Yes. You sign up for them on the ship. An between the two, I enjoyed the tequila tasting more. It was very informative (we had Oscar on the Dream) and for 15 dollars we got a little tipsy. Oscar was an amazing presenter/mixologist and we call the high end margaritas he taught us to make Oscar-itas in his honor!

We've done both and it depends on which type of alcohol you prefer. We are not big tequila drinkers but enjoyed the tasting but we alway prefer martini tasting. A lot of it depends on who the presenters are. We've had great ones, some okay ones and only one where we wouldn't go back.

I agree that it really depends on the type of drink you prefer. I tend to like girly umbrella drinks, so the martini one is good for me.

As far as the presenter goes, it's just luck of the draw. I've had one that was excellent and one that was just so-so.

I've only done the martini tasting. I was happy with it because I didn't know much about martinis or if I'd like them. We tried 5 or 6 martinis. The chocolate martini was so yummy.

I've done both and they were probably my favorite tastings. The tequila one was a bit better, bc our presenter was more informative. I think it depends ALOT on the bartender doing the class. I did discover my favorite new drink, a sidecar, at the martini tasting, though.
