day 4 - Cozumel, Mexico
Amid the largest coral reef in the West, this Caribbean island lures anglers, divers, snorkelers, and beachgoers. Fish the flats or head out to blue water to hunt for big game—mahi-mahi, marlin, sailfish, and more. Curl up on the beach in a hammock with a cold one. At Playa Mia, you can even fly down Twin Twister waterslides.
Go cruise shopping for beautiful Mexican silver, amber, and other artisanal gifts in San Miguel. Or, hop a ferry to charming Playa del Carmen, on the mainland, and stroll along la Quinta Avenida for more inviting restaurants, bars, and shops. Down the coast from Playa, you can explore the ancient Maya city of Tulum, perched impressively on a cliff, overlooking the brilliant sea and powdery beach below.

 

Apex gay cruise sea day

Day 5 - Day at Sea!
Revolutionary experiences await you onboard. From the Magic Carpet that reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level to the 20 ft LED wall in The Theatre, Celebrity Apex breaks from traditional ship design. Explore 29 distinct restaurants, bars, and lounges that will awaken all your senses, and savor new globally inspired menus crafted by our Michelin-starred chefs.

 

Gay Fort Lauderdale cruise

Day 6 - Fort Lauderdale, Florida
During your cruise to gay friendly Fort Lauderdale, head out to the Everglades and enjoy Flamingo Gardens, home to pink flamingos, snarling alligators, black bears, and Florida panthers—plus exotic trees, butterfly gardens, and native flowers.
You'll find great shopping on Fort Lauderdale cruises. Look for high fashion at Galleria Fort Lauderdale, north of the port and blocks from the ocean. Head west to Sawgrass Mills for 350 designer outlets, specialty shops, and eateries. Spend a relaxing day in downtown Hollywood, south of the port, for quaint shops, sidewalk cafés, and events in the park.
