Godmother revealed for Celebrity Apex

Reshma Suajani, founder and CEO of international non-profit Girls Who Code and author of international bestseller 'Brave, Not Perfect', has been named as the Godmother for Celebrity Apex.

She will name the new ship at an official inaugural ceremony in Southampton on 30 March, marking the first Celebrity Cruises ship to be launched in the UK in over a decade.

Saujani is a lifelong activist who surged onto the political scene as the first Indian American woman to run for US Congress in 2010.

Her viral TED talk and international bestseller have sparked a worldwide conversation about how girls are raised and inspired countless women to 'fear less, fail more and live better'.

"Reshma is bridging the gap in the historically male-dominated technology industry," said Celebrity president and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. "She is evolving the image of what a computer programmer looks like and does, inspiring a whole new generation of girls and women to bravely pursue this field. Because she is a game-changing visionary, she is the perfect Godmother for a game-changing ship like Celebrity Apex."

The first Edge Series Godmother, who inaugurated Celebrity Edge in November 2018, was Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, renowned for her advocacy of educational opportunities for girls everywhere.

Celebrity Apex will begin an inaugural mini-season from Southampton in April 2020 with five sailings to Northern Europe destinations and then spend the summer sailing seven-to-12-night itineraries in the Mediterranean.

In November, Celebrity Apex will reposition to Fort Lauderdale for a winter season of week-long Caribbean sailings.
