This sounds so fun! I wish there was one on our upcoming cruise!

A pink wardrobe, a sparkling tiara AND a flute...filled with tiny bubbles?
That's all you need.....then you take a picture and put it in a pink frame in your bar. hahaha.
This was my 4th Champagne Girls tasting that I hosted on the April Hawaii cruise. We had 95 ladies attending.
We also had "cabana boys" to pour our champagne for us. Here they are with our Mascot, Sassy Bubbles.
What a fun idea! Thanks for sharing!
We never seem to get on the same schedule for cruising!
As an original member, I've enjoyed the BIG EVENTS so much. I've also done a couple of modest 'meets' where we showed up in PINK (on the Dream) in our boas and tiarras and just ordered from the bar menu. Plan to do this again at Oh La La! on the Fantasy in December.
I understand, on the Fantasy Maiden Voyage, DCL determined that they would do a 'tasting' for that group and set it up just like a martini/wine tasting and everyone paid like they would for the regular ones.(but it was just the CG group that was at the event). If anyone was there and could clarify on that it would be appreciated.
Jackie, this was posted by Terrie on 3/8/12. She is the one who organized the CG on the Fantasy maiden voyage. They held it in Oh La La and men were included. Here's what she had to say:
Oh La La does look like it will be fun and goes perfectly with a PCG meet on the Fantasy. The men are all being good natured about it and ribbing each other about feather boas, tiaras and wearing pink I think it should make for an interesting picture in the end
We initially had 65 sign up. Of those 15 or so were men. Sippers $5 and Guzzlers $10. I requested DCL to charge my stateroom for everything. When DCL got back to me they said our max was 40-50. They said they would require a guest list by 3/26 (we sail 3/31) with cabin numbers for each participant and they would charge $20 per person no cancellations, non refundable even if they don't show. They have not told me what the $20 per person includes or doesn't include. I have sent an e-mail back for clarification. I was told they did the same thing on the WBTA cruise.
I know we will have a blast! I am really looking forward to it and so are the rest of the "girls"
Then Bev/Dylan'sMom wrote:
I was on the wbta & this was the option we were given as well. It included a private venue with free pouring of 4 different types of champagne/sparkling wine for one hour.
So you could have DCL conduct it and charge $20 per person on their KTTW cards and just go with their flow....... OR you can go as a small group to Oh La La and just have everyone pick their own by the glass. Whatever works for you and your group.
I hope this helps.
Jackie, that is correct. We took over ooh la last with our group. The person leading was fabulous and a great sport...we had a few guys in our group. They had to wear feather boas and tiaras....even the sommelier wore one! We topped it off with a photo on the grand staircase with Princess Tiana....we were the talk of the ship and I think thdywere finding pink feathers all week!
Here's a question I had asked Terrie:
That is different. We're not doing it that way. I'm collecting cash at the door and putting it on my stateroom bill. Did you pick out your own champagne? I always do that. Maybe because you're in the champagne bar? No matter what, you're going to have an awesome time. I can't wait to see your pictures. Have fun!!!!!!
Here's her reply:
I know. i requested putting it on my stateroom bill and planned to collect at the door. I am not being given that option Maybe it is because they put us in the champagne bar. Not sure. I am just happy they are accommodating us Nope they said the champagne selection will be done by the on board beverage team. I agree! I think we will have a blast no matter what! I will definteily share pictures with your group here. Thank you again for everything!!!

I have left quite a few pink feathers behind at our CG events as well. hahaha.
EllaEnchanted, I think we are on the same NYC - Canada cruise in September. We are cruising out of NYC on September 7th. Please, please, please let me know if you are going to do one of these events. This is the first time I have heard about this and I would be so interested in attending. I am already picking out my pink outfit.
Thanks so much.
Hi Linda, YES we are on the same cruise out of NYC going to Canada on Sept 7th. But unfortunately, I'm not doing a Champagne Girls tasting on that cruise. I just did one on the Hawaii cruise with 95 ladies. It was very expensive and a lot of work. I had fun and it was worth it, but since this is only a 5 night cruise, I wanted to just enjoy the cruise without the worry about hosting a big party. I'm so sorry to disappoint you. Maybe we can meet and go to Diversions or Sessisons and order some champagne by the glass and wear pink and have an informal party. What do you think?
Sorry to hear there will not be an official event on the Canadian cruise but I totally understand about you wanting to relax on this cruise. I am sure your events are fun but alot of work. I would love to meet up for a drink (I will still wear something pink too).
Looking forward to this cruise and meeting you.
You could always host the event if you'd like to. I'll give you all the info and then I'll just come to your event.
Thanks for understanding about my not wanting to do another one on this cruise. It's a short cruise. My last one on the Hawaii cruise had 95 ladies. It was a lot of work and a lot of money. I just want to chill on this cruise and not worry about anything.
I would love to wear pink and meet for some champagne drinks too. What is your stateroom number? Mine is 5122. I'll call you and we can plan something once onboard.
Oh man, I'm going to HAVE to get me some of those!!!
P.S. I have that same Mickey Hand, it holds my IPhone at work!!
Love this idea...so fun!
