While Royal Caribbean has been busy with their Royal Advantage initiative, (passing on Oasis-class innovations to other ships within the fleet), sister company Celebrity Cruise Line is continuing to “solsticize”, that is bring popular Solstice-class amenities to their other ships.
Three Millennium-class ships, the Millennium, Infinity, and Summit are scheduled to receive some of these exciting upgrades between now and the spring of 2012. One big change will be the addition of the extremely popular Aqua Class balcony cabins. Booking this cabin gives you upgraded bathroom amenities, complimentary bottled water and complimentary access to the Persian Gardens in the spa area.
Guests will look forward to welcoming Qsine, the most creative restaurant at sea, to these ships. The menu at Qsine consists of familiar dishes and comfort food artfully and whimsically presented. For example, Chitinis are Chinese savories served in a martini glass! And ordering is more fun when you do it on an iPad!
Other favorite eateries finding their way to these ships are Bistro on Five and Café al Bacio & Gelateria. Bistro serves paninis and fabulous crepes. The pistachio and nutella crepes and the banana crepes are very yummy, but you can also opt to build your own concoction! Creamy gelato, fresh pastries, and gourmet coffee selections are available at the Cafe al Bacio.
A lively place to hang out in the evening will be the Martini Bar where you can choose from 26 varieties of this classic drink. Adjacent to the Martini Bar is Crush, an intimate alcove that offers spectacular vodka and caviar on an ice-filled table.
Expect renovations to be complete on the Infinity by December 2011, on the Summit by January 2012 and the Millennium by may 2012."
