Where do you find the list of the tastings/classes offered? Or do you only learn that once you board?

Well I'd day your class was run very different then. So if you cruise and did it again I will say you prob will get 5 drinks each. Back in 2012 on the Fantasy the bartender doing to class made everyone 5 drinks and then called people up to make drinks. This last time on the Fantasy March we had it in skyline and 4 people went behind the bar and made each of the 5 different drinks

Is this something I could do through the concierge (since we're concierge level) or would I do it on my own?

If anyone is truly interested, I'd recommend signing up as soon as you board. My wife and I tried to reserve a Mixology spot on our 4/20 Eastern on the Fantasy at 12:30 and they were already sold out.

We asked to be put on a waiting list (they didn't offer) and we were told there were already quite a few people on the waiting list. Nevertheless, we got a call on Wednesday that they added a class for Thursday afternoon (our last sea day).

I'm glad to hear that ours wasn't the norm. I would love to give it another try. After reading about everyone's experience on DIS, I was surprised at how ours turned out.

This must be a popular stunt. Last July on the Dream DW and I did martini tasting up in Meridian the shuffled downstairs fir tequila. Thank goodness for the mini buffet outside! We were smiling and feeling no pain at late seating.

We did the mixology class on the Wonder in March and it was AWFUL!! After months of reading the rave reviews on DIS we signed up the second we boarded. DH and I were looking forward to it since we had my mom with us to babysit DD. When we arrived all the drinks were already made and lined up at our seats and they were warm. I thought it was going to be a hands on class so I was disappointed. Despite the generous portions if you don't like whisky or rum it doesn't matter because half were whisky and the other half were rum. DH doesn't like rum so I drank his, and all three of us (my brother joined us) don't like whisky so those drinks went to waste. I really didn't learn anything because the bartender had a very heavy accent and we couldn't understand a word he said (Don't flame me- both my parents were born in another country and have heavy accents so I sympathize). My 25 year old brother (who looked forward to this since it was the only non character thing we did) thought it was so boring he left after 5 minutes. I know this is not the norm but this was the biggest waste of $45 and we would have been much happier spending that at the bar drinking drinks that we actually like!

I'll second this. We were on the same cruise and tried for Mixology and didn't get it. We ended up doing the Martini tasting and Tequila tasting. Both were enjoyable.

That's interesting. We were there and signed-up right we went got on-board. When we went to the class he commented how it was a small group. We had 15 people.
