Varied nightlife and glass blowing on tap for new Celebrity Solstice

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On November - 30 - 2007

Artist rendering of the Celebrity Solstice (Image courtesy of Celebrity Cruises) Celebrity Cruises has revealed that passengers aboard its newest ship Celebrity Solstice will have eight new venues in which to spend their evenings and a little extra artisitic fun during the day.

The new luxury night spots include the Cellar Masters wine bar, the Ensemble Lounge, Passport Bar, Quasar and the Sky Observation Lounge where cruise holiday passengers can dance the night away in a room that changes colour to reflect the event of the evening – red for tango and blue for ballroom.

Classic Celebrity Cruises bars have also been adapted for the new ship, such as the Martini Bar & Crush which is inspired by Celebrity Century’s Martini Bar.

Celebrity Solstice will also feature a Fortunes Casino and Michel’s Club which plays jazz music and serves single malt, scotch and cognac for those with a taste for luxury cruises.

“Our Solstice-class fleet will present several entirely new venues, along with creative twists on some of our guests’ long-time favourites. We think our guests will find the design and style in every space not only inviting, but also absolutely stunning,” commented Celebrity Cruises president Dan Hanrahan.

Additionally, Celebrity is collaborating with the Corning Museum of Glass to bring glass-blowing to sea when the museum’s ‘Hot Glass Show’ debuts on Celebrity Solstice in December next year. The show will provide demonstrations and a narrated performance of glass-blowing, housed in an outdoor studio on the top deck of Celebrity Solstice. Three resident ‘gaffers’(glass-blowing artists) will educate and entertain with glass-making shows, lectures and workshops.

The Corning Museum of Glass, based in Corning, N.Y., is considered a leader in education, research and scholarship for glass. Its collection holds more than 45,000 objects spanning 3,500 years of creation.

  1. Thanks for the heads up on this.

    I really like the sound of the lights changing colours to fit the occasion.

    I just returned from a vacation in Jamaica, where I was staying in Mo-Bay. Had the pleasure of being exposed to many cruisers (I’m a bit of a cruise liner spotter), well beats train spotting!

    This is my first time on your blog, so I’ll be taking a look around, looks like you’ve got plenty off content to keep me distracted for a long while.

    Again, thanks for information. I’d be happy to receive any new updates you put out referring to cruising, so feel free to shoot me off an email if you wish.
