Default Solstice Activities

Hi all,

Another Solstice question. Anyone know the procedure for reserving space at the various onboard activities such as the glass blowing, ship navigation talk, etc? I was curious if you can do that online ( which I don't really see on the site) or if you have to do it onboard. Thanks.

Default Glass blowing exhibit

My favorite thing to do on the ship (never missed a show and stayed for all three to do their thing)... No, you don't need reservations, just showup early as it is extremely popular and Eric Meek and his two other artisans shlep more chairs over to accomodate the huge overflow crowds. They each do a piece.. each of the artisans shows off his/her talent in the piece. When we were there a young man from Ohio whose father was a glass blower did pieces with a sense of humor...the gentleman from the Carolinas did more conventional pieces and Eric did the more modern pieces..Sadly they are not for sale but they have raffle tickets and raffle a few of them off, no, I didn't win. ... in all honesty I wish they would have raffled many more.. Now, I understand and I have to check it out that on the Eclipse there is a shop.. On the Equinox and the Eclipse the viewing areas has been greatly expanded due to it's popularity.. If you went to Corning to visit the glass blowers (and I have) there is no doubt that you would not be exposed to three different methods.. and the best part a running commentary with each of the artists taking turns.

Yeah, it sound really interesting. I've watched lots of cable TV shows on the glass blowing and I'vw always wanted to see it in person. Can't wait. Thanks for the info.

Most things on board you do not have to reserve space for, might want to get there early to get a decent seat. Some activites such as backstage or kitchen tours for Captains Club members they did request a phone call ahead of time to reserve a spot.
