New dining venues
"Guests sailing onboard Celebrity Constellation can expect to embark on a gastronomic adventure that promises to have their senses humming with the addition of the ever-popular restaurant Qsine," the company said in a statement. Everything here is “uniquely unordinary,” from the inventive twists of favorite dishes to the playfully quirky ambiance and the iPad® menus. Qsine will reinvent the space currently known as Ocean Liners Restaurant, following a complete renovation and modernization of the space.
Introducing the newest dining venue in the Celebrity fleet – Top Deck Burger Bar. Located up on the Pool Deck in the space formally known as Mast Grill, guests can enjoy gourmet burgers that will have their taste buds begging for more. From the mouthwatering Celebrity Signature Burger to the BYOB (Build Your Own Burger), there is an extensive menu of toppings and condiments.
The popular Rooftop Terrace will also be making its debut onboard Celebrity Constellation. Intimate and inviting, the relaxing space features chic, cozy furniture, surprising artistic elements, and a large outdoor soundscape and movie screen. The Rooftop Terrace is also home to the iconic gastronomic adventure A Taste of Film – a unique fusion of film and food.
Celebrity is bringing updated technology to staterooms with the addition of new RFID door locks. Guests can now tap their SeaPass card against their door lock, which will automatically unlock for them.
Every Penthouse and Royal Suite will get updated with new powder room refreshes, including porcelain tiled floors, new glimmering fixtures, marble surfaces, and cozy seats. The rest of the suite areas will get refreshed furnishings like plush furniture, new artwork, luxurious carpeting, drapes, and bed linens – promising guests the most comfortable, relaxing modern luxury experience.
Additionally, guests can discover some of the top names in fashion and merchandise in the completely revitalized shopping area. The fresh space will rival even the chicest boulevards around the world. After guests have refreshed their wardrobe, they are encouraged to visit The Studio, Celebrity’s new high-end portrait studio ideal for capturing vacation photos.
These incredible new venues and updates are scheduled to premiere on May 26, 2017, when Celebrity Constellation emerges from her dry-dock. The revitalization comes just in time for what promises to be an extraordinary summer for anyone lucky enough to sail onboard the enhanced ship, which is scheduled to visit some of the most stunning, breathtaking destinations in the Mediterranean, the Arabian Coast, India, and the Far East.
