I cannot imagine why they think glass blowing demos are a wonderful innovention! There's a place that does it just round the corner from my home! Can't believe the idea would entice anyone onto a ship! Surely they could have come up with something better?

I must admit that the glass-blowing did not totally "float my boat" but amazingly standing bare-foot in the grass did and there are so many other things that are so good to do on that ship. I feel that it will impress anyone and outgun all other similarly costed ships. (Even if you have got a glass-blower around the corner....sorry, unfair). ......Neil.

Yes, and they also have Restaurants, swimming pools, bars, theatres and hotel rooms around the corner from your home, maybe you should stay there.

Why be so rude? We were asked for our comments and I gave mine. It was meant to be light-hearted!

My wife and I are long-standing and loyal Celebrity fans and we are looking forward to going on Solstice or Equinox in the near future. I would agree with Rae that glass blowing seems totally out of context on a quality cruise ship - could it be linked to the possibility of selling the glass products produced on board? This is the only logical answer I can think of!! Peter, Nottingham.

Yes, what a waste of space and quite dangerous because of the terrific heat of the furnaces it could be a likely cause for a huge fire at sea. I would not travel on it!!

Like Hollwood Movies, they're now at their wits end trying to out-do ea.other and to find something ANYthing novel! What next? Horse races at sea? Why not? How about Hang Gliding? No seriously...what next?! It's so silly. Why not concentrate on giving value and cutting down on Fuel Surcharges, rather than go for "Bells & Whistles" nonsense? I agree with the person who sees a real fire hazard at sea, due to the heat involved in glass-blowing.

Yes I do agree. They do glass blowing in Blackpool. They would be better spending the money on a bit more entertainment in the show lounges. Julie - Leeds West Yorkshire.

Hello, Yes we normally take a couple of cruises a year. We have sailed on a number of ships, P & O, MSC,Oceania,Regent, and Cunard. Without doubt Celebrity wins hands down for value for money.Service,Food, and everything about them we think is a class above the rest. We are booked on the Solstice in May 2009.

We will be going on Soltice in a few months time and it was not the glass blowing that influenced our reason for selecting the cruise, it was a new style of ship compared to the Century and Millennium class ones we have been on and would like to see where Solstice class compares, plus two weeks away and much warmer weather was the great attraction. I doubt we would book a cruise because you could rock climb or ice skate these are extras there is you are that way inclined.

River cruising for the young

By Ruth Gale

River cruising has traditionally been more popular with an older generation but this looks set to change with the introduction of a river cruise product for age 21-45 year olds.Uniworld have designed a ship to cater for this gap in the market and while some might not agree I think it is an excellent idea.If you arent aware of their product Uniworld are a luxury cruise brand so we arent talking club 18-30s here with foam parties and bar crawlsWhat they will offer is an upmarket cruise experien...

This is what I used to do on board when i was a junior photographer: this is a typical sea day that would also involve a formal night.I would normally have to open the photo gallery in the morning, i would generally start in the photo lab at around 08:00 in the morning and sort out all the pictures taken the day before. I would then pack all the customers own photos that were sent to the lab the previous evening.Having done that 2 of us would go to the photo gallery and set all the new pictur...
