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 live music.

Century’s outdoor Sunset Bar on the top deck, all the way aft, will feature a full service bar designed of teak, stone and stainless steel, topped with an arched-glass canopy. The Bar will offer an assortment of fresh tapas and appetizers with cocktails and other beverages, in addition to sea breezes and panoramic views.

Teen travelers will have a lounge all their own, with Century’s new X-Treme teen lounge and video arcade. The dedicated space will include a dance floor, video arcade, juice bar, jukebox and karaoke, along with computers offering Internet access.

All other clubs and lounges onboard the new Century will be entirely refurbished, including the Crystal Lounge, Michael’s Club jazz/piano bar, Rendezvous Lounge, and Hemispheres observation lounge and disco.

Century will emerge May 30 from an extensive five-week dry-dock period with the luxurious “Murano” specialty restaurant, 314 new verandas, 14 new suites, 10 new staterooms ranging from inside to veranda category, an expanded number of Concierge Class category staterooms and a series of features and amenities that typify the line’s acclaimed Millennium-class fleet.

Celebrity’s Century will set sail on a nine-night “Best of Europe” cruise departing May 30, along with a series of 12-night Baltic and 10- and 11-night Mediterranean sailings, a 13-night “Best of Europe” voyage, and a seven-night Norwegian Fjords cruise.

Century also will be one of the first Celebrity ships to offer short (four and five-night) cruises from the Port of Miami, beginning in November.
