The Apex is a gorgeous ship and the cruise was amazing with only 452 people on board (a 2910 passenger ship). The Covid testing and precautions onboard were excellent. The all inclusive WIFI is not any good; it won't handle posting on social media.

The all inclusive free WIFI is horrible. You can''t do anything except send text msgs and check some email. The upper tier INDULGE WIFI streaming should be reserved for STREAMING Netflix movies, etc..... and the WIFI you get in the all inclusive should be able to handle FB and Instagram posting.... which is totally a lower bandwidth reqt than streaming movies. I had to pay an extra $105 to upgrade my WIFI to the stream pkg!
