Celebrity Cruises Begins Century Upgrade

Celebrity Cruises has begun a $55 million revitalization project of the Century that will wrap up at the end of May. Among the changes guests will see after the work is done is a new specialty restaurant named Murano that will pay homage to its name with chandeliers handmade using glass from Murano, which has been known for its glasswork since the 13th century. The line's longtime culinary and wine consultant is designing the menu for the 66-seat restaurant, master chef Michel Roux. The line says the cuisine and service will follow the style of Celebrity's Millennium-class specialty restaurants. Several other dining spots are being added, including a 76-seat sushi bar, Cava Café, and Century's Ocean Grill. The ship's two-level Grand Restaurant is being entirely refurbished. As for staterooms, the vessel will have 314 new verandas, 14 new suites, 10 new staterooms and an expanded number of Concierge Class-category staterooms. Visit [www.celebrity.com].
