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?

I may be the minority here but I would never do Mixology again. DH and I were there as well as a group of 5 other people. The group of 5 had a blast because they were able to taste each others drink that they made. Of course DH and I made one each so that's all we had. $30 for two drinks and a shot wasn't a deal to me.

My dad and I did a back-2-back on the Fantasy, March 16th-23rd and March 23rd-30th and on the March 16th cruise on the second sea day we did the Martini tasting and then the Mixology, and to top that off we got free drink at captains reception so we were pretty hungover that night. For both tasting we got 5 drinks, but big, but not small. If we did only one tasting that day we would have been fine. The week after we only did Martini tasting since Mixology filled up fast. And we were good

That seems like a weird class, when we went about 4 people went behind the bar and made a type of drink for everyone, may I ask what ship you were on?

Every post I have read about Mixology class mentions having like 5 drinks. So if there are only two people together then you only get the two drinks?

Is what the pp describing normal or unusual? It is very different than any other post I have read regarding mixology. Can you shed some light on this for me? DH and I will be on the Dream in May and was really looking forward to this class.

I did Mixology on the Dream and had a blast! We made ALL the drinks ourselves and the final one we each got a turn to mix it behind the bar. Plus he made his specialty for us so in total we had at least five or six drinks EACH.

I also did the Martini tasting on the Magic. That was a blast. She set up the mini martini glasses but then gave us 2 of each so we pretty much 5 full martinis in an hour's time.

Right after Martini we did the mojito tasting with the same cast member. we mixed and drank 4 full mojitos. I was definitely drunk after doing 2 tastings back to back.

I've aslo done the Tequila tasting. That isn't for the faint of heart. Almost 3 full shots of tequila (silver, anejo & reposado) plus 2 full size margaritas. They also mixed a margarita in my friends mouth which was hilarious.

And finally, Don't Judge Me please because reading this post makes me seem like a raging alcoholic.

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.

We were on the Dream in February. We all went behind the bar to make 1 drink each and at the end we had a specialty shot. The two drinks that DH and I made were the only two we tasted besides the shot. Our mixology class was in the skyline bar. We also did the Tequila tasting which we really enjoyed. We noticed that the margarita glasses were much smaller that the class we took in 2011.

Do you sign up at guest services when you first board the ship for these classes or at the bar?

I signed up at guest services after boarding the Dream, around 2 pm. All of the tastings still had openings.

My husband did the Wine and Beer Tastings on the Magic a few weeks ago. He loved both and thought it was totally worth the $15. He was a bit tipsy after both tastings (he's a weak drinker )

When typically were the tastings? At sea days? I read on a TR that one was while at port- about 2pm in Bahamas - I guess I want to do things in port and the tastings.
