Mixology classes

How long are the typical mixology sessions? How many drinks are usually involved per person? How tipsy does one get? I know I ask a lot about alcohol, but I swear I don't have a problem.

Thanks for the info. I laughed when I saw your comment about needing food because I joked with my DW about bringing a pizza from Luigi's..

We did a rum tasting on the Magic in Sessions - it was 4 shots and a rum runner and we could barely walk to the other side of the room when we were done! I think we sat for 30-60 minutes before they kicked us out because the dancers were practicing in the bar.

The bartender did provide us with Coke/Diet Coke and glasses to dilute the shots once we'd tasted them - which was good because there were a couple I really wasn't fond of. Of course, DH was more than happy to finish anything I didn't want...

The rum runner was excellent!

Our last cruise on the Dream we did the Mixology class in the Skyline lounge for an hour and immediately proceeded out the door to Evolution to the Tequila tasting. Talk about buzzzzzed.

I did the mixology class on the Fantasy in Feb. Daniel was the bartender and he was great. I totally lost track of time but I think it was a little over an hour. Each person got behind the bar and made a drink. It was a blast. I was more than tipsy when I left. I think we made 4 or 5 drinks and then a layered shot at the end. Was definitely worth the $15!!

We did mixology on the Dream. It was about an hour and fifteen minutes. We had a blast! We made our own drinks for each other and some people were putting a LOT of alcohol in them. Some people were more tipsy than others, and yes, there were some who were also finishing other's leftovers. I had a buzz, but was totally fine. Mixology was definitely one of the highlights of our cruise!

Sounds so fun!

If you don't finish all the drinks, can you take them with you?

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

Can you book these ahead of time, or do you have to wait until you are onboard?
