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.

Whenever someone says they have seen a bad review on cruise critic I always tell them to take it with a pinch of salt as what one person loves another may hate.Some of us like marmite some of us don’t – I am firmly in the don’t category on this one. Some like watching soaps I certainly don’t. Some like going to the gym and I definitely don’t.Having looked through the reviews on our website I have found a 2* review and a 5* review for exactly the same ship on the ...

For those of you that know me or have read my blog in the past, you will know that each year my family and I like to head to the mountains for a ski holiday.

After several weeks of answering to Mummumcan I have.food/drink/entertainment etc etc etc I decided that we would all benefit from a holiday at...

It’s been a long time since I told you what was happening in the world of Betsy. Well, I have been working hard as always since Christmas but I have just enjoyed my first bit of time off this year and I was so ready for a break !!!!I haven’t had the greatest of years so far, my husband was diagnosed with DVT’s in February and has been undergoing various specialist and hospital appointments as they were classed as unprovoked, no cause for them. On a recent test it showed a fr...
