Western Mediterranean Sailing on an Epic New Ship

Embark on an unforgettable 12-day cruise on this Platinum DreamTrip from Rome to Barcelona — with stops & fascinating excursions in Istanbul, Santorini, Valleta & more — aboard the brand-new Celebrity Apex℠. Book by April 8.

About Your Trip

Price displayed above is per person based on double occupancy and does not include US$133.22 in government fees and taxes per person. Upgraded cabin categories are available at an additional cost. Click “Update Price” for final price per person, which includes government fees and taxes.



Set off from Civitavecchia, the gateway to the eternal city of Rome, on an 11-night cruise on the spectacular Celebrity Apex. Each day of your Platinum DreamTrip brings a new destination as the ship drops anchor in 6 distinct, fascinating ports. At every stop, you’ll go on an exciting excursion featuring visits to top sites in each city.

But first, you’ll have 2 fabulous days at sea — as you cruise, you’re sure to be wowed by all your ship has to offer! Get ready to experience something truly special on the much-hyped Celebrity Apex, the second ship in the Edge® series. The ship itself is a design marvel, starting with its unique, outward facing setup offering panoramic vistas from many venues. Then there’s the Magic Carpet℠, the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that can be raised or lowered to 3 of the ship’s decks, creating an extension over the water — Deck 16, for instance, lets you experience “Dinner on the Edge.”

Your first stops are Istanbul, Turkey — home to countless historic structures like the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Galata Tower —and Ephesus, Turkey, former commercial center of the Roman Empire. You’ll head next to Santorini, Greece, the astonishing, jewel-toned remnant of a volcanic eruption, followed by bustling Mykonos, Greece’s most popular island getaway. Then, admire classic Greek highlights in Athens — relics from its world-shaping era as ancient Greece’s greatest city-state include the Acropolis (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and the extensive collections in the National Archaeological Museum. The fun continues in Valletta on the island of Malta, with plenty of time to explore this fortified city that’s home to 320 monuments of historical and cultural importance.

Spend the next day at sea getting to know more of your remarkable vessel. When hunger strikes, you can take a cooking class at the glass-enclosed Eden space, using fresh herbs grown right on the ship. Or, unwind in a whimsical martini glass-shaped hot tub with a view — the dual hot tubs are elevated 2 stories overlooking the pool area. In the evening, why not check out the nighttime aerial entertainment or a show in the 2-level theater? Before your time on board comes to an end, you’ll be treated to a fun party exclusively for DreamTrippers!

After arriving in Barcelona, Spain — known for its vibrant Catalan culture and the unmistakable architecture of Antoni Gaudi, including Sagrada Familia — you’ll disembark ready to plan your next amazing cruise!

What we love:
• The Theatre on your ship is the most technologically advanced onboard theater yet with a 20-foot-tall (6-meter-tall) 4K LED screen that curves 180 feet (55 meters) around the stage, eight 20K laser projectors and much more.
• St. John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta offers several intriguing features, such as a floor of 400 marble tombstones and 9 chapels, each with distinctive characteristics. 
• Santorini is surrounded by steep cliffs that slope into the Aegean Sea, but its architecture is the true treasure, as most homes have the signature crisp white Cycladic features which are heavily associated with this beautiful Greek island. 
• You can maximize your enjoyment on dry land too! Just download the DreamTrips™ app to access DreamTrips Local at your departure or arrival ports — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select port-city spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!
