I have heard that the Celebrity's Century is in overhaul for a complete renovation - I also understand that a specialty restaurant will be added. Can anyone confirm that?

Yes, the Century is to emerge from drydock this June with a number of added enhancements. Here is an excerpt from their press release tauting the new Century dining options:

"A new specialty restaurant will present the elegant dining experience praised by guests on Celebrity's four Millennium-class ships, with a menu designed by Celebrity's longtime culinary and wine consultant, Master Chef Michel Roux. The venue will follow the style of Celebrity's "Olympic," "SS United States," "Normandie" and "Ocean Liners" restaurants. The "Casual Dining Boulevard" on the lido deck will be expanded to include a Sushi Cafe, made-to-order Pasta and Pizza Bar, and small ice cream parlor, along with buffet breakfasts, themed lunches, and dinner service with a casual dress code. Fans of light, healthy spa cuisine will find what they're seeking in a new Spa Cafe inspired by the venue of the same name on Celebrity's Millennium-class ships.

For evening cocktails, a sophisticated new Martini Bar will offer Celebrity's famed menu of more than 30 versions of the popular libation, while outside on the aft deck, a new bandstand and bar complete with tapas carts will offer the ultimate setting for romantic sailaways at sunset, complete with live music."

NancyN, thank you for the quote from the press release, my husband read the response and said, "wow that really sounds exciting, right up out alley" - I can't wait until September rolls around. Thank you.

Keep your eyes open when you get your mail. Just last week I got a mailing from Celebrity filling me in on all the changes to the Century.

Thanks for the update, I don't recall receiving any email from Celebrity regarding the Century Cruise ship, do you still have it or if not, can I impose on you to just encapsulate it so that I know what it said. Thanks so much.

Please let us know what it is like when you return. I have sailed on the Century 4 times and really like the layout. The only reason we quit was that it got to be in very rough condition. It has needed updating for the last several years. Tom

I would be more than happy to give you our review of the new Century, we sail on September 25 out of Barcelona which is one of my favorite cities. So gracious.

Etta,
I just posted a news update from Celebrity on our Cruise News Blog ( http://cruisereviews.typepad.com/ ) providing more details on the new specialty restaurant plus other dining and lounge upgrades. It all sounds great and I can't wait to check it out for myself.
Nancy
