Hi, It has been a few years since I did the pottery on the Coral Princess but it was a great laugh. A small group of you have a 'wheel' each and the teacher shows you how to throw a pot and you then have a go, and generally re-do it several times as it is harder than it looks. We had rough seas on the day we did it but I don't think I can totally blame that for the wonky vases. We made about 5 small bowls (yes some started as a vase in my head but ended up as a bowl
) The items are then put in the kiln to bake and dry and you meet a few days later to paint the items, they take them away again to dry the paint and we had a meeting with some drinks to collect them towards the end of the cruise. We did sign up as soon as it was in the patter. I'd say if you are interested in anything crafty, go for it.
