I did Mixology on the Dream last month and had an awesome time. Plenty of alcohol for the $20!

We've done wine, martini, tequila and mixology on various cruises. They were all great, tons of fun and well worth the money!

You sign up at guest services once you are on the cruise. My wife and I did the Mixology on the Wonder this September. Here is a picture of our first four drinks:


That's a Martini, I believe some kind of Mojito, a Cadillac Margarita, and a Long Island Iced Tea. Not pictured is a Lemon Drop shot. This was $15, and we drank all 5 drinks within an hour. My wife left giggling for like an hour. After a quick trip to Pinocchio's Pizza we both took a two hour nap.

My wife doesn't really drink, but after this class, she wants to do another one next cruise, as well as the Mojito class.

Sounds like fun! Are there other options available? For instance, I'd enjoy the champagne tasting, my husband not so much. Could he come along, and just drink coffee or something?He'd be interested in learning, but not so much drinking. And vice versa if it came to something else, like beer.

There was a pregnant wife in our group who did not drink. I believe she brought in a coffee. They didn't charge her, she just hung out and watched us all get silly. She really didn't catch on to why the joke about her being the designated driver was so much funnier when it was told for the 5th time after as many drinks.

We have done the wine, champagne, beer, tequila/margarita, and mixology. All were good. The mixology and champagne ones were our favorite.

We had the same thing happen with our mixology class. We were both feeling pretty good. We went up to the pool deck, ate pizza, and slept on the chair by the pool for a couple hours. Slept right through dinner service.

After reading all of the comments, I am even more excited about our Fantasy cruise in a couple of weeks (Dec 1st)! My brother, SIL and mom will be on the cruise and, though my mom won't do the hard liquor tastings, she'll have a blast with the champagne and wine tastings. I need to let my brother know that his first stop upon boarding is Guest Services to get us signed up!!

I'm a huge champagne gal and tequila gal... can't wait to try the different tequilas!

Sign me up!!

Michelle

Oh, I forgot to mention that DH and DBIL did both the whiskey and cognac tasting this past cruise. They're really enjoyed those too. DH said that he liked the cognac tasting better.

Update on Whiskey, Mixology, & Tequila Tasting!

We did the Whiskey Tasting...which was ok only because the bartender's knowledge of whiskey (he was very young) was mostly from what he picked up from Google...he pretty straight about it...however, it was still fun.

Mixology...great time...our bartender, Tibor, was phenomanal...he's originally from Hungary. Very very experienced and knowledgable...though I believe MIL and I make better mojitos...everything else was AMAZING!

Tequila/Margarita Tasting AMAZING...DH went to it reluctantly. Both of us ready for the worst and thinking of our previous bad experiences with tequila...OH BOY was this a learning experience! Our bartender was Oscar from Colombia. Truly a learing experience. It's not the tequila that will get you sick but the quality of the tequila. I'm just going to say that not only did we leave with a different perpective about tequila, but we left loving it. We even had Gran Patrón Burdeos straight up for $55 one drink...and we have never spent that much $ in one drink...lol

Oscar soon became our best friend and we were sad to leave him behind, along with all the wonderful CM that made our vacation more special than the last.

In each of the tastings we socialized with wonderful families...

Looking forward to our next cruise and which tasting we will sign up for...
