Eat before you go - you'll need a good base of food to help with the absorption of all that alcohol.

I did the martini tasting aboard the Dream and it was really great.

The CM put out a lot of extra sets of glasses assuming others would come in at the last minute but in fact, a couple of people didn't show up. I sat at a table set for 4, another couple sat at another table set for 4 and the last 3 people sat at 2 other tables set for 4.

The bartender had pre-poured the first 2 drinks and maybe even the third one. He let us drink whatever of the extra stuff we wanted.

I went back to the cabin feeling pretty fine that afternoon

My BFF did two tastings back to back one day (I couldn't join her because I was pregnant). She had a VERY good afternoon.

Private Mixology = Awesome

Our cruise meet did a private mixology which took place in Outlook Bar. It was so much fun, and what a deal for only $15. We made 5 different drinks, but actually got a couple bonus when extra was made or bottles were left on the table. We did have to have a 25 person minimum for them to do the private class, but it was a good get together for the DIS group adults. I wanted to do the margarita/tequila tasting, but unfortunately enjoyed a little too much of that in Cozumel

I would like to do a tasting with my daughter but she is just shy of her 21th. How strict are they about age?

They are very strict. Under 21 = no drinking.

There was a whole tread about the European sailings and parents being able to sign permission for drink at a lower age. 18 I assume.

Parents from the European countries, they won't let US guests do it apparently.

I would go with the assumption that the rule is no and be "happy" IF they let you do this (Remember it's been two years so things change) If you go with the "they will let us" and then discover they won't it's generally more upsetting
