LOTS of bars, don't worry, you don't HAVE to be your own bartender. But its cheaper to bring a bottle (or, apparently six or twelve) so a lot of people do it.

Order fruit from room service, get juice at breakfast, add your rum and boom a delicious cocktail that you of course are enjoying in the privacy of your room!

We bring wine, champagne, captain morgan's, coconut rum and like a flavored vodka (vanilla or citrus?) and maybe beer. Lots of good mixes with coke for the rums. Good mix with the vodka and sprite. I also started ordering stoli and gingerale to help with the stomach in rougher seas.

It's always good to stock up while in port too

Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area. Guests who arrive in the dining room with a bottle of champagne or wine that has been brought on board will be charged a corking fee of $20.00 per bottle.

If you knew you were going to get backlash why post? Most of us on here are grown ups and know the rules. The poster asked a very innocent question and said nothing about consuming in public areas! I just don't get why you would try to turn a simple question into a debate!

IMHO It is a good reminder. Please remember that these boards have both Veteran Cruisers and Newbies. I have never cruises before and I love hearing all the stories, rule breaking or not. But don't assume that everyone knows all the rules. And if you don't like the gentle reminder, do as my Children do, roll you eyes and say "yes Mom".....lol

Now I was thinking what I could mix Swedish fish vodka with! But I know for sure that I'll have my whipped cream with orange juice..delish!

Unless PrincessShmoo is on board monitoring what we do with the booze we bring on board, it's cool to wander the ship with your homemade cocktail, glass of wine, or beer.

Brought a bottle of Coconut Rum aboard last time and used it with the following.

1/2 cup filled with Hi-C punch from drink station
1/4 cup filled with banana/strawberry mix ice cream.
Add Rum to taste and stir with straw until well mixed

Voila! Instant Frozen Drink!

(Sometimes I used saved Cranberry Juice from breakfast!)

I know the chocolate ice cream was used to make Frozen Mud Slides but I don't know how to make a mudslide.

This last cruise I had two bottles of rum in my room but never opened them.

I got hooked on Conch Coolers and that kept me busy

Yep. And if you are going to roll your eyes, remember two things - 1) Its particularly important that you don't bring glass near the pool decks - just don't carry glass around - far too many sandaled and barefoot feet. And 2) Disney doesn't HAVE to permit alcohol aboard and could easily confiscate it as part of bag checks - don't be so obnoxious about ignoring the rules that you spoil it for everyone else - and yourself for future trips.

Cubre Libre
Rum brought from home.
Coke from the drink fountain.
Lime for the lunch buffet.
Mixed it myself in the room and walked around the ship drinking it, then went back, and made a second drink.

peachy screwdrivers...

My husband did a beer exchange with some fellow DISers so we had a nice variety of beer, and in addition we would get orange and cranberry juice with our morning coffee delivery and then mix it with vodka and peach schnapps later in the afternoon. Simple and yummy.

My honey made us his own margarita mix for our own sail away party as a family on our veranda. Tequila, Grand Marnier (I think) and a squirt of the 'lime shaped' lime juice (can't bring fruit on board). It didn't have all the sugar and salt of the premixed kinds and packed a wallop. I like margaritas on rocks myself. Otherwise, we had a glass of wine or some diet coke with spiced rum we brought on board.
