Just got a press release from Celebtity about thier new Solstice. Another first in the cruise industry. There puting a half-acre lawn on the top deck with real grass. A country club type environment called The Lawn Club. Says you can choose from bocce ball, croquet, practicing your putting skills, bring a picnic basket or just squish the grass between your toes. And there aill be a Sunset Lounge there. Looks really inviting on the slide show.

What will they come up with next for a new ship?

Cheers, Neil

Well this is just what I need...a bunch of men playing bocce and waving their hands around and arguing in an Italian fashion.

I don't even know what bocce ball is but I now know it's played in the grass!

Now I can go on a cruise and be awaken with someone mowing and weedeating the lawn! At least they are replacing a little 02. I know it is probably not real turf!

Gary, they say in the release it's real grass and in the dipiction it looks like the KY bluegrass you'd see on a putting green.

Another new feature is to be a section devoded the "Hot Glass". The histroy and craft of glass blowing. Apparently Corning has something to do with the permanent new fixture on this ship.

Well I'am a semi retired Landscape Contractor. I would not want the job of caring for that lawn. High traffic area, wind, salts, drinks, sun, ect. It will be a hard turf to maintain IMHO. At least they can choose a good soil. Irrigation will have to be at night, that could lead to fungus problems.

Gary, you could come out of retirement and offer to tend the lawn a few times a year for free cruises!!!

Cheers, Neil
