I've picked up on several good pointers thanks to the posts.... 1) we are prepared for the Pirate party, 2) bringing "magic bullet" for margaritas, smoothies etc, 3) carrying on our adult beverages, 4) Palo sounds great but any idea of cost will help. Thank you all for input. I searched around the site and all I have found out is the cost to enter Palo is $15 and it's Italian cuisine. p.s. this will be our first cruise - 7 day eastern Caribbean, wife, 19yr son & 9yr son.
