News › Celebrity Apex day and a half St Petersburg shore tour

Celebrity Apex is planning to dock 4 times in St Petersburg, RUSSIA during 2022 cruise season. Its' first visit on June 01 (Wednesday) - June 02 (Thursday) is quite unusual. Istead of spending in St Petersburg 2 full days and one night the ship leaves the port at already 1pm or 13:00 on the second day which makes the visit to last day and a half. This means that we can not offer our Celebrity Apex guests our standart St Petersburg two-day small group and private shore tour packages. Especially for this unique visit we have designed our Celebrity Apex day and a half St Petersburg small group shore tour itinerary. In order to make it even more comfortable we will be gathering groups of maximum 14 people and provide modern 18-seater buses. Please note that actual tour sequence may be re-arranged due to museums' booking availability, traffic, etc.
