Day 3
Cork, Ireland

Affectionately referred to as ‘The real capital of Ireland’, Cork is filled with the lore, tradition, and good cheer of Ireland at its best. For history buffs, Cork is also a great find.

Days 4-5
At sea

You've got another two days at sea today to relax. Make time to visit The Magic Carpet, a cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level. Majestically situated on the starboard side of the ship, it makes Celebrity Apex’s profile recognisable from miles away. Designed with comfortable seating, a full bar, and space for live music performances, it truly is a destination itself.

Day 6
Reykjavik, Iceland

Sail to the exciting capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, today, for a full day of exploration. It's well worth its fabulous culinary scene – including lobster feasts during summer – and artsy boutiques. Or, explore the nearby natural world with everything from 4WD adventures to horseback rides, pausing at such Golden Circle icons as Thingvellir National Park and the Gullfoss waterfall. Finish off the day with a soak in the famous blue waters of the Blue Lagoon before returning to the ship.

Day 7
Isafjordur, Iceland

Isafjordur, the largest town in the Westfjords peninsula, is known for its breath-taking landscapes. Here you can enjoy and wide variety of outdoor activities from biking, hiking, kayaking and horseback riding to whale watching. Or explore the history of the town that started as a trading post in the 16th century with growth triggered in the 19th century by salt fish production which is still the most important industry for the town.

Day 8
Akureyri, Iceland

Akureyri is home to a thriving café scene, gourmet restaurants and buzzing nightlife. What’s more, Iceland's eternal Midnight Sun, appearing from May-August, affords you even more time to explore. Close to the city, it's well worth visiting Grimsey Island, home to only 92 residents and thousands of sea birds, and learning about local culture at the fascinating Herring Era Museum. Most spectacular, however, are the dramatic landscapes and breath-taking scenes you’ll find just outside the city, from thundering waterfalls to snow-capped mountains and sweeping fjords. Explore the likes of ancient lava formations, the famous Godafoss waterfall, hot springs and geothermal landscapes with a private driver or on an off-road 4WD adventure.
