Blue Eye

Dive into a mesmerizing underwater world on Ponant's Explorer-class ships with the Blue Eye lounge. Nestled below the waterline, this dark and multi-sensory space boasts two whale eye-shaped portholes that provide captivating views of marine life. As you relax on the "body listening" couches, which vibrate to the soothing sounds of undersea acoustics, you'll be transported to an ethereal realm of oceanic enchantment. Ooh la la!

Rising Tide

Take your bar-hopping experience to new heights on Royal Caribbean's Oasis-class ships with the Rising Tide bar. This one-of-a-kind venue takes a maximum of 32 guests on a smooth 20-minute vertical ride between three decks. Aptly dubbed the "coolest way to move between Central Park and the Royal Promenade," it offers breathtaking views and an unforgettable journey that will leave you in awe.

Bionic Bar ®

Step into the future of mixology on Royal Caribbean's Bionic Bar®. Here, two robotic mixologists are at your service, shaking, stirring, and pouring a wide array of cocktails. From beloved classics to custom creations of your own design, these robot bartenders are masters of their craft. Witness their precision and flair as they seamlessly blend your chosen ingredients into liquid perfection. It's a cocktail experience unlike any other!

Skyy® Vodka Ice Bar

Seeking an icy escape in the midst of tropical paradises? Look no further than the Skyy® Vodka Ice Bar on select Norwegian Cruise Line ships. Step into an arctic wonderland, where the temperature is a frosty -8 degrees Celsius. Bartenders skillfully craft Skyy® vodka drinks served in ice glasses, while the bar, walls, and seats are all crafted from ice as well. It's an immersive and chilling experience that will send shivers of delight down your spine!

Metropolitan Bar

Indulge your senses in sustainable sophistication at the Metropolitan Bar on Norwegian Cruise Line's new Norwegian Prima ship. This avant-garde establishment combines surplus ingredients with sustainable spirits to create craft cocktails that are both innovative and environmentally conscious. Savor the flavors of a cocktail made from discarded banana skins or leftover croissants, or opt for responsibly-sourced gin and biodynamic wine. It's a journey of sustainability and taste that will impress!

Eden Bar

Immerse yourself in nature's beauty at the Eden Bar on Celebrity Edge. With its bright and airy ambiance, three stories of windows offering panoramic ocean views, and a centerpiece plant library, this multi-level space is a haven for cocktail enthusiasts. Bartenders at the Eden Bar take pride in their craft, garnishing bespoke cocktails with fresh herbs delicately picked from the living wall. Let the tranquility of the surroundings and the artistry of mixology transport you to a state of pure bliss.
