The new Martini Bar onboard Celebrity’s new Century will boast
the first “ice bar” concept at sea when the ship emerges on May 30
from its $55 million, five-week revitalization.
Designed by Celebrity’s Fleet Design department, Century’s
Martini Bar will feature a liquid wall that freezes to form a
sparkling crystalline appearance and a bar counter that freezes
into ice-cold stone, while a solid block of ice will creatively
display bottles of liquor behind the bar. Kinetic lighting
throughout the room will constantly change the venue’s color and
appearance. Century’s trendy new Martini Bar will offer Celebrity’s
famed menu of more than 30 versions of the popular libation.
Other new clubs and lounges on the Century include an updated
fleet-wide favorite, Cova Cafe, the seagoing version of the stylish
coffeehouse in the fashion district of Milan, Italy. Cova Cafe
guests can enjoy fresh pastries and cookies to complement the menu
of coffees, teas and other beverages by day, and at night, the
space transforms to a romantic, lamp-lit wine bar, complete with
Century’s outdoor Sunset Bar on the top deck, all the way aft,
