Best Bartender on Fantasy

We are sailing on the Jan 19th Western Fantasy Cruise. Last summer we met Bonny the bartender on our Alaska Wonder Cruise. He was wonderful, and we were wondering if anyone had a great bartender experience on the Fantasy...

I second Novak! When we were on the Fantasy in October he was in Skyline. Had a great time doing his mixology class. You can book classes onboard, we walked directly to guest services upon embarkation.

Have fun.

They do rotate to the different bars. Ask one of the other bartenders and they would be able to tell you where he is.

We loved Nur on the Magic on our 2011 cruise. He was in Sessions and it was great to sit and chat with him. On our 2012 cruise he was in the bar on the pool deck (Pinocchio's I think) . It was great that we got to see him but we couldn't sit there and enjoy a drink.

Smile Bonny's Appletini

My husband and I just got back from our very first cruise ever on the Disney Dream where we met Bonny the bartender at Meridian. We took his martini tasting session and LOVED all of the drinks he prepared!!! Does anyone know how he made his appletini for girls? We know that he had sour apple pucker and Kettle One Vodka, but we can't remember what else he added to make it sweeter for females. Any ideas???? THANK YOU!!!!

I'm not sure what being a woman has to do with liking sweeter drinks but typically bartenders will add a bit of simple (syrup, literally water and sugar heated together to form a liquid mixture) to a drink if a customer requires it to be sweeter.

Our favorites were both Billie and Vanessa (in Oh La La) but they may have been rotated.

Not only for making good drinks, but because they were amazing and kept us laughing with stories.
