Private Mixology

I am interested in hearing from anyone who has personally organised a private mixology session for their cruise group. I am trying to organise one for our Fantasy cruise in October. I understand that we need a minimum of 30 people but am really trying to establish ahead of time what info I will need to give Disney about the others in the group (if any) and how payment works. The Email I got from DCL siad that private bookings need to be paid prior to sailing, is that true? Or is it possible to just have the amount charged to each person's onboard ship account?

I would be grateful for any information you can give me about how it works, many thanks

Hummm, 30 people... If I remember on our Spring Break Fantasy cruise we had 22 people in the Skyline Lounge and it was packed. I can't see 30 people in the Skyline Lounge for a private Mixology session.

I think the private mixology sessions are done in the Tube/Evolution.

Here is the info I received from DCL:



Thank you for choosing the Disney Fantasy for your vacation!

We can definitely arrange a private mixology for your group, a full hour for this event, must have a minimum of 25, maximum of 40 per session/class. Each participant will be charged $15.00 to their onboard account whether they show-up or not.

I will need names & stateroom #'s. (Or reservation #'s)

Please let me know, what date & time would you prefer?

I will file your request for now, and get back with you 30 days prior to sail date to process your request.

We just did a private mixology group on our June 8th cruise on the Fantasy. We had 35 people in our group. It was fantastic!! When we showed up they collected our KKTW cards and ran them through for payment.

They did a champagne tasting in Pink on the Fantasy's MV. It worked the same way as posted with the charge being made to the person's OB account. They needed names and room numbers.

I am in the process of arranging this for our Fantasy cruise in August. I was told 25-40 people at $15 each. All that is needed is the name and stateroom numbers. We were also asked for 2 days and times. So far 45 people have signed up.

That is all great info, thank you. I have had and Email from DCL but was just confused about how it would be paid since the Email mentioned paying before you sailed (I love my cruising group but I wasn't prepared to cover the cost of their drinking )

We currently have 29 signed up so I'm guessing it would be sensible to set a cut-off date, then Email DCL with the details? Does anyone know if more people can be added at a later date? Or once on board?

Hey Pitt Crew! That WAS a great Mixology class, was it not? Still missing our wonderful week! (It's Bruce by the way.)
